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.

Also, if you’re anything like me, you probably realize the day of the event there’s something you wish you would have thought of ahead of time.  It never fails: there’s always something you need at the last sec, whether it’s a new oven mitt or a serving platter.  Here are some items that are pretty to look at and helpful for serving guests.  And best of all – they are budget friendly!.

contemporary ceramics by Keith Brymer Jones

While perusing One Kings Lane, this tableware caught my eye!   White and simple.  Traditional and modern at the same time.  I’m all over it.

 Keith Brymer Jones is a British ceramic designer.   His designs have graced many great US stores and boutiques, such as Barney’s NY and Habitat.  I love that his line is a work of art yet also practical:  all of the porcelain items can go in the microwave and dishwasher.
