Obviously, we're biased and prefer vintage bar carts since they come with a story and the craftsmanship is typically superior to the contemporary ones. But, of course, the new ones are just as great and you can add the story and more character to it by accessorizing it with vintage glassware. If this is your choice then here's the rundown on the vintage glassware you'll need for your home bar cart:
1. The perfect vintage crystal decanter
It all starts with the bottle you pour from so consider investing in a nice, crystal decanter. It might cost a bit more but it will last you for many years, not to mention the cut crystal will really make your bar cart pop. Here are some of our favorite decanters from our very own Vintage Barware Collection:
2. The perfect vintage crystal glasses
Be adventurous and bold with your drinking glasses. Don't be afraid of colored glassware or unique shapes and styles. Vintage glasses are the ones that will stand out the most and are guaranteed to be the envy of your guests.
3. The extras
Now that we got the decanters and glasses figured out, let's think about the little extras needed to complete the bar cart decor, like candy dishes for your mints and chocolates, or dessert cups for sherbet or ice cream, and small glasses for dessert wines and digestifs.
