When we redecorated our conservatory, we were left with an awkward space where we needed a piece of furniture but I wasn’t too sure what…fast forward to an impulse purchase at IKEA and this white and silver drinks trolley came home with us!
I love the idea of having a little drinks cart to allow any guests to just help themselves to a drink meaning you don’t have to be rushing around and waiting on people all night. By having your spirits on display I think it also eradicates the chances of those weird bottles we all end up buying on holiday…watermelon schnapps anyone?!
Here is the trolley in all its glory. Whilst it does have wheels, I can’t see myself ever using them and this is very much a stationary piece of furniture!
As you can see, there are three shelves with a very handy sliding tray hidden underneath the top shelf.
Ian’s parents very kindly bought us this huge Kilner jar which proved to be perfect for serving Pimms when we had people over last summer. It is quite large but pretty enough to be on display all year round and is another great way to allow people to just help themselves…I’m sounding like such a lazy hostess!
I decided to use the bottom shelf for our large bottles of spirits, the middle shelf for small bottles and cute glasses and the top for more glasses, straws, stirrers and our cocktail shaker.
Getting this trolley sorted and looking pretty has inspired me to start looking for some new cocktails recipes…any recommendations?! x
