Am I the only one who gets super excited when the holiday flavors of coffee creamer hit the stores? I’m sure not! I love my Peppermint Mochas from the coffeehouse, but I also especially love getting the Peppermint Mocha Creamer from Coffee Mate out of my own refrigerator! The flavors of peppermint and chocolate put me in the Christmas spirit, and they make entertaining guests extra easy and fun! We drink coffee a lot in our house, and often serve it to guests while we are entertaining. When we are putting up our tree, making cookies, or relaxing after a day gift wrapping, my husband and I are often enjoying a hot drink. Today I am going to share with you the essentials we have to stock our home coffee bar for the holidays~to enjoy for ourselves and to serve to our guests! These Five Festive Holiday Coffee Bar Ideas will keep you prepared for unexpected guests and keep your family in the holiday mood during all the decorating and wrapping!
Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer from CoffeeMate. This is an absolute MUST for our holiday flavors in our house. I use it in coffee, desserts, glazes, etc. I love how versatile it is and it the most flavorful of all the holiday creamer options. And, it’s so easy to find~I usually pick it up at Walmart when I am out on errands. The crisp peppermint and chocolatey mocha flavors are so comforting and festive!
Sprinkles, melting chocolate, or cocoa powder. Part of the fun of having a coffee bar is the fun additives! We like to add some whip cream to our mocha, and then sprinkle it with cocoa powder, chocolate sprinkles, or fun holiday themed candies. Sometimes, I add some melting chocolate discs to my coffee for a smooth, chocolate flavor!
Taster’s Choice Instant Coffee House Blend. Taster’s Choice, which is easily found at Walmart in the coffee aisle, is the long time favorite instant coffee in our house. I like to use the House Blend, with its smooth and mild roast flavors. Since you obviously need coffee for a coffee bar, you’ll want something easy to serve. I like this type of coffee because I can control how much to mix into the hot water~I don’t like mine as strong as my husband does. And, it’s easy to pull out and serve to guests along with my Peppermint Mocha Coffee Creamer.
Fun holiday cups. We always have our favorite coffee cups. I have a few Christmas themed cups that I keep in the cabinet until Christmas rolls around. I always look forward to using these, and they make it extra festive!
Keep it contained. To keep all our coffee items contained, I like to use a simple white square plate. It looks cute on the counter, and is easy to take to the table if we have guests. I can put the Peppermint Mocha Creamer, a few cups, and some coffee additives on it. It keeps our coffee essentials organized and still looks cute on the counter.
How do you stock your coffee bar? And, are you ready for those holiday guests? Be sure to add some Coffeemate Peppermint Mocha Creamer and Taster’s Choice House Blend to your shopping list this holiday!
