Hosting a summer party and planning to dine al fresco? Ditch the cooler of bottled water and use a pretty drink dispenser instead.
These two glass drink dispensers ($59 to $79) from Pottery Barn were inspired by vintage cocktail shakers. With tight-fitting metal lids, these drink dispensers can be moved around in your outdoor setting without worrying about spills. Love how you can see the lemon and lime slices! Pretty. Small dispenser holds 1.9 gallons. Large dispenser holds 3 gallons.
This Del Sol drink dispenser ($29.99) from Macy's comes with a sturdy stand. The nice thing about this design? You can refrigerate your drinks in the dispenser and then bring the dispenser outside to the stand when ready to serve. Holds 1 1/2 gallons.
This is quite a splurge, but I just had to share these floral, hand-painted, stainless steel drink decanters ($180) from Plum Party. They would definitely add a festive touch to your next garden party. Love the easy carrying handle, too. Holds approximately 6.5 gallons.
If you're worried about glass breaking, try this polycarbonate beverage dispenser ($33.99) from Target. This dispenser holds 3 gallons and has storage space for ice as well to keep your drinks cooler longer.
Another simple option? Just fill one or two of these lovely IKEA stoppered bottles ($2.99) with flavored water and place on each outdoor table. Best part? They are dishwasher safe.
Want to fill your dispenser with something other than ice water? Try ginger lemonade, sangria, homemade Italian soda, or a batch of old-fashioned fruit punch.
Do you have a drink dispenser at home?
