Creating a Patriotic Coffee Bar for the Summer Months💗🫖🧢

Enhance each season with a touch of decor; in summer, let vibrant colors and breezy elements breathe life into your space...

-Marcia 💗

One of my favorite projects this summer has been setting up a patriotic-themed coffee bar for July. I take pride in making a conscious effort not to constantly buy new decorations. That’s not to say that I never do, but I always start by editing what I have, checking to see what I can use and reuse. Amazingly, I can create fun and welcoming areas in my home using items I already possess, often moving things around from room to room.

For my coffee bar, I went through my items and looked at last year’s coffee bar photos. I decided to switch it up a bit, sticking with the red, white, and blue theme. I put out some patriotic napkins and decorative towels. One of my favorite touches is adding appropriately colored candies from a local candy store called Cranberry Sweets, located here along the Oregon coast. Red, white, and blue jellybeans are a fun addition to my coffee bar area, adding a celebratory treat.

I like to keep things simple and not too cluttered, so I don’t put out a lot of items—just enough to add a little sparkle (no pun intended). This approach allows me to create a charming and festive coffee bar without overwhelming the space.

The result is a cozy, patriotic coffee bar that embodies the summer spirit and provides a warm, welcoming spot for family and friends to gather.

Feel free to share your own decorative ideas and themes in the comments below!
