Hot Beverage Station
Last year’s hot chocolate station was such a hit with my kids that I knew I had to do it again this year.
It’s more of a hot beverage station, really. This family loves their hot beverages once the weather turns cold.
My husband is an espresso/cappuccino fan. Chai Tea Lattes are my drink of choice. Josh is a HOT-CHOC-AHOLIC! Hannah likes hot apple cider and coffee. And Jake loves it all.
The Keurig and Tassimo machines (we have both because Jim likes the Tassimo coffees better but I like the Chai Tea for Keurig better) are sitting on a tray because it makes it easier to pull them out to refill the water. And I think that things grouped onto a tray always look neat and tidy.
I keep all of the K-cups and T-Discs in the teeny tiny drawers meant for waxed paper, aluminum foil, and plastic wrap.
Out of sight, but easily accessible!
The hot chocolate mix, marshmallows, and pirouettes are in very inexpensive IKEA jars. Last year’s jars were pretty, but too dainty for the daily abuse.
The cute red vintage flatware caddy was a Junk Warehouse find.
I added some red ticking fabric on the drawer bottoms and also a green scripty knob to the front.
It houses a variety of Starbucks pre-packaged hot chocolate mixes, stirs, spoons, nutmeg, cinnamon and sprinkles!
I’m not rushing the season, but I’m sneaking some green and red in here and there!
Just a little reminder…tomorrow is the last day to enter this:
Get busy, peeps!
