A Garden Christmas Beverage Bar- www.gildedbloom.com

Fall has just flown by, it seems, and now it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at our house.  During the holidays, I often like to serve hot tea, coffee, and chocolate in the garden as this year we have beautiful sunshine and crisp cool afternoon air to enjoy.  I use a French press and heated carafe of water with the tiered beverage bar to serve hot drinks on the patio.  As much of our winter garden is evergreen, with only blooming cyclamen and citrus, it makes a very relaxing space for a choice cup of Christmas cheer.

To reflect the spirit of the season, and for holiday entertaining at home, this year I prepared a Christmas beverage bar filled with treats for this memorable time in the garden.  Here is a simple and fun idea using any tiered stand and a few Christmas dishes with ornaments or other embellishments.

For this year's Christmas beverage bar I chose a Woodland theme that would fuse with the patio garden and kitchen.  It is a rustic birch bark tiered stand, lined with garlands, filled with Christmas mugs, a few bowls, and winter bird ornaments.  Then I added coffee, instant cocoa, tea bags, and Christmas complements like candy canes and chocolates.

The part of the winter garden I most love is the birds scampering about, so having bird embellishments on the edges of the trays seemed fitting.

I hope you have a lovely holiday season and enjoy the beauty of this wonderful time of year!
