Start with a bar cart

In order to "style" your very own bar cart, you need to own one in the first place! They come in tons of shapes, sizes, and colors, so nab one that matches your personal style.

Pick your signature cocktail!

To get started, we think that rather than stock an entire bar's worth of liquor, that you should pick just one or two "signature" cocktails that you love to make and always have those ingredients on hand for guests. Bottles of liquor and mixers that match your aesthetic are a perfect start, but be sure to add a few vintage decanters, and a martini shaker to keep the look eye-catching and clean! We also love the idea of coordinating cocktail glassware.  (See more of this cart at Dream Green DIY Blog.)
A fresh basket of lemons is always a perfect go-to for some added color and to keep you garnish-ready! See more of this cart at Dream Green DIY Blog.

Get detailed!

Next up, you'll want to include practical yet stylish details for the perfect impromptu cocktail party. A chic ice bucket is a definite must, and we love the idea of having vintage swizzle sticks on hand, and perhaps some cloth cocktail napkins to keep your look elegant and stylish.

Accessorize Your Cart

Finally, you'll want to add some fun accessories to your cart to make it personal and fun. For a quirky yet unexpected touch, we love the idea of a brass animal figurine. A piece of art behind your cart is always a must, so when in doubt, vintage Vogue Magazine posters are always an affordable yet chic route!
