How to organise a coffee bar for your Irish wedding reception.
On every corner or vacant premises coffee shops are popping up. All the major brands have reached my little piece of the world such as Costa, Starbucks and Insomnia. A cup of Tea is still a secure Irish staple but allot do enjoy a nice cup of Joe. With all this in mind I saw a fab photo on Instagram during the week of a wedding sign for an espresso bar and I thought with the media always enforcing that we Irish people focus a little too much on alcoholic beverages – I thought that maybe a coffee bar at a wedding reception would definitely be something I should have a look at.
Personalise your coffee bar – Make sure to personalise your coffee bar with decorations that tie into your event décor. Add custom touches like custom printed coffee cups or sleeves with a monogram or message.
Chalkboard signs make great accessories for any drink station! We love the idea of a sweet message like ‘Warm up here’ or ‘Baby it’s cold outside’ for a winter wedding. I would decide on a particular type of coffee and make it your signature coffee , you could name it after yourselves.
Popular items to have at your coffee bar
Different types of coffee (espresso, roasts, cappuccino, etc.)
Different coffee flavours
Unique coffee toppings
Different types of milk – full, low fat and soya milk
Additional Treats – Wedding coffee bar ideas extend beyond just the drinks. Consider coffee dessert bar items also to add to the whole experience such as:
Chocolate-dipped spoons or flavored coffee stirrers
Biscotti, mini donuts, or mini muffins as coffee related treats
Even Wow your guests with a donut wall !!!!
Coffee themed Wedding Favours – What about a coffee mug wedding favour. A cute coffee mug favour which family and friends can use again and again maybe include a little bag of cookies to sweeten the deal. Another clever idea would be to have a brown paper bag filled with coffee beans with the text “the perfect blend” and your names and date of wedding
DIY or Professional – There are two options available to you – this could definitely be a very promising project or you could hire someone to do the job. I came across an Irish company online Bean and Gone If you would love some further inspiration we have an earlier blog post Wedding Ideas for Coffee Lovers – with more great inspiration and information.
