Ho Ho Ho Santa Claus is coming to town! Christmas is such a magical time of year and it just so happens to be my favorite time of year to host guests. I had a few girlfriends over a couple days ago for an afternoon filled with movies, gossip and of course lots of holiday treats. I served one of my favorite new flavors of Starbucks® coffee (Starbucks® Peppermint Mocha Flavored Ground Coffee 11 oz) along with a DIY toppings bar. You can shop for the coffee below buy clicking on the photo below! 

Although the Starbucks® Peppermint Mocha Flavored Ground Coffee is incredibly delicious and doesn’t need toppings, it’s so much fun to create  DIY option. Did you know that you can purchase Starbucks® ground coffee at Walmart and create delicious cups of coffee at home? I always keep a few packages on hand, especially during these chilly months when I don’t feel like leaving the house. 

Every year I host one large ugly sweater themed Christmas party, but throughout the season I have small gatherings with close friends. I love catching up, and it seems like everyone is in such a great mood this time of year. Before each gathering I make sure I always have two things: Starbucks® Coffee and homemade cookies! Here’s the thing, the holidays are busy… people are tired, and they want coffee! I love the Starbucks® Peppermint Mocha flavor because it is festive and makes the party that much more special. It also pairs wonderfully with cookies.

 

Did you know that this holiday season if you purchase three (3) qualifying Starbucks®packaged coffee (10-20oz.), Starbucks® K-Cup® packs (9-32ct.), VIA® Instant (5-8ct.), Starbucks® Syrups (12.17oz.), or Starbucks® Cookie Straw packs (9.17oz.) products in a single transaction at Walmart stores from 11/1/17 through 12/26/17 you will receive 75 bonus stars when you upload your receipt at Starbucks Stars

What is your favorite way to entertain this holiday season? Are you hosting any parties, small or large?  It is such a great time of year to get together and I encourage everyone to enjoy the season with friends and family. If you’re looking to create a small DIY Coffee Bar like I did,  I have created a tutorial for you below. You can shop the coffee here:
