How To: Christmas Bar Cart

Christmas is the perfect occasion for entertaining, and a festive bar cart is an absolute must! Imagine your guests’ surprise when you roll this festive beauty into the room – it’s filled with everything you need for a good time, including chilled champagne, iridescent champagne flutes and even a Gingerbread man party drinking game! I think the key to putting together a beautiful bar cart is sticking with (somewhat) of a color scheme. For this one, we went with rose gold! The rose gold tinsel is less than $12 but adds SO much to the bar cart! In fact, everything shown here is from Walmart and very affordable. I really love these glass tumblers because they look designer – but they’re only $15!

Here are a few tips to really make your bar cart memorable for guests:

  • Make a statement with your glassware! Most glassware is devoid of color, but finding a few statement pieces in brighter hues will instantly make your bar cart stand apart from others
  • Less is usually more. Achieve a high-end look by keeping your cart clear of clutter and show off only the prettiest bottles and glasses!
  • It’s all in the details. Colorful straws and custom coasters add signature style and function.
  • Let there be light! A fun way to dress up your bar cart is with some fairy lights like these battery-powered ones.
  • Know your audience. I always think about my guests’ preferences beforehand… I know which people like red wine, white wine, margaritas, etc. and try to have those specific ingredients stocked!
