HOW TO CREATE THE PERFECT BAR CART AT HOME

Often when it comes to entertaining, the one thing that gets the party and conversation going is drinks and snacks. Bar carts do not live up to their potential, mostly because function outweighs form. While the uses of this home accessory is quite obvious, it is in the name after all, by adding a few key accessories, your bar cart can quickly become a focal point in your home.
 

When it comes to a bar cart in your home, serving style is just as important and serving beautiful and delicious drinks. We have curated a list of things to consider when styling your very own bar cart.

 1. USE INGREDIENTS AS DÉCOR

When styling a bar cart, how it looks is almost as important as what the drinks taste like. We like to add pops of colour to any drink trolley by using ingredients that will eventually become part of the drinks you will be serving. Along with displaying your favorite statement glassware and bottles of spirits, don't forget to add natural elements to your bar cart such as a glass vase of flowers, a bowl of citrus for use as garnish, or even snacks like a dish of walnuts or some sweets. Adding these small décor elements will instantly elevate the style of your drinks trolley.

 2.THE BALANCE OF HIGH AND LOW

As with all things in life, balance is key. Your bar cart should be no exception to this rule. When styling your drinks trolley try and balance out the height of objects you are placing on your drinks trolley. If you choose to style all your bottles on the right-hand side of your drinks trolley, balance that out by placing short tumbler glasses on the left.

 3.STYLE WITH THE SEASON

A few easy changes can transform your bar cart to adhere to the seasons. Keeping your bar cart season appropriate will not only help you decorate but it will set the tone for your home. If you have having a pool party in summer, look at styling your bra cart with bright bold colours, add some fun décor items such as mini drinks umbrellas to get your guests in the spirit. If you are having a themed party, your bar cart is the one place you can go all out.

 4.WEAVE IN STATEMENT GLASSWARE

Most glassware you'll find is devoid of color, but taking the time to find a few statement pieces in brighter hues will instantly make your bar cart stand apart from the others. Bespoke glassware such as crystal glasses are a great way of adding a subtle décor touch to your bar cart. Not only will it look great on your bar cart but your guests will be in awe of your stylish glasses.

5.SOMETIMES LESS IS MORE

If you are looking to achieve a high end look for your bar cart, we suggest keeping clutter on your bar cart to a minimum. For a sleek high end look style a few statement glassware items along with a few bottles.
