I’ve been wanting to put together the cutest little outdoor beverage table all summer long. But we’ve just had way too much rain, until now. The sun is shining, the rain is gone, and the humidity has broken.
So I decided to go thrifting in our attic to see what I could share with you this week for “Thrifting with the Gals“!
And it is there I remembered this thrifted table for two I found last fall and thought it would be so fun outdoors decorated as a beverage station. Thanks for joining me for thrifting in the attic today!
I started by making a jug of flavored water. Do you ever make flavored waters? I never had before.
I used what I had on hand to make this flavored water for my outdoor beverage table. Mint and cucumbers from our small backyard container garden, along with a handful of raspberries and blueberries. So good!
And be sure to check out this collection of favorite beverage recipes from my recent post It’s all about the Glass.
This Vintage Beverage Station
In fact, everything on this beverage table, including the table itself, was thrifted except for the water dispenser.
My mother’s little glass bowl filled with ice and her sterling silver spoon next to the flavored water dispenser is just the cutest. Clink, clink into the glass:)
I also added a bowl of strawberries and a few thrifted blue and white bowls to accompany the flavored water for visiting guests.
Our neighbor has the most beautiful limelight hydrangea tree here at our home in Maine. I snagged a few of the branches and decorated them in a thrifted tin vase.
And check out more of this table last winter decorated as a cozy fireside table and for coffee and with my mother’s Russian china pattern.
There’s just something about bringing an indoor table outdoors. Doesn’t it feel cozy, warming, and inviting as an outdoor beverage table?
Beverage Table Glassware
As the temperatures are cooling here in late August, I thought the colored glassware would be perfect. The amethyst and amber colors pair so well together.
The amber glasses were also my mother’s and I thrifted the amethyst glasses just recently. Because it’s all about the glass:)

How We Get Ella to Pose for the Blog
Here I moved the cutest outdoor beverage table next to the picket fence in our backyard. This is as close to gardens as we have here in Maine right now.
At some point, we will add more landscaping that is easy for us to maintain.
The birdhouses and benches beyond the picket fence were all made by my father over the years.
