Bar Cart Essentials!

One of my favorite features in home decor are bar carts,
I shared our current bar cart in our bar room tour,
It is very industrial {my hubby found it at a dumpster at work a few years ago}

The hubby is not satisfied with it and wants a nicer one, 
and to use our current cart for brewing supplies 

Of course Pinterest is CHOCK FULL of amazing bar carts,
here are a few of my favorites:

I love that this bar cart has a lamp!

Unlike my struggle with styling side tables,
I love styling bar carts!
 I like that they can be themed, usually have a vintage vibe and contain the party!

So when Charish contacted me to style my dream bar cart and I went on to their website,
there was no shortage of vintage inspiration!

I went with this Hollywood Regency Brass and Steel Bar Cart {$1,499},
I love the cone details, reminds me of beer hops =)
I also love the wheels!

My esthetic of my dream bar cart is mixed metals, plaid, and varying silhouettes!
My Bar Cart Essentials:
decanters: Vintage Brass Plate Tantalus Bar Set {$150}
tasting glasses / punch glasses: Brass Punch Set {$149}
coasters: Decorative Florentine Coasters {$39}
glasses: Tartan Acrylic Double Old Fashion {$89}
trays: Vintage Antiqued Mirror Vanity Trays {$40}
ice bucket: Chrome & Brass Covered Lockable Ice Bucket {$99}
shaker / other tools: Vintage Travel Bar Set {$59}

I love vintage items that can be repurposed and further appreciated as artwork,
that is what I would do with these vintage Italian Hand Embroidered Burlesque Napkins {$99},
I would float mat them so you can still see the scalloped details and frame them for my bar area!

Of course some Evelyn Henson prints with champagne would also be awesome on/above the bar cart,
as blogged here.

According to my inspiration, flowers are always a bonus on a bar cart!

What are your bar cart essentials?
Do share!

Thank you Charish for the inspiration!
