A Festive Hot Cocoa Bar!

Tis the season! We love our traditions around here and one that we always enjoy is a hot cocoa bar! Sometimes I go all out, sometimes it just means fun mugs but generally we have at least one occasion (often our Christmas Eve party) where we pull out all the stops. This year, I shopped World Market to make it happen! Keep reading for tips on how to create your own festive, colorful, and delicious Hot Cocoa Bar!
Tip 1: Offer a Variety of Hot Cocoa! Oftentimes I'll put it in a pretty jar but these beautiful glass jars saved me a step!

Tip 2: Keep it warm with a thermos but make it cute! Such a good price for this cute thermos and I can vouch that it keeps water hot for hours!

Tip 3: Create a festive background. Your space is probably already decorated for the holidays so this one should be easy! I added a fun kid-friendly wreath and light up trees to level up.

Tip 4: Goodies and toppings are a must. Sure you could just use tiny marshmallows but add some fun stirrers (and these!), marshmallow toppers, and not pictured- whipped cream! World Market sells so many treats that are high quality, delicious, and also look pretty. Bonus tip- use clear dishes to hold your toppings so they serve as decor. These mugs fit the bill!

Tip 5: Obviously use cute mugs. World Market has so many adorable options. The set I chose (below) is metal enamel so make sure the beverage isn't too hot. I love its vintage vibe!

Tip 6: Lastly, put everything in one space- the food creates the tablescape! I added this stunner for some extra cuteness.
