Its about that time of year, where we bid a fond adieu to summer and (try to!) welcome the on-coming fall and winter months.  Although the bitter cold of winter doesn't sound so fun right now, one of the newest trends for winter and fall weddings has got me SUPER excited!  Its a Hot Beverage Bar!  (Think candy bar - only with hot drinks.)  So fun!  What better way to warm up your guests and add something interactive to your event!  And the possibilities are endless.  Seriously.  You could have a Hot Cocoa Bar with mix-ins like homemade marshmallows (in your wedding colors, natch!), peppermint candies or sticks, homemade whipped cream, nutmeg, flavored syrups, chili powder (trust me, its delicious!), etc.  Or, you could have a variety of different hot beverages like chai tea, herbal teas, coffee, apple cider, hot toddies, espresso, and wassail - each in their own signature cup with a cute little sign and signature garnish.  So cute!  Or, even simply a coffee bar with tiny little doughnuts.  There are so many options to fit your style and tastes - not to mention its totally not something you'd see every day!  Your guests will love being able to warm up with (and dress up!) a hot drink and putting it together in a cute bar set up is bound to bring a smile to any face!  Happy planning readers!
