Chan­fash­ion ready to share ideas, tips and recipes for alco­holic drinks for a win­ter wed­ding!

hot chocolate and cocoa bar

Hot choco­late and aro­mat­ic cocoa are the most pop­u­lar drinks for autumn and win­ter. They fill us with warmth, are asso­ci­at­ed with child­hood and hol­i­days. There­fore, we firm­ly believe: cocoa bar is a must for every win­ter wed­ding, no mat­ter what theme you choose. Take a vin­tage side­board or wood­en table, cov­er it with a table­cloth, add spruce branch­es in wreaths or spruce gar­lands to cre­ate an absolute­ly win­ter atmos­phere.

Small snowy Christ­mas trees, cop­per mugs, choco­late fig­urines ded­i­cat­ed to your wed­ding, wood­en signs with inscrip­tions Get warm”, Help your­self”, Keep a good mood” — fan­ta­size and dec­o­rate your cocoa bar, as you wish. Your guests will be hap­py like chil­dren in the New Year!

Of course, you need to take care of the dish­es: paper cups look very dig­ni­fied, and if you dec­o­rate them with themed inscrip­tions, your ini­tials or cute pat­terns, they will make guests take out their mobile phones and take self­ies!

Porce­lain cups or mono­grammed alu­minum mugs with your date will cost sig­nif­i­cant­ly more, but look even more beau­ti­ful! This is not just dish­es, but a real decor.

And which cocoa bar with­out zephy­rok? Com­ple­ment hot choco­late tables with sim­ple sweets in glass jars or bowls. Appe­tiz­ing in appear­ance, sweet in taste, amaz­ing in mem­o­ry.

marshmallow bar

Fused marsh­mal­lowsso vis­cous and sug­ary-sweet, while still hot, are won­der­ful­ly suit­ed for a hol­i­day in the cold, whether it is a win­ter, Christ­mas or Feb­ru­ary wed­ding. Orga­nize a bar with marsh­mal­lowso that guests can chat by the fire and eat deli­cious sweets.

You can also merge the zone marsh­mal­low and a hot choco­late bar, cre­at­ing one very pop­u­lar spot at your wed­ding. Per­haps more pop­u­lar than pho­to booth and the dance floor!

Tips for serving hot cocktails at a wedding

  • Think about how you’ll serve your drinks: sim­mer­ing, hot cock­tails will blow up reg­u­lar glass­ware: look for iron dis­pos­able cups, ceram­ic mugs, or Irish cof­fee glass­es for win­ter drinks, or serve them warm rather than hot.
  • Talk to the ban­quet venue admin­is­tra­tor about how to store ready-made drinks: on the stove or in large food ther­moses.
  • Dream up dec­o­ra­tions — cre­at­ing styl­ish hol­i­day cock­tails is all about how they look, not just how they taste. Cin­na­mon sticks, orange peels, can­dies, pome­gran­ate seeds, cof­fee beans and marsh­mal­lows - beau­ti­ful win­ter dec­o­ra­tions.

May yourcel­e­bra­tion be incred­i­bly warm and cozy!
