This holiday season, we are all spending more time in, and unfortunately, not even with all of our favorite people! But there is joy to be had, and memories to be made this year, even if it looks different than what we are used to. Sure, we have spent a lot of time this year at home, and a lot of us are feeling like the Holiday season won’t be much fun without our normal hustle and bustle, and that could not be further from the truth! We have come up with some of our favorite Holiday activities to do at home, check them out!
1: Bake ALL the Christmas cookies: Cookies mail quite well, so try some of our favorite recipes, using our Holiday coffee to fill up your plate for Santa, and to send to all your friends and family you are missing this year! Some of our favorite recipes are the Gingerbread Spice Pinwheels, or the White Christmas Cut-out cookies! You can wrap the up with a fun note and send them off! Baking cookies is one of the most fun family traditions, and the perfect way to get the whole family involved!2: Go all out on the Holiday décor at home, and even make some yourself! Check out our Door County Coffee Pinterest page for some really fun and simple Holiday décor DIY’s! From using old ornaments, or dressing up an old wreath, there are so many fun ways to decorate for the Holiday’s with things you already have at home! Just make sure the coffee is hot while you are working – we hear it helps the creativity flow!
3: Set up a Holiday Coffee & Cocoa bar! We all love our Gingerbread Spice Latte’s or our Candy Cane Mochas, so why not have them right at home! Stock up on all your favorite flavors of Door County Holiday coffee & Cocoa and you will be off to a good start! We have a few fun recipes to follow, like our Wisconsin Warm-Up, Minty Irish Cream or our Swiss Café! Order some fun holiday flavored syrups (we like getting them from Amazon) and let your creativity flow!
4: Try new recipes and create a fun at-home brunch! Who doesn’t love a fun family brunch during the holidays? From Connie’s Strata, to our Caramel Pecan Stuffed French Toast, we have 100’s of fun recipes to try, so you can have brunch every Saturday from now until Christmas! An extra fun idea is to pick a different Door County Holiday flavored coffee and base the recipes around the flavor profile! Our Frosted Cinnamon Bun Coffee Donuts pair perfectly with the wonderful cinnamon flavors in our Jingle Bell Java!
Even thought these may not be your typical Holiday activities, with all of your favorite people, there are still so many fun things to do at home with your family! Take time this year to really take in and enjoy the Christmas lights glistening on the tree, with a cup of Door County Christmas, as your kids decorate the cutout cookies. Oftentimes, we are so wrapped up in making the perfect dish to bring, or the perfectly wrapped gift, that we miss the moments that matter most, and this year is our chance to really cherish them and take it all in.
