If you’ve been reading the blog for a while you know I love a SET UP. A themed table is so my vibe & this Halloween candy bar cart ticks all the boxes.
I’m very much feeling it.
This candy bar is so easy to recreate IT’S INSANE. Naturally we had to discuss on the blog.
A Halloween Candy Bar Cart
First off, Home Goods is always a nice place to start if you don’t have a plan or idea for your Halloween candy bar cart.
Oh, & sidenote: you don’t need a bar cart. A table set up works just as well.
Anyway, so much inspo can come from Home Goods around Halloween. Walk in, grab a bunch of shit, go home & set it all up. Fun !!
Before we get into some of my favorite decor items, let’s go over some tips you should keep in mind when setting up:
Tips For Styling a Halloween Candy Bar Cart:
♡ choose a wide variety of heights to keep things interesting.
♡ a color theme is always fun, but you do you – black, white & gold is always fun.
♡ candles are a must !! Personally I like real candles but if you have kids, they make amazing flameless ones these days to make sure things stay safe.
♡ speaking of kids, get them involved – let them decorate one layer of the bar cart.
♡ place items from biggest to smallest ( large candy dishes, big candle holder, then smaller dishes ). Lastly, sprinkle the tiny stuff ( toy spiders, sparkles, cobwebs ) last to fill in the gaps.
Ok, now let’s get right to it. Here are all my favorite items to add.
My Favorite Halloween Candy Bar Items:
♡ apple O’s ( so vintage LOL )
These days I tend to go for the healthier candy & chocolate options out there. But I still love an old school apple O! You do you, but I love to mix in super nostalgic candy with the lower sugar ones.
Now, let’s discuss decor:
& if you’re interested in getting a bar car, here are some cool ones I found.
There you have it! Some fun tips & tricks to style your very own Halloween candy bar cart or table scape. You could go classy, spooky, super scary or all out witchy magical potion vibes. Just so many options.
Ok before I go I have to tell you guys about ‘the black licorice fiasco.’ A few years ago I was INTENTLY working. Totally in my zone— a little Bossa nova on Spotify, a lot of emails, & working on a post. So, 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.
By the way, Pixy was sitting perfect in her bed, clearly annoyed. Miss her so much.
Anyway, what candy am I missing?
