I was thrilled to participate in Home Depot’s Holiday Style Challenge this year! The challenge is to take a box of unexpected items and design an area they give you. My area was outside, so I infused my love of sweets and entertaining to create a charming hot cocoa stand! The goal was to incorporate all of the items Home Depot sent me and make it look like a winter wonderland! As you know, it only snows in the mountains here so we bought a few large bags of fake snow to toss all over the ground and I have to say it actually made it look a little chilly, right? Also, as we were shooting this in the fall, a school bus of children drove by and were screaming “Christmas! Christmas!” with the biggest smiles on their faces! This wintery and festive hot cocoa stand was definitly a hit! To see more and get some fun tips, head over to Home Depot’s blog!
