I'm very excited to be back on Daytime Ottawa (for non-Ottawa residents, it's a local television show) today talking about how to host a "Hot Chocolate Bar Party" as well as getting yourself organized with DIY dry-erase organization boards.
Have you guys heard of mini parties? They were very popular last year and continue to trend for 2015. A mini party is exactly what it sounds like. We're all busy and sometimes feel overwhelmed at the thought of organizing a huge party with our family and friends. Instead, throw a mini party. With March Break here, why not throw a "hot chocolate bar" party? Hit the hill for some tobogganing fun and then have everyone back to you your house for hot chocolate and nibblies. It's easy, it's yummy and kids and adults will love it. Who doesn't love a cup of hot chocolate? It's love in a mug!
All you need is a thermos, crock pot, pot full of hot chocolate etc., and any kind of topping you want. If you tune into the show today, you can see how I've organized mine with a few tips and tricks but here are a few suggested goodies:
Of course, you can't forget the whip cream and a little chocolate sauce, sprinkles etc for added drizzle :) Yum! The kids will love it!
If you want to add a little something to the adults' hot chocolate, here are a few options to take that hot chocolate to the next level for the après tobogganing!
Hot chocolate, tequila & peppermint snaps
Hot chocolate, brandy & Frangelico
Hot chocolate & rum
Hot chocolate & Baileys
Hot chocolate & Cognac
Hot Chocolate, Crème de Cacao & Irish Cream
Hot Chocolate, Kahlua & Vodka
Hope you can tune in. If you have a Rogers account, you can watch the show anytime by clicking here and choosing Rogers Anyplace TV. Or, if you're in Ottawa you can tune into Channel 22 and watch live at 11am or repeats at 2pm, 5pm & 11pm
I'll have more on the DIY dry-erase organization on the blog soon. Think paint chits and frames.
Oh, and how can I forget....
Happy St. Patrick's Day!
I hope you have a green beer waiting for you in the near future!
Keep It Beautiful.
