A S’mores Tower is a delicious way to add a summer theme to your coffee bar. Using colorful vintage dishes adds a touch of nostalgia to it as well.
I’ve been inspired by s’mores bars, stations, corners, trays, wedding favors, lollipops, and cupcakes, all summer long. For my own s’mores project, I chose to emulate a DIY S’Mores Party/Dessert Table Decor from The Creative Studio.
I began by stacking some s’mores-colored plates, a compote, a cake stand, and a bowl. The brown bowl on top is a bronze Ambiance Versailles bowl. It reminds me of the Brown Dip pattern from McCoy that I adore. It represents chocolate in this vignette. I loaded it with marshmallows for color contrast. It sets on top of a white Indiana/Colony Glass Harvest Compote. I put some masking tape in between the dishes to prevent slipping-which could result in breakage.
On the second “shelf,” I stacked a Homer Laughlin Coventry plate on top of a Savannah cake plate. The golden brown color of the Homer Laughlin dinner plate is similar to the color of graham crackers. I loaded this level with small Hershey’s chocolate bars.
The bottom tray is an Indiana/Colony Glass Harvest chop plate. I collect this pattern, and Hobnail milk glass as well. I don’t have that many pieces, because I prefer to find them “in the wild,” rather than ordering them online. It’s more fun to happen upon a coveted piece in a thrift store or garage sale. The milk glass is the marshmallow color in my arrangement. The honey-brown graham crackers look pretty on the white milk glass plate.
I used my Sango Nova Brown cream pitcher and open sugar bowl to hold my coffee stirrers and sugar. I also have the lidded butter dish and shakers in this pattern. It’s hard for me to resist anything that looks like the Brown Dip pattern, as I mentioned earlier. I wanted to have coffee with the s’mores, and the Sango set had perfect coordinating colors. I made a sign with a chalk board ornament and some yellow chalk. Signs make everything better, in my opinion. They help convey ideas.
The coffee cups are unmarked. They look well-made, like they were kiln-fired by a potter. I was never able to identify them, but I still love them. Of course I had to include some S’Mores International Delight creamer! I set some Hazelnut Coffee Mate creamer out as well.
I placed everything on top of a gorgeous vanilla-colored tablecloth. I enjoy creating hot chocolate bars, dessert bars, and etc. for the people that live in my little cottage. I will probably leave this one out for a few weeks, and replenish it with different flavors. I would like to use Reeses Peanut Butter Cups and chocolate graham crackers once the Hershey bars and regular graham crackers are eaten.
