How to Style a Halloween Bar Cart

2016-10-21-01.19.58-1.jpg.jpgThe pumpkins are carved, the candy is bought, and now its time to decorate for a Halloween. If your like me then you also believe that every holiday deserves a party, and of course Halloween is no different. So lets dust off that old bar cart, pull out your favourite decorations, and get ready for a spooky night of fun.

When it comes to styling one of these bad boys, it is  important not to over clutter, but by adding a few small details you can transform any old bar cart into a spooktacular feature piece.

First things first, add the booze (it is a bar cart after all). You don’t need the entire liquor cabinet on top, just a few main spirits you plan on breaking out for the night. You will also need some glasses to put your drinks in. Maybe your adding champagne on the cart, don’t forget your flutes to go with that bottle. If your mixing high balls, add a couple rocks glasses. Having martinis? Don’t forget the shaker.

Next you’ll want to add some mix. If your  going to have juice, perhaps pour it into a decanter or glass pitcher to keep the cart looking simple and elegant.  For Halloween go with a cranberry juice because of it’s blood red colour.  On the bottom of your cart you can also add a variety of mixes.

Lastly, add your spooky Halloween touches!  Checkout the Gold Skull Vase I made a couple weeks ago, it’s the perfect way to add a pop of colour, and of course a little bit of gold. Another easy DIY for your cart is to take a white frame, add a sheet of black paper, and write a halloween phrase in chalk.

To finish things off, I loosely wrapped black drapery around the cart and perched a blackbird amongst the pumpkins, both were dollar store scores. To fill in the extra space I added a few more pumpkins and topped things off with a bowl of candy…it is Halloween after all.
