How to Style a Bar Cart

Monday, May 31, 2021

Happy Tuesday guys! Today I am going to share with you my bar cart. Styling one is super easy and can be done fairly affordably too.  

Starting with the cart, mine was purchased at Target. They have tons of different styles and so far the quality has been amazing. I did not find my exact one, but this gold one is really close. I also love this gold cart and this gold cart. Acrylic carts are also stylish and ideal for small spaces because they are transparent, they appear like they take up less space. I love this acrylic cart and this acrylic cart. Etsy, Ebay, and thrift/antique stores are other great places to look for a more unique option.

The next thing to decide is how you want the cart styled. Pink is my favorite color so I was originally going to make it VERY pink (hence the pink straws on the bottom), but I decided to do something a little more classic instead to match the rest of my apartment. I love the look of fluted glassware, it is classic and has the perfect 60's/70's look. Mine are from Macy's, but tons of places are selling them right now. West Elm has acrylic ones at a great price and Anthropologie has some with a cute gold twist. I found the perfect matching carafe from Urban Outfitters, but it is sold out. However, this one is almost identical. Etsy also has tons of gorgeous barware if you are looking for something truly vintage. My cocktail shaker was a gift, but this one and this one are really similar. The brass is perfect because it keeps with the 60's/70's classic look.

Next is accents! I knew that I wanted yellow as a pop of color and fresh lemons are the perfect way to do this! Not only are the perfect in mixed drinks, but I also use them every day in my water. To complement this, I added a book from my kitchen: Love & Lemons. Flowers also add a nice touch to the overall look. My vase is from Anthropologie and is the 'short' one. Cocktail napkins are another nice touch. The one hanging on my cart was actually a gift from one of my best friend's wedding. It has a note embroidered on the inside and fits perfectly on the cart. 

Thanks for reading!
