6 Ways to Decorate Your Bar Cart for the Holidays

December 4, 2019

One of the the first things Alex & I bought when we moved in together was a bar cart. We both love entertaining and I love decorating – so it’s been a lot of fun styling our bar cart and getting to decorate it for the holidays. (You can check out how I decorated my bar cart for fall if you’re interested!)

I’ve finally got our bar cart set up for Christmas, and instead of just sharing my bar cart with you all I have teamed up with 5 other fashion & lifestyle bloggers to share our holiday bar carts giving you 6 ways to decorate your bar cart for the holidays! Stay tuned to the end of this post for links to everyone’s bar carts!

My Holiday Bar Cart:

There are a few key things to talk about as far as how I decorated my bar cart for the holidays:

1. Christmas Wreath:
One of the easiest ways to make your bar cart feel more festive is to add a Christmas wreath. We have a fake wreath on our door, but for this indoor one I opted to get a real wreath from a local florist. I love the smell of fresh evergreen!

2. Christmas Ornaments (Gold Balls):
I love this glass jar. It’s under $25 & I highly recommend it as an addition to your bar cart since you can fill it with different things depending on the season. For the holidays, as you can see, I filled it with a few gold Christmas ornaments (these are my gold ornaments – they’re great if you’re looking for a bunch of shatterproof ornaments. The shade is champagne gold which is a really pretty light gold.)

3. Christmas Tree Glass Candy Jar:
I found this candy jar at Winners/ Home Sense and fell in love with it! I can’t find it online, but definitely check your local Home Sense if you’re interested. I filled ours with candy canes and chocolates because, let’s be honest, if I’m making a drink I probably want a sweet treat as well lol. Plus a few of the cocktails I’ve been making this season are garnished with a candy cane (check out this vanilla vodka mudshake cocktail!)

4. “Its Beginning to Look a Lot Like Cocktails” Sign:
This was another Winners/Home Sense find, but I found this similar small wooden sign, and this colorful wooden cocktails sign.

5. Mini Christmas Tree:
I couldn’t resist adding a mini Christmas tree to the bottom of my bar cart. I’ve linked a few similar mini trees below for ya!

6. Glass Writers:
These aren’t strictly holiday decor, but rather my favorite new addition to my bar cart. Instead of using those wine glass charms to identify whose glass is whose, I just found these wine glass writers and I am in love! Guests can write their name on their glass (or really whatever they want) and it’s smudge free but washes off easily with soap and water. I feel like every bar cart should have these!

    I think I need to start by getting a bar cart haha! Right now I have a bar-style mini dining table in my townhome, and the side of it is where I store all of my alcohol, glasses, and even my coffee items. But in the future, I gotta get a bar cart to decorate each season!
