Ok, so this was SUCH a fun post to set up.
Sometimes when I have an idea it never quite pans out the way it’s supposed to…AKA the pumpkin pie pancakes I attempted to create a week ago.
But this candy bar? I’m very much feeling it.
And I had to share because it’s SO EASY TO RECREATE IT’S STUPIDDDDD.
First things first, here’s an up close view of the top & bottom:
This project started out while I was roaming the aisles of Home Goods ( this happens a lot: ideas at Home Goods…anyone else? ). Basically I grabbed a bunch of vases/glass dishes, some candles ( blacks, whites, golds ), two black display stands, & a packet of black plastic, creepy-ass spiders.
I went home, emptied my bar cart, & set up for Halloween.
Make sure you have different heights going on when you set-up your own cart. One height is very vanilla, & you definitely want to sexy it up a bit.
To finish the bar cart up, simply light candles, add creepy crawlers in random places, & cue The Monster Mash. TA-DA. Fun for adults & kids!
For empty spots that need a little extra love, add fake candles.
( …truthfully I find fake candles highlllyyyy irritating ( they’re kind of half-assed ) but I used a couple because I didn’t want to have 32578923 candles around the candy ).
Ok before I go I have to tell you guys about ‘the black licorice fiasco.’ Last week, I was INTENTLY working. Totally in my zone— a little Brazilian Lounge on Spotify, a lot of e-mails, working on a post, & balancing my checkbook ( which IS NOT my strong suit ). So. I out of my peripheral I see BLACK X 10.
And there sits T.Boone Pickens…he had individually dragged half of the black licorice twists ( one by one, I might add ) across the floor from the lower bar cart area. There he sat, in his white plush bed, casually sucking on a long piece of licorice.
And naturally measly pieces of black licorice were stuck between each tooth. Let’s just say I immediately pulled out the ‘doggie toothbrush’ & a Swiffer.
Regardless…it still looks semi presentable, right? Some of the pictured licorice is definitely post-naughty Boone. He’s a wily little one. By the way, Pixy was sitting perfect in her teepee, clearly annoyed.
Anyway, I’m off to eat room service at 12:37 AM at night…late night, casual dinner of scrambled eggs & berries. Whoops.
Talk soon, Lauryn
+ P.S. if you’re looking for a gold bar cart, Target has the MOST BADASS one. It’s TO-DIE!
