A beverage dispenser comes in handy when the gang arrives. Filled with iced tea, lemonade or another favorite beverage, the dispenser allows guests to help themselves.
They're available in a nice choice of materials and designs for any setting, indoors or out.
Once it's filled, you won't have to lift a finger. Your guests will -- but only to work the spigot.
