Today we asked Interior and Fashion Stylist Nina Draddy to tell us what her bar cart “must haves” are for entertaining! She also recently styled some carts which she was happy to share with us!!
As far as bar-cart Must Haves go:
-fresh flowers, even if just a bud vase or full bouquet
-a very fabulous unique bowl or two for lemons, limes, nuts
-gorgeous wine stoppers like AERIN’S new ones
-lit votives, matches in pretty boxes
-an unexpected decorative object like a sputnik or hunk of agate rock
-a cocktail recipe book
-a gorgeous framed photograph
-mix in some fantastic attractive bottles of premium/small batch, handcrafted artisanal liquors – check out the selection at Wine at Five (if you are in the Westchester, NY area) or you local liquor store, the bottles themselves are works of art with great looking labels that have artsy fonts, logos and colors.
Cooking is an art form. It takes time and practice to perfect your culinary skills…
Today’s Book Club choice is The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post: A Novel…
