The Bar Cart: An Entertaining Essential

A bar cart has become an entertaining essential - and for good reason! For starters, when well styled, bar carts can be a pretty and eye catching area in your home, one that can also be a conversation starter for guests. On a functional level I love having a bar cart set up away from the kitchen area when I entertain. This tends to help keep the kitchen free of people standing around chatting or mixing drinks - leaving more room for the people doing the real work - cooking! There are plenty of beautiful options for bar carts out there now from vintage to new, but you don't need a piece that is specifically made to be a bart cart. You can get creative and using something as simple as a tray setup as a bar area on a side table or console. Here are some of my favorite bar cart arrangements.

Check back in to my next post next week to see some of my favorite bar cart options and entertaining essentials!
