Are you all getting a jump start on your Christmas decorating? Or are you more of a “wait until after the last pie is eaten” type of December decorator? I love to slowly start my Christmas decor in November. November is quickly becoming one of my favorite months. As much as I love December, it definitely brings a certain madness along with it. November feels a bit like the calm before the storm. A month to start anticipating and getting excited about cozy nights curled up by the tree lights. I love turning on Christmas music and starting to pull out the holiday decorations – taking my time – moving things around until I’ve found just the right place for everything. I don’t know how much holiday decorating I’ll do this year. Definitely some, but it’s a bit tricky since we are lacking so much furniture! I need table tops to decorate. :) One thing that is definitely on my decor to-do list for this holiday season is to set up a hot chocolate station. My girls and I love hot chocolate and a little place set up solely for hot chocolate fixings sounds so inviting and fun for this time of year! I’ve been pinning hot chocolate station ideas on my Christmas Pinterest Board for the past two years and can’t wait to create my own pulling inspiration from the pictures below…
Aren’t they so fun!? A hot chocolate station just seems to say “welcome! come in and get cozy!”
Don’t mind if I do. :)
I also stumbled on this adorable hot chocolate gift idea.
Such a festive gift if you’re in the mood to make something for friends/loved ones this year.
The one and only glitch in my plans to set up a hot chocolate station?
I took these pics yesterday. Not exactly “baby it’s cold outside” weather around here.
Hot chocolate with your sunscreen anyone?

Thats what Air Conditioning is for you have to just crank it really low in the house and get everyone in the mood! :)
Your Christmas lead up looks just like ours here in Queensland, Australia :) Santa here wears boardies and thongs!! (or flip flops)
that is AWESOME!
Too funny! Well, since it decided to be a brisk 30 something this morning I will take the hot chocolate! LOL
I think a hot chocolate station is a great idea! Even if you have to wait awhile to set it up. –Hanna Lei
Velvet625 – Ha ha… love that idea! :)
It was below zero wind chills yesterday morning in Iowa. Fall has ran away from us for sure!
Love this idea especially since I live in Wisconsin and today’s high is 43 degrees. I wish I could swim in your pool I miss summer. Amy. My blog is http://lifestorieswithamy.blogspot.com
I love the idea of a hot chocolate station. I wish we had the space in our house for one. Hope you get some cooler weather soon so you can enjoy it!
Send the sun here to western NY.We have 5″ of snow on the ground
That is such a great idea. I am going to do something like that for my girls and I. I think on a smaller scale. Thank you. :)
Your pool is beautiful along with your weather! I am surprised you didn’t do a bull nose coping on your pool. When building ours, I was so afraid of the sharp edges with small kids.
hahaha, Glad you got the opportunity to swim in your new pool!
I’m having the same problem! I’ve been in the mood to put on the fleecy Christmas Jammie’s and light a fire, but it is just too warm outside!
I want to do a hot chocolate bar. I love them. They scream Christmas. The weather has been perfect. I have heard that we are going to have a really mild winter. Who knows, you might be able to use your pool into December.
A hot choc station with a beautiful swimming pool – now, that sounds like an awesome combination!!
Your hause is very beautifull !!!!
I like very much the decoration.
(and, I love the hot chocolate !!!! )
I love this, it made me laugh. Your pool looks magical. I have loved EVERYTHING you have chosen for your beautiful home.
I say go on ahead and make your hot cocoa station anyway. :)
Okay, you’ve had a week off from blogging. Get back to it lady!! We need updates!! :-)
