Hot Chocolate Bar

Every night after bathtime and before bedtime I read to Hailey while she has a drink and snack. During the warmer months she has juice, but in the winter it's always hot cocoa. A couple of years ago I saw this Dear Lillie Hot Chocolate Bar (I thought on Pinterest, but for some reason I didn't get it pinned) and have wanted to create one ever since. This year I am super excited that we were able to make our very own hot cocoa bar! We set up our hot cocoa bar on the breakfast bar in our family room and used items we already had on hand.

Yep, that is a sheet hanging in the background 
(we have gutted our kitchen and are trying to keep the 
dirt and dust to a minimum in the other rooms), 
and the bar counter needs to be replaced, 
and the trim needs to be painted.....

You can see how we used these apothecary jars for 

We posted about our basket and pitcher here, Our Home ~ Autumn 2013.

The pinecone tree we used in our Christmas 2011 decor.
The red Christmas trees, ball ornaments, and pinecones, we used in our Christmas 2012 decor.
And, so far, we have gotten the most use out of the garland during Christmas.
We have used the garland on our mantle for Christmas 2010Christmas 2011, and Christmas 2012.

We are loving our hot cocoa bar!

The hot cocoa bar is set up, the Christmas tree is finished in our sunroom, the dining room is almost ready, and the sideporch is looking festive. We are a little bit closer to Christmas!
