hot cocoa sipping is my fave

November 15, 2011

For some fall party sustenance, fill up vintage thermoses (I scored all mine at thrift stores) with various kinds of hot cocoa and have guests sip their favorites from mis-matched mugs. You could even take a poll at the end to decide which one landed the highest on the delicious scale. Don’t forget to set out some easy snacks to munch on like mini doughnuts and trail mix only available to those wearing plaid of course.

    This is awesome! And all those Thermoses — would make me feel like I was in elementary school again. Remember how they used to come included in lunch boxes?

    Hot cocoa sipping is my fav too! Actually, I love peppermint hot chocolate, for the record. Your collection of mugs and thermoses is fantastic.

    One of our favorite things to do in the winter is make some coffee or hot chocolate and just take drives in the evening since it gets dark so early. And now you’ve got me wondering how I EVER did this without a cute thermos. Adding to my “must get” list immediately.

    What do i have to do to be invited to your parties? Or at least the staging of theirs photos? That tray of donuts is just too much. I might have to abandon all my plans and go hunt some down.

    Nuts (especially almonds) and popcorn together = my favorite.

    I just learned that you live in Denver! How exciting. I am in Highlands Ranch, and we just recently started trying to gather local Colorado bloggers for events like crafting nights, Ikea shopping, etc. We would love to get you involved if you’re interested!

    Do your friends know how lucky they are to know you? Because if they don’t…. why I oughta… I don’t know.

    Donuts! You give them donuts! I can’t remember the last time a friend gave me a donut. Those cheap bastards.

    Between this and your post on hot chocolate on a stick, you have sent me on an epic quest to find the best hot chocolate recipe. I want to make drinking chocolate, but it seems like a lot of work and when a hot chocolate craving hits, I don’t know if I can be bothered. This looks all kinds of fun and festive.
