I am so excited to share with you this fun little project! Hot chocolate is a big hit around here during the winter time so I took a shelf in my dining room and converted it to a little hot chocolate bar. It’s a perfect place to self serve a cup of warm deliciousness during the cooler months of the year. No matter what climate you live in, you can’t go wrpong by setting up one of these stations! Also, it’s a perfect addition to keep after Christmas is over since Winter extends a few more months!
I began by purchasing three small mason jar canisters (for marshmallows and dinner mints), a small salt shaker (for sprinkles), and hot chocolate packets from my local Dollar Tree. Then, I added jumbo pastel marshmallows, tiny marshmallows, and dinner mints to each small mason jar. I picked up the straws, chalkboard labels and the marshmallows from our 99 Cent Store. Then I added a label to each jar and put the sprinkles in the salt shaker. The final touches included a chalkboard sign and pen ($3 each at Hobby Lobby) and little espresso cups from Walmart. Such an easy project and we’ve been using it for a month now!
I wore a lovely sweater dress I picked up a few years ago on Amazon. Orginally, I thought it would be fun for a Tacky Christmas Sweater party, but ended up not tacky enough so I opted to wear it Christmas Day. Fast forward to this year it’s become a cozy go to item for days around the home, but can also be easily dressed up with a pair of boots or simple nude pumps.
