Festive Bar Cart

Boy, do I love a bar cart. In our home, we currently have three bar setups in three different rooms (we're not alcoholics, just like a good cocktail and a great glass of wine). I was actually trying to convince my husband that I needed another one, but he finally put his foot down. I just love the retro, kitschy vibe that they bring to our home, and the fact that they can be styled and dressed up for the holidays and seasons! 

We're hosting Thanksgiving at our new house this year, so I wanted to prepare a perfect Thanksgiving bar cart that also doubled as a dessert station! Since I was limited on space, it took some planning to figure out how to best arrange everything so as to incorporate the dessert aspect, as well as wine for dinner AND our signature cocktail for the evening, which will be a maple bourbon cider punch. 

I used a lot of items that we already had around the house, like delicate fairy lights, autumn leaves, mini pumpkins, a cake stand, bar books, a plaid banner and various barware. I also found the perfect candle to add to the cart to brighten things up a bit! I've recently added a fun cocktail shaker and matching bar tools set that help to tie everything together. 

I separated the top tier and bottom tier by putting all of the wine and liquor on the bottom, as well as wine glasses and the cocktail pitcher that the punch will go in. On the top, I added a cake stand to house the pumpkin pie and the miscellaneous bar items like the cocktail shaker, tools and the ice bucket. 

I'm really excited to show off this bar cart on Thanksgiving! I think it will add just the right amount of fun, warmth and character that we're looking for. How do you add an extra bit of holiday cheer to your parties?
