Tis the season for outdoor celebrations with friends and family, and summer entertaining! If there’s one item I absolutely adore and so thankful I purchased, it’s definitely my bar cart. Bar carts are perfect for storing signature cocktails, wine, beer, appetizers, side dishes, desserts and more. Outdoor bar carts are essential for pool parties, graduations, weekend brunch, summer soirees, etc.

Bar carts are not only essential for entertaining, but they’re fun to decorate! I love adding a cute banner to the front of mine, and my favorite decor items as well. They’re perfect for a themed party or a holiday celebration. With graduation season upon us, bridal showers, Father’s Day, the 4th of July, weddings, etc. you can decorate your new bar cart with the theme of your choice. Amazon and Etsy are two of my favorite places to shop for banners! They’re super affordable, trendy and fun!

This trendy Mercury Row Cervinus wicker bar cart/serving cart is perfect for the back patio. The thing I love the most about this is the extra storage at the bottom. You can store your favorite dishes, glasses, board games, or even your dog’s toys in the drawer! PS: If you’re a dog owner you know where I’m coming from! My dog Fred loves his toys and especially loves flinging them on me when I’m sitting on the back porch. 😉

Fabulous All Weather Wicker Outdoor Bar Carts

Nothing says summer quite like gorgeous outdoor wicker furniture! It can be a struggle to find a place to store them during the cold winter months, but thankfully we have the scoop on all-weather wicker outdoor bar carts that you can keep outside all year long! Yes, since they’re “all-weather” they’re a bit pricier, but it’s much cheaper than having to replace any furniture that gets ruined in a rainstorm, or gets ruined in a crowded shed or garage in the winter!

This handwoven synthetic Abrego all-weather wicker bar cart is a must! It has two shelves for your guests favorite drinks and appetizers. I love that it has wheels so you can roll it to your destination in the backyard! PS: It’s currently $100 off. I should also mention I shared the matching outdoor sofa on the blog recently!

It has RealisTEAK™ shelves which give it that classic yet modern look. Another great thing about it is it won’t be ruined in the rain. I love that it has three tiers, so it’s perfect for relaxing with after work! If you’re working from home during the pandemic, you can actually use it for work! You can store your laptop on it, your smart devices, books, drinks, lunch and more.
