Stocking the bar!

As we all know, WASPs love a well-stocked bar. JPK is no exception. Our small apartment-sized wine bar is his favorite piece of furniture. I always joke that he seems 80-years-old instead of mid-20s because he loves sipping scotch with a cigar in his flannel Brooks Brothers pajamas!

I've been searching for a Mad Men-esque gold bar cart for him, but I haven't found one yet. I want one very similar to the one in the picture above. Actually I'd like the whole room above! Monogrammed pillows, a framed family crest, a plaid couch, oh my my my!

So far, I've gotten him these Skull and Crossbones Double Old Fashioned glasses. They are so great, he will love them! I don't know if you can tell, but they say "Name Your Poison" at the bottom.
I also got him some plain crystal glasses and a set of stainless steel martini glasses. I'm planning to throw some bottles of scotch, whiskey, and gin to the mix when I can find a bar cart! Any ideas where I should look?

Also, we are getting married exactly 2 MONTHS from today!


  1. Love those skull and crossbones glasses! My bf is a big scotch drinker as well and I constantly joke he's aging us both by being into it. ;) My recent favorite site for vintage wares is etsy--many things are cheaper than ebay.

    Eeek--your wedding is so soon, how very exciting!

  2. Pier 1 might have some choices. Or maybe you could just scout some local flea markets - you never quite know what goodies might show up there!

    I can't wait for your wedding - I am living vicariously through you as it will likely be quite a while before I get to plan my own! :) And so the countdown begins!
