Let Summer Begin: The Coffee Bar

Summer is finally almost here! A time to spend more days at home. A time to stop, reflect, and be thankful for all of our blessings.

I am so grateful for slower days, when I can putter around in the house.


Today I stripped the house décor of all pinks and yellows,

bringing out my box from the basement labeled


“Blue and White Summer.”

  In late May, I love to create a Coastal Beach theme

in theLiving Room, Dining Room, and Kitchen


It is an environment that is refreshing and cool. 


Here’s a peak at what I’m doing now:

Later on this week, I am hosting a Coffee for some women who have served as mentors for our church youth

 In 3 days, our home will be brimming with kids, ladies, and delicious food to be enjoyed with Iced Coffee. 

We are going with a Beachy Coastal Theme for the gathering.

I fell in love with the Coffee Bar Idea discovered years ago on Pinterest. 


My husband claims he has never met anyone who gets so much joy from changing a couple of coffee cups and items around on a few shelves. 


I think he secretly loves it that I get so excited, though, because he made these shelves for me,

and he is a Big Coffee Drinker!  


He and I gather here very early every morning to pour a few cups and chat before getting dressed and ready to face the day.   It has been a pleasure to indulge in different creamers and flavored coffees, and I credit the Coffee Station for inspiring us to make this ritual a daily one.

Do you enjoy puttering and setting up new vignettes?
