1. Coffee Cups
Pick a matching set, mismatched Christmas mugs and/or to-go cups. I always like to have a cute set of to-go cups with lids for the people that can’t stay. Set the mugs out in rows on the counter or buffet, display them on a tiered round display stand or neatly store them in an above cabinet.
2. Coffee Additions
Set out all the additions to add to your cup of coffee. I include honey, coconut sugar, cinnamon, white sugar and cream. Store all the goodies, except for the cream, of course, in a basket then pull them out at coffee time. Provide hot chocolate for those who don’t do coffee or want to do a mixture. Homemade hot chocolate mix is delightful but hot chocolate k-cups make things really convenient. My favorite is to heat some cream for 25 seconds in the microwave, froth with a hand held milk frother, pour over coffee or hot chocolate and top with honey, cinnamon and coconut sugar. You could also include a variety of seasonal flavored creamers, chocolate syrup and whipped cream.
3. Easy to Access
Having everything accessible will make your guests feel right at home. Making everything visibly clear not only helps your guests be able to find what they need but it also helps you to answer less questions. Everyone can relax and enjoy each other.
4. Freshen up…
Make sure to freshen up the space. Wipe down the Kuerig or coffee pot, all your storage jars or containers and the cabinet and/or counter where everything is stored.
5. Add a touch of Christmas
Last, but most important, don’t forget the Christmas cheer. Add as much or as little as you want. A little goes a long way. A small Christmas tree, Christmas napkins, battery powered lights, a couple of Christmas ball ornaments or a Christmas candle.
