I was given a few bar carts to choose from, and there are tons more at the Chairish site (see their entire bar cart collection here). They were all nice, but I picked this mid-century brass beauty as my favourite.
The "essentials" in my mind include an ice bucket, a variety of serving trays for snacks, napkins, and assorted stemware/glassware for drinks. I also jumped at the chance to scour the Chairish site for some decorative pieces (art, lighting, etc.) Here's what I came up with:

6] Partly Cloudy Napkins (These are SO cool and only $38)
7] Gold Stripe Cocktail Set (I love how the gold stripes echo the lines of the cart!)
There's a whole lot of good stuff to see over at the Chairish site. Pop on over and have a look! And, Chairish, thanks for the good excuse to browse your fabulous site for hours on end; I had a blast (and my "I want that" list has somehow gotten twice as long)!
