Reindeer Recipes Blog Hop–Holiday Cocktail Bar Cart

The holiday cheer is in full swing today at ConfettiStyle.  I’ve joined 8 of my blogger friends for a fun & festive Reindeer Recipes blog tour hosted by Heather from Totally Tailgates.   If you’re coming over from Positively Southern, welcome?  I’m glad you’re here with me today.

Reindeer Recipes Blog Hop

While most of the bloggers on today’s blog hop are sharing one of their favorite holiday recipes, I put a little spin on things and I’m sharing my holiday bar cart. Plus I’ve got a few tips to help you style your bar cart for the season.

Every season I change the decor on my mini bar.  During the holiday season I love to dress it up with a few festive touches.

Creating a holiday cocktail bar is all about pretty glassware, fun cocktail accessories and cheery Christmas decor.

One of the decorative pieces I love using on my bar cart is a small decorative tray.  An acrylic tray is ideal because it’s clear and keeps the look light and airy.

tip:  It’s also fun to  add a decorative paper liner to your tray for an easy holiday update. I’ll share more about my tray next week.

If you have a small bar cart like mine, use petite glasses instead of regular size wine or martini glasses.  I love these and these.

tip:  use glittered washi tape to dress up plain glassware for a holiday party

Stemless goblets and cordial glasses which are perfect for serving up a signature cocktail like a Cranberry Blueberry Cosmo.  In my book cocktails can be served in any style of glass so don’t let you glassware limit your cocktail offering.

Every holiday bar cart needs fun cocktail swizzle sticks.  I’ll be sharing how easy it is to DIY these cocktail stirs next week on the blog.

Cocktail napkins are another bar cart essential and since my Christmas decor is all about color this year, a stack of colorful napkins adds a pop of color to my cart.
