Set up your hot chocolate station displaying the items in order of use. Start with cute mugs, and hot coco, followed by all of the toppings so everyone can easily create their own cup of cheer. 



  • use dishes or jars to hold and display toppings
  • if you have a tiered stand or cake stand, use this to display your mugs and hot chocolate
  • provide individual serving utensils so each person can add their own toppings
  • use a letterboard to display a cute holiday message
