playful fox inspired hot chocolate station


I was recently asked to dream up some fall entertaining inspiration incorporating a few items from Targetokay, twist my arm! ;)  I wanted to have a little fun with this, and my mind instantly jumped to some fox themed items that had caught my eye earlier this month while shopping in-store: a wooden fox figural (that was just screaming for a few embellishments!) and a cool wood serving tray with brass fox handles. SO, I decided it would be fun to design a Playful Fox Inspired Hot Chocolate Station that could work for any sort of fall celebration, as well as for kids and grown ups alike.


Of course, every time I hear the word “fox” lately, the song What Does The Fox Say by Ylvis instantly plays in my head! My little ones are constantly asking for it lately thanks to this {seriously amazing!} Halloween Lights Show video on YouTube. I realize that if you’re not familiar with this song, the choice of words I used on the 8×10 party sign might seem a little strange… so now you know the inspiration behind them. :) And for those of you that are familiar with this song and get it stuck in your head lately like me, I’m including a special 2nd variation of the (free) “talk bubble” printables below that includes some of the actual lyrics from the song! ;) You can also see this variation pictured in last 2 table shots below.

Anyways, I hope you have some fun with these ideas and get inspired to set up a hot chocolate bar of your own this season! Scroll down for more images and details + links to the products that inspired this project.
