Thanksgiving Vignette Hop {Apple Cider Bar}

I was so flattered when my sweet blog friend Sherry at No Minimalist Here invited me to join her Thanksgiving Vignette party!!  I love any sort of beverage bar out on the porch, as evidenced by my hot chocolate bars and bloody mary bar, and have been itching to put together an apple cider bar.

The leaves are falling, the air is crisp and we are practically living out on the porch.  When Honey built the sideboard, he did so with entertaining in mind.  It has absolutely been the most functional piece out there!

I use a percolator to heat and serve the apple cider, and mason jar mugs rimmed in brown sugar are practically the embodiment of fall.  The Happy Everything mini plate is out year round, with the cornucopia attachment during the month of November.

On the toppings front we have whipped cream, brown sugar, cinnamon sticks and apple slices.  Add a splash of Apple Jack if you really want to take it to the next level!!

It wasn’t until we were all lounging around on the sofa enjoying ourselves that I realized I forgot to put out the caramel sauce. They were divine no matter!

The apple cider bar was such a hit that I think we’ll leave it up straight through Thanksgiving!!  In fact, it would be the perfect way to unwind after the big turkey or to entertain before the meal.

Happy almost Thanksgiving y’all!!
