Of huge importance when it comes to summer entertaining is keeping your food not only away from bugs and fly-aways, but also keeping it chilled under the hot, hot, heat. Now, if you're spending a day at the beach or having a picnic at the park, you can surely keep your menu items in a rolling cooler on ice.
However, if you're hosting a house full of people in your yard, by the pool, or on the deck — what's going to keep your serving platters full of seasonal ingredients fresh and cold? Summer favorites like dips, salads, and cocktails are all at risk of getting soggy, watery, and spoiled if not taken care of properly, which is why Sur La Table's collection of serving ware on ice is brilliant for summer hosting.
If you've got a cocktail party in full swing, keep your garnishes refreshing and crisp with a four-section divider that sits on ice and has a lid. The same concept rings through with a salad bowl, dip-size bowls, and a two-sided server — all with metal bases sitting on ice surrounded by a plastic lidded container.
Add these pieces to your summer serving ware collection for one successful party after another this season!
