Since our renovation, I have spent all of my down time nesting and fluffing and trying to make our house feel like a home. I’m not quite ready to entertain, but you better believe I’ve been planning a summer soiree in my mind (after we finish the patio…it never ends). Until then, here are some fab finds for making your bar beautiful & a recipe for my favorite cocktail—preferably sipped in a vintage champagne coupe, while cooking up something indulgent. Make sure you scroll down to see the amazing video created by my sister-in-law!
Our bar cart found a new home in the nook below our stairs.
When styling a bar cart, I have found it easiest to start with one color, such as fun glasses, and then work around that. Then, you can mix in neutrals (think silver, gold, black, white, crystal) to give it a more cohesive and sophisticated flair. Mixing in vintage (I’m obsessed with Chairish) and new will fool everyone into thinking you had professional help!
1. Gilt Italian Tray (decorative and useful for transporting cocktails to the patio) // 2. Pink Petal Champagne Coupes (a pop of color sets the tone) // 3. Iridescent Glass Pitchers (works well with the glasses) // 4. Bar Cart (almost idential to mine!) // 5.Quill Bottle Opener (a piece of art that opens a bottle!) // 6. Pom Pom Stirrers (a party in a glass) // 7. Slim Aarons La Dolce Vita (because I’d like to be drinking a cocktail in any of these locations) // 8. Blown Glass Decanter (great to add height)
