3 Tasty Ways to Decorate Your Coffee Cart
Everyone knows about the perks of having a stylish bar cart, but the beauty of a personal coffee station is that you can bring in unique “coffee shop only” tools to make every morning brew special. Just like bar carts, a portable coffee cart is great for entertaining — but it’s also a comforting way to start the day. Whether you show off your coffee and tea cart in the kitchen or only bring it out for fancy Sunday brunches, this week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you which stylish products to pick up to ensure your morning cuppa looks as great as it tastes. So brew yourself up an amaretto mocha and scroll down to see how we’d style a coffee cart for a boho-chic, minimalist and preppy home.
Keep the good vibes going with crystal candle holders and a neon sign that says, “Hey girl, you look like you could use a cozy hot beverage.” Set everything up on a leather and gold bar cart and pair a retro Smeg kettle with cool malachite mugs and a color-blocked sugar bowl. Finish off the look with gold spoons, drink stirrers and a wood tray to bring out your perfectly crafted drinks to your guests.

Keep some sugar spoons handy, as well as some mini serving plates for those days you pair your brew with pastries or coffee cake.

There’s nothing more satisfying than sipping your coffee out of an adorable mug, so make sure your cart is well-stocked with pretty options. Celebrate your inner coffee snob with handy accessories like a milk frother, measuring spoons and canisters for keeping all your beans neatly organized. Add a handled tray to carry drinks and keep a tea towel on hand to clean up any spills. Finish off the look with a marquee light that tells everyone where the caffeine’s at.
