My Hot Chocolate Station...


I have been loving seeing everyones cute candy stations, treat stations... hot chocolate stations and all...  so much so that I decided to set up a hot chocolate station of my own today!...  every night when Jack and I sit down to relax and maybe watch a movie or something, I fix us a nice, relaxing cup of hot chocolate...  how fun to gather all my necessities and put them in one place!...


I rounded up my Christmas mugs and cups...  measuring spoons and such...  hot chocolate of course...  candy canes for swizzle sticks...  a little jar with a lid holds mini marshmallows waiting to toss in...  yum!...


Must have some yummy chocolate candy to go along with our drinks...

 
I placed it all in a corner on my counter...


And also on my wooden plate drying rack...


Love how it all came together...


Can't wait till tonight for my special treat!...



What could be better on a foggy and cold winters night...  xoxo...  Julie Marie

Hi Julie Marie - Absolutely love your hot chocolate station and had fun putting one together to enjoy when my children and grandchildren drop by. Then to make gifts for some friends, I ran to Michaels, bought some shoe box size lined baskets, added Christmas mugs, Swiss Miss Chocolate, a jar of tiny marshmallows (loved that idea), a pretty tea towel, and candy canes. Such a fun gift to put together. Thank you for the inspiration, and I will certainly credit you with the idea when I give my gifts. Holiday Hugs from Minnesota, Ruthie
