A buffet of water

I've just come home from Art With Heart, an auction of art to benefit Safe Alliance (formerly United Family Services). Held at Founders Hall uptown, around 650 guests were there to admire - and bid on - an impressive selection of art donated by individual artists and galleries including Elder Gallery.

I'll blog about the party later, but for now I wanted to share one detail, a beverage station, that  I really loved. Especially if it inspires you to include a version of it at your Super Bowl party. The station had three clear glass beverage dispensers filled with water, ice cubes and slices of either lemons, limes or cucumbers. Guests poured it themselves into stemmed glasses, a more elegant touch than cups. Large bowls filled with lemons and limes decorated the table.

For a more low-key home version, choose just one flavor and add it, and some ice, to a glass pitcher filled with water. Have wine glasses set out so guests can serve themselves.

To go along with these we have flower wedding painting a house portrait or many other types of family painting.
