I love having company.  And it was so much fun to work on my food displays.  Im certainly not much of a cook, but who says you have to be a great cook to have some fabulous looking food!  
These were the containers I used for our liquid lunch...ha!  The one in front was originally a light fixture.  Whod of thunk! The one to the right was a lab beeker, and the in back one believe it or not was a perfume mixing container.  Dont worry.  I made sure I cleaned it extra, extra good!
These pieces have come in mighty handy over the years.  They worked perfectly to hold these round bottom vessels.  
Ive got all the fixins for the sangria!
To be able to serve the sangria, I added a wire handle, and a wire flower for decoration.  Now aint that mighty perty!  
The pink lemonade I served up in a light fixture!! 
Cant forget some good plain ol water!

This is so much more interesting then your everyday pitchers, dontcha think?  Oh, and by the way, the flower vase is a wine decanter.  Cant use anything for its intended purpose, now can we :-)
And to go along with the drinks, I guess we have to serve food.  Ha!  So how about some Figaro Flatbread!  One of my favorites!
So whats for dessert?  Some simple shortcake with fresh fruit.  Yummo!

Sometimes serving up your favorite drink can be so much more fun served up in an out of the ordinary vintage container.  I was having a few guests over for lunch and decided to serve up some sangria for us wine enthusiasts, with some pink lemonade for the  teatottalers, and even some good old fashioned water.  And I can tell you, it was much more interesting using vintage to display everything in!

It might be only 8:00am but I could go for a little sangria with my eggs! Ya only live once...!!!
Great bunch of ideas, Lani.
