How To Diagram a Winning Beverage Station
avoid a bottle neck with these simple tips

The 411

Create a space on the deck or in one area of your tent
specifically for ice cold beverages.

Beverage carts, wagons & potting benches make wonderful options.
Ice down drinks in party tubs or pull out the wheelbarrow
for a bit of backyard charm.
The only things you’ll water from the wet bar of melted ice
will be the green grass.

Organize plastic cups, tumblers & melamine glasses on trays for easy access.
Have a separate ice bucket with a lid for fresh ice to cool down refreshments.


Paint containers in team colors for an extra bit of school spirit.
Beverage napkins with fun sayings add charm to celebrations.
