Pretty Packaging. 

Color, pattern and texture all come into play when you are styling your bar cart. So try to find fun and unique bottles, pretty linen napkins, gold rimmed coasters, etc. Have fun with the style and make it personal!

Let’s Play Dress Up.

The best part of any cart is the uniqueness that people find. Vintage bar tools, fun glasses that you found the other weekend at the antique store, or pretty vases. Let it be inviting to your guests to want to come over to your cart and explore and drink!

Make it fun.

Add a chalkboard sign stating what the drink of the day is, add personal photos, or whimsical figurines to really draw people's attention in.
