  • a nice big tray
  • gingerbread shortbread holiday cookies, or Santa's Chocolate Chip Peppermint Cookies
  • candy canes-use as stirrers!
  • ribbon candy salt water taffy, and small chocolates
  • assorted teas sachets and coffee or Keurig cups in canisters
  • holiday sprinkles plus creamer and whip cream
  • hot cocoa mix and mini marshmallows
  • a french press
  •  small spoons colorful straws
  • a small pair of tongs for treats
  • small little red/white bowls or a footed bowl
  • small Christmas plates and napkins
  • cute colorful assorted coffee and tea cups
  • Santa ornament
  • honey or sugar cubes


  • Assemble a tray with canisters filled with tea sachets, coffee (or Keurig cups), and or hot cocoa. I found cocoa and mini marshmallows in glass bear jars, so cute!
  • Use bowls to display cookies and sweet treats. You want high and low bowls to make it interesting.
  • Set out cups, plates, tongs, and add a French press.
  • Use things you have, and repurpose anything red or white on your tray. Set near your coffee maker.
  • Enjoy, and Merry Christmas!


Many of the things on my tray are from HomeGoods. The little napkins were my Mom's and possibly from embroidered by her Mom. I cherish them.
