Christmas Bar Cart Tour with 6 Bloggers!

A Christmas themed bar cart is a great idea this holiday season! Join me on a special “A Merry Little Bar Cart” blog hop styled for the most magical season.

The Christmas season is filled with festivity and usually a lot of entertaining! It can be as casual as family coming to your home or as elaborate as hosting a part for 50! This year regardless of the crowd size think about setting up a bar car to reflect the festive season and encourage your guests to serve themselves 🙂

An adult cocktail or two can ease some tension when people don’t know each or smooth over some of the family dynamics – we all have them! My mom and I ALWAY make a pomegranate martini Christmas Eve to settle our nerves.

Join me on a fun “A Merry Little Bar Cart” blog hop with my friends linked below. First stop, my house and bar cart!

During my spring dining room makeover one of the must haves was a bar cart, so this is the first Christmas I am getting to style it for the season! It’s such a great addition to the room.

Christmas Bar Cart

Adding a little Christmas cheer to your bar cart is easy! Honestly, I bought nothing new and pulled current accessories and lights right out of the attic. It took about 15 minutes to set up, so when I tell you it’s easy – it’s easy!

Elements of a Christmas bar cart:

  • Crystal Decanters
  • Crystal Glasses
  • Christmas Lights
  • Santa Figurine
  • Glass Trees
  • Hanging Wreath

The goal is sparkle! You want the items on the bar cart to reflect the light and most have a mirror and glass shelves to enhance the effect! I love my bar cart and chose to put the mirrored shelf on the bottom to block the floor and let the light shine through from the top.

Here is the bar cart in my dining room (right now it’s out of stock, so check back!).

If you don’t have a bar cart, here are a few ideas that are all under $200!

Bar Cart Sparkle

Adding crystal decanters to a bar cart is my favorite accessory because they reflect and bounce around the light. Over the years I’ve collected decanters and was given beautiful crystal tumblers as a wedding gift.

A bar cart is the perfect place to display those special treasures.

Here I’ve combined three of varying sized decanters, with fun silver name tags for each decanter. A couple of low ball crystal tumblers and it easy to pour yourself a cocktail!

Then see if you can find some beautiful glass Christmas trees to collect. This fall I started collecting glass pumpkins, so why not trees?

Just a couple fill out the space, add some color, and reflect more light. Then I added another tree between the bottles to pull the green through to the bottom shelf.

Light the Bar Cart

The truly fun part was digging through an OLD box to find lights I used to hang in my eves and have since stopped. Getting up and down on a ladder in winter was a lot easier when I was younger 🙂

Now I hang wreaths and garland on my porches and that is MUCH easier. Click the link for the full tutorial.

They are the prettiest snow flake lights that I draped on the back on pulled a couple to the front. I LOVE how they light up this corner and reflect light off of all of the pretty items on the cart.

Shop Lights

They add that perfect little touch and make Santa Claus sparkle!

This Santa Claus I purchased a few years ago at Hobby Lobby and linked some similar options for you to shop. You can NEVER have to to many Santa figurines around the house!

Christmas Wreath as Art

There is something about a Christmas wreath that I love. They are classic and with small fairy lights become something truly special.

Using some wide white grosgrain ribbon I hung a wreath centered on the artwork above the bar cart and LOVE how it looks. It instantly says Christmas time is here! Just add a battery powered set of fairy lights and you are set!

New Year’s Eve Bar Cart Transition

Since New Year’s is right on the heals of Christmas, I decided to get a beautiful bottle of champagne and display it. I recently found the best option to replace real ice cubes with reusable ice cubes instead!

No mess and use them over and over. Add a few fairy lights and you’ve got a special champagne set up chilling!
