Quick and Easy Holiday Hot Cocoa Bar Cart

Bar carts are bang on trend right now, and I just can't get enough of them! They're perfect for so many occasions and events, and for the Christmas Holidays I love the idea of a Hot Cocoa Bar Cart. So I styled this quick one over the weekend using some of  Bird's Party Hot Cocoa Bar printables

Quick and Easy Holiday Hot Cocoa Bar Cart

Since I do not actually own a proper bar cart (yet)...I re-purposed my kitchen veg cart for the occasion - It's the perfect size, has wheels so it can be moved around easily, and just happens to be pretty shiny and red. What could be more festive?! :)

This cart styling only took me one morning to put together (without any previous planning..), so it's totally do-able last minute.  But whatever the occasion, I suggest prepping and setting out the cart the day before at least, so you have plenty of time to 'set the stage' and make the hot cocoa mix and other treats (recipes coming later in the week).

Sweet treats included chocolate and salted caramel macarons, chocolate covered marshmallows, chocolate covered pretzel sticks (used a stirrers) as well as usual sides and topping for hot cocoa like cinnamon, chocolate chips, vanilla-flavored sweet cream, syrup, and yummy almond praline. Note these are all matching in' hues of brown'? It's no accident - I chose treats that complement the colors of the cart styling, but that also taste delicious when paired with a mug of steaming hot cocoa! ;)

For the buffet labels, I simply used double-sided tape to stick them directly to the handles of the wooden spoons, and hung the larger labels with twine onto the pitchers.

My trusty cocoa jug, pitchers and other white bowls are all from flea market finds. They are all different styles and textures, but kept white to harmonize the look and tone down the bright red of the cart.
