Hot Chocolate and Hot Apple Cider Bar

Jingle bells, jingle bells! Sorry! We are already practicing some our Christmas stuff at school. We have our Christmas program just 10 days after we come back from Thanksgiving! Things are getting pretty hectic! So I could take some time to slow down and enjoy a hot drink, I set up a hot chocolate and apple cider bar! Have you done one of these too? My kids love it! Whenever we have guests over, they love to ‘fancy up’ their drinks.

We have no snow here, just cold and fog, but I loved this saying and added it to my chalkboard. I enjoy being able to change the sayings on it for each season or celebration.

I added some evergreen branches from my yard to the top along with a sparkly white triangle banner.

I found this World Market wine holder at a yard sale, and just had to bring it home. I used it to hold mugs instead. I have to find a few more that will fit! I layered some faux and real greens on top along with some wooden beads I spray painted white #whatapain!.

Next to the mugs I have some mason jars filled with some goodies to add to your drink. There are cinnamon sticks to stir with, chocolate chips and white chocolate chips. I found the cute little tags here. I used baker’s twine to tie them on.

On the other end of the bar, I have a big glass jar of hot chocolate, some chocolate syrup and some fun chocolate sprinkles and some cinnamon. I would like to add a bottle of caramel sauce too.

Right in the middle I have some hot apple cider, the marshmallows and spoons. Peppermint sticks will be on my list the next time I go to the store.

It is really nice to have everything out and ready to go when friends come over. No digging around in my cupboards trying to find all the supplies! You could easily make this a coffee or tea bar too.

Hope you all have a wonderful week! Thanksgiving will be here soon and then on to Christmas!

Sunshine and Blessings

    What a great area to set up a bar. Practically out of nothing. And yet you have made it into something special. I love the little holder for the cups and all the jars that you are using. And all the ornaments add such a festive touch.

    I love it Pamela!!! Using the wine holder for the mugs is such a nice idea and I love the whole look with the evergreen branches and the garland! The Jar labels are so cute as well. I’d love to come by to have a cup of cocoa!!! 😉
