Bar carts are a beautiful and fun way to ensure a successful holiday party. Festive bar carts will be your favorite portable sidekick, set the stage, create a fun spot for you and your guests to pour your own refreshments and make you the hostess of the year! Best of all, it’s a great way to showcase your style and holiday cheer. Today I will be sharing my tips with you on how to serve your guests in style with the ultimate holiday bar cart.
In a glamorous mood? Go with a bold bar cart!
First things first, pick your favorite liquors – but make sure that the bottles are pretty! What’s more glamorous than some bubbly champagne and crisp white wine!? Pair them with festive flute glasses, and cute gold-rimmed glasses.
How about some fancy white marble coasters and an elegant decanter! This is especially great if your favorite liquor doesn’t come in the prettiest bottle. Place all of the taller bottles and glassware in the back of the cart so that your smaller pieces and decor can be showcased in the front.
Now it’s time for the most fun part! Add in some holiday decor. Use soft white accents and cutesy gold accents to keep this look soft, yet glamorous! Keep the decor tiny, you don’t want your cart to look overcrowded! I even used a small shag rug underneath.
Add a wall piece behind your cart to really complete your space!
Go with something dainty for this look. I had a tough time deciding between this thin gold mirror and this adorable wire hoop wreath – which do you prefer?
How about a wintry farmhouse chic look? Go with a distressed cart!
Fill-er-up with your favorite wine or liquor bottles! If the bottles aren’t so pretty, no worries, get a tin bucket and stick them right in there! Use clear wine and drinking glasses.
Bring in a white ice bucket and other white vases or jars throughout the cart, displayed in bundles to tie the look together. Fill them up with some greenery or white flowers!
Get festive – decorate with neutral, soft-colored trees! Faux cotton garland or stems are a beautiful way to really pull the farmhouse look together.
Time for the wall piece! Try a muted color wreath or even a mini chalkboard! You can write your favorite drink recipe or a festive message, have fun with it! The best part is, you can change it whenever you want!
Place a farmhouse chic bench next to it with a throw pillow and a cozy blanket. Add a metal bucket to the other side and your farmhouse chic space is complete!
Do you prefer traditional bright holiday colors? Try a wood or metal bar cart!
From silky and smooth, to big and bold, red wine is always a sophisticated option to have for your guests during the holidays. Buy some festive colored bottles for the beer drinkers, whiskey for the sippers, or a festive Apple cider mule!
Add your own touch of holiday cheer with wreaths, garland, trees, chocolates, or mini wood signs with a fun message! I used a small wreath on the cart, a bold wall wreath, and a glitter tree! I found this adorable mini sign, “Every day you are my favorite present”, what better place to hang that on than a bottle of wine?! That sure is my favorite gift!
That’s a wrap! I hope my tips made it easier and more fun for you to style the ultimate holiday bar cart – your very own portable sidekick.
