We teamed up with Pottery Barn to share some our 6 tips for creating a charming Halloween bar for your home parties! This was a pretty exciting collaboration because we love Pottery Barn and have for so many years! We jumped at the opportunity to work with them! Also, you can find the recipe for these delicious Halloween cocktails on their charming blog, Inside & Out! Below are a few of my tips for creating a charming, yet spooky Halloween bar!
How To Make A Charming Halloween Bar – Step By Step
- Choose a theme or color scheme.
- Give guests a few different drink options.
- Have a flower arrangement on the bar.
- Have a few snacks for guests.
- Create a DIY drinks section for guests to use.
Choose Your Theme Or Color Scheme For Your Halloween Bar
Choose a theme or color scheme, then stick with and run with that! A theme allows you to have a cohesive plan for how your party will look. You can keep life simple, by choosing a couple of bold colors. For this, we loved all of the skeleton items from Pottery Barn, so we went with those and then did a black and dark berry color scheme. Love how it turned out!
Giving Your Guests A Few Different Halloween Cocktail Options.
We made a berry smash, blueberry martini, wine and a skull coffee shot! How cool are those skull shot glasses? Find ALL of the recipes for these yummy cocktails HERE or click on each cocktail photo to take you directly to the recipe!
Flower Arrangement For You Halloween Bar
Order or make an arrangement of flowers for the bar. There is nothing better than gorgeous florals on a bar! It’s an instant centerpiece! A flower arrangement really elevates things and adds a charming vibe to proceedings!
Have a few snacks placed out to nibble on. Keep it simple and mess free. A cheese plate, berries, almonds, charcuterie, chips, etc. Also, having some water nearby is a good thing too, ha!
Dry Ice At Your Halloween Bar
Use dry ice, but use it with caution. It looks gorgeous in Halloween drinks, but cannot be consumed. It needs to melt before anyone drinks it and never use your bare hands to handle it! If you don’t feel comfortable using it in drinks, then just place some in decanters for decoration to create a smoking bar.
Create A DIY Cocktail Section At Your Halloween Bar
Depending on the casualness of the party (for Halloween, it usually is), have spirits, mixers, cocktail shakers, jiggers, stir sticks and napkins out, so guests can make their own! Perfect if you want to mingle with your guests instead of mixing drinks!
Top Tips For Your Halloween Bar
- Keep your theme and color scheme simple, so it’s easier to tie in your decor.
- Make sure you have a good amount of ice on hand.
- Make sure you have prepped a good amount of garnish for your cocktails
- Use dry ice for added flair!
