Welcome friends! The holidays are swiftly approaching and that means lots of added duties for the hostess. We have birthdays, Thanksgiving that goes on for days. Christmas celebrations
I decided to put together a little nook that can offer self service treats and hot drinks . I have a gateleg dropleaf table that needed a purpose so it will be perfect. The most important appliances will be 2 coffee makers or an electric tea kettle, have one on order. But one for hot water and one for coffee.
I have set the table with teas, coffees, hotcocoas and packets of flavored instant oatmeal we had the same set up last year and the oatmeal was a hit along with the cocoa and candy canes of course. Lots of spoons, mugs, napkins, coffee filters, sugar and plenty of marshmallows.
This will free up time for all the other cooking etc. Plus I find the guests love getting whatever they want. Cream and half and half can be stocked daily. A cold carafe will be great for that. I am so looking forward to the upcoming celebrations and this drink bar can help free up some time. When I serve desert I can serve right from this table.
Thanks so much for dropping on in! Will you be putting together a drink bar?
