We love any excuse to entertain and Christmas or New Year's Eve parties are the ideal opportunities to celebrate in style. First of all, when planning how to use your drinks trolley at Christmas, it’s important to embrace your individuality. Because your home is unique, your bar cart should be too! As a result, there are a few key essentials we’ve outlined below but the rest is up to you. So don’t be afraid to go all-out, the more personal and eccentric, the better.

A dedicated home bar needs a lot of space, which is why drinks trolleys are great for any home. Bar carts come in all shapes and sizes and are perfect whether you're renting or own your home. Maybe you’re looking to add one to your dining room or introduce one to your living space? Either way, these stylish serving carts are a great addition to your home. Designed for everyday evenings at home or seasonal soirees, our bar cart collection is curated to add style to any occasion.

As the basis of your home bar, your trolley can be styled with everything from booze to plants, glassware and quirky ornaments. Also, it happens to be the perfect spot to make up a Christmas cocktail (or five)! So, get ready to style up a storm with festive finishing touches and bar cart essentials that promise to get the party started.

First of all, no Christmas drinks trolley is complete without a collection of gorgeous glassware. Not just an essential for serving, glasses also look great when styling! Therefore, we recommend investing in a selection that will suit any Christmas cocktail. While coupes are always elegant, no bar cart can function without highball glasses and a tumbler or two.

Similarly, we love to add a few quirky touches to our glassware. From rose pink water glasses to ribbed martini glasses, your glassware should stand out! Now just to decide on the drinks to serve…

Furthermore, chances are you already have a few around the house that can be re-homed on top of your trolley! We often say it’s the little things that make a difference in your home and this is the perfect example.

While you can create a showstopping bar cart without any extras, these pieces are essential for creating depth and personality. Therefore, we recommend introducing a few of your favourite quirky ornaments alongside your collection of booze. From glamorous candle holders to unique art pieces, decorative ornaments and accessories add instant style to your scheme...
