Creating Hot Chocolate Stations

I’ve always had a coffee station, but creating a hot chocolate station is new to me. I imagine it would be a fun idea for kids and parties and such. A child’s birthday party in winter would be a great time for this type of thing.

Hot Chocolate Station Ideas:


Can’t you just imagine the delight on a child’s face when they spot a hot chocolate bar at a friend’s house?

I hear they’re all the rage at weddings these days.

One For The Adults:

This one looks mighty snazzy all decked out in gold. I can see this hot chocolate station at a New Year’s Eve party for adults.
Kevin And Amanda sure found some adorable mugs for their hot chocolate station.

Outdoor Hot Chocolate Station:

This one by Stephanie Lynn (Under The Table And Dreaming) is outdoors. It would be a wonderful place to enjoy a mug of hot chocolate to warm up.

Styling A Hot Chocolate Station:

Infarrantly Creatively shows you how to style one of these hot chocolate stations. There are so many creative ideas. I’ve seen a good many of them on Pinterest.
Take a gander at this one by The Crazy Craft Lady. This hot chocolate station has more of a farmhouse theme.
This lady is all ready to serve her guests in style.
I have had a coffee station for years in whatever home I lived in. But I’ve never had a hot chocolate station. This concept of having special areas for both home and entertaining has gained lots of popularity in the last decade.
I can see how this would be a great theme for a birthday party for a child. Also a candy station, possibly a cupcake station, etc.
Would you consider one of these hot chocolate stations for your next gathering?

  1. Brenda, I've pinned your whole post today to my Pinterest board! LOVE LOVE It! so many great ideas – I can't wait to get started to incorporate some of these ideas before my kids get here for Christmas! Thank you for sharing your blog with us. May you feel God's peace and joy this season and in the coming year!

  2. This has given me the idea to kind of make a hot chocolate bar as a gift. I have some snowman mugs to give my sister. I think I will add some marshmallows and other items along with the mugs.

  3. Looking at all these pictures makes me want to add a hot chocolate bar to my kitchen! I do have some jars filled with marshmallows and hot chocolate tied with red and white twine, but that's about it. I don't have the cute labels and all the other stuff to go with it. Thanks for sharing all of this great inspiration.

  4. I love all of the Hot Cocoa Stations I see, but I don't need to have treats out in front of me all the time.

    Our son and his fiancee are not having a cake at their wedding. Instead, they are doing a McConnell's Ice Cream Bar. McConnell's is a Santa Barbara ice cream company and it is heads above any other ice cream we taste. I love that they are not doing a "cookie cutter" wedding.

  5. I love Kevin and Amanda's mugs! They give me an idea to pull out my Made in Japan chipmunk mugs and pitcher to use in a hot chocolate bar. This could even be great for a cold January day, couldn't it? When I'll need the warmth and cheer of your pictures above. Thanks!

  6. Brenda-those are all such cute ideas. I need to do this for the kids when they come to visit. Hope you are having a great week, Brenda. xo Diana

  7. I set up a hot chocolate station this year, but mine is not nearly as cute as these! I have it beside my Keurig with hot cocoa mix, peppermint, marshmallows and chocolate spoons in Mason jars. We have really enjoyed it. The chocolate spoons were a project I did with my granddaughters. They really got into that!
