Party on Wheels!

Life's short, so make every day sparkle!  Who says you need an occasion to throw a little party? Wednesday night meatloaf? TGIF? Sunday brunch with the neighbors? All fine reasons to celebrate...

Roll out an instant party! Chic, snappy-hued bar carts infuse any soiree with an unexpected element of fun, and they’re also functional around the house, serving double duty as a console or end table.

My favorites are from Society Social (shopsocietysocial.com). While you’re on the site, be sure to check out their magalog that’s full of whimsical goodies and inspiring entertaining ideas. Holiday cocktail parties are just around the corner, so wheel out your trusty bar cart, corral your coolest cocktail glasses and stir up something sparkly and yummy.
