My daughter gave me a huge glass drink dispenser (Pier One) for Christmas and I LOVE IT but wasn't sure where I was going to store it. It's so pretty I decided to put it out on my breakfast bar. Here is my "before" picture with the Christmas stuff still on it.
I have mentioned before that I don't have a mantel in this house so I substitute my breakfast bar! This reminds me of that saying about lemons and lemonade so I went with it!
I gathered together all my "lemon" items starting with faux lemons (and a few limes thrown in for contrast). I sat the dispenser on an oval wooden tray (Villeroy and Bock Outlet) covered with a cloth napkin (Tuesday Morning). The green dish, candle holder, olive oil container and pitcher are all from Ross.
Oops, a candle that's never been lit. Isn't that bad luck?
When my daughter bought the dispenser they were all out of the chalkboard tags but I found one recently (on clearance!).
I can't wait to mix up some yummy drink to serve in my Christmas gift, but for now I am enjoying it as is. Do you have one of these? What kind of things have you served in it (besides the usual!)? I would love to hear from you!
I am linking up to the party at Metamorphosis Monday hosted by Susan at Between Naps on the Porch. And be sure to visit my sister at Creating Wonderful Spaces!
