My Chocolate n’ Chintz Valentine’s Day Coffee Corner highlights the best things about February 14th. Everyone loves candy and chocolate. Women love flowers from the ones they adore. I’m crazy about floral chintz patterns, and grouping different kinds together. Finally, nothing suits me better than to drink my favorite brew from a cup accented with shabby roses.
My coffee corner was assembled from a combination of thrift store finds and Dollar Tree decorations for Valentine’s Day. The garland was made with felt hearts from Dollar Tree, and the scattered rose petals came from there as well.
I change the sign on the wall according to my coffee corner theme. My husband made a hook that can clamp a plaque to the wall, or flip up to serve as a hanger. It was perfect for hanging a thick, shabby rose shadow box picture.
The vase/pitcher is the Gabriella pattern from Burton and Burton. I knew I had to have it when I found it on a thrifting trip. I love the bold flowers and polka dots. The icy pine floral picks provided a little bit of winter to the vignette.
The Pfaltzgraff Meadow Lane coffee cups have a tiny butterfly on the inside rim of each cup.
I bought four Portobello rose cups at TJ Maxx a few years ago, but due to breakage, I only have 2 now. I love this brand! The patterns from this company are beautiful. When you hold one of their cups in your hand, you can tell it’s bone China. This cup has butterflies as well.
My plate stack contains a Mayer China restaurant ware saucer in the cross stitch pattern. The little cream pitcher holding the red flowers goes with it. I collect needlework and often use samples in my scapes and vignettes. I was happy to find a combination of 2 things I really like- restaurant ware and needlework! I’ve often read in decor blogs how the writer doesn’t want their home to look like “granny’s.” If only my house could be like my grandmother’s! She had great taste. She could cross stitch, needlepoint, crewel, hand-quilt, beat you in a game of Rook, and make homemade biscuits and gravy.
I found the Fitz and Floyd Sri Lanka plate at Goodwill a few weeks ago. It’s been waiting on my Craft Storage for Works in Progress Shelf. The Corona Sadek cake plate below it is a great example of chintz. Read about chintz and how the trend is coming back here. What can I say? I love chintz and “brown“ furniture.
I hope you enjoyed my Chocolate n’ Chintz Valentine’s Day Coffee Corner!
