Home Is Where My Story Begins

Hot Cocoa Station

My BFF, Laura at Finding Home, (I may just be stalking her) posted her hot chocolate station last week.  While we have a hot cocoa station set up in the kitchen, mine did not look as cute as Laura’s.  So, I cutesy-fied it!

Hot chocolate, marshmallows, sprinkles, and candy canes make a perfect set up.  I didn’t have a cute antique tray, like my BFF, but I did have a pretty silver platter that my Mother-In-Law gave me.  The Christmas tree mugs were from my Sister-In-Law.

I don’t know about your family, but my kids make hot cocoa just about every day in the winter.  I think a pretty set up, rather than the the plastic containers that these items are sold in, is much more inviting and makes hot cocoa seem like a special tradition.  (Pssst…. the mugs only hold about 6 ounces, rather than the 12 ounce cups they normally use.  Don’t tell the kids!)

Do you have a hot cocoa station in your kitchen?  Send me a picture.  I’d love to see it.


Happy cocoa making!

    Becca, I love your hot cocoa station! I pulled ours together last week; and put the finishing touches on this morning. There are so many great inspirations out in blogland. Yours is great!

    What a cute idea! I love that everything is so handy. And hopefully with snow coming, we can use it more often. I also like having it out already for my guests, not just my family. Thanks for the great pic, too!
