Now that the holidays are here, you might find yourself thinking of ways on how to make your Christmas feast merrier. You may have prepared for your main dinner already and your decors are all on point. Your kitchen and dining are now ready for your guests. However, since it’s the season to be jolly, an extra treat wouldn’t hurt. This year, try creating a cocoa and coffee bar for your Christmas party. It’s a nice addition to your feast as it serves your guests something sweet and comforting after a hearty meal.
We were inspired by our friend, Jeneen of Magikal Fairyland, who hosted a party we attended. Her setup was so wonderful and we thought, why not help our readers set this up as well? These are some of the reasons why you should add a cocoa and coffee bar to your Christmas feast:
It’s a perfect way to end your dinner.
Who doesn’t love a cup of coffee or a sweet mug of hot chocolate after dinner? Putting up a cocoa and coffee bar during your Christmas feast is a perfect way to end things sweetly. Nothing beats the happiness a great cup of hot beverage can bring, especially during the winter.
It’s all about the cute decorative pieces.
What we love about Jeneen’s set up is that everything seems so polished and well thought of. The decors are all so cute. The snowman jars are absolutely adorable! Setting this up in your home is a fun experience because you get to play and decorate with different Christmas decorative pieces.
It’s a great way to add happiness to the home.
You’ll be able to put a smile on your visitors’ faces when they see your cocoa and coffee bar. It will also an entertaining part of your home because your guests can concoct their very own hot chocolate and coffee based on their taste and preference.
Did we already mention it’s super cute?
Of course, we cannot get over at how cute Jeneen’s cocoa booth! From the decorative jars to the smallest and most intricate details of the bar, the entire set up just makes you want to grab a cup and create your own handcrafted beverage!
