When we think of fall, we think of: crisp cool weather, bright orange and yellow leaves, and a warm beverage shared with the person we love most.
Here is your chance to get creative by adding the “warm and fuzzies” you get from your favorite cup of coffee/cocoa to your wedding invitations! Want to stick to your theme but want a subtle coffee/cocoa inspiration? Choose a rich brown hued envelope or color palette to bring a comforting and classic look to your invitations. Looking to get cocoa/coffee crazy for your invites? Add your favorite hot chocolate/perfect cup of recipe to your invitations and package them in mini coffee bean bags. This will not only look aesthetically pleasing, but will also give your guests an opportunity to share your favorite fall beverage before your big day!
Wedding décor sets the tone and mood for your wedding day, and when you decide to have coffee and cocoa- make sure the décor speaks of it! Here are some great coffee/cocoa details to add:
- Coffee/Cocoa beans used as centerpieces.
- Coffee/Cocoa beans used to hold name cards upright for guests at tables.
- Burlap! Since coffee/cocoa beans are traditionally packaged in burlap bags- incorporate burlap throughout your setting! Examples could be: table runners, burlap bows behind chairs, and placemats.
- Consider adding a vintage inspired coffee/cocoa bar for guests to customize cozy and delicious beverages! If you really want to up-the-ante, hire a professional barista to serve guests!
- Add delicate espresso shot glasses to silver serving platters to use as a touch of décor and to also to surprise your guests with a twist on a traditional “shot” at weddings by replacing it with warm espresso.
These details will not only incorporate your shared love of coffee/cocoa, but will also compliment the fall season!
