Over the holidays, we hosted several parties, both small and large, and each time I set up bar areas for guests to help themselves. For the larger party, I split the drinks into several areas of the house, which helped to avoid traffic jams, and encourage more flow.
One corner of the kitchen housed my friend Jennifer's amazing non-alcoholic punch (seriously, it's insanely good!), a cooler on the porch was stocked with water and sodas, and the wine was split between the butler's pantry and a festive bar cart in the Living Room.
But of course everyone still congregated in the kitchen!
So what does this have to do with heavenly pairings like La Crema wine and Wisteria? I'll get to that, but first let's talk about styling one of my favorite pieces of accent furniture...the bar cart!
We typically stick with just wine and beer for parties, and you can never go wrong serving La Crema wine...it's definitely a family favorite (it's all my sister served at her gorgeous Mountain River Wedding)! I first added my fringe garland to give the cart a festive feel so guests knew it was for the party.
Sugarplum Tip: Stand alone bar set-ups also ensure guests only open and drink the stuff you want them to! #youknowwhatImsayin

Do you have a bar cart of some sort? Do you keep it stocked for parties, or use it for stylish vignettes? See more styling posts like this one here, and more of the Living Room here. Good luck, lovebugs!
