An Outdoor S'more & Hot Cocoa Station Inspired by a Vintage Cooler

Do you ever see something that you just have to have! Just because . . . just because you know it will transform a space into something fabulous? That's how I felt when I spotted this retro cooler - I had to have it!
Look at those colors - swoon! I knew that I could pair it with a bold red plaid and create a super fun, outdoor S'more and Hot Cocoa station on my porch!
The rest of the items I needed were things I already had on hand. A small vintage sled sets the mood for the display on a small table. A birch stump raises the cooler to the perfect height for dispensing hot cocoa. Of course, you need a little tree with some sparkling lights!
A smaller table holds a vintage Coke crate full of everything you need to make S'mores - Hershey's chocolate bars, graham crackers and a vintage jar of marshmallows. A plaid lunchbox holds simple white mugs for the hot cocoa. The roasting forks are ready for an impromptu winter fire for friends and family.
And, once it was all set up - you know we had to try it out! I'm sure I'll be leaving this set up throughout the winter months this year!
