I have been on the look out for a pretty serving cart to use in our kitchen and dining area. With limited space I didn’t want a permanent fixture but something I could move easily when we entertain. Sometimes you have to get creative with small kitchen serving area solutions. With the layout of our kitchen we have a small area to use for serving and when I spied this Colebrook outdoor serving cart from Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart I knew it would be perfect for the space. Our back patio is off our kitchen and when the weather warms up this will be perfect to wheel out when we entertain. Not only does it look great, but the wheels make it super easy to maneuver.
Today I am sharing a fun way we like to utilize this space for practical entertaining. This past week I put together a special Popcorn Bar for movie night for the kids. During these cold winter nights we spend a lot of time at home and sometimes we have to get creative. By adding some air popped some popcorn placed in a large round white porcelain bowl on top of a few acacia wood chargers with some fun toppings we had ourselves a party. I used a variety of square porcelain bowls and my favorite acacia wood jars to hold different toppings to add to the popcorn like marshmallows, swedish fish, cashews, chocolate chips, chocolate pretzels, and m&m’s.
I found a variety of popcorn seasonings which I added into these glass salt and pepper shakers and added cute chalkboard style labels I cut out with my Silhouette. For the caramel and chocolate drizzle, I removed the label and applied chalkboard paint so I could write on the bottles for some added cuteness.
I found this pretty galvanized utensil caddy that I use to hold the popcorn bags, napkins, and straws for easy access.
We keep the drinks on the bottom of the cart. I use this tray to keep the bottles in place so they don’t tip over when the cart is being moved around.
To add a little “pizzaz” to our movie night, I added these glass edison string lights over our chalkboard. I can’t wait to add these all over my back porch this summer.
This little cart is already adding some great storage and space to our kitchen not to mention it can be used both in and out of doors. The kids have already requested an ice cream sundae bar next.
