I've been scouting out something I could use as a coffee station for months now. Nothing really caught my eye. There are only two of us in our house that even drink coffee so I wanted to keep it simple. I think the Keurig machines are cool but not really worth the expense (for me.) Not trying to be a frugal snob but with only two of us drinking the stuff and one of those not even home most of the time, it isn't worth the cash to me. I don't want to spend that much money on a coffee maker nor the pods that go in it..I still want to be able to buy my other treasures after all :)
I found this tiered serving piece at an anitique mall this weekend while we were visiting Franklin, TN ......again. I loved the scalloped edges and the creamy color. What I didn't love was the gold colored handles..so I spray painted them and took some of the paint off with my finger nail after it had almost dried. I love the new look much better.
These sweet little Pfaltzgraff cups, I found at the GW.... 4 of them for 2 bucks :) They fit perfectly on the first plate. They are wide and just the right height to work here. I'm drinking out of one of them now as I type. Wish I had taken a picture of this carmel colored deliciousness!
I snagged this coffee canister at a yard sale this fall and purchased the small red canisters this weekend from DG to put sugar and cappuccino in. The little snow flake adds a winter touch to this corner of our coffee station counter area.
I add two of these little sweethearts in my cup. They don't even need to be refrigerated so that means they can sit on the top of the station and be handy dandy. This girl loves some cream! Coffee-mate makes some splendid flavors too. Carmel Macchioto is one of our absolute favorites.
If you have non-coffee drinkers in your house like we do..there's always hot chocolate.
Happy Holidays Folks!
Hope you're snuggled in like we are enjoying a warm cup of coffee and admiring the lights on your tree, and most importantly reflecting on a baby in Bethlehem.
