I feel like the topic of bar carts and in home bars has just exploded all over blogs! The idea of elaborate cocktail parties and entertaining company is a little far fetched for a college lady like myself, but there are definitely times that I wish my beverage presentation was a little more than a solo cup, some stale ice and whatever liquor we didn’t drink the previous weekend. I crave more than that. I love pretty things. My solution: A Bar Tray. Not as complicated as a bar cart or actual bar, accessible, versatile, moveable, and the best one… AFFORDABLE.
Here are a few affordable options to start your bar tray:
This is the Raffia Trays from West Elm. I recommend the 18” x 28” for a great bar tray for only $59!
This is a standing tray option! The Rectangular Galvanized Metal Tray with Stand by the Skalny Basket Company on Amazon for $149.99.
This is the Large Lucite Serving Tray in Afghan Chevron by the Pencil Shaving Studio on Etsy! Gorgeous for only $105!
Here are a few tips for outfitting your bar tray for your next get together, or just in case company decides to stop by, or… just because!
