I just love having guests over during the holidays. It fills my heart with joy to take care of the ones I love! And one of my favorite ways to pamper my guests is to set up a tasty coffee and sweets bar. This girl drinks java all day long, so I would certainly appreciate having some available whenever the whim struck and I figured my guests will feel the same way! Wouldn't you love to be able to dip into the kitchen for a little something without bugging your hostess? I know you would...
So, I've set up a fun little bar that any of my holiday visitors can help themselves to. And it couldn't have been any easier to put together...I lined up festive placements in lieu of a runner and added some decorative accents like, cute coffee mugs, glittery trees, a nutcracker and a chalkboard sign. It's all in the details lovelies...And while it took nearly no time at all to throw this setup together, it certainly evokes a magical holiday feel.
This year I'm breaking in a brand new coffee maker. I can already tell that the Ninja Coffee Bar is going to get a LOT of use this season. This powerhouse machine does it all...I can whip up everything from a large carafe of Joe, to a single cup and even an iced concoction. I daresay my guests are going to love it as much as I do! And where there is coffee...there are sweets. At least that's the way the cookie crumbles in my house. Haha!
Even if I don't have time to bake up a storm, tasty store bought treats look just as pretty when presented right. For this coffee bar, I served up Blondie Bars and Sparkling Chocolate Cookies from Matthews.1812.House (use discount code MOMTRENDS for 15% off site-wide through 12/31/15), along with mini candy canes (which I like to let melt in my coffee...no joke) and Primzie Dolce Caramel Thick Cut Crisbreads. You could also add a little area with creamers, sugar and whatnot...The sky's the limit. Happy holidays!
