Bar Cart Styling

About a year and a half ago, I picked up a little beat up bar cart at a flea market for $30 (you can read about it here) and since then, I have slowly been growing my collection of things to style it with. This Christmas, a few gifts from my wonderful family topped off the whole thing!
Is it sort of sad that it took me this long? Yes, absolutely, but it was well worth the wait. It's the perfect mix of old and new, sparkly and colorful. I also didn't think I would have room for this somewhat 'luxury' item in my tiny studio apartment but I can honestly say it fits here perfectly!

Of course, I'm personally a little bit liquored out after the holiday season (who's with me?), but come next party, this bar cart is ready to go!

SHOP THE CART:
Crystal Decanters, glasses and ice bucket: Vintage (found at antique and thrift stores)
Gold confetti decanter and champagne flutes: Chapters/Indigo
"Here's to alcohol- the rose colored glasses of life" martini shaker: Chapters/Indigo
Pink and white striped straws: Party Supplier 4U via Etsy
"I only drink champagne on two occasions" print: Amanda Catherine Designs via Etsy
Silver ice bucket, martini glasses and gold rimmed tumblers: Home Sense
Bols Ballerina Bottle: Vintage (read the story here!)

Cheers! xox

It does take forever to get a good bar started for sure. But it is well worth it. :) Happy New Year!

What an amazing bar cart find! I actually found my bar cart leaning again the dumpster when I was moving into my apartment!

Beautiful! I love gold bar carts. What flea markets would you recommend in the Toronto area? I love vintage finds but I don't have the best luck finding items that I love.

AAAHH I love it SO MUCH! I can't believe you found that gem at a flea market! What an amazing find. You styled it perfectly, I love the straws and all of the accessories. Dying for those confetti glasses and the decanter. A bar cart is the one thing I wish I could fit in my studio apt. that I haven't found the space for...I'll have to live vicariously through yours!
