Gathering with friends and family during the holiday season is something I look forward to every year. My fondest memories from when I was younger was gathering around my parent’s dining room table with a cup of coffee and a card game with my grandparents. There is something about that never-ending pot of coffee and that time spent playing games that always brings a smile to my face.
I want to incorporate those feelings when we have family or friends over during the holiday season, so I put together a cute little coffee tray that will sit next to our coffee maker! It has just what we need to make some holiday memories without making a big fuss.
Here’s what you need:
- A cute tray! I chose something that I knew would fit on my kitchen counter without it looking cluttered.
- Coffee mugs, of course! This makes it easy for guests to help themselves to a cup of coffee without feeling like they are going to have to ransack your cupboards to find a mug.
- Starbucks® Holiday Blend 60ct K-Cup® pods. This is one of my favorite seasonal flavors of coffee, and I love that I can buy in bulk at Sam’s Club. Enjoy 50 bonus stars with purchase of any one qualifying Starbucks® packaged coffee or K-Cup® pods at Sam’s Club through 11/1/17-12/26/17.
- A sweet treat! I love Lindt Chocolate Assorted Lindor Truffles. Sam’s Club has a 19 oz bag that is perfect for hosting. I put a dish of them in the coffee tray with a cute holiday decor sprig. They bring out the hint of maple in the Starbucks® Holiday Blend coffee! Who can resist coffee AND chocolate?
Coffee is a great way to bring your family or friends together, and I already envision plenty of cups being made in our home this holiday season. I keep this tray fully stocked for the duration of the winter, making it an easy way to entertain, even at the last minute.
Another way to lessen the fuss this holiday season is to invite someone over just for coffee and dessert! Skip the big meal prep and have some quality time with a friend or family member that you haven’t connected with lately. My favorite way to spend time with friends is to have them over, sweatpants required, brew a cup of coffee, and spend time investing in that relationship.
Sam’s Club makes it easy to be prepared for guests- make sure you check out Starbucks® packaged coffee or K-Cup® pods there.
