Fireside Hot Chocolate + S’mores Soiree {Free Printable}

I recently received an email from Tiny Prints about their new holiday card collection and was so excited to use their holiday invitations on a few little shin digs before the end of the year. I immediately knew that I wanted to do a little fireside hot chocolate & s’mores soiree to kick off the holiday season!

I used the Tiny Prints “Chilly Party” invitation as inspiration for the party decor.

A few minutes with a little chalk and some red pom poms and I had a darling backdrop for the hot chocolate bar!

I already had my jars set up from my hot chocolate station and I added peppermint patties, peppermint cream and hazelnut cream to the menu!!

“Say, what’s in this drink?”

Themed tags printed on sticker paper were perfect for keeping track of whose drink was whose…

The s’mores station was set up fireside. Like on the hot chocolate bar, I used polka dot wrapping paper to add a little whimsy to the table. It’s one of my favorite (and cheapest) ways to make any party more festive!!

The s’mores menu also featured lyrics from “Baby It’s Cold Outside”, and provided a few twists on the traditional s’more. (available in printable file)

“I oughta say no, no, no sir”

We had three types of chocolate and three types of graham crackers. One of my other favorite party tricks is to use the backs of double sided invitations. Just cut up a few extra invites and use them as buffet cards for a festive and free touch!

It was such an easy little soiree to pull off, and since everyone was on the hook for mixing their own eats and drinks, I had nothing to do but mingle!

It would hardly be a Dixie Delights party without a little something to carry home! Snowman peeps (Target) were perfect stand-ins for the take home s’more. (available in printable file)

  1. Amanda,
    Is it weird that I totally feel like I know your family and extended family? I found myself saying the kids names outloud when I came to their pics and then laughing at their expressions. I feel like a stalker…but in a good way! Love this idea…think I may "borrow" it for a haliday gathering that's twirling around in my head…Hmmmmm. Thanks!

  2. Good to see Charlie and Dottie….oh and MEL!!!!! LOL.
    It was so cold here last week that I wish I had that hot cocoa. Miss ya. xo

  3. PRECIOUS! As always. So creative and looked like fun was had by all. Love the pic of Whit with s'mores on his face! Tell your sister when CeeCee out grows all her precious clothes us fans of your Ebay site will snatch them up. My sweet little man wore a smocked turkey John John for Thanksgiving that I bought from y'all. He looked quite dapper! I'm having a girl in early April so I'd LOVE to snag some of CeeCee's fashions.

  4. Glad you were able to find the peeps! After searching hi and low for them, I bought out the Walgreens in Dunwoody and the CVS in Sandy Springs. Again, thank you for being so generous with your creative ideas and printables. Julie
