Throwing a baby shower brunch is the perfect opportunity to get creative with decor, styling and fun games. It鈥檚 also a fantastic time to bring out your favorite brunch-y party foods and drinks like chocolate scones and citrus refreshers (yes please!). Of course your guests will also be thrilled if you hand them a cup of coffee as they enter your house 鈥 it鈥檚 morning after all, and coffee brings a comforting start to the day. That鈥檚 why today we鈥檙e working with Folgers庐 Coffee to help you set up a top shelf coffee bar and DIY a seriously adorable baby brunch.

There are so many different coffees on the market. Folgers makes different kinds for every type of coffee lover and for every occasion. Having been around since 1850, they know what鈥檚 up when it comes to making the best cup o鈥 joe!

Stir Sticks

Speaking of coffee, since you鈥檒l be serving some at a DIY coffee bar, stir sticks are a must. We鈥檝e got two adorable options that are super easy to make.

Stirers-First

Materials and Tools:
鈥 colorful paper

鈥 wooden stir sticks

鈥 pom poms

鈥 straight edge

鈥 pen

鈥 utility knife

鈥 hot glue gun

鈥 scissors

Materials

We鈥檒l start with the pom poms.

Pom-Stirer-Step-1

Cut a slit into the pom pom, then add a dollop of hot glue and insert the stir stick.

How cute are these?!

Shape-Stirer-Step1

For the next stir stick, draw a few shapes, fold your paper in half and then cut them out so that you have two of the exact same shape. One will be on the front of the stick and the other will be on the back. Then use your shapes as a template to draw slightly larger versions of the same shapes.

Shape-Stirer-Step2

Fold your paper in half and cut out your shapes so that you have two of the same. To construct them, glue the smaller shape on top of the larger shape right in the center. Then add glue to your stir stick and adhere the shape to the stick.

Shape-Stirer-Step3

Flip it over and then attach your second (matching) shape to the back so that the stir stick has a front and back side.

We just love how these turned out. They鈥檙e perfect for a cup of coffee.

Bonus! To add a festive touch to our party decor, we also made a quick triangle paper bunting flag. Simply cut out a few dozen paper triangles and string them together!

Spin the Baby Bottle

Last but not least, we鈥檝e got a spin the bottle game.

Fill a bottle with sprinkles, then place it in the middle of a circle of cards. Write questions and other action items on each one. Give it a spin and let the entertainment begin.

Set up your table with treats and a stocked coffee bar. We added mini cupcakes, parfaits and a cheese plate. The coffee bar included Folgers Gourmet Selections庐 Lively Colombian Decaf K-cup庐 Pods, Folgers Gourmet Selections庐 Vanilla Biscotti K-cup庐 Pods, Folgers Classic Roast庐 Coffee, milk, non-dairy milk (soy or almond), sugar, cocoa, cinnamon, mint and a variety of Folgers Flavors庐 Coffee Enhancers. With such a wide variety of flavors, everyone can make their perfect cup.

Folgers-in-Keurig

Serve your guests Folgers Classic Roast庐 Coffee (brewed in a drip coffee maker) or let them brew a cup themselves with Vanilla Biscotti K-cup庐 Pods and Lively Colombian Decaf K-cup庐 Pods (using a Keurig), perfect for pregnant attendees.

Flavors

Folgers has delectable flavor additions so that you can make your cup just the way you like it. We were big fans of the Folgers Flavors庐 Coffee Enhancer Caramel with a sprinkle of cocoa on top, and our other favorite was Folgers Flavors庐 Coffee Enhancer Vanilla with a dash of cinnamon. So delicious!

Folgers-Shot

There are many ways you can brew Folgers, so you can make it regardless of which coffee maker you own. Check them out here! We brewed Folgers Classic Roast庐 Coffee (the coffee in the red can) using a drip coffee maker and the Vanilla Biscotti K-cup庐 Pods and Lively Colombian Decaf K-cup庐 Pods in a Keurig.
