Happy Friday Beautiful’s!
Just a quick little post for Friday Bar cart Beautiful!
Today I wanted to share with you a fun little date night or even Boy’s Game night idea for your bar cart! Super easy & quick to throw together idea for a fun Night. Just a couple Items to throw this look together! If you’ve been following me you know I love to entertain and have been a collector of thing’s I think will make for good serving pieces or fun props that you can use over & over! Here’s some tips on what to look for to make your carts come together with easy….
I love the Word BAR I picked up at Homegoods and use a ton! Look for words you would use like EAT & Yum if you don’t drink! (Bar can be used for…. Candy BAR, Coco BAR, Cup cake BAR) You get the Idea! I love trays and consider this Coke Cola crate a tray (found mine on etsy) Collect fun Cups that can be used for multiple occasions. These lidded Mason jar glasses work great for picnic’s, Ice Tea, lemonade and perfect for game or movie night! I save cute bottle or cool soda cans and use as props. Glass jars are great to serve food and treats out of! Use things around your house…Like games, silk flowers, real plants, candles, books for risers Etc.
Collecting serving pieces & glass ware that can serve multiple occasions is smart… Don’t get to caught up in a theme you might not be able to get multiple looks out of it! Think Glass, White, solid colors or a pattern if you can use it for multiple seasons or holiday’s! ( I collect black and white stripes and polka dots) Which can be used for many occasions!
Hoping you are enjoying My Bar cart Beautiful Series!
Have a great weekend Beautiful’s! Ox, D’Arcy
It’s time for Friday Bar cart styling = Hot summer night’s Nautical theme & Watermelon Moscow mules….
I hope your having a wonderful Summer! It’s been a really HOT summer in Utah! All anyone wants to do is float in the water or do something indoors! So I hope your staying cool!
We live in a lake town in Utah and I am a California girl at heart! So the nautical themed bar cart for Summer just feels perfect! This would be cute by your pool or a cute Summer Birthday party theme.
I don’t know if you remember a couple months back, when I decorated the Junior Leagues annual Gala? It was ” A night at the Cape”…. Which had me collecting a ton of nautical decor! (I had to do something with it!) Another inspiration for our Summer Bar cart! I hope this inspires you to have fun with your Bar cart and decorate it for the seasons!
My Favorite Drink these day’s is my Watermelon Moscow Mule cocktail creation! Yum! You can make a Mocktail by leaving out the vodka..
A copper cup ( I think it’s a must)
Ginger beer (our fav is Fever Tree) 1 bottle makes 2 drinks
vodka (leave out if making Mocktail)
mint for garnish
3 slices of watermelon
Fill your copper mug with Ice, pour 2 shots of vodka in mug, squeeze in the lime add to side for garnish, use 1/2 of the ginger beer in each mug….set aside!
cut up 1 water melon slice into 2 for garnish and other 2 watermelon slice’s put in plastic bag and smash into juice…
add juice to both mugs you set aside & stir top off with club soda and finish garnishing with watermelon slice a sprig of mint! YUM…If you try it leave me a comment and tell me how you liked it!
Hope your enjoying your Summer loves! OX, D’Arcy
Hello Beautiful’s It’s Friday Yippee! If you’ve been reading my Blog for awhile, you know I love to entertain and any reason to throw a party! With that said I started Doing Friday’s post on Bar cart Beautiful. (I have been slaking lately on my blog! Sorry!) I have been posting a pic or two on instagram and I promise I am going to be more consistent here! Bar Carts don’t just have to be for cocktails or BAR drinks! They can be used for any type of serving and make a great statement piece for a party theme! ( I have even posted using 1 of mine for for a vanity or a fun desert cart!) Really the possibilities are endless! This is why I own over 3 carts….(Making a teethe gritting look!!)
Bar car beautiful this week was inspired by the First day of Summer! Yippee!! Summer Flamingos, Palms & pineapples, YES PLEASE! Styling a perfect bar cart is about balance but really it’s about picking a theme! Once you have picked a theme you keep it balanced by working in ODD numbers! Yes… Odd numbers not even! This is a interior design trick. Never work in even numbers, people think that’s the balance but truly it isn’t! Note: Top shelve has 11 items including palm mats and bottom has 5 items (pink flamingo stirs count as 1) So when your shopping or going through your house to collect items keep that in the back of your Mind!
I also let a cocktail be my inspiration! Say…Champagne float=Girl’s Night or bridal shower. Bubbly Coconut Rum=Vacation cart, Whisky and soda= Game night You get the picture….
Enjoy your weekend beautiful’s! Ox, D’Arcy

Cinco de Mayo bar cart styling!
I don’t know about you but this California girl loves Mexican food! By now you know I love styling my bar cart for parties and social hours! So having Cinco de Mayo on a Friday was pretty exciting to me! (I know doesn’t take a lot to get me excited for a party!)
I drew my Inspiration from this photo above while on a photo shoot a couple weeks ago! I loved the bright colors of the paper flags and knew I had to mimic for my Friday Cinco de Mayo bar cart! Bright colors Margaritas and chips & salsa….Well and Maybe a shot of tequila! Is whats on our cart for tonight! We’ll be serving nachos and a taco bar as well and I am so hungry I can’t wait!
Have you tried Skinny Girl mixers? Yummy, pour or Ice add a shot and a twist of lime! Super easy and great on the calories! YAY!

How to make an easy pomegranate cocktail for Cocktail Hour. Always a hit & perfect for the Holidays.
One of My Favorite Cocktails I created… A great signature cocktail I created years ago for one of our Holiday Parties, and It’s been a big hit ever since.
The Vanilla Pom
I get more calls and messages about this drink, “How do you make or what was that signature cocktail you severed ?” This yummy drink is easy to create, taste as you went to a lot of work and has so much flavor it will be a hit for you too! I love that it makes for a great pitcher drink as well. I have filled up a Large drink decanter to help make parties go even smoother. (just in case you don’t want to play bartender all night.)
It’s The Vanilla Pom super easy to make, and your guest will be calling you.😘
You’ll need…to make a pomegranate cocktail for Cocktail Hour:
Pom 100% pomegranate Juice
Vanilla Vodka (this is KEY) This is our Favorite’s HERE HERE HERE

And lime or pomegranate seeds for garnish.
2 parts Pom, 1 shot of Vodka (vanilla vodka is the key) ice & stir
