Inspiration du jour ... #blueandwhitebash

Good morning and Happy December!!!

It truly is the most magical time of the year ... and what better way to kick it off then with a The Pink Pagoda's Blue and White Bash?

I have been working hard to make each and every corner of our home festive for the holidays and I started with my favorite little nook in the kitchen ... 

the cocoa station!

We are big fans of hot cocoa here in the Minear house and since nothing says happy day more than hot cocoa in December I make sure we have the best selection of all things cocoa!

I just love transforming this little hutch for the holidays ... it greets me every time I walk into the house!  I used our blue and white mugs to start this year's station and I just love how the red and green pop with our usual display of blue and white!

I would love to make you a cup ... feel free to pop over and stay a while!  We have both regular Swiss Miss and Target Salted Caramel.  Don't you just love K cups ... they have made my life a breeze!  And if you need to take it and go ... I can make it for you in a red and white chevron to go cup I found at Home Goods.  But beware ... I have cleaned out both of the locations near me!  xo

I found these adorable gingerbread house mug toppers at Williams Sonoma and I am over the moon excited to gift them!  They sit on your mug while you drink and then are a perfect little snack to accompany a cup of cocoa.  We like ours topped with Redi Whip and then sprinkled with a choice of toppings!  I prefer milk chocolate shavings and tiny candy canes ... Little Bit likes hers topped with peppermint marshmallows!  The boys prefer a cup and their peppermint stir sticks and Lawyer just likes it straight!  Mr. Simple for sure!

Hope you are having an amazing day ... I could not be more excited about the start of my favorite month of the year!

Happy December 1st!
