We’re happy to announce an exclusive partnership with 100 Layer Cake—a beautiful destination for wedding inspiration.

Every month, they’ll show us the creative ways they celebrate life’s special occasions with their favorite Crate and Barrel registry items.

If you stopped by 100 Layer Cake this morning, you might’ve already seen how we added a little bohemian flair to the stunning piece that is the Hobbs Bar Cart. We dig that look, but what we love even more is the fact that you can switch it up throughout the year, depending on your entertaining needs. For our second of two ways, we chose a more classic style (a perfect fit for the cucumber melon tonic we’re sharing below) for all you modern design lovers…

So, why exactly is a bar cart so near and dear to us? For those who entertain (you saw our casual dinner party ideas, right?), the cart is a nice space to anchor some of the mingling, which is especially nice for intimate gatherings with a few close friends. Even with no one around, it makes a date night in feel extra special too.

All bar carts require a few bright blooms, in our opinions—a sweet element to switch up seasonally.

Going off of this stainless steel ice bucket, we added a few other stainless steel pieces from the Easton collection. Specifics below!

The Hatch Decanter adds a little contrast to the whole thing.

Isn’t it nice to be able to put all those Gift Registry goodies on display anyway? Even the barware can double as décor, making it wayyy easier to adorn a (perhaps brand new) space, that’s as lovely as it is functional.

A cocktail seemed like a pretty good excuse for showing off the Pryce Rocks Glasses. We created a tonic with cucumber melon gin we made by infusing four cups gin, 1 peeled + chopped cucumber, and 1 peeled + chopped Snow Leopard Honeydew. To make it, combine ingredients, store overnight, and strain before dividing and topping with tonic water.
