Who loves hot chocolate?
And who loves Valentine's Day?
Well, I sorta do...
But I love the idea of combining the two!
Here in the Midwest it is cooo-old (not like that's unusual - I mean, it is January, but still...) - and it will be for at least another 4 months or so.
So I thought a hot cocoa bar would be a great way to help beat the cold and get a jump on Valentine's Day celebrations!
So I fired up my Minc, grabbed my Marquee Love Chalkboard and a few little other extras and set up a quick and easy party!
Little banners and garlands always make a regular day feel like a party, so I whipped some up using Heidi Swapp's brand new Hello Gorgeous (Memory Planner 2016) paper pad...I love that black pokie paper! Then I wrote the words "hot cocoa" on my chalkboard and turned on those gorgeous lights!
Some red foil and pinwheels add to the whimsical party feel...and I'll be honest - I hadn't used my red foil even once before now and I'm kicking myself for never having tried it before...it's so gorgeous!
I think this little stripey pinwheel is so cute just resting in a mug...
I added this glittered "love" (from Jen Hadfield's DIY Home Collection for Pebbles Inc./American Crafts) to my little cookie display...I stinking adore this...
A few bowls of goodies (marshmallows, chocolate chips, white chocolate chips & mint chocolate candies) and done. Seriously, this little set up took less than 30 minutes and the kids loved it! Aw, heck - let's be honest, I loved it...
How are you going to be celebrating Valentine's Day? I'd love to hear what special touches will be adorning your party table!
