Essential Glassware For Your Home Bar Cart

Home bar carts are so in right now and we often get asked about the essential glassware for home bar carts. They are pretty, functional and add so much character and class to the room. Given that they're so popular these day, you can easily find the right bar cart to fit your personal style, budget and whatever else elements that inspire you.

Essential glassware for your home bar cart

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

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.
