A Cocktailer’s Companion

By | July 17, 2013

I’ve got a little bit of an obsession with bar carts; not with the drinking bit but with the super slick styling that’s around at the moment. Here’s a few of my favourites: bar_cart_gallery Image sources:: Left Style Me Pretty Living | Top right Kelly Braman via Style Me Pretty Living | Bottom right Original source unknown via Pinterest

Our 1850′s cottage hasn’t got the space or the style for a large brass cart so I’ve taken inspiration in smaller form. A bar tray can offer all the pizazz of a cart but take up a whole lot less room (and much cheaper to keep well stocked!)

All you need to whip up a similar scene is a few of your favourite tipples, a couple of snazzy glasses, a stash of limes and somewhere to store your straws. Fairly Light Bar Cart

Here’s my effort own effort (taken from my Instagram feed a while ago) The glasses were a bargain from Home Sense about three years ago and the stripy straws are readily available all over the internet. Oliver Bonas provided  the gold forks and the industrial style tray was picked up from Burt’s Homestore in Brighton. Missing from this picture is a little bowl of limes that now have a home on the tray.

I’ve got a whole board on Pinterest just dedicated to alcohol on wheels. Shimmy on over to Pinterest to take a look….

    I love this! Your styling is amazing :) After your bar cart posts I really hope I come across one thats affordable and we have room for, if not I’ll have to find a cute tray to style instead :)

    Totally loving your styling! I even don’t have the space to put a tray filled with beautiful glasses and liquors and straws. I’m so hoping we’ll be able to buy a bigger home in the future so I can start styling my own bar cart too. Love them, did a post about it too a while ago! :-) Great huh?
    Love, Inge x
