Valentine Cocoa Station by Shantaie

Well, we have more wonderful Valentine projects for you so we begin Week #2 of Valentine fun!  Today Shantaie shares with us a treat!

Wintertime is the perfect time for a hot cocoa bar, and although I have seen dozens of them decorated for Christmas a Valentine's themed cocoa station is exactly what I wanted for my kitchen!  Shantaie here today to share my Valentine hot cocoa bar idea.

I cut a sweet vinyl saying with my Silhouette using black matte SRM vinyl  and sized it to fit my two tier tray. I layered the saying at the top, but of course you can do it however you like! 
So let's talk about the good stuff, what I added to my cocoa station!

I made a set of TUBES filled with cocoa mix, chocolate chips and two little pink heart shaped marshmallows ( I can't handle how cute these are!) A We've got your border sticker was wrapped around each lid and a layered punched piece is topped with a heart sticker from stickers by the dozen Valentine and tied on with baker's twine.

I used a fine point chalk marker in fluorescent pink to write on the label of this candy jar of marshmallows, an essential ingredient to a Valentine's cup of hot chocolate! 

Speaking of Labels....I added this one to a ball jar and wrote "& chocolate chips" after the word love. I think little details like this make your station warm and inviting, as well as exciting! 

Love is sweet!  And I think that these TUBES would be a wonderful Valentine to classmates, teachers, or just about anyone who could use a warmed heart!!! 

I will be stalking pinterest and instagram to see your spin on the Valentine's cocoa bar and the Valentine's cocoa TUBES!!!! Make sure to tag SRM in your photos!!!
