Faux Hot Cocoa Bar

I'm giving my porch a bit of a ski chalet look this year for the holidays.  It's still a work in progress, but I wanted to share some recent touches.
I picked up the plaid pillows ($19.99 each) from Marshall's last week.  They have snowflakes on the other side, but I adore the plaid so I tucked the snowflakes to the back.  We've had the blanket for a few seasons now.  I think it was a gift from my mom.
I wanted to make a wood hot cocoa bar sign, but since I'm trying to stay on budget, I found this free printable on Pinterest.  The frame is from Ikea from a few years ago and the mugs are from the Dollar Store.
Isn't this cup of cheer printable the sweetest?  Also found it on Pinterest.
All that's missing is some actual hot cocoa!  And here's what's brewing on the other side of the porch.
I still have a ton of faux presents to add, but the weather has been wet the last couple of days here.  We got the LL Bean sleigh when our boys were toddlers.  I'm so happy to be using it again!

Your porch looks gorgeous.

LOVE those plaid pillows...and with snowflakes you have two distinct looks if you want. Your cocoa "bar" is darling and I love the tags on the cups. xo Diana
