With a Portland wedding on New Years Eve, we knew we needed coffee all night & preferably a few other warm drinks as well. This fact paired with inspiration from a Starbucks coffee sleeve I had saved from one of our first dates (creepy?), spawned the idea behind a “warming bar.” Coffee, Hot Cocoa & Cider would all be available as guests arrived & through out the night.
Continuing with our “Love” theme (Philly’s Robert Indiana style), I purchased this stamp from Etsy & bought coffee sleeves in bulk from an online vendor. Keeping with the black/white striped theme, I knew these straws would be the cherry on top.
Hot Cocoa requires marshmallows, so I recruited Miss Ruby Disko (mastermind behind my bouquet & owner of frosting guns) to home make some fun marshmallows. She whipped up Vanilla Bean Marshmallows & Toasted Coconut Marshmallows for topping flair. Alongside these edible clouds were raw sugar cubes & Hershey’s White Chocolate Peppermint Kisses.
Boom, there ya have it: a “Warming Bar”!
