For The Host

First of all, if you’re hosting, you must have coffee available, regular and decaf, at any holiday gathering. There are always guests who like coffee (or tea), whether they are drinking adult beverages or not.

We love the idea of a “Coffee Bar”. (We hear they are all the rage at weddings these days!) Have at least 2 urns or carafes of coffee (Regular and Decaf; more options could include French Press, Espresso or flavored coffees). Then, stock the table with cups, spoons and a variety of stir-in options. Any or all of these are great complements to coffee:

Chocolate shavings Ice cream Nutmeg
Whipped Cream Flavored creamers Cinnamon
Tiny chocolates Flavored syrups Orange peel
Kahlua Frangelico Chambord
Whiskey Cognac Raw Unrefined sugar/Sugar cubes

If You’re a Guest, Try This

So many open houses, so little time. In the spirit of giving, it is always appropriate to bring something for the hostess. We recommend coffee – either beans or ground or just a special roast – as a gift that is always appreciated.
