Home Bar Necessities

Will and I have been looking for a little bar cart to put beneath our ornate light fixture in the living room for so long. We sadly haven’t found anything, but are still very much on the hunt!

Since we were having friends over the other weekend, I decided to pull out the bar cart we use in our kitchen to hold our microwave and toaster oven and put it in the living room. While it doesn’t look quite right in the space (we’re hoping for something a bit shorter & wider), it was seriously so.much.fun styling it. Here’s how I did it:

Props, props, props: Sure, a bar cart should mostly be functional in nature (hi, alcohol), but it also needs a bit of stylizing with props. I topped it off with two of my favorite cook books, a bowl filled with lemons, marble coasters, and a pretty bud vase.

Add variety. While I have double that number of glasses tucked away in my cabinets, I liked the look of having a few different glasses and only a few of each. Not only does it create visual interest, but also ensures you’re prepared for any drink your guests might want.

Find a place. While most bar carts come on wheels, I’d recommend finding a designated spot for it in your living room or dining room and keeping it there. It will seem much more purposeful that way.

And on that note, I’d like to say cheers to a wonderful next few weeks! I’ll be taking some time off the blog to travel throughout South East Asia and will be back here on March 14th. Can’t wait to share about my travels with you when I am back!
