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, World Market has the MOST BADASS one. It’s TO-DIE!

    This is a wonderful idea. Halloween isn’t such a big deal over here, but I love it! It’s my favourite time of year. I do have a tray full of sweets just in case I get Trick or Treaters, but people don’t really do it here, and I’ll probably eat all the sweets myself while watching Tim Burton films – It’s Halloween, it’s allowed, right? I am worried that the temptation of a cart full would be a little too much, as it clearly was for your dog! 😉

    Love this! I just did a post on Halloween Chic and now I kinda feel like featuring some of your great pictures and ideas. I am so in the market for a gorgeous bar cart but my man isn’t really into the idea. What is it with boys and home decoration? We are on a total different wave length sometimes. Thanks for these great ideas Lauryn! 🙂 xoxo
