Raise your hand if you’re all about that bar cart revival. We hope it never, ever goes away! If it did, we wouldn’t have such a perfect little space to gather with guests over all those colorful cocktails we whipped up last month. Plus, if you added any of that essential Crate and Barrel barware to your Gift Registry (or just wanted to update your collection), you’ll definitely want it all displayed.

To give all you budding cocktail connoisseurs a little inspo in the bar cart department, we styled the Hobbs Bar Cart two ways, the first of which as all about a romantic bohemian vibe. For the lovers of a good looking cocktail! This particular cart has a sleek, modern look with two trays and an X frame, so it’s super versatile for dressing depending on the occasion. If you find you and your spouse like to switch up interior styles every now and then or even seasonally, all it requires is the swapping of a few accents.

As you can see, the little details making up the scene are *almost* as important as your selection of liquor. The Merritt Medium Taper Holders were just two of the non-barware items that we knew would bring it all together. (More listed below!)

Psst, the Orb Ice Bucket looks pretty unassuming in the product listing, but it makes for quite the statement piece here. Don’t underestimate simplicity of its design!

You don’t think we’d style a bar cart with out sharing a recipe, didja?

Pineapple Punch
7 tsp Pineapple
1 tbsp Chambord
1/8 cup Pineapple juice
2 tsp Vanilla syrup

Shake and strain onto rocks glass with cubed ice. Cut pineapple lengthwise in half. Use half to make wedges for garnishing. Add a raspberry and pineapple leaf garnish.
