Coffee Party With Coffee Filter Flowers

As a busy mom of three our schedules can be a little hectic and sometimes make it hard to see friends regularly. I’m the only one of my friends who is a stay at home mom and their busy work schedules further complicates our gatherings. This Summer my friends and I have arranged to meet together every couple of weeks for a play date and some much needed girl talk. Our kids are very close in age and it’s so much fun to see them play together.

Coffee Party Ideas #coffee #party

Last weekend I had the opportunity to try  Gevalia coffee from Safeway and thought it was the perfect chance to invite friends over. I arranged a mini display of flavored creamer and raw sugar to compliment our traditional roast coffee We laughed the entire 3 hours reminiscing about the crazy day trips we used to take before having kids. Coffee + friends + fun memories = good for the soul!

Coffee Party Ideas

My friends know to expect a mini tablescape on occasions like this so of course I took this opportunity to create a little coffee party decor! I used unfinished wood crates left over from the Safari Birthday Party to display the food and coffee cups. I also pulled out my burlap table runner that I use in my Fall decor. I think it helped pull the tablescape together and not make it look so bare.

White Coffee Mugs with Chalkboard Labels

The coffee mugs had a punched chalkboard label added to the front.

Mini Flag Pennant Food Picks

I wanted to keep things simple by picking up a few treats from the Safeway bakery. Just for fun I added mini pendant flags to the donuts using a toothpick and a Lifestyle Crafts die.

Coffee Party Tablescape
I also made brown coffee filter flowers with white fabric rosettes to glue onto the crates. They are SO easy to make and I plan to use them later this Fall. I’ll share a tutorial soon!

 We had a great time chatting over coffee, definitely much needed for this busy mom.

    A coffee party sounds awesome! I love coffee and anything with coffee in in it. Now I know what to do make with the filters from my old coffee pot.

    So pretty and clever! As my kids get older it seems harder and harder to get together with friends–hosting a morning coffee is a great idea. I love the chalkboard labels on the coffee mugs and coffee filters flowers. Thanks for sharing!

    Mmmm…a coffee party. I love it! Great idea for a simple girl’s night or afternoon. Maybe even some coffee syrups to add!
    and I love that you stayed with the coffee theme with the filter decor. Simple and classy.
