Bar Cart Reveal & My New Favorite Summer Drink

Spring Patio Prep (3)

WHISKEY SET | LEWIS ICE BAG & MALLET | GOLD BAR CART | BAR TOOL KIT | BLACK STAINLESS STRAWS | BEE NAPKINS | MARBLE & GOLD COASTERS | LINEN BAR TOWELS

A big part of our “quarantine life” has been renovating little corners of our home, adding a personal touch. One of the first things I purchased was this little bar cart from Amazon, and it has been a blast finding all of the little trinkets and tools to decorate it with. I knew I wanted a two-tier, round design since this would be nestled in the corner of our living room, and this model is fairly small compared to most options I found. I was inspired to use gold accents to add some glam to our living room, since our color pallet is fairly neutral throughout our home.

I added this crystal whiskey decanter set and the basic bar tools to get started. This bar cart has a lower rack for you to hang stemmed glasses, so we may add some martini glasses later on. We also purchased the Lewis ice bag and mallet, which is a fun addition if you enjoy crushed ice rather than cubes (fancy!). For drinks that require a straw, I personally enjoy using the stainless option. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I like the way they make my drink taste colder! These black stainless straws come with cleaning pipes, and we keep them in a glass mason jar on our bar cart.

To keep things neat for us and our guests, we added these fun bee napkins and gold rimmed marble coasters. In addition to the lower rack for stemmed glasses, this cart also has a rod to hang towels if you choose. We have these linen towels  for extra clean-up and a light pop of color.

I love the way that this has made our space come together, and has added something unique to our living space. We’ll definitely be using this for entertaining in the future!

What are some small changes you’ve made to your space?
