A coffee cart is a fun twist on a regular bar cart. It pairs so perfectly for the Holidays. I especially 
love it for a daytime gathering or maybe a gathering of people that don’t usually drink alcohol. I 
have a great group of “mom friends” that got together for this party and these car cart ideas were perfect for them. 
And what pairs well with coffee? Coffee cake of course! The cinnamon always reminds me of 
Christmas too so it’s a perfect match. A great way to get into the Christmas spirit.

CHRISTMAS COFFEE CART IDEAS

The new Starbucks® Holiday coffees from Walmart are SO good, they were a huge hit as part of my coffee cart ideas with my guests. I picked up some Starbucks® Peppermint Mocha Ground Coffee and Peppermint Mocha Caffè Latte K-Cups®. I served the coffee in clear coffee mugs on my bar cart alongside K-Cups® for anyone that wanted seconds or to snag a few to bring home.

Also on the coffee cart, I placed some fun holiday mix ins that guests could add like cookie straws and candy canes in addition to the usual white sugar that I also picked up while I was at Walmart. It made for a really festive display. I had some plates and napkins readily available for that delicious coffee cake (recipe below!). The “baby it’s cold outside” sign couldn’t have been more fitting for warm coffee.

In addition to the decor, I always like to include some sort of activity and a take home gift, this combines both. After guests were done drinking their coffee, they rinsed out their mugs and were able to decorate them to take home and use again and again. Here’s how:

All you’ll need is various colors of Oil-Based Paint Pens and the mugs of course!


Allow guests to decorate however they’d like using the paint pens removing any mistakes with rubbing alcohol. When their design is complete, Allow the glasses to dry for at least 20 minutes then place in the oven. Heat the oven to 350 degrees (after the glasses are put in so it warms them up slowly!) Leave them in for 20 minutes and then turn off the oven leaving the glasses inside until they cool. Easy right? Remember decorated mugs are hand wash only.

These girls are some of my closest friends and all becoming moms together has been so fun for us and our kids. Getting together to welcome the holidays together is so important to me and is always a great time. We often get together in the mornings with our kids over coffee and this was just a fun way to bring that to the next level to get into the holiday spirit, a favorite of us all.
