Nice balloons for your serving cart
If you are organizing a fun Halloween party, can’t miss the bar cart. Obviously, not just any, but one decorated specifically for this spooky holiday. You can use large balloons, maybe white, black or orange, with black or orange tulle. You have to buy big helium balloons, wrap them with the tulle, trim the excess of fabric then make a tie at the base. Hang the balloon to your serving cart, and they will keep straight up.
Then, you have to think about making the drinks for your bar cart creepy. To decorate your liquor bottles, you can print retro labels or spooky characters, such as skeletons, witches, cats or spiders, on sticker paper. Moreover, you can also decide to give a twist to your drinks by giving them some creepy names to print along with zombies, witches or other figures. Of course, you have to choose cool but spooky fonts by relying on graphic design platforms. For this purpose, you can find a large variety of graphics, SVGs and fonts on Creative Fabrica, where you can pick the ones which best suit your project.
