1.  Chalkboard Sign Backdrop

Chalkboard signs are so on trend right now, and this cocoa station at Pen ‘n Paper Flowers took full advantage of that.  

Along with the fun framed chalkboard sign, check out the darling details of this station, like the wooden scoops and snow-drifted cake stand.

2. Printable Tags

Love the chalkboard motif?  Yellow Bliss Road created these adorable printable chalkboard tags for a hot chocolate bar.

3. Hot Chocolate on the Porch

Not only is this cocoa station at Celebrating Everyday Life beautifully styled, it has a creative twist on this theme: instead of being indoors, it’s outside!

I think that’s a great idea if you are hosting a houseful for the holidays, or if there’s a weekend in your neighborhood when everyone is outside decorating their yards for Christmas.

4.  Celebrate the New Year

What do you think?  Is a hot cocoa bar something you would like to have at your next holiday gathering?
