Suns out, funs out! It is officially the start of summer which means it’s time to get those bar carts out for summer entertaining. Whether you are entertaining for a bridal shower or just a summer evening with your nearest and dearest, I wanted to fill you in on some summer entertaining tips. Get ready to use it all summer long with these summer entertaining tips!

ONE
When styling a bar cart you need to load it with the essentials. Get personalized napkins for your guests, fun cocktail stir sticks and of course a pretty shaker!

TWO
Add florals that go with your color scheme, cocktail books and pretty glassware to style it up! Add a cutting board and cups with various fresh garnishes and cocktail fruits. Add a custom cocktail sign with your signature cocktail of choice.

THREE
Give your guests options. Not all people will like your signature cocktail, so have different liquors, mixers and a variety of wines. Think rosé all day in the summer!

FOUR
Give it a theme. Summer entertaining is more fun with a creative theme. Whether it’s pretty in pink or a holiday like the 4th of July, center your styling choices around your theme.
