I ran across this portable salad bar in the LTD Commodoties catalog and loved it! Lots of possibilities.
It's a great size: 4.5 feet by 2 feet. Great size for a picnic table.
Just blow it up, fill it up with ice and there ya go. Instant salad bar or regular bar.
Sure beats serving drinks out of ugly coolers, tubs or bins.
You could really dress this up with fabric. Lay a large piece of fabric on the table (under the bar). Blow it up. Bring the sides of the fabric up and maybe twist as you go. Bring the ends up over the side and lay them inside the bar. Weight it down with the ice. An easy way to color coordinate your bar to your decor and hide the plastic.
And it doesn't have to be used as a bar. You use it to be the base of a large floral centerpiece or be the drip tray for an ice sculpture. Also, great for tailgates!
Only $18.95 and it comes with a cover! Makes a great gift too! Stock up for summer!
