3 Ways to Decorate a Bar Cart for Fall

As we all know, there are so many places in our homes where we can add touches of fall.

Ever since I purchased a bar cart for my dining room, I have been thinking of new ways to style it.  Originally, I kept the styling very simple so it would blend in with my freshly painted dining room.  Now that the fall season is here, the bar car seems like the perfect spot to add some fall decor!  Just to alert you, these decorated bar cart ideas are more about the decorations and less about the “bar” so don’t expect a whole bunch of alcohol-inspired looks!

Here are 3 ideas to decorate a bar car for fall…

Bar cart styled with neutrals in a navy dining room

In my first bar cart example, I used neutrals colors which help prevent the decor from competing with a bold wall color.

A cozy candle helps keep this corner from being too dark.

A bundle of wheat, a white pumpkin and a basket of mums give a neutral/textured feel.

I actually used a couple of these pieces in a recent table setting in my kitchen.

In order to give the bottom shelf some height, a large mum and some more pumpkins work perfectly.

Since this back corner doesn’t get much light, I will have to be careful keeping these mums in this spot.  They actually need more light than this…says the woman who kills every plant…

In order to brighten things up, I moved the bar cart to the bay window for my second example…

For my second bar cart example, I enhanced the neutrals by adding blue and white accessories along with a touch of gold.

It always helps to repeat the colors and textures on both shelves to keep it looking cohesive.

With all the bright light in this spot, the glasses and mirrors really sparkle.

Actually, this look is a good transition from summer to fall (for those of us who have a hard time saying goodbye to summer!).

Last, but not least, I used traditional fall colors in my third bar cart example

The amber colored wine glasses work perfectly for fall… and it helps when you find a bottle of wine with an orange label!

To carry the colors to the shelf below, I just used a vibrant wreath from my storage.  In the past, I have used this wreath on my front door for fall.

      Ha! I know, I know…I thought it would be fun to just decorate it as a little table. I’ll tell you what, Ron…I will do another one with all the alcohol just for you! Cheers, my friend!

    All are very pretty, although I love the contrast between the white pumpkins and the blue. Visiting from Style Showcase.
