Fall Coffee Bar
My tiered Fall hot coffee bar is a testament to two things, my love affair with both tiered trays and traditional fall colors!
Creating Fall Feels
Normally by mid October we should be seeing some of those traditional fall colors in the great outdoors as trees begin to fade into the beautiful colors God created for us.
We like to recreate the Fall feeling that happens as September fades into October. There is a crisp feeling in the air as we begin to see the leaves change into majestic bright shades of red, yellow and orange.
Out come the pumpkin decor and fall decorating in our homes. I turn on my wax melt warmer filled with Pumpkin fragrance. Then I create a Fall Coffee Bar which will usher us right into the holiday season transition.
Three Tiered Tray
I have been on the hunt for a galvanized three tiered tray. When I saw this one it was love at first sight! You can find one almost exactly the same right here.
As I began to dress her up for fall I knew she wanted to be pretty but functional too. The bottom tray is both functional and pretty.
Set The Mood for Fall Decorating
Do you have one of those fabulous wax melting pots for home fragrances? Mine are all from Scentsy and my favorite fragrance ever is anything with a Pumpkin smell. Here is one I found on Amazon.
Create a mood for fall decorating by burning your fall fragrance candle or wax melts and pour yourself a cup of coffee or cocoa. Take your time and enjoy the moment as your create those Fall feels in your home.
Setting Up The Coffee Bar
One of my favorite fall beverages is instant cappuccino which you can find on Amazon right here. I always scoop some into a small Mason jar for easy access. I attached a wooden spoon to the Mason jar for easy serving.
Chai Tea and I like this brand is always popular
K cups in a choice of flavors if you are using a Keurig like this single serve version
Sweeteners like Truvia
Don’t forget the Mugs, Napkins and Spoons.
Antique Mahogany Buffet
I can’t share our hot beverage bar without telling you our story about the furniture hosting it. Many of you recall that we recently moved into a new home so we’ve begun the process of adding some furnishings to fill empty spaces. Find our Moving Tips here.
Our antique mahogany buffet is the first piece of furniture we purchased for our new home. This spot in the kitchen dining area was too empty and our new kitchen doesn’t have as many drawers as we wish.
Shopping antique malls is addictive and super fun. The day we found this piece, we decided to take a chance by passing it up to spend some time thinking about it. Three weeks later we went back and it was still there! Clearly it was meant to be.
The doors have a see through wire front which we thought was unique. Inside there are mirrors behind each shelf.
We use this space to display our vintage mixing bowls and vintage coffee makers. We can attest to how great coffee is when brewed on the stove in that glass coffee pot. It’s smooth, hot and delicious! We treat ourselves to stove top brewed coffee on weekends in the winter.
The bowl with cherries on the sides was my Mom’s for as many years as I can remember. She always set the table for Sunday dinners when we were growing up and most of the time this bowl held some sort of vegetables an on holidays her Potato Salad and here’s that recipe.
The little vintage electric coffee maker goes on vacation with us. I paid a couple bucks for it at a yard sale many years ago.
Our antique buffet has a secret! The top drawer creates a desk area! Don’t you just love that! We do. This piece of furniture was a fun find for us. It is the perfect spot for our fall hot beverage bar.
A fall coffee bar simply must possess a vintage thermos. My Dad used to use one exactly like this for work in the winter. Mom would brew a big pot of coffee every morning and fill his thermos. Then of course she brewed another pot for herself!
Fall Decor Vignette
This end of the buffet is decorated with a Fall vignette using a couple of DIY Fall Decor pieces paired with a cute metal wagon filled with pumpkins.
The Fall Napkin Dollar Store Pumpkin Makeover project is right here with a step by step tutorial.
The matching Luminary Jar project is right here. It’s an upcylce project with almost no expense involved using craft supplies.
The top two tiers of our fall hot beverage bar are filled with pumpkins, mini hay bales, pine cones and Indian corn which create those warm and cozy fall feels. That little bag of pecan vanilla caramel coffee will never make it to the weekend!
Wishing you a warm and cozy Fall! What’s your favorite fall hot beverage?
