Did you catch our blue and white fall brunch party on The Sip yesterday? When you find an item that is reliable, dependable, and is capable of multi-tasking to fit your needs, cling tightly to that thing and never let it go. This is precisely how I feel about my trusty outdoor bar cart. From the first signs of spring until the last leaves fall, this is my go-to for all outdoor events. Even in colder seasons, it serves its purpose inside as a beverage cart or dessert bar. If you enjoy hosting, I highly recommend finding yourself a versatile bar cart. 

For this outdoor fall brunch, guests could help themselves to apple cider punch from our festive pumpkin punch bowl. Recipe coming soon for a boozy Jackson Morgan apple cider float. Cocktails are especially fun when poured into and enjoyed from these matching pumpkin glasses. Partygoers conveniently picked up custom Lettermade cocktail napkins from my favorite Nora Fleming napkin holder.

To coordinate the bar cart with the table decor, I created a smaller floral arrangement in a For Pete’s Sake blue chinoiserie pitcher and placed a few extra ceramic pumpkins along the surface and lower level of the cart. Not only does the tried and true bar cart serve a specific function, but it also contributes to the festive visual aspect of the gathering.
