Building a Bar

One of my favorite things about our tiny apartment is our bar cart. It is small, but functional. My husband, a sometimes bartender, loves to have a fully stocked bar and I appreciate the cart's ability to be functional and cute. Right now our bar is a dark espresso wood, but the colorful bars at Society Social have given me a lot of ideas and I think I will be painting ours fire engine red. You don't need a cart to create your own bar. I have seen really nice bars set up on fireplace mantles, tray tables, sidebars and even counter tops. Here are a few things to help complete your bar:

Hand Painted Wine Decanter

Matching hand Painted Shot Glasses

Champagne Bottle Plate - perfect for cherries, limes and olives

Kikkerland Graffiti Cocktail Shaker

Custom Lacquer Tray from Iomoi

Boatman Geller Monogrammed Ice Bucket

Disaronno Amaretto - A MUST for my bar!
