Cheers Witches! Halloween Home Bar Decor

Posted

Drink up witches! That's the theme we've been seeing across all Halloween decor this year, and admittedly, it's pretty darn awesome. Check out our take on a witchy bar complete with icy potions, witches brew and more!

The top of our bar hosts the glassware, clear ice, and signature drinks of the evening. The first is an adult slushie made of sugary chopped ice, and a liqueur mix of blue curacao, vanilla vodka and red food coloring. Next is a classic rum punch (recipe from Dale DeGroff and Liquor.com) only complete with frozen hand. And of course, some Cheers Witches cocktail napkins.

Pro tip: even if you're not a fan of candy corn, it brings a festive spirit to any table top!

Underneath are some mixers and an assortment of bar staples for guests to mix up their own libation. We've placed the bottles on top of some leather books, black boxes and baskets that would feel right at home in a witch's favorite spell casting den. Add a jack o'lantern and some purple bat lights for some extra spook!
