Hello Fall Gift

I will be the first to admit that summer is my favorite season of the year.  If it wasn’t for all the cute fall decorations and super yummy pumpkin-flavored things, I would seriously go into fall kicking and screaming.  So, this year when fall reared its head yet again, I needed my pumpkin fix quick!  And, just like magic our latest shipment from Seattle Chocolates arrived with their seasonal truffle flavor, Pumpkin Spice.  Ahh, I was seriously giddy!  I quickly scooped up a handful of truffles along with our new ‘eek’ air filled balloon, and a chai tea candle.  Before I knew it, I was enjoying all my favorite things about fall – cute decor, delicious pumpkin goodies and my favorite smells – and reminded that each season has its highlights.        


Happy Fall!

Hot Cocoa Bar Ideas

Nothing is better on a cold winter day than a piping hot cup of hot cocoa! Top that hot cocoa with marshmallows and whipped cream and cookies and chocolate chips…you really want hot cocoa now, right? Well, mix up a big batch and invite some friends over!


Our sweet friend Pilar over at Vintage Mingle styled this incredibly adorable hot cocoa bar for my holiday mini sessions (check me out at katiehphoto.com). Styled with her own rentals, as well as Fancy That’s awesome party supplies and custom signage from Letters & Dust, Pilar created a mini winter wonderland.

Hot Cocoa Bar

So obviously the most important thing when creating a hot cocoa bar is the hot cocoa! At Fancy That we love Tree House Chocolate! It’s simple, natural and delicious!

Next are the marshmallows – now you could just go buy your standard marshmallows from the grocery store (nothing wrong with that), but let me tell you – the marshmallows made by Delectable Baked Goods are A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Like the best marshmallows I’ve ever had and they melt so perfectly in the hot chocolate! Shoot her a message or stop by Fancy That on December 3rd for Delectable’s pop-up shop to grab a bag of these babies! You won’t regret it.


As far as other toppings go, whipped cream is a staple of course, and we also used crushed red velvet oreo’s and snow cap chocolate chips. Isn’t this hand stamped spoon by Inkberry so cute?!

Our friend Sarah from DeBruhl Cookie Designs made these beautiful hot cocoa cup sugar cookies for us!


I put some donuts out there too, because I love donuts.


You can’t drink hot cocoa without cups! We are in love with these buffalo plaid cup sleeves. Designed at Fancy That HQ, these wraps are so fun and cute. Who wouldn’t want to drink out of these?

So, you’ve got your hot chocolate brewing and all your toppings out, time to decorate your bar! I love the gold letter balloons we carry at Fancy That. We went with “cocoa” but you could make it say whatever you want – the sky is the limit.

These pretty plaid hanging fans were used as part of our backdrop. They are so versatile and add extra fancy to the party.

If you’re a DIY’er you could paint wood rounds with chalk paint and hand letter them for some fun signage!


We used vintage glass bowls, cake plates and stands to hold our toppings and treats. Thrift stores are an awesome place to find unique serving dishes! If you ain’t got time for none of that, get in touch with Vintage Mingle and Letters & Dust!

We’d love to see your hot cocoa bar! Tag us in your photos on Facebook or Instagram!

Happy Holidays,

Farmers Market Fun

I’m so ready for farmers’ market season!  It really is the best time of year – local fruits and veggies, local farmers and strolling outside.  You can’t beat it!  And now, with our new farmers’ market inspired gifts we have a way for you to enjoy this time of year long after you’ve left the market and eaten all your yummy finds!

Farmers Market

Our new produce candles (think tomato, cilantro, honey, and more) smell absolutely incredible and Fancy That is the only place in Oregon to carry them!  But really, I am so in love with this entire line, I just can’t pick a favorite.  Packaged together they would make a fabulous gift for your favorite farmers’ market fan – even if that’s you!
