A Beverage Station + A Delicious Summer Drink

Doesn’t it always seem like there is never enough counter top/table top space when entertaining? A fun, simple fix to this is to create a beverage station. A place to store cups, napkins, and the must haves for your signature drink.

I grabbed this cart and everything on it (minus the alcohol, limes, lemons and flowers) from World Market. I also chose this bench from World Market.

Dining bench

It is actually an outdoor bench, but I have been dying for a bench at my dining room table. I love the industrial look of it and lets face it, if it can stand up to the elements–it can stand up to my kids. A dining bench is great for entertaining. Lots of folks can pile on and it saves on space and helps eliminate the “chair pull-out effect”. You know, when your dining space shrinks because all the chairs are pulled out.

The pillows are World Market too. The floral one is actually a cloth napkin from World Market turned pillow.

To mix this yummy drink called the “Lorini” throw in 1 oz of Gin, 1/2 oz of Campari, 4 pieces of lime, Mint Leaves and top off with Lorina Pink Lemonade.

It has been so long since I mixed a drink. This was such a fun drink to relax with on a Friday summer night.

Hi, I'm Megan--the crazy mom of three behind this blog. Please don't be intimidated by the name. Note it doesn't say BALANCED Home. We hardly have it all together, but together we have it all. Or at least that is what I tell myself. I love rearranging, decorating, creating, crafting, celebrations, family, and holidays. I share a little bit of all of that and more on Balancing Home. I am married to my college sweetheart (Is that a thing? Well now it is.) and he is a very talented designer. I use him for his skills so I can offer up sweet printables to all of you. If you want to learn more randomness about me or my blog, stop by my about page.
