It has begun. Last week I started decking the halls and easing into all things Christmas. I realize this may be early for many of you, but Canadian Thanksgiving has come and gone, and I love to decorate early, leaving me time to relax and enjoy the season.
I won't show you all my Christmas decor quite yet. I have plenty of fun festive projects to share and a great giveaway coming up just in time for gift giving season.
Today I want to show you our hot chocolate bar. While this is part of what I decorated for Christmas, it is really a great idea for the cooler months and will likely stay up all winter.
My inspiration was this gorgeous post from Dear Lillie.
Here is my interpretation:
Vintage silver, fresh cedar boughs and just a touch of Christmas bling.
I mostly used glass canisters I had already, and a few new ones from Home Sense.
I labelled them with cute Martha Stewart labels from Michael's.
Bells and ribbons adorn the canisters, and sweet napkins are there for use.
I put the hot chocolate bar on the antique buffet in the dining room.
Marshmallows, chocolate chips, raw sugar, white sugar and hot cocoa are in these canisters.
My grandmothers silver spoons for stirring, or cinnamon sticks, if you prefer.
Hot apple cider packs and a variety of flavored syrups and sugars sit on the vintage silver tray.
