Hot Chocolate Station

If snow is in your forecast for Christmas, your plans may also include sledding with the kiddos over Christmas break.  Here I have set up a hot chocolate station for a break when the sledding gets too cold.

  I have a tea cozy made of wool over my teapot.

I was going to do a Christmas table with this Christmas pattern of British Castles by Johnson Brothers but, I saw these dishes on many tables this month so I decided to do this instead.

The food on my table includes:
Nonnie's Biscotti
Land O' Lakes individual flavored hot chocolates
Ashby's Christmas Spice tea (it is cranberry orange flavored)
Spearmint sticks
Strawberry sticks
Cinnamon sticks

That is fabulous Sherry. My boys love hot chocolate!

There is nothing like hot cocoa/chocolate on a cold winter day -- and I'm a marshmallow girl -- that's the only reason for hot chocolate!

Very nice. I like this idea and would like to do this in my kitchen somewhere. You have a beautiful table set and ready for company.

Thank You!

I'm crazy about that teapot cozy! I noticed it right away. Then, to have it set on that sled, it was just perfect. Love this whole table and especially the idea of a hot chocolate party.

Merry Christmas!!

What a warm and inviting station with so many goodies. I want to be there too. I adore your tea cozy, it looks like a gorgeous wool hat that someone took off when they came in from the cold. Such a fun combination of treats. I am going to have to try this. We have a cabin and always have hot cocoa and whipped cream but I haven't done nearly enough. Have a marvelous Christmas.

I love hot chocolate even in the warmer months, so I think your little set up is a great idea. Love the tea cozy. Never seen one that looks like a sweater, but yours is too cute! Hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

Makes me want hot chocolate right now! There's a rain/snow mix going on outside, and it's the perfect remedy for the have-to-stay-inside blues! Have a Happy Christmas!!!

What a great idea! I'm going to be starting a new tradition next year of hosting my husband's family for Christmas Eve Brunch. I am putting this with my ideas. Thanks for sharing!!

The tea cozy is precious! Looks like a ski sweater for a tea pot! Always love the British Pink Castles, and they are wonderful for your chocolate station. Thank you for sharing your charming design. Happy New Year! Cherry Kay
