How to Style a Hot Chocolate Station and Winter Tea Party

By: Cami ArcherHC7

With all the snow we are getting in Utah a hot chocolate station is a fun way to warm up especially after skiing, sledding, and general winter merry-making.   It’s not too difficult to put together- just make sure you have fun with it!

Start with grabbing cute mugs from your cupboard or local store.  I got these at Wal-Mart and Target.


As for the “fixings” I put hot chocolate, marshmallows, straws, and candy sticks in different sizes of glass jars. 


A stylish way to display your winter/Holiday mugs and make them easy to grab is to use a glass holder.  I found at this one at World Market.


Adding a few extra touches can make all the difference to make even a smaller moment in your home something memorable.  I used some of my Holiday decorations- our gingerbread houses, miniature Christmas trees, and a chalkboard sign.

What better way is there to hold off the post-Holiday blues than to have a holiday tea party? Have them grab their furry friends and dolls to come for a good time.  I try to use everything I use for the hot chocolate station as a base for the tea party.  A ‘Hot Chocolate Party’ doesn’t roll off the tongue.  The additional materials I brought in were place mats the kids made, a tea pot, dishes, and plate full of leftover Holiday treats.

To add an extra touch of fun grab some fun children’s books and read while they enjoy their treats. With winter in its throws I went full snowman with snowman books and a couple stuffed Olafs.  It was a ton of fun and with most of the work done with the hot chocolate station it was fairly low stress on the mom scale.
