In celebration of the love month, Kapetolyo by SGD Coffee built a flower wall for its customers.

The shop redesigns its flower wall weekly. In the first week of February, the wall was filled with sunflowers. This week, it was designed with chrysanthemums.

Margaret Watanabe, one of the coffee shop owners, said it took 12 hours to build the chrysanthemum wall.

The flowers were from Mirabueno Flower Farm in Bukidnon, she added.

Watanabe said they plan to arrange one more flower wall next week and this time, a wall full of roses.

“Hopefully, it pushes thru,” she said.

Aside from a picturesque setup for Valentine’s Day, the coffee shop will also offer a special dinner menu curated by Chef Christian Valdes, a chocolatier and owner of CMV Chocolates, starting Feb. 13 until the 15th.

The coffee shop is located at Kartilya ng Katipunan Park, Ermita, Manila and operates every day from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m.
