A Christmas Cocoa Coffee Bar

Recently, I had some fun setting up a Christmas 
cocoa/coffee bar at the lakehouse!  

Christmas Cocoa Coffee Bar- Itsy Bits And Pieces


{This post is sponsored by Oriental Trading}

I had a great workbench in my studio space at home, and we are now using it as a serving bar in our dining room at the lake. I am sure it was meant originally to be used as a breakfast bar/center island kind of thing, but there are 
lots of ways to use a piece like this, and it works so perfectly here. 
Placemats, runners, napkins, serving trays etc. are all stored here.
We do have a coffeemaker in the kitchen, but keep a Keurig handy on the server, 
so it is a perfect place to have a coffee/cocoa bar!

I used some fun items from Oriental Trading's Buffalo Plaid line!
It's so great for winter, and for Christmas decorating, too!

The Buffalo Plaid Table Runner is a nice 70 inches long, and 
worked perfectly on top of the server.  I added lots of fun pieces on top of it!

My old red truck makes the perfect holder for Buffalo Plaid Insulated Coffee Cups...

They have such a great embossed cable knit pattern!

  12. A really fun kitchen spot, Linda! I love your rustic theme with the buffalo plaid and deer's head {I have a similar one I picked up at At Home this year, also with a wreath around it... great minds think alike! At least us decorators!!! Lol.} Happily pinning to many of my Pinterest boards. <3 Happy Christmas time to you and your family, Barb :)
