My fall decorating continues with three ways to style a fall bar cart. I really wanted to include our bar cart in my Family Room Fall Home Tour, but decided to give it a post all of its own. That way I can share not one, but three different ways to arrange the top and bottom shelves.
Three Ways To Style A Fall Bar Cart
Bar carts are one of the most versatile pieces of furniture you can have in your home, because they are so multi functional. I have used mine as an end table, out doors on the patio, in the dining room and currently the family room.
We love using a cart for entertaining, which I hope will never go out of style. After all, it’s a handy spot for serving cocktails and displaying liquor or beverage bottles.
However, I also see the bar cart as an opportunity for seasonal decorating just waiting for inspiration. Today I’m sharing how to mix some everyday items with natural accents to create subtle fall displays.
You may notice I’m also featuring my wire pumpkin garland on my fall cart. To see how it looks on the mantel click on my post DIY Wire Pumpkin Garland.
Bar Cart Styling With A Liquor Collection
The first bar cart hosts a vintage zinc drawer with a Scotch collection and glasses on the side. This is a nice setup for fall when we enjoy having a dram on chilly evenings.
I’ve used this zinc drawer for so many seasonal displays, and in this case I love the masculinity it adds to the cart.
On the lower shelf I’m using books, a healthy green plant and large dried gourds. Using a large plant helps to fill the space vertically.
The raffia pumpkin looks pretty cute on the cart too. I’m using a vintage cream colored flower pot with bits of dried moss inside to hold the pumpkin in place.
By the way, you may notice I use antlers quite often in decorating. I think they are beautiful, and look like a piece of sculpture.
Bar Cart With Faux Terra Cotta Pumpkins
On the second bar cart arrangement I’m still using the zinc drawer, but I’m moving it to the lower shelf. The tall bottles help fill the space, and again the zinc drawer adds that masculine element.
This bar cart styling is the most simple out of the three, because the faux terra cotta pumpkins take up so much space. Plus plants and terra cotta go together like pumpkin spice and fall.

Bar Cart Styling With Foraged Clippings
Bar cart number three is currently my favorite, because I love the foraged oak branches. It can’t get much easier than this, and the leaves are naturally pretty all on their own.
On the bottom shelf I have a variety of books, a vintage lantern and a bundle of dried wheat with a velvet ribbon tie. I love mixing all these textures together including the mini moss pumpkin inside the lantern.
