For today's DIY Organizing Sunday, we are going to do something fun! Let's create a beverage station in your home. I love this idea! We have one in our home and use it all the time. The kids love it! It doesn't need to be big. It just needs to be functional for you. You can do what you want with it. You can add liquor only, or make it family-friendly with teas, hot chocolates, and coffee. This list is just to start you off. Feel free to customize it to your particular situation.
Below are several links to Amazon.com. If you click through and purchase something on Amazon, I will receive a small commission at no additional cost to you.
Just gather these items from around your house and find one place to put these things. If you want to create something like this and don't have lots of money, visit your nearby dollar store. They have many of these items.
How to set up a beverage station?
First, gather all the things you would like to add to the station. The list below will help. Add items to this list for your particular situation. For your convenience, I shared items I found on Amazon (affiliate) to give you a visual of what is on the beverage station list.

Here is an image you can use and share. I added spaces for you to fill in your supplies list. Enjoy.
Second, decide on a place that your beverage station will be. We use a corner of the kitchen away from the cooking area. This way, at parties we can have two different parts for the people to get their food and their drinks. It works beautifully. Make sure all your items fit in the space. Below I found some bar furniture from Amazon(affiliate).
Then, organize the items by type of beverage. All the mugs in one area. All the wine glasses in a zone, etc... Don't forget to add the supplies you would use here too, like, juice, tonic water, club soda, beer, wine, etc...
That's pretty much it. Feel free to print out the above list to keep in the area, so you can check off items that you may need.
Hope this helps you and your family create your beverage station. If there are things I missed on this list, please feel free to leave a comment below with the name of the item so others can see it too.
