Hi friends! It’s Summertime – and that means plenty of outdoor entertaining! And you know what that means, trips to my favorite dining & entertaining destination Cost Plus World Market! Now I have been obsessed with drink and bar carts for a while now. I’ve been working on a little indoor project, but just in time for all your Summer BBQ & grilling parties, I thought it would be so fun to whip up a fun and festive bar cart for outdoor entertaining!
The key elements for a beautiful outdoor bar cart – variety, color and function! When it’s party time, you will likely have a number of guests with varying tastes. So it’s a good idea to stock your outdoor bar cart with a variety of beverages! I love hitting up World Market for an amazing selection of drinks. They have everything from Italian to nostalgic sodas. And for those with an adult taste, World Market is overflowing with an amazing selection of beer and wine! For our outdoor party, we whipped up a gorgeous and delicious Sangria Punch! Be sure to check out that easy recipe!
Next up for your outdoor bar cart – color! I spent time in the nostalgic soda section at World Market. Not only is it fun to check out their variety of flavors, the colors just POP! They make super fun additions to the cart and will be enjoyed by all.
To add in more color, World Market also has a vast selection of linens – I have a little collection of amazing cloth napkins that are not only practical, but oh so pretty!
Last up is function! Of course you have to start with an amazing cart. I am absolutely head over heels for this White Austin 3-Tier Metal Cart. It’s the perfect size to fit all your drinks and more! If you whip up some Sangria Punch or agua frescas for your party, you MUST snag one of these agua fresca barrels! Not only are they functional but I just LOVE the look!
So there you have it – variety, color and function – and you’re all set with one styling outdoor bar cart!

I could spot Hawaiian Sun juice from a MILE away!! Haha. My favorite is Pass-O-Guava though (the pink can). Used to love Luau Punch, Pineapple Orange and Lilikoi Passion as a kid as well. You can never go wrong with Passion Orange either. Pretty classic flavors of the islands. Anyway – nice to see Hawaiian Sun in the mainland!
When I was preschool age there used to be a The Pop Shoppe store in my area.we even had the red cart for the longest time. I thought they had gone totally out of business. Last year I saw a few bottles at Big Lots. I read to label and it was from Canada. Just seeing the bottle takes me back to a simpler time and place. I love the whole bar cart set up.
everything looks so yummy and pretty! great images!
