Cookies & Coffee Holiday Party Ideas

Whether you need an idea for a holiday gift exchange or your book club, consider a cookies and coffee holiday party. It's a breeze to put together, and you can experiment with new colors and themes. While I do love the traditional colors of the holiday season, it's nice to switch it up with cooler tones.

With a little help from Big Dot of Happiness, my party theme was created. The Be Merry set featured snowflakes, blue and white accents, and a lot of options for customization. With all the party decor shipped in one box, it was easy to set up and work around this theme. You can even add extras like a candy buffet to match! With options like favor boxes and centerpieces, it's easy to set up a holiday party table with no fuss. And, since everything matches, you can throw a Pinterest-worthy soiree with minimal work. That's my kind of event! The holidays are already busy enough so I can totally understand the feeling of overwhelm when it comes to playing party host.

Luckily, Big Dot of Happiness helped my vision come to life with the Be Merry table decoration set. I loved the centerpieces that helped tie everything together. The vibrant blue color was just what I was looking for with this Frozen-inspired event.

I used the table scatter to surround centerpieces of mason jars and baby's breath. Any sort of white flower will do for this party theme, but I just love the simplicity of a bouquet of baby's breath.

Silverstone bakeware added amazing and functional pieces to this party. What I loved about Silverstone was how practical these colored dishes were. I could bake on them yes, but I could use them as party platters.

I have a kitchen that is overrun with bakeware and dishes to display food at a party, so it was refreshing to find something that I could use to do both. I am definitely stocking up on their cookware!

Another way to infuse color at your party is with specialty dishware like Rachael Ray. The vibrant hue of this chip and dip plate paired with a creamy cheese dip turned typical cheese and crackers into something more flavorful. Try a corn cheese dip, a hot corn dip, or a queso blanco dip for extra spice.

The handpainted ikat design dishware helped set a table that was picture perfect. While you may not picture this pattern to be holiday themed, it is something that can work your decor year-round. There are also holiday patterns to choose from if you like to swap out your dishes seasonally.

A cookies and coffee party wouldn't be complete without a menu of sweet treats and warm drinks. Prepare tea in this aqua tea kettle by Circulon or make coffee with an authentic French press.

Add flavor and sugar to your coffee with candy canes! Let them melt into your coffee and enjoy the combination. I prefer mint candy canes with my coffee, but the fruit flavors have their place in a drink that's fit for happy hour.

Serve white rum with a lemon-lime soda for a fizzy drink. Add a fruity candy cane for extra flavor. My favorites to try are blueberry and tutti-fruitti (pictured below).

It's an easy and inexpensive way to add a mixer to a cocktail, and everyone can customize their own drink. Look for seasonal sodas this time of year including cranberry for an extra punch of holiday flavor.

WÜSTHOF knives are a classic tradition in the kitchen, and the paring knife is a must have for slicing and dicing. I use it all the time when prepping appetizers or cooking dinner.

Frozen isn't just for kids. These made a cute dessert and are fun for all ages. It was a good way to close out the party. This snowflake fest made our holiday gift exchange a bit more cheery. I can envision this theme pairing well with your book club, girls night, or family White Elephant party.
