The coffee bar is a unique twist on a simple buffet, that is perfect for a winter wedding. Guests are offered a range of different coffees and desserts to enjoy. Popular items to include are:
? Different types of coffee (espresso, lattes, roasts, cappuccino, etc.) and flavors
? Unique toppings or mix-ins such as whipped cream, cinnamon sticks, chocolate sprinkles, assorted flavor shots, chocolate dipped spoons, crushed peppermint
? Cool iced coffees for summer events
? Coffee-compatible desserts such as biscotti, mini donuts, muffins, scones, cookies, cake, croissants or tiramisu for more gourmet desserts
In addition to different types or flavors of coffee, it’s a good idea to include other beverages, since not all guests will enjoy coffee. Hot tea, hot cider and cocoa are the most popular choices.
Wedding coffee bar ideas are a nice touch to tide guests over between the ceremony and reception and are also suitable for a brunch reception or as part of the wedding dessert bar or reception.
There are many ways to be creative or coordinate your wedding to a coffee theme. Some ideas include:
? Coffee brown wedding accessories, bridesmaid dresses and decorations
? There are many coffee theme wedding favors such as heart-shaped scoops, coffee scented candles, mugs, placecard holders, personalized bags of coffee or goodie bags
? Add coffee beans (instead of vase gems) to wedding centerpieces and add a white or pink pillar candle in the center
? You can even include mocha flavoring in the wedding cake
? A small jazz or swing band will give your affair an authentic coffee-house feel to suit your theme.
These are just a few ideas to make a delicious coffee bar a part of your special day.
