What is the first thing every good hostess offers her guest? Something to drink! Make things easy on yourself by filling a large glass drink dispenser with water ahead of time so guests can help themselves both as they arrive and throughout the party.
Look for a versatile dispenser that is understated and elegant so it can dress up or down and fit seamlessly with a variety of party themes. We promise a quality drink dispenser is a good investment — it’s like having a third arm and definitely no place to skimp since nobody likes a leaky spout.
Our pick is this gorgeous Glass Drink Dispenser from Pottery Barn. The sturdy metal construction and thick glass will be ready to celebrate with you again and again. Plus it comes carefully packaged in foam and double-layer cardboard, which you’ll want to save for securely storing and transporting.
For most events we like to set out two dispensers — a big one for water and another filled with a special drink that coordinates with the party theme. So we love that the drink dispensers from Pottery Barn come in a coordinating small and large size.
