Hot Cocoa Bar Ideas

This weekend is the holiday party that I’m styling! It’s for 55-60 people and we have it all ready to go, I’m SO excited! At the end of the evening I plan to have a hot cocoa bar with cookies to take home for all the guests. I thought it was a nice touch to end the night. So obviously I’ve been obsessively pinning some great hot cocoa bar ideas on Pinterest and I thought I’d share with you a roundup of great hot cocoa bar ideas if that’s something you’re doing for your holiday party this year!
