Hot Chocolate Bar - A Charming Way to Warm Up

I'm getting ready for another party at Sweet Bee Cottage.

My elementary school staff Christmas party is going to be at our house.  Oh boy!!!

So....while I was enjoying my lunch at school today that silly bee buzzed in and gave me the idea to have a hot chocolate bar at our party.  So of course, I had to start pinning ideas.  
(Doesn't everybody do that?)
 Love the lace table runner on that dark counter and of course, I'm totally drawn to the galvanized metal tray thingie.
Great ideas for toppings here and they're just in plastic cups with labels.  Too cute!  (Hello, my name is Sweet Bee and I'm addicted to labels. Especially cute labels!)

 Do you see the blue glass cake stand?  Yeah, you know that's why I pinned this one!  The snowflakes are pretty cute too.
 I think this one has every topping you can imagine.  Can you see the Peeps snowmen in the one apothecary jar?  Toooooooo cute!
 More deliciousness in jars and that aqua pop is cute too.
 And then maybe I could have Baby Bee open up her own little hot chocolate stand.  Would you stop and buy a scrumptious hot chocolate from my cutie?
And more aqua and red for Christmas!  Love it!  This is a printable set you can buy.

Well, I did pick up a little something to put all my Christmas mugs on for our party.....
Luckily it's much bigger than this picture!  
Thank you World Market once again. 

I'm really, really, really lovin' all the delights I've been finding at World Market!  Did you know Bed, Bath and Beyond bought them a few months ago?  

Well, I'd love to know what you would want to put in your hot chocolate!
  Any suggestions?
You can visit my Pinterest board "Let's Have a Party" for links to these ideas and more!


  1. What a great idea!! Can I come? I used to teach Kindergarten :)

  2. Love this - and all the clever ideas! I didn't know BB&B had bought World Market - wonder if we can use those coupons there now too? Just hope they both continue in business for a long time!

  3. I think a hot chocolate bar sounds like a perfect Christmas party idea! I love the pins you found, and they're inspiring my own "Cookies & Cocoa" party we have every year! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Have fun with it, and I'm sure everyone will enjoy it so!

  4. I just happened to be eating a hershey kiss with caramel..that silly thing "accidentally" fell into my steaming cup and someething wonderful happened. I highly recommend it.
    blessings to you.

  5. Love this idea! Would be great for a neighborhood get together too!

  6. What a GREAT idea. This time of year Wal-Mart will have marshmallows shaped like gingerbread men and taste like them too. My husband loves them in his hot chocolate. Thank you so much for your sweet comment. I was all better when the fabric got here. lol.

  7. Your hospitality will be a Christmas memory for sure. I love all your ideas, your enthusiasm, and the spirit of Christmas that will be in your home. Show us pics of it please!


Thank you for buzzing by and taking time to leave me a little note. I always enjoy hearing from my friends.
