Halloween Bar Cart

It’s time to get spooky!

I had so much fun putting together our Fall Front Door Scape so while still very much in the holiday spirit and since Halloween will be here in no time, I wanted to share a great idea for a Halloween inspired bar cart.

Bar carts are such a great addition to any hosting event. Not only are they pretty, they’re practical for both large and small spaces and can be moved easily to any room.

For me, bar cart design is all about balance and layering; tall vs. short, big vs. small, and where to add in little pops of detail. Walking you through my process in today’s post with some of my favorite tips and tricks for designing the perfect Halloween bar cart!

Our Inspiration 

We really wanted our Halloween bar cart to be filled with different fun elements of the holiday and not just drinks. Which of course means, it has to include candy.

We decided that the best way to make our vision come alive would be with a variety of treats and some fun and spooky décor accessories. We stuck with a traditional black, white, and orange color palette to create the look we wanted.


We kept it simple with just three types of liquor. We found THIS great skull decanter and found bottles that blended in perfectly with the décor.

We used THESE glasses and added blackberries to THESE skull cocktail picks for each glass.


Halloween is all about the treats! We made Graveyard Dirt Cups and Spooky Spiderweb Cupcakes. We also added some gummy eyeballs and traditional trick or treating candy and chocolate.  

We used THESE risers to display the Graveyard Dirt Cups and found THESE fun shovel spoons to eat them with. The cake stand I used for the Spooky Spiderweb Cupcakes is no longer available, but I linked a similar one HERE and THESE black bowls were the perfect size for the gummy eyeballs. We also found THIS fun bowl for the candy and chocolate, it talks and opens it’s eyes when you approach.

Decorations & Details 

We had so much fun finding spooky décor for this bar cart. We added bats, spiders, haunted houses, some mini skeletons and a skeleton hand. We also found this great, spooky tree with mini pumpkins and a small sign.

THESE plates and napkins finished everything off perfectly.

This bar cart is perfectly festive with just the right amount of spooky treats!

What do you think about the overall look? We are so excited with how it turned out and would love to hear your thoughts! Everything we used is linked in the Shop The Post section below. Plus, be sure to keep an eye out for our next Holiday bar carts. We’ll be sharing a Thanksgiving Dessert Cart in November and a Christmas Hot Chocolate Cart in December.
