Why are bar carts so great?
Bar carts are not only fabulous to hold alcohol or your bar essentials. Yes, you could set it up as a bar cart that holds glasses, bottles of alcohol and an ice bucket. But you could also use it as a caddy to hold additional plates or flatware.
If you are hosting a buffet type party, hold the plates, glasses and napkins on a bar cart while your table can be maximized as the serving station.
If you choose to serve alcohol you can make that an actual bar, where pre-mixed drinks are available for refills. Store your ice bucket and glasses plus straws for maximum conveniences.
Another handy use is the roll in your turkey, Create a festive platform by laying out a white table cloth on top, on the bottom shelve you can store your knife and fork to cut the bird.
At last, a less festive idea would be to use the bar cart as storage for dirty plates and glasses. Rather than putting the dirty plates on your kitchen counter where it doesn't necessary look great, you can put all dirty dishes on the cart and roll it aside to organize later into your dishwasher.
