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
Marshmallows
I will link to:

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.
Blessings,

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!!!

Hot Chocolate is always so inviting, and especially so when it's in as lovely a setting as this! Merry Christmas!

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
