How to Style a Bar Cart

So I decided the time has come to finally get a bar cart. I have been talking about getting one for a long while but never actually went through with it. While I was shopping for the bar cart, booze and decorative accents I found some tips for you guys. Hope they help if you are looking to add a bar cart to your home!

  1. Pick a color scheme ( Mine is ocean blues with pops of yellow.) You will see the blues later..
  2. Add flowers
  3. Add fruit ( I landed on lemons because I love lemons in my drinks and it’s also my accent color, so duh!)
  4. Put the pretty bottles of booze in the front. I love our little bottle of Limonchella so I decided that one needed to be in the front
  5. Pick a vase or a statement piece. ( I decided on lots of crystal so I chose a vase with a solid color and pops of gold.) I purchased this at Athome stores – it was also under $15!
  6. Hang a painting or a gallery wall above the cart ( I hung a beach abstract painting that I painted myself above the bar cart. It makes me feel like I’m at the beach and makes me happy.)
  7. Place some straws, wine keys and stirrers in a pretty cup. ( I used a mini mason jar.)
  8. Add candles. ( I got my adorable tea light candle holders from Athome stores and I love them so much.

    I love your bar cart! I need to get myself one! I have a fabulous bowl and some sake glasses that would work perfectly.

    Love your bar cart and I’m quite impressed that you painted that picture on your own…I can barely do paint by numbers!
