The holiday season is right around the corner! That’s why I have put together a DIY Holiday Coffee Bar complete with a couple of handmade project ideas. This beautiful bar is set with Starbucks® Holiday Blend coffee and Lindt Chocolate Assorted Lindor Truffles and will be sure to impress any holiday guest.
I headed to Sam’s Club to stock up on supplies for my holiday entertaining. I grabbed Starbucks® Holiday Blend 60ct K-Cup® pods and Lindt Chocolate Assorted Lindor Truffle Bag- 19 oz. When it comes to holiday hosting, you can never have enough coffee or chocolate!
Enjoy 50 BONUS STARS with purchase of any one qualifying Starbucks® packaged coffee or K-Cup® pods at Sam’s Club through 11/1/17-12/26/17.
The Lindt Lindor Truffles are my favorite chocolates! I have been getting them as gifts for every special occasion for years. They just happen to make a perfect pairing with Starbucks® Holiday Blend Coffee. This coffee is an annual holiday tradition featuring a smooth and spicy flavor. The secret to this blend is the rare, aged Sumatran beans, which add a depth and mellowness to fine Latin American and Asia/Pacific coffees. Such a decadent and yummy combination will make any holiday gathering feel extra special.
To enhance my coffee bar arrangement, I created a “Coffee & Chocolate” sign as well as a couple of diy apothecary-style jars.
I purchased a pre-made blank wooden sign and cream, black, and dark red acrylic paint from my local craft store. I painted the background of the sign with the cream acrylic craft paint.
Next I printed out the words “Coffee & Chocolate”. I am including printable versions of my templates at the end of my tutorials. I cut the words out and arranged them on the sign.
To transfer them I used an old-school method of covering the back of the paper with graphite and then pressing firmly over the front of the words with a pencil. When the paper is lifted away, the words will remain.
Paint over the words with the paint using a small detail brush.
I love apothecary-style jars. I created my own using cheap glass jars and candlesticks. I also purchased two little glass drawer knobs to use on top of the lids. They make gorgeous candy jars for holiday entertaining and look even better when filled with Lindt LINDOR truffles.
Start with a glass candlestick.
Coat the top with a glass appropriate glue.
Place a glass jar on top and leave to dry for 24 hrs.
To assemble the lid for each jar, I punched a hole through the top in the center using a screwdriver. A drill could be used for this purpose as well. Then I stuck the drawer pull through the hole and tightened the included nut.
Add the lids to the jars.
Once all the pieces and parts are ready, the coffee bar can be arranged. I included some double-walled tumblers for the coffee and a few other fun little additions. I sprinkled some red jingle bells around to add some more festive color.
It’s easy to create a gorgeous and inviting coffee bar around Starbucks® Holiday Blend coffee and Lindt Chocolate Assorted Lindor Truffles!
