A stylish train bar is a must-have for a hostess who likes to entertain guests. Because bar carts are where the party begins, raising the look and function of your cart means the time is right for all. Here’s how to arrange a bar cart to be the focal point of your next social meeting.
1. Start With Bar Tools
The first step to creating a stylish and functional train bar is to fill it with fashionable cocktail tools. Basic tool bars include jigger, shaker, muddler, filter, bottle opener, and bottle opener. Whether you choose a classy or weird look, adjust the tool to your personality. The same is true for coasters, straws and napkins. To complete the set, choose a small ice bucket with finishing that complements the bar wagon, whether it’s polished chrome or natural wood.
2. Stock Up on Drinks and Mixers
Prepare a wagon for the main event: your favorite drink. Typically, this includes the classic brands of vodka, gin, rum, tequila, or whiskey. Maintaining broad choices is a friendly attitude, but sometimes a little more. Limiting your inventory to multiple standouts allows you to raise bets with beautiful packaging and quality flavors. You will want to collect lots of soda water, bitter, and other mixers that match the drinks you consume. It will also offer guests a non-alcoholic alternative.
3. Replace Bottles With Decanters
Now, fill your basket with a container for your spirits. If your liquor and mixer don’t come in stylish bottles, then trade with desanters to provide an unbeatable decorative quality for your cart. Maintain a cohesive range of colors and patterns. If you are a wine enthusiast, skip this step and choose a wine rack or wine bucket in the bottom layer of your wagon.
4. Layer in Barware
Use a variety of beautiful glassware to hold your drink and show off your bar cart style. Colored glasses or metal can enhance the spirit of your cart, while colorless glass implies more classic elegance. You can attach similar glasses to its own angle to create different groups or vary the height and use for unique sketches. At the very least, you want a variety of upscale and old-fashioned glasses. Special servings, such as champagne flutes and wine glasses or margaritas, can be added based on your preferences and social calendar.
5. Fill With Garnishes and Greenery
Compact the style of setting your bar cart with a collection of decorations. Piles of orange ingredients such as lemons, limes, or oranges on a glass plate will add a tinge of color to your screen. Small potted plants of rosemary, mint, and basil are popular and fresh herbs for decorating carts. They will liven up the look and help make you look like an experienced mixologist.
6. Add Height With Sculptural Objects
Decorating a bar wagon is your biggest opportunity to match wagons throughout the room and show off your style. Consider adding a large statement piece such as a statue or flower vase to attract attention. A pile of mixed books filled with delicious drink recipes is perfect for adding variety to the appearance of a cart. It can also act as a basis for small snack trays or terrarium to carry a little more dimension. Paintings or signage can be hung behind the cart to enhance your screen display.
