Yesterday I told you a little bit about our Christmas party that we had over the weekend. This year we decided to have a hot chocolate themed party. I have lots of pictures to share with you and even free printables you can download if you have the urge to throw a seriously sweet party. Cold weather is here to stay, what better an excuse to grab a few friends and sip on something sweet that is sure to warm you up from your toes to your nose!
For our party we sent out these invites in the mail a few weeks ahead of time so our friends could be sure to mark the date on their calendars. Jake and I purchased some plain white mugs from Home Goods for really cheap (just over one dollar per mug) and decorated each one differently with a Pebeo Porcelain Pen. When our guests arrived they picked the mug design they liked best, used it for their cocoa throughout the night and then took it home as our gift to them. They were a big hit with everyone, plus they were really fun and easy to make!
We stocked the hot chocolate bar with candy canes, marshmallows, chocolate filled wafers, and vanilla syrup. We also served frosted sugar cookies and pretzels to add a touch of salt to all the sweet. We also sent our guests home with an additional hot chocolate on a stick, wrapped and taged, ready for the next time they're in need of something warm to drink.
I've decided I really like throwing parties. Not only do we get to spend time with our friends, but it gives me an excuse to design some cute stuff that I can share with my friends and all of you. You can download and print any of the artwork I designed for our party by clicking on the links below.
