Over the last couple of years it has become a trend to have a cute little coffee station in your home. A little more than just the pot and a sugar bowl. I created one of these cute little stations in our new home and then when the holidays hit this year I noticed everyone was converting these to hot cocoa stations. Well, you guessed it, I joined the band wagon. Living in Florida we don’t consume tons of cocoa, but we were holding a party so I figured it would be a fun addition and a great alcoholic choice for our guests. Because we have a Keurig I decided the easiest thing to do would be to get the cocoa K-cups that way guests to make cups as they please. They are more expensive, buy we’re paying for convince here. We also set the station up with a jar of mini marshmallows and candy canes for stirring. As you can see from the photo I keep my coffee K-cups in a drawer under the brewer so I added a vintage strainer for the cocoa k-cups as a way to highlight them. . On my coffee/cocoa cart I keep a stack of all-season mugs and a tray of additional mugs below. If you were expecting a large group you could also purchase disposable cups.
I did not do another other decorating of this space as I plan to keep it up after Christmas and therefore want it to be just a seasonal station but a cute print or framed art would look great about this area or even a little banner.
My cart is a vintage Cosco cart which is in dire need of refinishing. The mustache mugs (similar) were a gift from my sister a few years ago. Because this is also a coffee station I have sugar and my homemade coffee creamer available as well. The mugs on the tray are part of a dish ware set by Oneida which is no longer available. A similar set is available at Kohls.
Do you have a coffee or cocoa station in your home? How do you set it up for the holidays?
