A butler's pantry was traditionally found in large homes and was a place silver and other serving items were stored. The butler often slept in these quarters in order to keep thieving hands at bay.
Now they can be found in contemporary homes as a small hallway between the kitchen and dining room. Even if your home doesn't have one, a single cabinet can be transformed into a "pantry" of sorts, housing all the party essentials. This can be a great place to store wine, your finest china and silver serviing pieces, and even fun napkins and other linens crucial for creating a fun and festive last minute soiree.
Here are some of my favorites.
Even an open kitchen shelf or free standing cabinet will do. Where could you squeeze on in your house?
