How to Make a Coffee Bar at Home More Festive for the Holidays
An at-home coffee bar can go one of two ways. Some people have permanent carts or nooks set up with their coffee machines, tea kettles and all of their favorite accoutrements. Others might set up a coffee, tea or cocoa station for special occasions. This time of year is perfect for either type since people can always use a warm beverage to make them feel like they're right at home.
For the holidays, set out themed bowls or cups and fill them with cookies, crushed candies, colored sprinkles, flavored whipped cream or any other toppings or treats that would pair well with hot drinks. Set them out along the bar so guests can have a more interactive coffee, cocoa or tea moment.
To cool things down, keep a few seasonal ice cream flavors on-hand (pumpkin, eggnog, candy cane, etc.) so guests can add them to coffee and create delicious after dinner treats.
Instead of relying on the bottles they usually come in, get a few glass drizzle bottles and put flavored syrups in them. They can be labeled with personalized stickers or have small signs by them. If customers plan to serve a variety of hot drinks, it might be good to stick with flavors that will work well with anything.
Turn the coffee bar into a seasonal tablescape. For Christmas, put fake snow or Poly-fil around the area and place ornaments and a holiday sign on the table if you have room. If you're working with a small space, try fake snow, some twinkling lights and maybe a few candy canes or ornaments. For Thanksgiving, you can try some fake or thoroughly cleaned real leaves and place small decorative gourds around the coffee bar. Just get creative and make the area visually appealing. Guests will certainly be impressed.
