Summertime has arrived, and it’s time to let the livin’ be easy ~ especially if you are livin’ by the water. Guess what? All of your posse are dying for an invitation to bask in the sunshine at your water’s edge. You know you want to share the largesse, but who needs the work typically associated with having company?
No sweat! Intrepid posse trend-spotter mFn has it all figured out for you. With a lovely new beach house off the North Carolina coast, she is excited to have people visit, but she wants to have a good time, too. Enter the inflatable buffet cooler.
mFn and her gracious husband can fill up the coolers with ice, salads, meats and cold drinks just before company arrives. Then the guests can simply help themselves. It’s even better if the company fills the coolers with the food and beverages. Either way, everything stays cold without guests traipsing in and out of the house (and that means you don’t need to slave away getting everything cleaned up inside if the guests remain waterside).
All the host needs is plenty of ice. mFn recommends buying the inflatable serving bars with a drain plug, so you can really keep the offerings on ice. Purchase a plain white one and have fun decorating for the occasion. As you can see from the photos, that’s just what mFn did for Memorial Day weekend.
I know that at least a couple of the posse are hosting reunions at their rivah places this summer. Wouldn’t these cooler bars be perfect to ease the load a bit? Put out two or three and maybe your guests will take the hint to help fill them up.
If hosting an outdoor party is part of your summertime plans, why not follow mFn’s lead. You really don’t even need to be on the water. mFn may not realize it, but she is a posse trend-setter.
