Stylish Bar Cart Essentials

It's that time of year again. Time for holiday parties, and visiting friends and family. It all adds up to non-stop entertaining. The key to any successful party is making sure everything is accessible not only to your guests, but to you as well (so you don't have to miss out on any of the fun).

One item that I have been longing to purchase is a bar cart. It's uses are endless. As well as being a place to serve drinks (inside or out), it can also serve as a craft station, mail organizer, homework station or nightstand. So, when Chairish, an online marketplace for vintage and used furniture, approached me to do a blog on bar carts I was flattered, and excited. 

Setting up a bar cart for entertaining can be easy if you stock it with the right things. First, it is important to choose the right bar cart. Having one on wheels with lipped shelves are key. The wheels allow it to be easily transported where you need it, and the lipped shelves prevent items from falling off.

In addition to the right style of cart, you need some great accessories to get the party going. A stylish set of bar tools, an eye catching ice bucket, a beautiful shaker and a unique bottle opener are all key ingredients to a well styled bar cart. Any well stocked cart should have a bartenders guide to making drinks, however, for some real fun try a mixology game that will help you concoct your own unique libation. Don't forget to add some statement bar glasses as well as some coasters for setting down your drink. Last but not least, equip your bar cart with a tray to corral items or serve drinks, and a bar themed tea towel for wiping up spills.

Check out these great finds to make any bar cart the hit of the party.
