Nov 16th 2021

Just think…snow falling outside, dusting the pine trees white…a hot mug of Door County Christmas in your favorite cup, the fireplace roaring, and Burl Ives in the background singing out your favorite carols. This truly is the best time of the year, especially in Door County. We are blessed with beauty all around us, all year long, but the snow-covered trees and twinkling lights on everyone’s front porches really make this time of year magical. Not only that, but it sets the perfect scene for any kind of Holiday party! We have put together some tips and tricks to make your Holiday entertaining easy and festive!

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 coffeeCocoa and you will be off to a good start! We have a few fun recipes to follow, like our Wisconsin Warm-Up or our Swiss Café! Order some fun holiday flavored syrups (we like getting them from Amazon) and let your creativity flow! You can take it up a notch higher, with a little boozy cream, which just entails adding a little bit of Jameson to your whipped cream and beating it with your hand mixer for a few minutes!

Try new recipes and create a brunch: Who doesn’t love a fun family brunch during the holidays? From Connie’s Strata, to our Heavenly Caramel 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!

Bake ALL the Christmas cookies: Cookie tray are not only delicious, they are a beautiful addition to any party spread!  Try some of our favorite recipes, using our Holiday coffee to fill up your plate, the Double Chocolate Candy Cane Coffee Cookies, or the White Christmas Cut-out cookies!
