As we walk outside each morning and feel the crisp air on our faces, we are reminded that the holiday season is right around the corner. Gifts to buy, cards to send and parties to plan, there is always lots to do for the upcoming holidays! For us, entertaining is always a highlight! While buying the perfect gift makes us feel warm on the inside, we love nothing more than hosting our family and friends to celebrate the holiday season together.

Getting ready for the celebration

Before the party even begins, we set the tone for the event. This starts by sending out an invitation early to all of our guests as we know that people over commit themselves during this time of year. Ensuring that you are at the top of the party list requires sending out a save the date with advanced notice. We like to set the tone of the event by choosing a photo to include on the invite! Since we are having a family brunch midday, we chose a picture of us and our favorite brunch.

Hosting the perfect party

The ambiance of a party is so important. As people walk into our homes, we want them to feel the warmth and comfort. During the holidays, we enjoy hosting during the day. Brunch allows for our family and friends to come with their kids which fills the room with energy and fun! As we put together the menu, we make sure that there is something for everyone. From the french toast lovers to the yogurt and fruit eaters, we make sure that everyone is covered!

The same goes for that delicious cup of coffee that we all can’t live without. When you walk into a coffeehouse, you know that you will be able to order exactly what you want and the same goes in our home! Who needs a coffeehouse when you have a Keurig® K-Latte™ Single Serve Coffee & Latte Maker!?

A cup for every guest

We love using our Keurig® K-Latte™ coffeehouse brewer because we can offer our guests a drink that will meet their exact needs and one that they will truly enjoy! The days of brewing a pot of coffee and leaving milk and sugar on the counter are gone and the days of personalized coffeehouse beverages are here!

While one of us loves a freshly brewed coffee with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top, the other loves a hot creamy latte with frothy, delicious foam on top! What kind of party would it be if we couldn’t please everyone!?

Our Keurig® K-Latte™ coffeehouse brewer ensures that we can meet everyone’s needs, brewing a steaming hot cup on a moments notice. Simply pop in any K-Cup® pod whether it be Green Mountain Coffee Roasters® Vanilla Espresso Roast Blend or The Original Donut Shop® Medium Roast Coffee! Then, with a quick pour of milk into the frother, we are able to whip up steamed milk and delicious froth to offer that extra special touch on their coffeehouse beverage.

Create stations

Family get togethers are all about being comfortable and relaxed. We want our guests to cozy up and eat wherever they feel comfortable instead of having a formal meal at the table. We love to create stations and label items on the buffet…it’s the teacher in us, making it organized, simple and clear for all of the guests! People can come and choose what they want, when they want it and the labels allow for them to know what items meet their dietary requirements. We love this for our guests, but as a hostess, it is so helpful as we can plan and set everything out ahead of time to make sure all items are covered!

Get the Coffeehouse look

You can have all the right things to offer, but displaying it is what it’s all about! When serving lattes, use a glass mug that showcases the delicious colors of the coffee! Since you will be serving both coffee and lattes, people won’t mistake their beverage for another when they can see through the mug!

Setting out a tray with coffee accessories like little spoons, sugars, milks and toppings give the feeling of a true coffeehouse experience! We always love how easy it is to offer our guests exactly what they want at our holiday gatherings! The Keurig® K-Latte™ coffeehouse brewer allows us to give our guests the experience of being in a coffeehouse from the comfort of our own home!

For $99, you can give your guests the same by picking one up in stores and online at Walmart this holiday season! Get your own here:
