3 Budget Friendly Ways to Update Your Bar Cart for Fall

Budget Friendly Fall Bar Cart 

One of my favorite things to do each season now is update my bar cart. Mind you, we rarely have guests + we don’t drink much, BUT it gives me another thing to have fun with decorating each season. 

Fall is by far my favorite season, so you probably wouldn’t be surprised if I told you that I had this cart re-decorated ASAP on September 1st.  Along with a redecorated bar cart, I had out my Fall candles + other decor up as well. There’s just something about coming home to a Fall-ey decorated home that gives my mood a big boost! Hope you enjoy the bar cart inspo and easy + budget friendly updates I made to mine!

Budget Friendly Ways to Update Your Fall Bar Cart

  • Add a bottle of bourbon + whiskey // These are two popular Fall-ey liquors that you can add to your bar cart to instantly give it a more Fall vibe. A bottle of red wine is also a must!
  • Pick up a cheap wicker basket + add some pumpkins and gourds (can easily be found at your grocery store or Target)
  • Hit up the Target $ spot // The Target $ spot is where I got my plastic pumpkins, napkins, “boo” sign, towel, stirring sticks, and wine glasses. I spent a total of $17 on these items! Crazy right?

In total I only spent $50 on updating my bar cart for Fall (including the alcohol!) If you skip the alcohol, you’ll be all in around $30. That’s crazy cheap right? Always, always, ALWAYS, check the Target $ spot when you go in. You never know what fun items you’ll find + you can almost always incorporate them into your home some how. Even if you don’t have a bar cart, these items I put on mine can easily be put as accents in other parts of your home. You really just have to be creative + think outside the box. When you’re a girl on a budget, you don’t have any other choice but to think outside the box. Stay tuned, babes, because your girl is already thinking about Christmas bar cart ideas! 😉

    I love target dollar spot so much, they have the cutest items!! I need to make a run to my local target and see what they have. I’ve been shopping at the dollar store and 99 cent store for my Halloween finds, completely forgot about the target dollar spot because of that!

      I wish we had a dollar store here in Chicago! That’s such a good spot especially when you’re doing DIY items!
