Essentials for a ‘Tasteful’ Bar Cart!

Essentials for a ‘Tasteful’ Bar Cart!

Us ‘winefarers’ love home entertaining and we believe nothing makes more of a statement at an intimate gathering than the bar experience.  This is because it’s not just a place to make a cocktail or pour a glass of wine, but a time when you are interacting with other guests and can ‘make a drink’ and even a personal connection.  How many times have you said, “Another glass of bubbly?”  I’m sure plenty.   Your bar is your chance to show off your personal style and since it is the center focus of your party, wouldn’t you want it to be spectacular?

So, since your bar cart is an essential part of entertaining, here are a few ideas on prepping your bar for your next soirée.

Essentials for creating a ‘Tasteful’ bar!

  1. Always have Pellegrino glass bottles

  2. 2 bottles of nice champs (Veuve Cliquot, Ruinart, Moet etc.)

  3. Add fake limes in a nice dish

  4. A pop of color can add a nice touch to your bar. Try adding a colorful flower in a vase

  5. Incorporate some sort of interesting glassware

  6. Throw a few fab crystal wine stoppers on for decoration or slices of geode coasters {here} in a fun color to go with flowers

  7. Come up with a theme and make sure everything complements each other. I love working with metallics, such as gold with a bright pop of color of fuchsia or cobalt blue.
