Drinks anyone?

I thought summer was over, but we’re having amazing weather for September, slightly cooler in the mornings, but our days are lovely and warm.

I don’t want to jinx it but we’ve had humid days and lots of sunshine with a slight breeze which is ideal for spending time on the beach.  Great weather means I still get to cycle along the beach front in t-shirt and shorts and so before the temperatures start dropping I want to show you pics of the bar cart that I found for the dining room project. 

Bar carts/drinks trolleys have been gaining popularity in recent years and there are some beautiful ones to be found on line.  Remember this post I did a few years back tea or drinks trolley Some are hugely expensive and others less so….this little number was £10 and I found it on eBay! It’s not quite up there with the uber glam models but it will do and does the job nicely until a more expensive one can be purchased.

I love how you can put everything to do with mixing drinks, slicing lemons and popping in a straw, all onto one small trolley. They provide just enough space for keeping all the paraphernalia together with the added bonus of being able to take it outside for a BBQ.  Plus they add a super glamorous look to any space.

I bought the vintage striped gold tumblers from Etsy and the wine glasses  with the gold coral motif from Zara Home.  

I dressed it up to fit in with the rest of the room, a slightly tropical sparkly feel…love it! Drinks anyone?

















I've been promising you pics of the little dining room project for weeks now, so that's up next, promise!

Take care

  1. I used to have one just like that (I mean my parents did) when I was a kid. Everybody had one in the 60's. Love you montage, great cups from Etsy. I do need to figure that out. Cheers!
