Bar Cart Heaven


These babies are everywhere at the moment and what’s not love? Known as the ‘travelling party’, they’re the perfect addition for those who love to entertain and enjoy a cocktail (or two). The gorgeous Katrina Lewis of Design Seeker shares her top tips for Bar Cart Styling this summer… 

Summer has arrived, and for me that means days spent by the beach, swimming in the pool and entertaining.  It truly is my most favourite time of the year.

If you’re planning to entertain this Summer, I have the perfect item to help make your event loads of fun. The Bar Cart, or Drinks Trolley.

I’ve put together a collection of gorgeous homewares to create the perfect Drinks Trolley for Summer Entertaining.

My favourites from below are the Menu salt and pepper grinders (Bloody Mary’s… yes please!); the China Crushed Bowl (which would look divine filled with wedges of lime) and the Cloud Board to chop those limes!

The Trolley I’ve chosen is from Ikea, and although it comes in a Eucalyptus timber, I’m suggesting to stain it dark (or even paint the timber white) to create a more contemporary and on-trend Scandinavian look.

The bright highball glasses by Jonathan Adler give a sense of quirky fun to this otherwise monochrome scheme, and are perfect for Summer Styling.

I think the Drinks Trolley, or Bar Cart is the perfect item for entertaining this Summer and it’s super simple to pull together.
