There is snow falling and the weather has turned cold. There is a pot of Door County Christmas on and you pour yourself another cup. The lights from the Christmas tree glisten from the living room. This truly is the most wonderful time of the year! There is so much fun to be had at Christmastime, and we just had to share some of our favorite things with you!
1: Bake ALL the Christmas cookies: Try some of our favorite recipes, using our Holiday coffee to fill up your plate for Santa, and to enjoy with all your friends and family this year! Some of our favorite recipes are the Snickerdoodle Sandwich Cream Cookies or the White Christmas Cut-out cookies! Baking cookies is one of the most fun family traditions, and the perfect way to get the whole family involved! Check out all our favorite Holiday flavored recipes here.
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 to make it new, 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 Door County Christmas 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, Tiramisu Coffee Hot Cocoa or our Swiss Café! Order some fun holiday flavored syrups (we like getting them from Amazon or TJ Maxx) 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!
5: Make Fun Holiday Gifts To Give: From Hot Cocoa Ornaments to a coffee scented candle or coffee face scrub, there are so many fun gifts you can make with coffee! We have an entire Holiday Gift DIY Pinterest board dedicate to fun and easy gifts that everyone can make together right at home!
6: Shop Local: There is something to be said about shopping at the local stores and boutiques in your hometown, especially here in Door County. Every little town in Door County has cute stores, from Cornucopia and Bliss in Sturgeon Bay, to our store and Door County Candle in Carlsville, Plus so many more! Just take a ride through your downtown and stop and shop along the way! Plus, you are guarantees to see some beautiful holiday lights and displays in every storefront, what could be better!
7: Attend A Holiday Event: If you have been to Door County, you know we love to have an event! You can find a Holiday event every weekend from mid-November through the end of the year! Form Holiday parades to tree lightings and scavenger hunts, there is no fun shortage around here during the Christmas season! Most towns will have a Christmas parade or some kind of fun event, so just look into your city's social media or web page and see what you can find! There is nothing better than making a cup of hot cocoa and heading to the local tree lighting, you really feel like you re living in a Hallmark movie!
We hope you found some fun ideas and are enjoying the Holiday season just like we are! Cheers!
