Forget the bowl! The traditional crystal punch bowl can be… well… traditional. And though there’s nothing wrong with tradition, if you find that you’re looking to add a little more glamour and flair to your next cocktail party, consider this vintage style Apothecary Beverage Dispenser, from Z Gallerie. It has a metal spigot, so your guests don’t have to hassle with a ladle. It’s made of glass and can hold approximately 2 gallons or 305 oz. The fact that it has a footed base means it will take up less space on your table.

We also love the height it brings to a table setting, and could look great paired up with a few glass cake stands filled with hors d’oeuvres. Available for $49.95 here and in stores.
