After years of entertaining, I quickly realized that most good parties revolve around any area involving the food and drinks!

So naturally, when I began to brainstorm new Halloween decor ideas, all of my very best ideas included a Halloween bar cart.

I had to take it upon myself to combine the boos (get it? Halloween?!) with another one of my favorites, flowers!

Thus, a beautiful thing was born. This spooky DIY floral bar cart for Halloween.

To be fair, I’m well aware that when one thinks of flowers, the word “spooky” doesn’t exactly jump into their mind..

But, alas we found a way to incorporate some pretty blooms into our Halloween decor.

Here at Sugar & Cloth, we like to keep it minimal when it comes to Halloween decor. And that means plenty of gold, cocktails, and candles.

Materials Needed To Make A Spooky DIY Floral Halloween Bar Cart

Flowers of your choice — We chose the following foliage: Silver Dollar Eucalyptus, White Spray Roses, Italian Cuscus (as our green filler), Banksia (our orange focal flowers), Safari Sunset Leucadendron (the pop of blood red), Pittosporum (another green filler flower) and Atropurpurea Black Knights (which are prefect Halloween flowers).

Wire cutters

Cloth covered floral spool wire — So you don’t scratch your pretty bar cart.

Small water tubes — Optional to make your flowers really last.

How To Make A Spooky DIY Floral Halloween Bar Cart

1 — Start by attaching the greenery that you want to be the biggest bulk of the decor to your bar cart. You’ll be arranging your flowers around them.

2 — Wrap the cloth floral wire around the ends of the greenery while overlapping just a bit.

3 — Use additional wire to secure the greenery to the corner of the bar cart. We used our studio bar cart that we already had on hand.

You can attach several pieces with the floral wire to make one long swooping garland along the left side.

I even got a bit of a wild for a creepy vine-like look. I pinned a few pieces to the wall to cascade down around the space.

How To Keep Your Flowers Fresh Longer On A DIY Bar Cart

4 — Insert floral tubes filled with water in the bigger flowers. This is optional. But since we built our DIY Halloween bar cart in advance, we needed them to stay super fresh and hydrated.

5  — Once the base of the greenery is secured, attach the biggest Banksia (which can have floral tube on) as a focal point flower. If you’re not using Banksias, then select your biggest flowers for the focal point.

6 — Use the big blooms to cover up any exposed floral wiring for a seamless look. 

7 — To make the floral bar cart look nice and full, add dark florals here and there. The dark florals also give it the right amount of spooky.

We really lucked out in the floral market when we saw this huge Orange Banksia! I don’t think we could have scored a more perfect Halloween flower, especially with those jagged leaves…

Also, can we just talk about that hilarious decanter is?! It would also look great on our sophisticated Halloween table decor setting!

And in case you’re looking for some Halloween costume ideas or fancy champagne jello shots to go along with your Halloween table decor setting, here are a few ideas for you —

  1. This is gorgeous! Halloween is my least favourite holiday, but I adore decorating and changing things every so often that I end up wanting to do something halloween-y but pass because, ugh, and just keep up the fall decor longer. This is the perfect solution.
