Transform your home into a winter wonderland by creating a festive and inviting space where friends and family can gather around, sipping on deliciously crafted hot cocoa concoctions.

It takes minimal time and effort! Let’s get to it, shall we?
Choose the Perfect Cart
The foundation of a great Hot Cocoa Bar is, of course, the cart itself. Whether you have a dedicated bar cart or repurpose a rolling kitchen island, aim to complement your holiday decor. PRO TIP: Opt for carts with metallic finishes like gold or silver for that extra touch of elegance. Shop a few in-stock options by clicking on the images below.
Set the Scene with Festive Decor
Adorn your Hot Cocoa Bar Cart with themed accessories that capture the Christmas spirit. Think miniature Christmas trees with different textures, twinkling lights, and seasonal garlands. Don’t be afraid to pull items from your existing Christmas collection. Incorporate traditional hues, or mix it up, and throw in some bright colors to create a visually stunning display. It’s all about coordinating with the other Christmas decor throughout your home. As you can see we chose to stick to the Christmas traditional red and green and ran with it! PRO TIP: Grab wrapped presents from under the tree for an easy filler, or use as a riser to provide varying heights and visual interest.
Christmas Mugs and Glassware
Choose charming mugs or glassware that align with the Christmas theme. This is the perfect opportunity to pull out your fine China or Grandma’s passed-down vintage mugs for everyone to enjoy their favorite hot cocoa creations. Have kids in the mix? Personalize your bar cart with custom designed Styrofoam cups for your party. These are always a hit!
Hot Cocoa Essentials & Toppings
Stock your cart with a variety of hot cocoa essentials. Include a selection of hot chocolate mixes, marshmallows, candy canes, and even a selection of sprinkles to allow your guests to customize their hot cocoa to their liking. For an adult twist, add a selection of flavored liqueurs like peppermint schnapps or Baileys.
Yes, we have in fact thought of everything, my friends. Keep your hot cocoa hot by incorporating a thermal carafe or a small electric kettle on the cart. This ensures that your guests can enjoy a warm and comforting cup of cocoa throughout the festivities.
Seasonal Print Outs
Unless you’re new around here, you know we love to incorporate a fun holiday printable into our bar cart designs. This is probably the easiest way to continuously update your cart for all the holidays and seasons throughout the year! We usually find our printables on Etsy or Canva.
With a thoughtfully styled Hot Cocoa Bar Cart, you’ll be spreading joy and warmth throughout your home this holiday season. The combination of festive decor, delicious hot cocoa essentials, and personalized touches will undoubtedly make your Christmas celebrations memorable. So, gather your loved ones, create a cozy corner, and let the festivities begin! Cheers to a season filled with warmth, laughter, and the perfect cup of hot cocoa.
