So we have all seen various pics depicting inviting and inspiring coffee and hot cocoa stations. I so want that! It's the holidays!...I love and need coffee and hot cocoa, and who wouldn't want to have their very own coffee shop at home. Plus, what a cool way to impress family and friends during your holiday gathering! But with so much going on this season, I just don't have the time to recreate these images exactly the way they appear. Basically, I want what they have but a little simpler and budget friendly.
Whenever i get inspired to do some decorating I survey my home to see if there is anything being unused that needs a more current use. I was looking for a food tray in my kitchen to use, but I remembered this silver tray that I had in my bedroom. I got this from my favorite store Homegoods, two years ago. Looks pretty, but no true purpose in my bedroom. Let's give this tray a real job!
For some holiday decor, I also grabbed two dollar store poinsettias and grabbed some pine cones I had in another room.
I also love how Pinterest, images display coffee/hot cocoa stations with a beautifully framed chalk board, with the quote, "Baby it's cold outside." Remember I'm being thrifty, so I used the same dollar store tray that I actually painted with black chalkboard paint last thanksgiving for a menu sign. Not the best print, we used my daughters chunky sidewalk chalk.
