Raising the Bar

With the holidays quickly approaching, we've all got parties and entertaining on our minds. Be festive AND stylish, and stock your bar on a vintage tea cart.

Old Plank Road is one of my favorite antique shops, and you can find this brass beauty on their website for $1,499.

A few years ago, I had a mild obsession with anything barley twist, like this beautiful oak antique on eBay ($389).

I know, this one from Mecox Gardens NYC is super expensive ($3,600), but it just too precious. And round. And lucite. And 1960s French. Love!

This steel and glass cart has such a masculine, monumental quality to it. $895 at Restoration Hardware. Also available in antiqued brass finish.

Ruby Lane never fails. Outfit your bar cart with this adorable set of 8 gold-trimmed glasses with etched atomic stars ($60!). I would buy it myself if I didn't have a crazy 3-year-old on the loose.

Made of copper & brass, this stunning German antique ice bucket serves more as art than function (it's small). $145 on eBay -- circa 1905.
