Spring is almost upon us, which means it’s time to focus on bright and colorful things that energize us and delight our senses.
In today’s post, I’m so excited to show you how to style a spring coffee bar inspired by the new Limited Edition Starbucks® Blonde Sunrise Blend ground coffee.
Whether you’re celebrating a spring holiday, hosting a shower, or simply inviting a friend over after the long winter hibernation, a coffee bar is a fun and tasty way to fill the occasion with color and conviviality.
How to Style a Spring Coffee Bar:
I’m going to walk you through four simple steps for creating a beautiful and flavorful Spring Coffee Bar. Let’s get to it!
1. Select a Delicious Coffee
First, I started with this gold bar cart.
Next step: coffee! Since this is a coffee bar, having high-quality, great-tasting coffee is a must. I don’t know about you, but I’m a huge fan of blonde roast coffee. It’s my morning go-to, and I usually get the blonde espresso in my lattes.
It’ll come as no surprise that I was extremely excited to see Limited Edition Starbucks® Blonde Sunrise Blend. With its bright, smooth, and subtly sweet taste, it’s ideal for spring! Since I prefer to make a full pot, I use the Ground Coffee, but the blend is also available in K-Cup® pods.
If you live in Pennsylvania like I do, you can buy the Limited Edition Starbucks®Blonde Sunrise Blend at your local Giant Eagle. Just look for the large cardboard display.
2. Provide Options to Customize
Although I typically take my coffee with just a splash of cream and a little sugar, I think it’s fun to provide lots of flavor options when setting up a coffee bar. Be sure to include basics such as cream, sugar, and sugar substitutes.
For my Spring Coffee Bar, I set out flavored syrups that I put in these cute little jars. I went for classic flavors: vanilla, caramel, and hazelnut. Depending on who you’re serving, you also may want to consider providing almond milk, honey, or agave.
3. Incorporate Sweet Treats
What’s a cup of coffee without a tasty treat or two? When I entertain, I often like to mix homemade items with store-bought ones to make things a little easier. For this particular coffee bar, I decided to make this scrumptious Cinnamon Walnut Bread.
To ensure there was a variety of tasty treats to choose from, I likewise offered wafer straws, chocolate covered espresso beans, stroopwafels, and espresso candies. These yummy things and many other bakery goodies can be purchased at Giant Eagle when you’re picking up your coffee. That’s what I did.
4. Add Seasonal Flair
Once you have all of the essential ingredients, it’s time to decorate. Since is spring, flowers are a must. I created a couple quick arrangements using tulips. I thought the bright pink coral color worked beautifully here.
Next, I brought in coordinating napkins and a few bunnies and eggs for a sweet. whimsical touch. You could use similar things or come up with pieces that fit your own theme, celebration, or holiday.
And with that, my Spring Coffee Bar is complete! Isn’t she lovely?
