Christmas Brunch Bar Cart

Did you catch our Christmas brunch from earlier this week? To keep the spirits going, we are sharing our bar cart from the brunch Christmas party.

I had the food on the table as a buffet style and needed an area for guests to make their drinks for the party. On the bar cart, I had a hot chocolate station complete with festive toppings. I used a red hot water kettle to keep the hot chocolate warm and easy for serving. A three tiered tray kept all the garnishes organized. I used our red coffee mugs and mini Santa coffee mugs for displaying the extra toppings.

Jackson Morgan peppermint mocha was on the bottom of the bar cart for a spiked hot chocolate option. I like to give my guests the opportunity to make their own cocktails and customize with unique garnishes. Another great reason for using a bar cart is you can roll it next to the tree for drink refills when opening presents.

Christmas Hot Chocolate Toppings

  • Mini Marshmallows

  • Mini Gingerbread Houses

  • Peppermint Bark

  • Peppermint Spoons

  • Peppermint Cookies

Christmas Brunch

This year for Christmas, I wanted to host something different than your typical Christmas dinner. I opted for a Christmas brunch where I asked everyone to come in cozy pajamas and slippers to sip on spiked coffee and enjoy breakfast treats. Since the holiday season is always busy, a brunch time slot was perfect for everyone’s schedules.

Decor

I wanted to use my coveted green chairs from Society Social. I tied mini wreaths to the back of the chairs with gold ribbon. The greenery centerpiece with battery operated candles and lights made the party festive and since it is faux, I can use year after year. You could also recreate with real greenery. I like to keep things simple during the holiday season with decor since it is easy to go overboard.

Menu

Since it was a causal event in pajamas, a formal sit down with placemats did not seem right. A buffet style set up with bagels accompanied by cream cheese, donuts, Brightside Bakery treats, assortment of biscuits, and fruit was perfect for this party. We had a bar cart full of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream and garnishes for spiked hot chocolate or coffee.

Color Scheme

I kept to traditional red, green, and gold colors. I added in navy with the rug and Society Social bow back chairs. The touch of navy freshened up the normal Christmas color schemes. Since the table and food was colorful, I used only white serving pieces from the Berry and Thread collection by Juliska.

Stay tuned for more details from our Christmas brunch party. You can shop this post below.

Friendsgiving Bar Cart

Earlier this month, we shared our Friendsgiving party. What is a party without cocktails? It is no secret that I love a bar cart. I have used mine as a pie bar, biscuit bar, hot chocolate station, and even a place to store party favors.

For our Friendsgiving bar, I wanted to have a station for guests to make their own cocktails. I made sure to include different types of liquor along with our fall flavors of Jackson Morgan Southern Cream. I added a few fall staples such as cinnamon sticks and winter liquor favorites. Since this was a tasting party, the main cocktails were on the table on the tasting papers and the bar cart stored extra for anyone that wanted something different to sip on.

I kept the dripping dried moss and glass pumpkins from our Halloween party and used it on the bottom of the cart with liquor and pumpkins, since the holiday season goes by quickly I try to purchase decor that will work with several holidays. To tie in the table theme, I included napkins that coordinated with the table runner. A battery operated candle inside of a large glass pumpkin completed the cart.

Cheers!

Stop by our Instagram or Facebook at 4pm to see details on how to enter. Winner will be announced next Tuesday (11/20/18).

Friendsgiving Tasting Party Menu

For our Friendsgiving tasting party, I served small bites that paired well with our creams with a nod to the tastes of fall. I wanted this party to feel special, but not as stuffy as traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Several of the recipes I spiked with Jackson Morgan. For our family, banana pudding is a year round dessert especially when we have guests in town so I had to include it. Indulgent flavors such as truffles and salted caramel elevated the appetizers. I served everything as a buffet since the Jackson Morgan tasting was the main attraction for this dinner party.

The Menu

  • Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches with Pimento Cheese, Pickles, and Music City Mustard

  • Mini Truffle Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, cut small for easy dipping in the soup

  • Butternut Squash Soup, served in shooter glasses

  • Candied Pecans

  • Brown Sugar Pretzel Bites with Whipped Butter

  • Pretzel Bites with Honey Mustard Dipping Sauce

  • Cranberry Orange Bundt Cake, we used this recipe from Sally’s Baking Addiction and spiked with our whipped orange cream and topped with sugared cranberries

  • Mini Apple Hand Pies with salted caramel sauce spiked with our salted caramel cream

  • Mini Banana Puddings, we used this recipe from Paula Deen and spiked with our banana pudding cream
