A Memorial Day Bar Cart

Memorial Day weekend is the big kickoff to summer. It is a time when family and friends gather once again on terraces and in green lush lawns to celebrate. Toast to sweet liberty with an ice cream bar.
Gather every topping treat you can find and arrange it stylishly on your bar cart.Guests can make sundaes, floats or concoct adult milkshakes. Try to find standard fare in red, white or blue packaging.
Make your bar cart feel chic is to take time to make sure all the details match, which means taking simple items and unwrapping them. For example, decant treats like gummy bears into cute little sundae bowls.Wrap (or find wrapped) ice cream cones in cute coordinated papers.Use old fashioned and gourmet sodas and put them in a beverage caddy, like this red and white striped one. 
Use stylish plastic wine glasses for sundaes and floats. Paper bowls work great too, get them in fun colors and make sure to snag the oversized ones, for all those toppings! Get thick acrylic flatware in a bold color.
Add both fun print paper napkins and coordinating linens, for big and small messes. The idea is to make it feel casual and help your guests relax, your goal is effortless, not thrown together. 

Memorial Day is about the whole family, and this cart has treats for both the young and old. But don't forget to pop bottle of bubbly on the cart. For a cool treat, take your popsicle and add it to a tall glass. Pour prosecco on top and get the best of both worlds!
