how to set up an outdoor bar cart

Hello!

Today I have a fun project for you that is super easy, and super fun.

HOW TO SET UP AN OUTDOOR BAR CART

Think outside the box!

 You don't technically need a "bar cart" to have a fun bar setup. I used a console table, but any sort of flat surface would do.

I got everything for our bar cart with Walmart. I love shopping Walmart home because it is one stop shopping for everything. Candles, plants, food, home decor, outdoor accessories and furniture, you name it.

Candle light is always a good idea. Get battery powered all weather candles that have a timer on them. That way you can set them to come on at dusk and stay on for 6-8 hours. The perfect mood lighting.

I placed mine in these great lanterns which can easily be moved all around the deck and other outdoor areas. 



Add in greenery, faux or real. I love the textured terra cotta pot on this one and the plant itself looks very realistic!



A citronella candle is a must to keep your guests from getting bit by mosquitos.

I love how this black one in the pail adds a casual feel while still tying in with my neutral color scheme.



Serve a signature drink, and make sure there is non alcoholic choices as well.  Click here to get my Bloom Gin & Tonic recipe.

Optional-set out snacks to graze on. It doesn't need to be anything fancy.



This is the easiest bar setup I have ever done, yet I think it makes a big impact to the otherwise empty space on our deck.
