Hot Cocoa Kids Party Inspired by The Magic of Christmas

Be prepared to enter into a world where Candy Cane Forests and Santa’s Workshop couldn’t feel more real! Because this kids party inspired by the magic of Christmas will spark the spirit of the season in everyone who sees it! Hot cocoa was served in a mug custom-made for every little one, presents were tied up with bells and yarn, and a mailbox sat at-the-ready for all of the kids’ letters to Santa. What’s more magical than that?!

As a mom of four, my favorite part of the holidays is having the chance to experience Christmas through the innocent eyes of my children. They are mesmerized by the magic of the season… the lights, yummy smells, festive décor, and of course Santa! Each year, my kids set out cookies and carrots hoping to stay up all night to catch a glimpse of Old St. Nick and his beloved reindeers. However, my oldest son is getting to an age where the magic of the holidays is slowly starting to fade. The Christmas bell is losing its ring…

This year, I decided to create a styled shoot centered around “Believing” in the magic of Christmas. I drew inspiration from one of my kids’ favorite holiday movies, The Polar Express. I focused on the hot chocolate scene, because let’s be honest it’s awesome! I wanted the shoot to be a mix of both traditional and boho/minimalist. To achieve the desired feel, we went with a traditional holiday color palette of red, white and green with natural wood accents. We selected a white low spindle table from Teak & Lace for our kid tablescape. The table was adorned with a simple seeded eucalyptus garland. Each place setting included a personalized hot cocoa mug dressed with a cookie. We also selected a mix of holiday plates and an ombre green dipped napkin. To add a sentimental touch to each place setting, we created handmade tassel bracelets, each with its own Christmas bell. A festive keepsake for each child to remember “seeing is believing, but sometimes the most real things in the world are the things we can’t see”. The kids and I also decorated our own gingerbread house, which became the centerpiece of the table.

For the hot chocolate bar, I selected all white trays and stands to hold delicious hot cocoa toppings including peppermint bark, M&M’s, chocolate chips and candy canes. Our mini Christmas tree included red and white pom pom ornaments. Mugs were filled with individual hot cocoa kits, each adorned with a Christmas bell. Handmade tassels dressed up the apothecary jars filled with cocoa and marshmallows. To stick with the minimalist vibe, we draped the table with a seeded eucalyptus garland wrapped with natural wooden beads.
