  It could be the influence of Mad Men or Hollywood Glamour once again being in vogue, but Americans are enthralled with the art of the "proper cocktail".  In this day when everything is hurry scurry, it's nice to sit down and enjoy conversation over a nice beverage.  Of course the "Grand Dame of Home Decor Details", Bunny Williams would not overlook this key piece to "the art of living well" and addressed it perfectly when designing her line for Bunny Williams Home.  When I saw Bunny Williams Home debut at the Oct High Point Market, one of the niche categories in her line was an assortment of darling little "drinks" table.  As a society doyenne, Bunny subscribes to the belief that "every chair should have a table next to it to hold your drink".  I must agree! Since seeing Bunny's line, I have been more aware of these cute little tables for several reasons.  They can be easily moved easily from room to room or chair to chair and more importantly they are an adorable addition to any room! Who doesn't crave a cute, little table for holding the "much revered 5 o'clock cocktail" or after dinner drink?  Of course the drinks table doesn't have to be for cocktails, it could be a nice cup of hot tea or a glass of lemonade as well.  It's all part of the puzzle when addressing the "art of living well". Last market, I saw "drinks" table in many lines.  There are so many more options, than what I have curated here, but these are some of my favorites!  What's your favorite? Do you have a "drinks" table by your chair?  If not, you should think about the convenience of it and shop for one today! Perhaps I'll share some budget friendly options next!
