Winter hot cocoa and coffee station

This isn't an advertisement for Eight O'Clock brand coffee. It just happens to be my favorite - and the red single serve cups match my holiday decor. As the weather is getting cooler out, I'm craving something warm in the evening. Whether it's a cup of flavored coffee or a hot chocolate, December is the perfect time for a hot drink. Have you ever thought of creating a festive coffee/hot cocoa bar for the winter months?

It's so easy to find great sources on the web for bringing a little holiday cheer to your coffee station. I found free chalkboard printables here and attached them to my jar of hot chocolate with a red and white ribbon. I filled another glass jar with fun paper straws.

And how about adding a fun framed picture to your coffee station? I picked a free printable from Lily and Val. Valerie McMeehan is the artist behind the site and does incredible chalk art. I love her stuff - and she also is a Pittsburgher like me so I'm a little biased about her! I have never met her but I'm so inspired by her work. She has a blog and an online shop - and you should check them out!

I added some greenery and a few red glittery ornaments as a finishing touch. Use whatever you have on hand or what you enjoy! You can add a bunch of candy canes that can be used to stir your cocoa, or fill a jar with mini marshmallows.

If you are interested in creating your own coffee or cocoa bar for the holiday season, check out my Pinterest board for more fun ideas.
