  1. I love your hot chocolate bar with the adorable chalk art. I’m a sucker for chalk art. I like that your bar doesn’t scream Christmas so you could use it all winter long!

      Thanks, Christy! Hot chocolate bars are so fun to decorate, aren’t they?

  2. Lora, love your vintage boxes and of course your hot chocolate bar sign. Your mugs are really unique. You’ve set up a sweet place to enjoy the warmth of a cup of cocoa. Happy Thanksgiving.

      Thanks, Carol!

  3. Lora, I love all the vintage touches you share here in your hot cocoa bar!!! The mugs step right out of when I was little and the cheese boxes are neat! My dad had one he repurposed into a shoeshine kit; I think my second brother has it now. Very fun recreation, yours!!!

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family,
    Barb 🙂

      Thanks, Barb! I’ve slowly been picking up these old restaurant-ware pieces for a fun mish-mosh of vintage tableware. I love all the patterns!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Tania! It was super fun to create it all!

  4. Such a darling display Lora! I adore all the creative elements. May you and your family have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Laura! You, too!

  5. Lora, I LOVE the way your chalkboard sign turned out! The pattern is so perfect with those stencils. And candy cane covered pretzels?! Whaaaaat? I included my favorite yogurt covered pretzels in my bar, and I thought those were yummy but yours sound even better. I always love your cool vintage vibe…that ruler container is so charming. Happy Thanksgiving!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Crissy! Yes, those Christmas pretzels are killer. Luckily just 1 satisfies my sweet tooth:)

  6. You did a great job creating your own hot cocoa bar that is reminiscent of Jessica’s! Love your little tray for the treats, Lora… and your tree looks great, too! Pinned!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Julie! Just picked up a couple of these cute old trays made from rulers. Trying to come up with unusual ways to use them!

  7. Girlfriend, you are so clever! I specifically did not add syrups or whipped cream to my set up because the containers didn’t “match”. LOL! I’m so excited to see how you covered yours. I must copy that! Love all of your vintage goodies. Especially the little crate for your pretzels and mini candy canes. Love it all! Thanks so much for joining in each month. You are the best. Happy Thanksgiving!

      I love your hops, Cindy, and love being included! This was a fun one to put together; I just love using vintage containers for serveware!

  8. I love, love your version of this challenge. My vintage loving heart adores all of the vintage pieces that you used in this display. My dad was in the dairy business and I have bunches of milk bottles. I love how you put your candy cane sticks in the milk bottle. Your chalkboard made from an old mirror looks great and you are going to enjoy using it for decorating in any season. I always enjoy visiting here with you!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thank you, Paula. We both just love the character and sentimental touch of our vintage, don’t we? It’s so fun to use and enjoy it in a different way!

  9. Lora you gave us all great inspiration. I love how you made your sign and all the details you placed in your space. It is a beautiful set up. Enjoy your Thanksgiving my friend.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      Thanks, Terrie!

  10. wow, this is almost identical to the setup of the Challenge picture. You really did capture the image perfectly. Love your added treats to the display. I love it all. What a fabulous Hot Chocolate Bar.

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      You’re right, Marty, this one came off pretty similar! Doesn’t always happen that way, but I did love how she put hers together. Thanks!

  11. HI Lora! I love your vintage spin! I have similar pretzels I found at Sprouts! Visiting from Everyday Edits, laura in Colorado! Blizzard in Denver to kick off the hot cocoa challenge! laura

      My son was living in the CO mountains last year, Laura! Yes, we love our snow as much as you!We’re already white here and expecting more this weekend. We like it on this side; in April…not so much:( Fun to have you joining in!
