Hot Cocoa Anyone?
Today I hope you will join me at the hot cocoa bar, while it has become quite cold outside in my neck of the woods. We might have a snow fall today which will look lovely framing the Christmas decorations Prince Charming decked out our house.

An antique cigar box (my grandpa smoked cigars) lined with a crisp white snowflake napkin hold a souvenir mug from the Walnut Room at Macy's. My grandma would take me there when I was a little girl. I still go during the holidays to carry on the tradition.
This hot cocoa bar has traditions and memories as its theme. The character mugs were another find of my grandma's which I continued. She gave each of us them when we were young. We had six and one survived our generation. Giving everyone of her great-grandchildren them for Christmas presents on year.
The chalkboard was left in my stash of crafts from another project. The milk glass from Westmoreland is a nod to my mom. Chocolate Kisses sit on the center of my parents house with a supply that is never ending.
The I love snow dish is the outside of a dip chiller set.
My first attempt at Chalkboard writing didn't turn out to bad. Metal tea light houses sit on the bottom shelf of the Ikea Hack into a bar cart.
Follow the pictures, shop your house, off to the grocery store and your hot cocoa bar will be a hit in your home too. Love it, Inspired, 💖 Pinnable Image is below.
Question of the day- Do you like mint in your hot chocolate?
