Friday Favorite {Bar Cart}

One thing I love the most about blogging is the friendships that I have made. I cherish those friendships so much. But another reason I love blogging is the inspiration from decorating to fashion.... when Lindsay mentioned that she had purchased a bar cart a "lightbulb" went off for me. I have been wanting to rearrange/remove a few pieces of furniture. I knew I wanted to remove the cabinet in the dining room because it was just too hard to get around the table. That was when I knew a bar cart would be perfect in the corner next to my china cabinet.

Today, I am sharing my new FAVORITE piece of furniture along with a few FAVORITE essentials.




I tried to use items I already owned to decorate it with. I think the only items I purchased were the Bar Smith mixers...you will see those below. 




the letter board {similar} had to be added to the cart. 
I love this saying....It is so true in my case. 
Stemless Wine Glasses are from Tj Maxx


The cutest gnome wine stoppers from The Little Green Bean






Ben's aunt gave me these funny cocktail napkins. 


On the bottom shelf.....


Ben's sales team gave him these bourbons over time. 
I thought the bottles were too beautiful not to display. 


I also have an old glass jug that I found at Cochran's Furniture when we went on our road trip
Here is a similar glass jug. 


I filled a glass vase that I had with wine corks. 


Wine glasses were a must. We received this glasses as a wedding gift.


I found these Bar Smith mixers at Publix. They were around $3.50 a bottle. I picked up 4 different flavors. Grenadine, Lime, Simple Syrup, and Old Fashion. They fit perfectly in the bottle holders on my cart. A regular size wine bottle would not fit in the holes. 
Not to mention, I thought the bottles were really cool looking. 
You can also find them on Amazon here 



I also added a few red, white, and blue "touches" for our 4th of July party we just hosted.

Funny cocktail napkins


I love my new bar cart and how it really opens up my dining room.
