Make the most of your day for a beautiful tomorrow.
With Fall now in full swing, and winter just right around the corner we’re all going to be prepping our homes for colder weather, and personally, I’m loving the trend of coffee stations and hot cocoa bars. From displaying our favorite mug collections to arranging hot cocoa toppings, the options are endless for creating the perfect station to grab a steaming hot cup of coffee, tea or cocoa! My vision for a perfect coffee station is one that I can use very close to my laptop. I am a busy work-at-home mom so everything that I do, stems from taking my laptop around the house while working on other projects. I have to start my mornings after prayer,affirmations, and devotionals with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
When I have a flavorful cup of coffee, it brings so much joy into my life. I recently discovered this wonderful online interior design service to assist in developing my unique DIY coffee station.
Havenly is the best interior online design solution. Havenly interior design are vetted with professionals that are real people. I can pick my favorite designer, personalize my design, collaborate on ideas, visualize my room, chat with the pros, and chat with ease all with the click of a button from the comfort of my home. They really helped in making my design dreams become a true reality!
I prefer to have at least one great cup of coffee per day. Sometimes two if I have a great deal of work to finish by the end of the day. A stellar coffee station is good on your budget too, because you can invite friends on the weekend to a enjoy fresh cups of coffee at their leisure, without going to an expensive restaurant or coffee shop. I have the option of serving myself, or others with a variety of different coffees, teas, and hot cocoas for the children in the family.
To freshen it up, just add a wide selection of coffee and decorative mugs to really indulge in a festive coffee station and hot cocoa bar. I usually do a basic bar with different creamers to keep the selection lively during the season.
I also think it’s fun and keeps things simple when the weather really begins to get cold and “old man winter,” really shows his face! Nothing is more impressive than serving hot coffee hot!There’s just no way around the warm feeling that I get from having a freshly brewed cup of coffee early in the morning to provide that extra kick for the day.
How to set up my coffee station
1. Take inventory of my coffee supplies: Before I start it is crucial to take note of everything that I want to have in my coffee station.
I may have to make that last minute run to the grocery store if I do not have all of my special creamers, and sugars to make that perfect cup of coffee.
How I design, arrange, and install my coffee station depends on how much coffee that I plan on having that day, or I if I plan hosting others for a long weekend.
2. Look for inspiration from Pinterest and Instagram: I seem to seek the most inspiration from my two favorite social media platforms besides Facebook.
Pinterest boards, design blogs, and home magazines have the best examples of both professional and amateur coffee station designs. I love to see a work-at-home-mom to a seasoned interior designer display their skills on both Pinterest and Instagram.
I look at some of my favorite pictures, and take time to brainstorm ideas for my personality and home décor.
3. Decide where the station will go: Decide if I want I want my drink station to be located on my countertop, a small mobile table, coffee table, dinner tray.
I think that is very important to weigh all of my options for the drink station. As I mentioned earlier, I prefer having my coffee located very close to my laptop or office space.
4. Make a list of things that I plan to feature: This can include a variety of creamers, sugars, coffee mixes, any food items for the bar.
I think that you make room on the station for cookies, confectionaries, a bowl of freshly popped popcorn to keep things healthy if you are not a sweet type of person.
The choices are endless with crackers and cheese, chips, and anything that tickles your fancy! Girl, a fabulous coffee station is all that I need to make the season bright!
