If you’ve been following my little blog, my Instagram or my Facebook page for a while you’ll know that I’m a coffee lover. Big time. I can’t get enough DIY vanilla lattes, and when we designed our home we built a little nook just for me and my coffee. I decked it out for Valentine’s Day earlier this year (and painted the whole thing with chalkboard paint on a whim), and now I’ve decorated it for our Christmas company this year. I simply can’t quit chalkboard inspired things, so hold on to your seats and get ready for lots of black, white and chalkboard-ness in this year’s Christmas coffee & hot cocoa nook. Also, I’ve got a treat for my Canadian readers! Scroll down to the bottom of this post to enter to win a new Keurig 2.0!

I’m loving the whimsical look of this nook, and the book page wreath really takes the spotlight.

I finally made a book page wreath! I’m about 3 years behind the times in blogger world with this, but boy do I still love it. Plus: it was easy and free!

I cut a circle out of cardboard, ripped pages out of a book, rolled them up, glued them together, and then glued them onto the circle. The “Have a Cup of Cheer” center is gently taped on so that I can change it seasonally (this is a free printable that you can download later on down this post).

I drew some snowflakes onto my chalkboard walls for added Christmas spirit!

Last week, my girls and I had a fun afternoon of dipping marshmallows in melted chocolate chips and then sprinkling them with sprinkles. These make a cute addition to hot chocolate (or to eat on their own). I set them in little trays with M&M’s.

My lovely Keurig 2.0 is the star of the coffee and hot chocolate show here in my nook. It can brew a whole carafe of coffee, which I can leave in my stainless steel insulated carafe (this is sold separately) for my guests to easily enjoy. The Keurig 2.0 system can also brew a coffee, tea or hot chocolate in a single serving size so that my guests can choose which drink they’d prefer and make it on demand with the easy-to-follow light up screen.

Keurig 2.0 Brewing TechnologyTM reads each lid to deliver a perfect beverage every time AND the new Keurig 2.0 brewer has new features like strength control so that my guests and I can brew a stronger cup of coffee.

I put some chalkboard labels on my simple white mugs in the nook cabinet so that my Christmas guests can label their mugs and not lose them.

The nook is also outfitted with candy canes and “Merry Christmas” stir sticks in blue mason jars, tins of coffee and hot chocolate K-cups, and some fancy coffee syrup.

I tied some glittery silver jingle bells with baker’s twine from the cupboard knob. Every Christmas vignette needs glitter. Yes, it does.

Our coffee nook is in between our kitchen and our formal front room, so it’s a great spot for our Christmas guests (and… cough, cough…. me) to grab a hot drink and relax in either space.
