Avoid a bottle neck with these simple tips.
Follow my tips to pull it off.

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.
