Peppermint Themed Coffee Bar

I went with a fun, red-and-white, peppermint theme for my coffee bar this year. Red and white are my faves, so this was totally a good fit. I grabbed lots of goodies for this space at Target. And I was inspired to use this theme with our new favorite at-home Starbucks® Peppermint Mocha Caffe Latte drinks (brewed in the Keurig), along with Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Milk Chocolate Truffles. 

I love having this space all decked out for the holidays. We do a bit of entertaining between family stuff and my husband's office peeps. Everyone seems to gravitate to this area of the kitchen after a meal...who doesn't want to finish off a fun evening with a delicious cup of coffee? Plus, I think this is a must-stop during  Santa's visit, too.

Check it all out below.



 These Starbucks® Peppermint Mocha Caffe Latte are really nifty!


They are a two-step process...first with pouring the packet into the mug.


The second step is with the K-Cup pod. 


And the Starbucks® Peppermint Mocha Caffe Latte pairs beautifully with these Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Milk Chocolate Truffles. Both the coffee and chocolates are easy to find at Target or click here to grab them online

Together, these are the perfect holiday treat...for anyone.
For my middle school son, I'm going to be gifting all of his teachers a mug with a packet of the Sweetened Dairy Blend as well as the Caffe Blend pod. I'll top off each mug with a chocolate. These are great for both gifts and treats at home in the coffee bar. 

There are some Target in-store specials right now for these, too:
From November 27 – December 31, buy 3 Starbucks products and save $6 (VIA: $4.30 each, Roast and Ground Coffee: $5.99 for 11 or 12oz, $9.99 for 20oz K-CUP, $9.99 for 9-and 16-count Starbucks and Tazo). And a Lindt offer from November 27 – December 24: 2 for $8. It's a great time to stock up for entertaining and holiday gift giving.

On my Peppermint Themed Coffee Bar, I've got my coffee within easy reach.


 I tucked my Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Milk Chocolate Truffles into the cute tree/truck cookie jar that I also found at Target. It's perfect for my coffee bar. Plus, not everyone knows this opens...mom's little stash, right?



I made the "warm up right here"  sign just for this spot. My little peppermint mugs are perfect here, too. They were a Starbucks find a few years ago that my husband and friend grabbed for me. I found a few more on my own to complete the set. 


The spoons are so fun! 


The Santa sign came from Target this year, too!  It helps Santa find his way to the good stuff on Christmas. I mean milk and cookies are one thing, but Starbucks® Peppermint Mocha Caffe Latte along with Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Milk Chocolate Truffles will really bump up our Santa status. 


I also have some festive red and white dish towels hanging right off of the coffee bar. 


My little plate stand was also from Target last year. 


Be sure to grab your Starbucks® Peppermint Mocha Caffe Latte pairs beautifully with these Lindt LINDOR Peppermint Cookie Milk Chocolate Truffles right here from Target.


Hoping your holidays are full of the good stuff...like coffee & chocolate!

  3. I love the theme and I bet your coffee tastes great! I love anything warm with peppermint in it. My daughter enjoys her cocoa with peppermint and I would like a nice coffee with a splash of mint. Thanks for the ideas so we can enjoy this together, in style!

  5. It looks so cute. I love the red and white. We aren't coffee people but could just do hot chocolate. I love this idea.
