If you follow my other blog, The Naptime Reviewer, you read all about how I’m loving the Drinkworks by Keurig cocktail maker right now. Not only does it create great cocktails in a pinch, but it also serves as the perfect “watering hole” gathering place at a holiday party. If you are looking for the perfect Christmas bar cart idea, I’ve got an easy one for you.
Christmas Bar Cart Ideas
I prefer to keep things simple on a bar cart, but also somewhat balanced. I like to add natural elements like wood textures, fresh fruit, and texture and color.
For this Christmas bar cart, I framed the area with a homemade dried orange garland + a wooden garland from McGee & Co. They wooden garland is actually a dark green color and was only $16.
Dried Orange Garland
I love the idea of using dried fruit for a garland. I originally saw the idea on Pinterest, of course, and found the perfect dried oranges at TJ Maxx. It actually came in a potpourri mix, so I had my kids pull out the oranges while I strung them on a strand of twine.
If you want to make your own candied oranges (like, to actually eat), I created a tutorial on The Naptime Reviewer.
Most of our dried oranges already had a hole in the middle where the orange started to separate, so I just strung twine through the dried orange, and tied a little knot in the twine between each slice. There really is no right or wrong way to make a dried orange garland, so feel free to start over if you aren’t happy with your creation.
