KKATIEB: I doubt that it is safe to place glass jars on a hot plate.

If you rent this type of carafe, you coud make an insulated cover in the fabric of your choice- basically a tube of fabric.

restaurant supply places may have a black electric soup kette to rent. The nice thing about them is that they are plain and all black.

a copper kettle on a hot plate will look great

Copper Kettle Tea Pot Solid Stove Stovetop Coffee Cocoa Gas Electric Home Dining

or a copper dutch oven

If you have a large number of guests, you could use an igloo cooler (which also keeps drinks hot)- you would have to heat the cider in something else

and make a wrap for it like a keg wrap

My friend had a really elegant wedding, but served hot cider just in an igloo server type thing.  It was in the cocktail area, and not her formal reception space, so I didn’t think anything of it.  You could definitely make a pretty cover for them though.

KKATIEB: Mmmm I love this idea. From seeing your thread title, I’m now craving this lol. I like julies1949: idea of getting a fabric warmer as this could then tie in with your colours.

KKATIEB:  IDK how set you are on serving it warm but we’ve decided to have glass jugs of cold cider and a menu of suggested “spikes” for it.  People can serve themselves then take it to the bar for a shot of something.

Thanks for asking this question! I will probably want to serve hot cider & spiced wine at ours, so it’s good to keep logistics like this in mind.

Seconding the copper kettle!  A red flag goes up for me when i think about guests serving themselves hot beverages, but the kettle idea seems rather fool proof, yet still pretty.

KKATIEB:  I really want to do this too. While these suggestions are all great, I was hoping for the large glass jars too. Let me know if you find another way please!
