I can’t believe Halloween is almost upon us. From the changing leaves, pumpkin spiced lattes, chunky cable knit sweaters to warm, cozy blankets and furry pillows. Warm drinks, hot toddy’s and fun Bar Cart decor all help welcome the Halloween Season.
There is no doubt Fall is officially here. While I do love holding onto summer, it’s time to start embracing the cooler temperatures. I love this time of year, normally filled with apple picking, hayrides, pumpkin patches, corn mazes and haunted house tours.

Halloween Decor and Thoughts of Fall
This year the extra activities are a little sparse but the decorating continues. Featuring my Living Room Halloween Bar Cart today. Yes I had to say Living room because quite possibly I also have one in the family room. I am a gal of excess. Why have one bar cart when you can have two. right? And you might want to check out the Living Room Potion Mantle, it pairs perfectly with the cart.
For me a bar cart is the perfect addition to any home or apartment because it can be decorated for each holiday and season. Plus, having a pretty space to elegantly display your special bottles liquor can help make you feel just a little more put together and most likely clear up some much needed counter space.
Bar Cart Ideas
I have noticed a new trend with bar carts with all the liquor bottles on the bottom. The idea was appealing but here is my crazy confession. I have a Bar in the basement so I don’t usually store a lot of bottles on the bar cart. Possibly I should change that.
Regardless normally I stock seasonal liquors on the carts and then add a lot of fun decor and specialty glasses. The Christmas Barcart had peppermint Kahlua and double chocolate vodka, season alcohol you may save for special occasions. How do you spiff up your bar cart(s).
Halloween Bar Cart
We’ve definitely got our money’s worth out of This Bar Cart I got from Zellers. Yes you read that right Zellers, and I actually used my points so it was a free to me cart. We pretty much roll it out for every chance we get and I love all the different special occasions where I get to style it! Lately I have left it set up in the living room and decorate it to suit the season.
For Halloween I thought it would be fun to spook it out and add some chic Halloween pieces to it! If you have a bar cart at home try giving adding some of these pieces to it in October. A basic cart only needs a few fun seasonal stemware pieces and some Halloween Cocktail napkins. For me, well I may go overboard, but I do have fun.
Target and Dollar Tree Finds for Halloween
If you recall this time last year I went to the Poconos for a long weekend. Well that meant a trip to Target and a stock up on Dollar items. Best thing about late October shopping all the Halloween treats are on sale. I stocked up and pulled them all out this year.
My Batty Wine Glasses were from Target, a fun edition and perfect for 2020. The champagne flutes from Dollar Tree add a touch of whimsy. Adding season straws in Orange and black help set the stage. And who can resist a “More Boos Please” cocktail napkin? Not I that is for sure.
adding to the fun were a bunch of stickers I found at Micheals. Turning my liquor bottles into ghostly spirits. The stickers were $6.00 Canadian and totally make the cart spooky.
Shop my Cart for Fun
Literally everything I got to decorate our bar cart was found in the Target dollar spot section, Michaels and Dollar Tree. How crazy is that?! It transformed the entire look of our bar cart and everything was so affordable. I tried to find as much of the decor online as I could to link for you, but definitely check your local Target to see what Halloween decor they have out right now!
Decorating the cart took a few minutes, and I love how it turned out. I hope this inspires you to add a little Halloween decor to your home!
