{ Hot Chocolate Stand }

We're going beyond the station this year and making a Hot Chocolate STAND.

If you've met my daughter Camille at any of my events, you know she is a hustler. Always looking for the next great way to fill her piggy bank. And what better way for a kid to make a buck in the winter then to peddle hot chocolate to the freezing locals?

I started my search on Pinterest, where else?
And, one of my favorite stands was this one from Itty Bitty Portraits.

TG, I have a nephew that is a contractor. So having him rummage through my garage for scrap wood and vintage doors is a dream come true.

I found tons of other great ideas for the stand too.
So, while me nephew is outside constructing the ultimate Hot Chocolate Stand, Camille and I will be indoors creating all recipes and extras that will go along with it.
Like recipes, printable, signs, you name it.

Camille will have the hottest spot in town in no time.

I also swore I'd throw a sledding party last winter too.
Maybe if I start planning now, I'll be ready before the first snow.

  1. What a wonderful idea! Good luck to your budding entrepreneur!

  2. how cute will that stand look out in the front yard? I've got no little ones so won't be able to pull it off, but it sure would be cute to have a stand like that to decorate.

  3. Any luck finding some similar plans for the stand? I've been looking for over a year!!! I pinned their post and have inquired trying to find someone to replicate one for me!
