Take a peek into any great host or hostess' home and you will always find one somewhere. In a living room corner, up against a wall in the dining room or a strategically placed tray tucked into a bookshelf or placed on a countertop.
I speak of the bar cart, a key piece for the host or hostess who wants to be prepared for anything.
As we all know, every once in awhile, the inevitable will happen. The phone will ring, the doorbell will ding-dong and you will find yourself with a surprise guest that you were not anticipating.
The consumate hostess would never fret over last minute entertaining! Her home will be neat and tidy (or at least easily disguised in a wink!), a stash of tasty edibles will be waiting to be popped in the oven and with one of these little babies, a fresh drink will be within reach to greet her guests.
