3 fabulous bar carts + last minute entertaining essentials (that won’t break the bank!)

I cannot believe that this weekend is already Labor Day! Where has the time went?? Many peeps (including myself) will be having people over to celebrate the end of the summer.  And of course with company comes lots of food and drink.  And with that comes all the prep and presentation.  What’s a girl to do?  

One item that is great for entertaining is a bar cart.   These 3 are good-looking AND functional.
