Valentine’s Day Beverage Bar

Thanks for sharing!

Valentine's Day Beverage Bar

In just a few short weeks, we will be celebrating Valentine's Day. This was the perfect opportunity for me to freshen up my Christmas Hot Chocolate Bar for continued use through the month of February. I don't decorate a lot for Valentine's Day, but small areas like this are perfect for a little nod to the holiday. 

This month for our Pinterest Challenge, we are sharing ideas for decorating with garlands for winter or Valentine's Day. I've incorporated my garland into my Valentine's Day Beverage Bar.

Welcome to another installment of our monthly Pinterest Challenges hosted by my sweet friend, Cindy, from County Road 407

IF YOU ARE NEW TO THE PINTEREST CHALLENGE, HERE ARE THE DETAILS!

  • each month Cindy selects a photo for inspiration online that we will recreate
  • the owner of the photo has graciously given us permission to give our spin on the project
  • you will receive numerous ideas that you can replicate in your home to keep things fresh

This month we were inspired to put our own spin on decorating with garlands. This month's inspiration comes from Refresh Living. She shares with you a complete tutorial for making this garland. 

I went the extra mile (ha,ha) and purchased my garland from Hobby Lobby at 40% off. It's out of stock online, but I've found you a couple of alternatives below.

If you are visiting from Yvonne over at Stone Gable, welcome! Don't you just love her wood beaded garland! I'm totally inspired to make one for spring.

This was such a simple look to put together since it was used for Christmas. We still have quite a few weeks of hot chocolate weather ahead of us. Since we are back in a state of an empty nest with the kids back at college, I didn't replace the large loose container of hot cocoa mix. Since it will be used more often for hot tea now, I'm using hot cocoa packs for freshness. We drink hot tea several times per day. Now this area is operating more as a hot beverage station with cocoa and tea.

I've had these topiaries for years! I have several different varieties. They work with all decor and seasons. I think they've been in every room in our house at some point. They are so sweet for the seasons by adding ribbon to the trunk. The polka dot ribbon looks adorable with the pom pom garland.

I always love an opportunity to use my blue and white china. It's another staple that works with every season. I have a set of 6 red transferware dishes by Spode. Several are hanging in the guest room. I had this extra one that was the perfect layering piece with the blue for Valentine's Day.

Garlands are such a fun seasonal touch. This one would totally work for Christmas as well as birthdays.

A Keurig or electric water kettle are perfect for creating a low maintenance beverage station. See that little rectangular box for tea bags. Our daughter made that in an elective ceramics class in college last year. What's pretty impressive about it is that she mainly made it one handed. Her arm was in a cast for the majority of that semester with 2 wrist surgeries for a tennis injury. She played college tennis until this injury ended that journey. What's funny is that it wasn't made for the intended use of tea bags. I happened upon it by accident. Tea bags are the perfect fit!

  1. The Valentine’s beverage bar looks fabulous, Christy! I do love how the ribbon on your topiaries complements your pom-pom garland. Lots of great ideas here for some cozy drinks on Valentine’s Day. Pinning!

  2. Christy, I love your pompom garland and how you’ve used it here on your hot chocolate/tea bar! Really pretty ideas for decorating this bar. I’m going to have to create some kind of bar and move my actual Japanese bar around to a wall where I can do something similar (missing an opportunity here!). Thank you for new ideas and I’m happy to be with you on this month’s tour again.

    Hearty hugs to you,
    Barb 🙂

  3. Of course you know that a store bought garland is the way to go for me! I wish I’d found this one. I would have done the same thing because it’s perfect just the way it is. And your cocoa station looks perfectly festive with the added polka dot ribbon and cute napkins. Did you keep the heart garland you made a couple of years ago or did you ditch it? I tend to just throw stuff away and now I think I should stop doing that! Thank you so much for joining in. I always appreciate your enthusiasm.

  4. Your hutch is such a pretty piece. The garland is perfect for the space and I love the heart garland on the mantel as well. You are so inspiring. Happy Valentine’s Day!

  5. Your beverage bar looks great jazzed up for Valentine’s Day. I’m impressed that Miss Ashlyn made that ceramic box with one hand. That must have been difficult! It’s perfect for tea bags and it looks pretty to boot.

    1. Thanks Paula! Yes, I was impressed with all of the items she had to make that semester. I have them all over the house. Happy Valentine’s Day!

I love hearing from you!
