Halloween Bar Cart

With just a few days until Halloween, I’m sure you’re busy finalizing your party plans.  We all know Halloween isn’t just about the kids anymore, everyone wants to get in on the spooky fun.  With that in mind, today I wanted to share with you this idea for a Halloween themed Bar Cart.

The decor for this Halloween Bar was inspired by the adorable Bat Collection, that my friend Julia of

Streamers Party Supply, has in her Etsy shop! I absolutely love how she created the 3D effect with the gold foil paper!  Because this bar cart was going to be for adults, I wanted to keep the decor classy by using the luxe color scheme of black, white, and gold.

To get things started, I used my golden bar cart and added a few bottles of wine along with some stemless wine glasses, that I got from TossWare.  I added golden paper straws with bats attached for a little fun.

I carried the bat theme throughout the whole area.  I used bat garland along with diamond shaped garland to set up the background for my bar cart.  I then added in some golden and black balloons in different shapes to fill in the space. And since this was a Halloween theme, I didn’t want to go with florals, and instead used these spooky black twigs with black pom poms attached in an oversized vase.

To add a bit of whimsy, I used a black cat silhouette cut out hiding next to a pumpkin I had painted gold on a tall black candlestick holder.

I wanted to keep the snacks simple, so I served a vanilla cake and cupcakes, and used the bat themed toppers once again. I also served cheese puffs in a fun cauldron, to give our snacks a Halloween theme.
