Bigandcarts bar ware by Stephanie Dhillon A well-stocked bar cart (or drinks trolley if you prefer) has everything you need for home entertaining and it also counts as decor. There’s a bar cart for everyone out there, here are a few to get you started. Add fresh flowers or a small statement plant like an aloe vera, some pretty glassware, fun/quirky decanters, and spirits that come in decorative bottles to create a stylish focal point. If space is an issue use a beautiful tray with a few edited bottles, a small bowl of citrus fruits and a decorative accessory.
