Hot Chocolate Station
Yummy Hot Chocolate & Whipped Cream
Set up a table where guests can assemble their own personal hot chocolate.
Set out different ingredients like whipped cream, cinnamon, peppermints, marshmallows, candy canes, etc. Then, set out the hot chocolate packets with hot water and guests can make their own hot chocolate. Be sure to regularly heat up the water so it won't sit and get cold.
You can also turn your little station into a gourmet hot chocolate station. Instead of regular hot chocolate packets, purchase some gourmet packets of hot chocolate in different flavors. Guests can enjoy choosing a gourmet flavor to try while warming up with this delicious treat.
To make your hot chocolate station look festive, place beautiful Christmas themed mugs on the table so guests can enjoy sipping the hot cocoa from a beautiful, festive mug. These mugs are easy to find online or at your local dollar store. You can set out some name tags and markers so guests can stick their name on the mug so no one will get confused and grab the wrong mug of hot chocolate.
Beautiful, gourmet marshmallows can add something special to your hot chocolate station as well. Instead of putting out plain marshmallows, consider making some gourmet one that will look and taste wonderful. Find a marshmallow recipe and make up a couple batches of marshmallows. Have fun decorating them with sprinkles in Christmas colors, which will make them stand out, adding something unique to the station.
Keep the hot chocolate idea going by using this idea for party favors. Place hot chocolate fixings, including hot chocolate mix, marshmallows and candy canes, in a beautifully decorated gift bag. You can even add a nice mug to the bag. Then, simply hand out the small gift bags to guests at the end of the night as fun party favors They're sure to use them throughout the season and they'll fondly think of your fun Christmas birthday party when they do.
