I found this beautiful tray at Ross for $8.99
On closer inspection it had a small imperfection, it wasn’t enough for me to put it back but it was enough for me to draw it to the attention of the cashier for a discount 🙂
Then I found these white take out boxes in the clearance section at target. I wasn’t sure if I really liked them but for $4.98 I couldn’t resist, I got two of them.
They fit perfectly on the side of the coffee maker and the tops are sealed to keep the contents fresh which was an added bonus.
Lots of space for coffee
Again in Target, I found this soy sauce bottle for $2.98 and thought it would work great for milk or creamer.
I just love the interesting shape, it adds an interesting element to my DIY coffee bar.
I figured I should add other options in addition to coffee, so I wanted to add tea to my bar. But struggled to find an inexpensive tea holder. Then I thought about my butter dish, I hardly ever use it and the top inverted would be the perfect size!
So this is how I stored my teas before, in a bowl in my pantry.
And now…..the butter dish worked perfectly!!
Back to target, I got this honey jar a while ago. I thought it was so cute and I can finally use it in my bar, cause I love adding honey to my tea.
Here is the coffee.
It was cute but you know how I love labels! Wouldn’t want to get the cappuccino and coffee mixed up! I found these cute labels in the dollar bins at target months ago, I had no idea what I would do with them now but they are perfect for this.
I love the brown labels on the white containers. And yes I had to look up the spelling of cappuccino
Tea and Milk
Even though the honey jar actually says honey, I still slapped a label on the top…what can I say I like consistency.
Here is everything all cute and labelled 🙂
And of course some mini spoons for stirring
This was such an easy project that I think my guests will enjoy and also now I have a central place for everything when I make my tea at night. win win! I hope you will try this out and let me know how it turns out, I love to hear from you!
We don't drink coffee in our house either so I may give this a try. Regardless, I love that gold tray!!
Thanks Esthetic Goddess! I love your recent post on he product you used to get those gorgeous eyelashes!
Thanks so much, Keitha! I'm so used to them now I don't pay attention to them till someone ask me about them. Anyone can have them.
What a lovely and thoughtful coffee bar! I know your guests will appreciate it. Ok, now I need to find some space to do this!
Awww thank you @Pam! I have actually been using it alot also for my tea. Now if I can just keep my twincesses out of the honey jar this idea would have been golden! lol
I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment. 🙂

Thanks for stopping by all the way from the Dominican Republic Jen! I know exactly what you mean, this wouldn't work in Barbados either, those ants are relentless! I appreciate the blog love, off to check yours out! 🙂
