Step 2: Stocking the Drinks-Pour the orange juice into a large, easy-to-pour pitcher. If you have multiple juices, arrange them in similar pitchers to create a cohesive look. Stock a few bottles or cans of sparkling water. Consider flavored sparkling water for an extra twist.

Step 3: Preparing the Garnishes-Slice the oranges into wedges and arrange them in a bowl. Hull and slice the strawberries. Display them in a colorful dish. Cut the limes into wedges or rounds and place them in a small bowl. Rinse and place the blueberries in a glass or bowl. Rinse and pat dry the mint leaves. Arrange them in a bowl for easy access.

Step 4: Adding Decorations-Flowers: Use your mason jars and glasses as vases. Fill them with water and add a mix of colorful flowers. Place them strategically around the cart to create a vibrant and inviting atmosphere. Fruit Napkins: Fold the fruit-themed napkins and stack them neatly or place them in a small basket. Ice Bucket: Fill an ice bucket with ice and keep it within easy reach to chill the drinks.

Step 5: Assembling the Cart-Top Shelf: Arrange the pitchers of juice, bottles of sparkling water, cups, and the ice bucket. Next add the small bowls of garnishes, ensuring they are easy to reach and visually appealing. Bottom Shelf: Store extra cups, napkins, juice, and any additional decorations or supplies.
