How to set up a home bar

Depending on your drinks of choice, the key to how to set up a home bar is organization. What supplies do you need to keep on your bar cart so you or your guests can make a cocktail or drink?

Once you have your favorite spirits and accessories ready to go, display them in a way that’s artful and appealing. Add splashes of color to your bar cart with flowers, books, colorful drink glasses or a bright tray. Hang a large, bold painting or framed image over your bar cart to set the stage.
