I'm mildly obsessed with bar carts and it’s versatility for parties. I decided to share my tips on how to set up your cart for intimate party Moments.
Step 1. | What’s to drink?
Don't do the most. The bar cart is not the place you learn how to be a mixologist. Keep it moving… people are waiting.
Never have bottles of alcohol no one drinks. Know your guest
Keep your mixers simple. Coke, cranberry, spritzer… and maybe something fruity
Step 2. | The Essentials
Depending on how crazy your guest may be, they might need glasses to drink from. I love heavy, and short cocktail glasses; but it’s always fun to add drink ware with odd shapes or textures. *Don’t forget the straws!
You’ll need napkins. Think of something colorful or with funny text
Stirring sticks, cocktail picks, a muddler, and a cocktail shaker (with strainer)
Ice bucket with scooper. I like to keep this on the bottom shelve
Step 3. | The Pop! (of fun…)
This is the fun part… to me at least. You can add some color and personality to the cart based on the theme of your party, or just because. Make a statement!
I love greenery/ fresh flowers or even balloons
Use some fresh fruit like lemons, strawberries or oranges
If there’s room, add a sweet snack like cupcakes or donuts
