Warm your guests this Holiday with a warm up station stocked with beverages for all ages! It’s easy to create a self-serve area for families and friends during your holiday gatherings with this project.
Using your existing mugs, bowls, and creamers you can pull together a beverage area that is labeled and accessible to all guests. Let the kids sprinkle hot chocolate with their favourite toppings, or keep the adults going with warm coffee, tea or cider. Whatever the craving, your visitors will be kept warm with holiday cheer.

Creating Labels. Using the Scotch® Chalkboard Tape you can easily create a space on your existing ceramics to label the items in your station. This creamer gets a piece of Scotch® Chalkboard Tape cut to fit on the front, and is accented with Scotch™ Expressions™ Washi Tape, Red Holly and Scotch™ Expressions™ Magic™ Tape, Metallic Gold Crinkle.
Add some dots. This small bowl has been turned into a chalk dish for this project, with an added decorative detail. Using the Scotch® Chalkboard Tape cut out circles with your circle punch. Adhere them to the outside of the bowl to create this polka dot pattern.
Sparking details. Add some sparkle to the serving spoons using using a Scotch™ Expressions™ Magic™ Tape, Metallic Gold Crinkle utility knife. Simply apply the tape to the handle of the spoon and trim using your blade.
EXPERT TIP: By adding a few pieces of chalk to your station guests can write their name on their mug and keep track of their beverage all night.
