Tips for Styling the Ultimate Holiday Bar Cart | Jackson Morgan Whiskey

Decorating for the holidays is definitely my favorite time of year. I love entertaining friends, and adding a festive touch to all of the details (check-out more entertaining posts here). Recently, I invited some friends over to kick off the holiday break and catch up! This gold bar cart always comes in handy, and if you don’t have one , I highly recommend adding one to your home. So many amazing options under $100. In today’s post, I’m going to share some tips to styling the ultimate holiday bar cart! Bonus: most things are already in your home.



First and foremost, cocktails. Duh! I’m all about simple, festive and delicious. I recently discovered the Jackson Morgan Peppermint Mocha Southern Cream and it’s seriously to die for! {ICYMI: I also shared a yummy salted caramel coffee recipe using only 2 ingredients!} I decided to make the Peppermint White Russian as the signature cocktail and it certainly doesn’t disappoint. Will keep you cozier than a crackling fire! I added cute jingle bell stirrers (found at Target for a steal!) and faux mini wreaths to dress up the bottle. Aren’t they darling?

RECIPE: 2 parts Jackson Morgan Peppermint Mocha, 1 part vodka, shake in a cocktail shaker, and pour over ice! It’s that easy! Find more recipes on Jackson Morgan’s website.


Is there anything better than garland? Always makes any space so festive and decorative! I just draped this faux garland around my cart, and it makes such a big difference. Another easy idea is to put a set of battery powered Christmas lights in a glass jar – lights up the space, and sets the mood. Lastly, I added some gold candle sticks to fill in the empty spots. Again, all of these items were things I already own. Drape some faux fur blankets on the floor for a cozy holiday mood. Place the bar cart near the tree for the ultimate backdrop. I just love having the fire on while drinks are flowing.


Letter boards are my obsession these days! I used one for Harlow’s monthly photos (check Instagram!) and they’re such a fun addition to decor. You can get really clever with the sayings, but I went with Jackson Morgan’s catchphrase for the holidays’ Sip and Be Social — love that! 


My go-to with styling bar carts is stacking books. I always find that books add such a chic touch. Again, another item you already have around the house and they always make the biggest difference!
