When I had to decide what to get for a review from Plow & Hearth it took me much longer then normal. Plow & Hearth is one of those sights that until you actually start going through the pages do you realize that you want one of everything and narrowing down a selection is nearly impossible- and I didn’t. I narrowed my choices and let the PR rep pick because I couldn’t. I will definitely be back for future purchases. In the spring I plan on doing some decorating for our house. We haven’t really decorated since we moved in and I’m ready to my house to be a home. I saw so many things that would help with the process on Plow & Hearth.
This time of year though I’m getting ready to entertain! Actually my entertaining has already started! I actually have entertained twice so far! This is the first year that we started decorating the day after Thanksgiving and I can’t wait to let it continue. The hardest part about having lots of people over is making sure everyone is well taken care of. In the winter you entertain inside so there aren’t big coolers laying around that people feel comfortable going into, our fridges seem to make people uncomfortable it seems. Even for closer family. I knew when I saw the Cold Drink Dispenser it would be great to fill, leave, and let guests fill as needed.
Fill This Drink Dispenser And Forget It
Park our three-gallon Drink Dispenser in any convenient spot – indoors or out – and let family and guests help themselves to refreshing drinks. Great for tea, lemonade, fruit drinks or your favorite crowd-pleasing beverage. Unbreakable polycarbonate dispenser will withstand hot summers outdoors as well as holidays and other indoor celebrations. Single handle dispenser keeps things sanitary. Hand wash.
Size 3 gallon capacity
10-1/2″ dia. x 18″H
Hand wash all the pieces by hand. Make sure to fill the base up with ice before you start. Once you fill it up you won’t be able to life it. Make sure it’s level. I recommend moving it around and go under versus over. The top doesn’t screw in it just rests on so you don’t want to give it any excuse to tip.
I had a bunch of people over last Wednesday night and this was a great way to leave a drink out for everyone to help themselves too. It did end up leaking all over my counter and I needed guests to help me empty it and get it over to the sink as quickly as possible while others grabbed towels and tried catching it as it poured out. The problem isn’t actually the device but the valve. You have to install the washers just right and the only directions were on the plastic bag I had to rip open to get the pieces out of that was smaller then a snack baggie. Before I realized I didn’t have paper instructions they were gone and I put them on wrong which caused the leaking. I played with it once guests left and realized it was due to my error but more clear instructions that could stay with it would be great. Since you don’t use it often I’d forgot by the next time I’d use it. Now that I know what I did wrong this will be perfect for our summer parties!
Runner Is Reversible
On one side, this table runner features a festive green and red plaid that strikes the holiday spirit; on the other, it’s decked with snowflakes, snow-mittens and a snowman. A versatile addition to your holiday décor, and a great gift idea for the holiday hostesses on your list. Polyester. Machine washable. Imported.
Look how bright the colors are in this runner! When I saw it I may have known I loved it but I hadn’t a clue as to where I was going to actually put it. I really wanted to make sure it had the best possible spot it could. The details are perfect and the top isn’t forgotten. It’s not so bust that it over takes the area either!
This year I’ve really been into my dining area. It’s by far my favorite room right now. I needed some storage space and hubby was against getting a hutch so we settled and agreed on a sofa table. Sounds odd but works perfectly.Don’t mind the frames, I couldn’t find a good spot to put them while I used their hooks for Christmas decor. The Reversible Snowflake Table Runner is the perfect finishing touch for this room. It lets me put items I don’t normally put on the wood since I know the soft material will protect it.
