The perfect beverage (i.e., tea) dispenser for fall

I'm really going to have to figure out how to shoot decent photographs of clear glass so that I can properly share some images with you all, especially of fun finds such as my new Pumpkin Beverage Dispenser, a bit of glassware I was surprised to come across at Walmart! (I haven't even taken the plastic wrapping off mine yet.) I will be serving lots of sweet tea over the Thanksgiving week, as we're hosting family twice and maybe even three times, so I feel completely justified in spending the twenty bucks (well, $19.84) that this cost. I actually saw it at Walmart in Carrollton two weeks ago, but I was in a hurry that day and didn't want to go get a buggy to wheel it to the front. I'd run by my local Walmart back home and grab one later, I thought. Except that the Walmart I went to last week, the one in nearby Peachtree City, didn't have these, and when I asked the associate there about them, she wasn't familiar with them.

So … on my next trip to Carrollton, I headed back to their Walmart, and they still had plenty of these on hand. Finding one had become a slight obsession by that point, as I can just envision fall tea parties where tea or tea punch is served from this pretty pumpkin. (I put a teacup in the photo to show its size next to the 2.75-gallon size of the dispenser.) The Walmart website shows these as out of stock, but the Carrollton Walmart still had plenty, so if you're interested, you may want to check your local store no matter what it says online.

A similar dispenser is available from the Sur La Table catalog here, for a few pennies more, in case some of you are interested. I can't wait to use mine!


  1. What a fun tea dispenser! I foresee that you'll get a lot of use out of it.

  2. I saw them at Michael's and was so tempted. It was even in my basket, however I put it back. Guess I will be rethinking that!

  3. This will be a great addition to your thanksgiving decor.

  4. I got this early in the season -- I have *loved* having it! And I was pleasantly surprised, too...not only does it hold a good bit, but the spout was completely leak-free, which is somewhat of an anomaly in decanters like that! We've used it a number of times and it gets compliments at every function. And even if you choose not to use it for a beverage, fill it with orange colored water and put some leaves and/or pinecones around it and you have an instant table center! :)

    1. Great tip, Denise! Thanks for sharing it!
