Decorating with Coffee Beans

For my daughter''s upcomming wedding reception, she wants to decorate the tables by sprinkling coffee beans around the candles & vases on the white tableclothes. Since the beans are not for consumption we were considering buying green coffee beans & roasting them ourselves to save on cost. Our question is this: Does anyone know if the oils from the coffee beans will stain the white table linen? We cant have that happening & I hate to invest the time & money into purchasing them, roasting them, and then finding out that they will leave a stain on the white linen''s. Any suggestions? Is this even a concern?

I don't think you would see brown stains on the linens, but probably some oil stains which can usually be removed with a water/vinegar solution.

when you roast, just do a very light roast, just past the first crack maybe.

That way there shouldnt be any surface oils!

Another tips

I would suggest picking out some of the roasted coffee beans before putting them on the table, and rub them hard between two sheets of linen, or other material of similar fabric, so that you''ll know whether or not it will rub off onto the linen sheets.

Or you might just want to make a few table center pieces with coffee made into candles or something like that. This way if you want the scent of coffee and have it look decorative, this may be something to look at... :grin:
