My Mackenzie-Childs Knockoff Beverage Dispenser

I am in love with this beverage dispenser.
Yes, in love!
I would probably hug and caress it if I owned it.
The price tag is $495.00
(insert sad, poor face here)

SO, I did what I do best.
I created a knockoff:

I bought an inexpensive beverage dispenser at the CTS for $10.00 and painted checks on the lid.

It certainly can't be compared to the $495.00 original, but it will coordinate with my Courtly Checked pieces for the holidays.

I needed to raise the jar so that I could fit a glass under the spout, so I pulled out my small compote:

The jar fits on top perfectly:

Oh, and this is how I convince my husband that I just saved $485.

Now I just have to fill it with some wine punch!

Have you been drooling over the newest catalog?
