Hot Cocoa Bar - Have a Cup of Cheer!

Hot Cocoa Bar - Have a Cup of Cheer!

I am not a cold weather girl.  As soon as the temps even come close to dipping below 50 degrees, gimme cozy blankets, fires in the fireplace, and hot cocoa...lots of it!  

When I saw these sweater mugs and buffalo plaid to-go cups from Oriental Trading, I thought they'd be great for setting up a Hot Cocoa Bar that could last all through the cold weather season.   

I love the idea, cuz no matter what you've got going on, hot cocoa is always at the ready! 

If you're staying in, grab a sweater mug and cozy up.  If you're heading out, grab a cute disposable cup for the road.  Perfect, right?
