Part 2 of our Christmas Collection post is all about hot cocoa stations and kids table. You can find Part 1 HERE. These have really become the trend this fall and winter in holiday entertaining. I created this table low enough for the little ones to get at themselves (caution: do not make the cocoa so hot that little fingers get burned!).
But just in case, I also made little tags that say Hot, Hot, Hot tied to the handles using twine.
This hot cocoa is actually peppermint hot cocoa that I found in my local grocery store and goes with the theme of peppermint flavored sweets and drinks for this party. Baby Boy Bakery made these homemade marshmallows on these peppermint sticks to use as stir sticks. So yummy and the kids can even eat the marshmallows right off the stick too.I just lined the platter with a coordinating patterned paper offered in our Christmas Wish Party Package.
Finished with a cut little tent card to let little guests know what’s in store for them and a apothecary jar filled to the brim (and toed with a ribbon!) full of red mini Christmas ornaments found at Ikea. Super simple and easy!
Though I dont know about you but I would not trust my good china with my daughter. So why not set a traditional kids table. They are not what they used to be. I always felt like I was banned from the big table! This can be a very special place for them.
Set with their very own place mat (so they know where their plate belongs rather than on the floor!Haha!!) and a very special little gift just for them left on their plate to find. These coordinating place mats can be found in our party collection HERE.
Unbreakable cups (these from Pottery Barn Kids) as well as the same gold silver used on the “grown up” table, truly make it festive, sweet, and coordinate with the overall theme.
Hope we are giving you some fun ideas to create a memorable family dinner for at the end of the week!! Still more to come . . .You may find all our Christmas collections HERE!!Thank you to Nicole Benitez Photography for the amazing photos!
