This hot chocolate bar was a special request by the birthday boy who had chosen all the ingredients himself and also waited patiently till the birthday party to sprinkle them on his hot cocoa!! The bar is part of the Harry Potter themed birthday that I will be posting soon.The beautiful sign for the bar and labels for jars and bottles that you see here were hand-calligraphed by a brilliant fellow vendor and also my dear friend Sadaf from Scarletscrollstudio! Sadaf works out of her studio in her Arizona home. Mostly self-taught she had endeavored in variety of art techniques and media, including but not limited to calligraphy, painting, watercolors, sketching, digital art, mosaics, ebru, silk painting and embroidery. Her etsy shop showcases her original work and she also create custom projects. I love working with her and especially this project was really fun since like me, she is also a Harry Potter fan! We exchanged couple of pictures and she took it from there and created this awesome design that totally complemented the party! The backdrop was the beautiful sign for chocolate bar along with references to when the hot cocoa or hot chocolate was mentioned in the book series. Assortment of mason jars and glass containers with labels were used to hold the condiments for the milk cocoa. This chocolate bar was one big hit! The kids enjoyed looking at labels, pictures and quotes while making their hot drink. Almost all of them were HP fans so that made everything worthwhile!I am not a big fan of disposable cups, but the porcelain or china mugs did not seem like a good idea in the excited hands of party-enjoying kids. Up untill this point, I had not figured out how to fit the quotes from the books in the decor. The flexibility with the paper cups gave me the idea to do just that! I looked up for quotes from books and on google. Some I printed as they were, some I typed in different fonts, all in squares and rectangles and then tea stained a few of them. I wrapped the coffee cups in the brown craft paper and pasted the printed quotes on them. The transformation looked great!
I love the Harry Potter theme and I love hot chocolate bars! Hope you liked it too!
