But it does help to keep my website running. Thank you! The following is based strictly on my honest opinion. I only recommend products and brands I love and use personally. 

This past weekend I took part in a mini styling event with Pier 1, where I styled not only this hot cocoa bar but a Christmas tree three ways! It was a great event and I had so much fun! If you are local to Las Colinas Texas, I would love for you to stop by one of my styling events. I may have another one this month, but I know for sure I will have one in December! I will keep you posted!

Now, let's start styling your hot cocoa bar!

  • You will need some sort of table or counter to display your hot cocoa bar. I chose this buffet table and layered it with a classic red buffalo check table runner. I pulled out the drawers, lined them with the tartan plaid placemats and placed the mugs and thermal cups inside. This gave me more table top space for my condiments and hot cocoa necessities!
  • Add some festive decor such as mini Christmas trees, reindeer, candles, signage and Christmas ornaments, to pull the look together! 

I am loving how it's turning out so far! It gives me all the cold weather winter feelings! Like snuggling in front of the fireplace!

  • Include some type of stirrer, whether it be spoons, stir sticks or festive these paper straws. I placed them in this fabulous red wagon server to tie it all together! 

  • Adding decorative cup sleeves to your thermal cups make them cheerful and theme ready! You can find these in the shop! They come in two different fonts and backgrounds. 

  • Don't forget your signage! This printable large sign is perfect for your Hot Cocoa Bar, you can purchase it in the shop and it comes as an instant download! 
Now you are ready to invite your friends and family over to enjoy a cup of Hot Cocoa! If you would like to see other Hot Cocoa Bars I have styled click here, here, here and here
