Hot Cocoa Party

I love every little thing that comes with the holidays including sweet treats and yummy sips! I cherish nights at home by my Christmas tree when I get to curl up in winter pajamas and have a little hot cocoa party with my roomie/bestie, Allison. Sometimes, it can feel like such an indulgence to relax outside of work and there’s no better way to do it than with a Christmas movie and a warm cup of cocoa. So, I’ve rounded up all the fixings you need to have a little hot cocoa party of your own! Happy week leading up to Christmas!

If you’re following along with all things Rhyme & Reason Christmas then you saw me wear this outfit in my Home for the Holidays post! I’ve honestly been wearing it non-stop! I wore the velvet top (similar, more similar options below) out on Saturday night in New York with friends and I wore the lace pants (more sizes here) last weekend to brunch at the Beverly Hills Hotel! I also wore these party shoes out to The Nutcracker on Sunday night and got a handful of compliments on them (p.s. they also come in pink!). All in all, it’s a perfect holiday party look!

Hot Cocoa Fixings: Mugs / Hot Cocoa (I also like plain flavored hot cocoa) / Tray (old – similar) / Marshmallows / Candy Canes

I found so many fun marshmallows, peppermints, and other treats to make for the perfect hot cocoa party! All you need to do is grab some hot cocoa mix (peppermint or plain), pick out a few yummy add-ons, throw it all on a tray and you’ve got yourself an easy hot cocoa party! P.S. these initial mugs are available year-round in black but they are only ever released in gold in the month of December so scoop them up now or you’ll be waiting a whole year for them!

Allison’s red sweater (similar) is so fun and festive that it just screams holiday party. She dressed it up by layering it on top of a crisp white button-down and tossing it on over leather leggings (similar, more similar options below). The leather leggings definitely pull the whole look together and make it party ready opposed to a more casual (but still equally put-together!) look if she wore it with jeans. Her jumbo pearl earrings are the perfect final touch for the outfit! You also must know that if you order her lookalike watch today you can still get it by Christmas Eve… it’s the perfect gift or stocking stuffer!
