A Great Outdoor Party Solution ~ Use A Colorful Serving Theme

Ice buckets with tops and metal scoop - your choice of colorHelp Keep Guests Cool Outdoors

Not everyone likes hanging out in the sun or lounging in a pool, so if it's a sunny, warm day, it's important to provide guests with a cool place where they can retreat. A large canopy or tent, or even some oversized beach umbrellas can create a breezy, shady spot where guests can mingle.

Also be sure to have plenty of ice available to keep drinks nice and refreshed. Try spreading a few of our Metal Ice Buckets throughout the backyard – they come in some of the summers hottest colors and can provide a great convenience to guests!

Children at the outdoor affair? No problem. Backyard Obsession offers great ideas for entertaining kids outdoors!

  • Our Dripstik is great on those hot summer days. Offered as a set of 4 in the summers hottest colors, they keep frozen treats or ice cream from dripping all over the kids, and fun to use too.

  • Our French Fry Cones are a wonderful idea to keep the fries all in one place. Since kids never seem to sit still when outdoors, add some colorful wax paper liners and fill with chicken nuggets for a portable and unbreakable solution.
