The chillier wedding months are approaching so it’s time to bring some warm comfort to your fall and winter weddings.

One of the most unique and clever ways to do this is to set-up a DIY Coffee Bar at your wedding with a Keurig® brewing system taking the center stage for warm beverages without the wait.

How about Green Mountain Coffee® Pumpkin Spice Coffee K-Cup® pods for fall weddings and maybe a Raspberry Chocolate Truffle Coffee K-Cup® pods for winter weddings?

Do you know the best part when it comes to creating your very own coffee bar at your wedding reception? You get to bring the Keurig® brewer into your new home after the big day to start each day with a fresh brewed cup of coffee. {if coffee isn’t your thing - you can also use the Keurig® to make fresh batches of hot chocolate, cider, and even tea}

Here are 14 creative ideas to bring your very own indoor DIY Coffee Bar at your Wedding Reception to life {even a perfect idea for a bridal shower} . . .

1. Don’t forget about the Keurig® K575 brewer for as the star of the DIY Coffee Bar

2. A printable “Love is Brewing” sign {download your 5x7 print here}

3. Decorative chalkboards are perfect for names of the K-Cup® pods or type of roast

4. Pretty bowls to hold the coffee K-Cup pods in

5. A large collection of coffee mugs - can be all white, a mix of color, vintage, or even an eclectic mix {the choice is yours}

6. Use crates, cake stands, etc to vary the height of the items at the coffee bar for added interest

7. Don’t forget about some sweets for pairing with the coffee {cookies, mini muffins, pastries, donuts, it’s all good}

8. Cake stands, plates and bowls to present the display of yummy treats

9. Mini plates for guests to place their sweets on or cake stands for the sweets

10. Napkins {simple or decorative} - you can even rubber stamp something cute in the corner of them

11. Drink stirrers if you choose {can even hot glue on a fancy pom pom to a wooden stirrer}

12. Consider votive candles to bring a cozy feel to the coffee bar set-up

13. Tablecloth or pretty linen to present everything on

14. A large bowl to collect all the used coffee K-cup® pods in {you certainly don’t want a trash can next to the pretty coffee bar}

This list could go on and on…from bridal showers to wedding receptions, a DIY coffee bar featuring your Keurig® brewer is a must-have this fall!

Fall Wedding Ideas with Acorns and Cute Squirrels

I'm going a little nuts today on the blog with a fall themed inspiration board where acorns and cute squirrels take center stage. Cute wording for the wedding would be saying the couple's names and that they're nuts for each other. This Acorn and Squirrel Themed Wedding Inspiration Board combines creams and pearls with the brown shades of fall and I just love the elegance it creates.

Elegant Fall Party Decor : Pink and Gold Pumpkins

Today's post is look back into the archives with two of my favorite photos for fall party decor ideas. Since it's still fall, wouldn't it be fun to decorate for a bridal shower or engagement party with painted pumpkins? How about pumpkins that are painted pink, white and gold and displayed on candlesticks? Maybe even hollow out a few pumpkins and use them as vases for beautiful floral arrangements? How about having an elegant fall wedding and lining the center of the tables with gold pumpkins and pine cones on a burlap runner?
