'Tis the season for cozy, winter weddings, and with the change in weather comes a change in scheduling your ceremony. Many brides are opting for morning weddings this time of year, instead of celebrating late into the evening in freezing temperatures. At MHW, we'd jump out of bed for any exchange of vows, but some of your guests might need a little nudge. Entice them to your celebration with fresh-brewed coffee! We've found some sweet ideas for incorporating caffeine into your reception, including personalized cup sleeves and coffee bars. You can even give mugs or small bags of your favorite fair-trade beans as favors for your guests! Drink up, and enjoy!
It's the most wonderful time of the year. And part of what makes it so, so wonderful is all of the holiday treats that abound this time of year, Christmas cocktails included.

And, yes -- they're all MHW tested and approved (and absolutely wonderful).
