With the new year off to a great start, and all of the holiday stuff packed away, it’s the perfect time for a new year refresh. We don’t know about you, but our bars were pretty much cleaned out after all of the back-to-back holiday parties. In preparation for upcoming celebrations, we’ve been thinking of ideas for party drink stations. The bar cart trend is here to stay, and a lot of stores have a great variety to choose from. We’ve compiled a list of favorites below which in true Rock Paper Streamers style are both versatile and quirky.
- Kitchen Cart with Wooden Top from Wayfair
- Geo Bottle Stopper Set from West Elm
- Stainless Steel Airplane Stir Stick from Wayfair
- Ice Bucket from Wayfair
- Black and Gold Butler Tray from World Market
- Drinks Please Bar Bells Set from World Market
- Jardin Des Plantes Pedestal Bowl from Anthropologie
- Copper Bar Set from BulbHead
- Metal, Leather and Wood Bar Cart from Target
From the utilitarian cart to the space-saving campaign style butler tray, each one of these carts are multifunctional. When you’re not busy entertaining, the butler tray can act as an accent table to hold coffee table books, flowers or candles. The utility cart can store your kids’ art and school supplies, and could easily be a landing zone for all of your keys, mail and other trinkets.
With Superbowl Sunday coming up and Valentine’s Day right around the corner, these carts can be decorated with colorful accessories to match the theme. Adding a tassel garland with your team colors, or placing a bowl of conversation hearts on your cart can easily transform it for your next celebration.
With a bar cart, your drinks are no longer tucked away on a back counter and less approachable. Instead make your cart a conversation piece by making it a part of the seating area and adding unique accessories such as the fun airplane stir sticks and bar bells. We know we’ll be ringing those often.
Cheers!…get those carts rolling!
We hope your upcoming entertaining includes some of our picks. Let us know your favorites and how you used them at your parties. Be sure to share your photos using #rockpaperstreamers. Happy Shopping!
