How to create a Stocking Stuffer Soda Bar this holiday season with festive flavors like cinnamon and winter spiced cranberry.
My goodness, I am so excited to share this Stocking Stuffer Soda Bar with you!
With the holidays right around the corner, we are gearing up for one festive party after another.
Since we currently have 3 parties planned at our house between now and the end of the year with 25+ people each time I thought I should start preparing for all of the fun.
I decided to create a festive soda bar that I can quickly put together for any or all of the parties we will be hosting this year and that you can easily create in your home this season too!
So I picked up the essentials that I needed at Kroger, put on some holiday music, and started creating this Stocking Stuffer Soda Bar on our breakfast nook.
Did you know that Coke is the #1 brand associated with the winter holiday season? It’s the brand that sets off the feeling of the holidays!
And they are definitely starting off our holiday season on a very tasty note while making the holidays a little more special!
I love that Coca-Cola® is bringing together two-holiday leaders: Coca-Cola® (the #1 brand of the Holidays) + Cinnamon (a top spice of the Holidays) = the delicious launch of Coca-Cola® Cinnamon.
Plus the colors of these sodas work perfectly in this Stocking Stuffer Soda Bar display!
When I started dreaming up this festive drink display I decided that I wanted this holiday soda bar to work for a variety of holiday occasions.
And I feel like I accomplished that goal with this Stocking Stuffer Soda Bar.
You could create this for an office party, a neighborhood progressive party, or even your next holiday wrapping party with all of your friends.
So here is how I created this Stocking Stuffer Bar and how you can create one in your home too!
1. Decide on a Color Scheme
For this Stocking Stuffer Soda Bar, I decided to go with a classic red and green color scheme.
I loved that the Coca-Cola® Cinnamon, Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry, and Coca-Cola® Glass Bottles all fit perfectly in this color scheme, so I went with it for the whole soda bar!
But you could totally make yours unique to any color or theme you prefer.
2. Decorate Vertically
I decorated this holiday soda bar from the top down.
I started on the wall with a Stocking Stuffer Soda Bar Chalkboard sign, topped with a garland, and hung with mini stockings.
Next, I placed the Coca-Cola® Cinnamon, Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry, and the Coca-Cola® 8oz 6pk Glass bottles in my tall tiered stand.
And let me tell you, I’m loving the new twist on the Sprite® Cranberry with this Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry. The addition of warm spice notes perfectly plays off of the essence of the holidays!
I also added some tall bottle brush trees to balance off the other side of the soda bar.
Then I placed a printable sign to let my guests know that they could enjoy drinks now and take one home to use as a stocking stuffer for a friend or family member who loves Coca-Cola® too!
3. Prepare Drink Ingredients
I then decided to add some fresh drink topping ingredients that guests can use to top their drinks.
A few that I chose to include were fresh cranberries, cinnamon sticks, and rosemary stems.
Pro Tip: Be sure to keep your Coca-Cola® Cinnamon, Sprite® Winter Spiced Cranberry, and the Coca-Cola® 8oz 6pk Glass bottles refrigerated until right before your guests arrive so that they are perfectly chilled for your party!
And finally, right before guests arrive is the perfect time to fill your cups with ice, turn on some music, and let the fun begin!
