Need an easy fall coffee bar DIY? You can create a pretty fall coffee bar in just 20 minutes! When I have a crowd at StoneGable I like to put together a coffee bar so everyone can serve themselves, especially before breakfast. Today I’m sharing a simple coffee bar you can make this fall to!
Coffee can take on the most delicious flavors especially in the fall. There are so many wonderful seasonal coffees! Pumpkin spice, hazelnut, vanilla spice, cinnamon, vanilla nutmeg… YUM!
So, how about serving it in a coffee bar!
START WITH THE COFFEE BAR BASICS
It’s so smart to go vertical with a coffee bar! What a space saver! I used a big galvanized tiered tray to put all my coffee bar essentials in.
The Keurig is standing by with plenty of fall-inspired coffee pods. So let’s build this fun coffee bar!
I love using blue and white when my color palette is saturated with orange! I think blue and white cuts the harshness of orange and because they are complementary colors they work so wonderfully together.
This way I can use all the gorgeous saturated hues, shades and tints of fall orange and not have it so much in-your-face!
I think blue and white and orange can look very sophisticated!
Using mismatched tableware like the sugar bowl and creamer is one of my signature decorating moves!
I use the same colors and balance the design! Don’t you love this pretty design trick?
MUGS AND NAPKINS
What’s a coffee bar without coffee mugs?
I’m using my white coffee mugs and rolling up some pretty cloth fall napkins inside of the mugs.
I recently purged over two-thirds of my napkins. Napkins don’t last forever! Like most things, they have an expiration date! They get stained and worn and there is nothing pretty about a drab cloth napkin.
So I just kept the best of the best napkins! And the rusty orange napkins I’m using today make the cut!
A LITTLE NOSH
While I’m leisurely cooking breakfast or chatting my guests can not only help themselves to coffee but a little something to nibble on too!
For this coffee bar I chose oranges, for their color of course, and a moist delicious streusel glazed zucchini bread. I would have loved to show you how pretty the pumpkin bread looked on the blue and white plate next to the tiered tray but SOMEONE ATE IT ALL before I could get a picture!
I guess that just shows you how good the zucchini bread is! You can see the recipe HERE.
ADDING FALL ACCENTS
This fall coffee bar DIY has lots of pretty fall bits and pieces to it!
I have crowned myself the EMBELLISHMENT QUEEN because I love to make things pretty!
So, adding fall elements to the tiered fall coffee bar was fun. I dug into my fall stash and picked out some fall leaves and brambly berry napkin rings and added them here and there on the trays.
And of course, it wouldn’t be a fall coffee bar without a few little pumpkins. I especially love those darling white baby boo’s!
And the last thing I added was little bunches of pyracantha from our tree outside.
I assembled the top of the tiered tray with lots of fall elements and a little surprise!
A combination of small blue and white containers grace the top tier of the fall coffee bar. And a large chinoiserie egg cup is filled with a little candy corn! Isn’t that a bit of fall fun?
The candy corn was really used as a fun fall accent but it was g-o-n-e when I disassembled the coffee bar! Hmmm, I wonder if it was the same person who at all the zucchini bread!
Grab some fun fall elements and a few mugs and napkins and make a fall coffee bar!
