I'll Drink to That...

bar cart
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12.
With holiday and party season on the horizon, it is high time I get my act together and set up a bar area in our apartment.  If we had the space, I'd love a whole bar cart, but with our small space abode, I'm limited to a bar tray.  To set up your bar space, start with the foundation... cart, tray, or both.  Add some basic building blocks: glass decanters, funky old-fashioned or high ball glasses, and of course shot glasses.  Make sure you know what you are doing {The American Bar by Charles Schumann} and you have the tools to do it {muddler, stirrer, strainer, etc...}.  Add a few brightly colored accents in the form of napkins and coasters.  Finally, DON'T forget the booze!  Read Martha's article {#12} for great tips on stocking a bar.  Below is my first step to building my bar tray...
010 This is the start of my DIY bar tray beautification process. More to come later this week.

Do you have a bar in your home? Tray or cart? Any tricks you use when stocking it? One trick I do plan on using for parties is to copy what Victoria did here.  Amazing, right?

Hope you all had a fantastic weekend!

Cheers,

Julie

  7. I can't wait to see your bar tray!! I could definitely use some DIY inspiration. We keep our bar stuff in our cabinet, so it's hidden away. Once we have a house though...a bar cart will definitely be ordered. xo
