How To Create A Pretty Cocoa And Donut Bar


The magic of the season has begun and I’m all in! I love all the things and finding fun ways to celebrate even the little days. I put together this fun hot chocolate/donut bar that would be fun for any occasion. You could set this up for a tree decorating party, cookie exchange or even Christmas Eve or morning. It’s super simple and so fun….


I’ve been wanting to put together a fun hot chocolate bar for a while and found so many fun things at JCPenney I couldn’t resist.  Here is how it all came together.


Tip 1

Find fun serving pieces to elevate and create a cute vignette. For this look I used a 2 tiered Christmas tree stand and a wood sleigh serving tray. I also used cute jars to add the hot chocolate and toppings.







Tip 2

Add festive mugs, napkins and plates. I found these super cute snowman mugs and winter scene accent plates that are perfect for serving desserts and cocoa. The Christmas tree napkins and jingle bell napkin rings add the perfect touch of whimsey.






Tip 3

Serve fun food and delicious treats. I made homemade donuts and cookie spoons with these baking sheets. They were so easy to make. How fun is that to stir your hot chocolate with a cookie spoon (and tasty!) You could also put various toppings and sprinkles for people to decorate their donuts as well.



Tip 4

Finally, add touches of greenery and festive stems to decorate and give that holiday vibe. 



Isn’t this just so fun and yummy looking? And, it didn’t take much time to set up with all the cute items, it almost creates itself, lol!
