For Day 7 of the 12 Days of Christmas, I have a very special treat for you – the start of the 2016 Holiday Party Hop!
So what is the Holiday Party Hop? A group of some of my favorite party gals have gathered to share our very best holiday entertaining ideas. And, you can hop from party site to party site, seeing all of the party ideas! I’m getting the party started today with a fun twist on the Hot Cocoa Bar with some great, interesting hot cocoa flavors.
You can click through all of today’s Holiday Parties, you can start here and take the tour, one by one!
Instead of the typical Hot Cocoa Bar with just marshmallows, chocolate chips and peppermints, I decide to build one around some special flavors. You can encourage guests to make one of the four flavor choices or get creative and create their own.
On our Hot Cocoa Bar, I set up four separate flavor stations, along with the recipes for each flavor. The table includes all the ingredients to make Peppermint Hot Cocoa, Spicy Hot Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie Hot Cocoa and my personal favorite, Coffee Hot Cocoa. I grouped the ingredients together in separate areas on the bar.
I also added some fun, seasonal Christmas items to the table, too. It was first covered with a plaid table runner. A little mini tree, nutcracker, wooden sled and red ornaments were used o the tree.
Our Baby It’s Cold Outside 11×14″ Art Print and ceramic deer head were hung above the table. I love that both of these items can be used in the winter, after Christmas.
You can set up this party while your friends and family are out caroling or looking at Christmas light. Heat up your milk and it will be ready to warm them up when they return!
