The bar cart has become the star of the show at indoor and outdoor parties this year. But what’s a chic bar cart without the perfect ice bucket? Our correspondent Meredith Lepore has curated a list of 11 of the most beautiful luxury ice buckets to fashionably style your bar cart or trolley for your next party.

12 of the most beautiful ice buckets you must put on your bar cart (or trolley)

We all know bar carts have become the ultimate accessory for the living room, the butler’s pantry, and, heck, they even work in a studio apartment. After all, they serve multiple purposes. One is functional. You need somewhere to put all your alcoholic beverages. But they are also decorative and can really bring a room together. A bar cart is a great way to show off your glassware, alcohol accoutrements and even a few other objects that may not really serve a purpose but bring a little color and whimsy to your cart. Even a lovely vase of flowers can be a nice touch.

But one accessory that is both super functional but can also be a great way to show off your style is the ice bucket. You need ice! Especially in the summer after a long sticky day at work when you just need to come home and have a delicious cocktail. But you don’t want to keep your ice in just a boring bucket or, even worse, the freezer! No, you need a beautiful focal point on your bar cart. And you are in luck as there are some stunning ice buckets available right now. If you had just been putting your ice in a boring white bowl for years you are really going to scold yourself. After you see these, fancy straws and stirrers won’t even matter.
