Bar Cart Styling!!!

I was recently asked by a very loyal reader to do a bar cart post….I love styling bar carts.  I have one permanently set in my living room but I love setting one outside and also around the holidays.   I think the visual below from Swoonworthy is right on the mark for what you need.  I think the must haves are bar accessories (shakers, shot measures), fabulous glassware (I prefer vintage), an interesting ice bucket (or 2), stirrers, interesting bottles, and something quirky (like a cool plant or an asian statue, lucite letter of your last name, or decorative chocolates or candy).  In the next few weeks, I will be doing a post linking some of my favorite bar cart items.  In the meanwhile, here are some layouts for inspiration!!!  Bottoms Up!!!

Book Club Monday

This week’s book club Monday choice is The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides has become a New York Times Best Seller!  Here is the story:

The Silent Patient is a shocking psychological thriller of a woman’s act of violence against her husband―and of the therapist obsessed with uncovering her motive.
Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word.
Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London.
Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations―a search for the truth that threatens to consume him….
