Hot chocolate station

This is a new Christmas tradition for us. Usually we treat ourselves to a hot chocolate with all the trimmings at the Christmas Market but this year it’s cancelled (like everything else) and so I decided to be a little bit ‘extra’ and create this little space for Arlo.

The sign itself was made using a design bundles SVG. I’ve added adhesive vinyl to the glass pane and then popped a sheet of felt inside the glass. This design can be downloaded and printed too. It really does add a festive pop to the kitchen which is normally too functional but there’s no rules in 2020 anymore.

This hot chocolate station was fairly simple to put together – with the tray and the elf cup from Home Bargains, and the glass jars from Ikea. I added vinyl decals to label them up and then filled everything with treats and “bobs your uncle” as the saying goes.

This entire set up cost me less than £20 to put together and I’ve paid £3.50 for a single mug before – I already had cocoa and sugar and just added a bit of each to these jars which I can top up as we go – I think this will keep us going until Christmas.
