Holiday Hot Chocolate Party
I am hosting a holiday party this December and I have been trying to come up with some fun, unique ideas surrounding a holiday party so that (hopefully) guests will feel like it is fresh and fun. I decided to combine some of my favorite things around this season and I came up with hot chocolate and peppermint. I also wanted love red and white and so thought why not combine all four and do a themed Holiday Hot Chocolate Party?
I started with our Hot Chocolate Holiday Invitation, adjusted the colors and started looking for ideas and inspiration that would work around the cocoa and peppermint theme. I found some fantastic food, favor and decor ideas outlined below.
The hot chocolate mugs tied with gingham checked ribbon and candy canes is such a cute way to set up a buffet table and I love the containers of hot cocoa flavorings your guests can add to their drink. You could even add other items such as flavored chocolate chips, mini marshmallow or little chocolate dipped gingerbread cookies.
The cocoa-on-a-stick favor is truly ingenious. The stick is created with a decadent chocolate layer topped with homemade marshmallow.You literally place the stick in warm milk and stir until you have hot cocoa. Guest will love this little take home sweet.
I also loved decor items you could do around this theme. Candle pillars wrapped in peppermint sticks add some great dimension and color to the candles. The Marshmallow Christmas wreath is a welcome treat for guests entering your home for the party and I loved these candy cane Christmas trees for accents.
I hope you find some inspiration with some of these ideas and have a Happy Holiday!
