Do you have a hot cocoa or coffee bar? What about a tea or wine bar? What if you could have all four in one place? Well, you can! I’m using a vintage tea cart, but you could any cart or maybe a shelf. Let me show you 10 ideas to help you create your own beverage bar! 

Cocoa Condiments for Your Beverage Bar

How do you take your cocoa? I personally like it piping hot with lots of mini marshmallows. Some love a little peppermint with theirs. However you like yours, a fun way to add and display your condiments is with a tiered tray and mason jars! I’ve got marshmallows, crushed peppermint, peppermint sticks, hot cocoa powder, and cookies in my jars! What would be in yours?

Hot Cocoa Pallet Wood Tray

Do you know who Ms Jennifer Pugh is? She creates such beautiful art for calendars, gift bags, and more! Her Farmhouse calendar became wildly popular after being sold at the Dollar Tree. Crafters started using the calendars to craft with so she decided to offer print packs! This was part of her Christmas print pack. Watch how I transformed it into a tray for the hot cocoa area of our beverage cart >>HERE<<

Single Cup Coffee Maker

Of course every coffee bar needs a coffee maker, and they have these relatively inexpensive on Amazon, so I snatched it up and it’s the perfect addition to our bar! Get one >>HERE<<! I added a small basket with creamer cups and stevia packets. There is also a box of stir sticks hiding behind that cocoa sign.

Burlap Personalized Wine Bag

If you’re not a wine drinker, just skip the next two sections. I actually created this DIY wine bag to be used as gifts for the wine lover on your Christmas list. I loved it so much, I decided to make one for us and add it to one of the wine bottles on our cart. This is a great gift idea throughout the year, not just at Christmas, though. See how to make it >>HERE<<

Wood Bead Wine Bottle Tag

Another neat idea for a wine bottle decor is this wood bead hanger! You can use a chalk marker if you don’t have the vinyl decal or access to a cutting machine. This was made during the same video as linked above but I’m linking it again >>HERE<<
