One Item Every Successful Entertainer Needs

One Item Every Successful Entertainer Needs

Renee is known for her parties.  I try to learn from Renee as often as possible! And I learned one of her secrets that has changed the way I entertain.

For years during parties I felt like I couldn’t relax worrying about getting the food out and then I was worried that I needed to put the food away so it wouldn’t go bad.  It was always taking me away from the rest of the party.

Until Renee let me in on her secret!

Here is what every entertainer needs to have at their disposal!

It is the best invention known to man: A beautiful serving dish with an ice container built in underneath to keep food cold for over 6 hours without worrying about ice melting into your food!

 

 

Memories are made when gathered around the table.

Are you reading for summer barbecues, parties and family gatherings? This is the ONE item every entertainer needs to be a success!

PIN ME!!

It has segments in it so that you can customize the food you are serving.

For example when I make coleslaw I take out all of the segments of the bowl.  But when I have four different cut fruits I add each fruit to a different segment and am guaranteed cold fruit for hours.

This isn’t JUST a bowl but rather a bowl and a cooler in one. The best part is that the ice doesn’t have access to the food so when it melts, it will not damage the food. Simply, replace the bowl with fresh ice in seconds!

How to Use the One Item Every Entertainer Needs!

  1. Potato Salad. I used to worry about taking potato salad to a family barbecue but now it can sit outside with the rest of us with no worries!
  2. Shrimp Cocktail. I love snacking on cold shrimp cocktail with friends and now I can keep it out with us safely through the party!
  3. Veggies and Dip. I love to keep veggies around for the afternoon so my family will snack on that instead of treats.  This is great because there is even a spot for the ranch dressing!
  4. Beach barbecues.  This is my favorite way to use this bowl.  When you are spending time near the water, use this dish to keep your food cold for 6+ hours!
  5. Cold Noodle Salads. When you have a busy night keep this bowl full of a cold noodle salad for everyone to eat as they come home from their activities.
  6. Fruits. The ultimate fruit salad is perfect with this bowl.  The container can adjust to the amount of fruits you have so it is a perfect rainbow fruit salad every time.
  7. Green Salad. No more wilted lettuce for you!  Cold, crisp lettuce happens all the time with this bowl.

The Perfect Gift for Mom or Just for YOU!

About The Author

Alison

The kitchen is definitely my favorite place in any home. I love cooking but I also love how it brings people together. Although we lived in different cities growing up, I consider Sugar City, Idaho to be my hometown. Now, my husband and I live in Meridian, Idaho with our three not-so-little kids. My life is filled with good food, friends, and family—and it’s even better when I can find a great deal!

    Depending on the season I have a couple go to items that I serve when guests are over. I must say, that the photos you included in the article made me hungry!

    That is such a great idea. Especially for outside parties. It’s very attractive too. Something I would definitely buy since alot of hot/cold containers usually aren’t. I think it would be so useful in the summer even just for salads.

      I generally use pottery or glass, but this bowl is pretty and won’t break. Nothing ruins a party faster than shattered glass!!!

    This is one nice product not only for parties but for family movie nights too. Perfect indeed for those fresh fruits and veggie sticks which I prefer to munch while still cold and crunchy.

    What a clever dish! One of my specialties to take to a picnic, pot luck or BBQ is my homemade potato salad. Even my son and my sister, neither of who even like potato salad, WILL eat mine! I am often concerned about the ingredient and the heat outside. This lovely dish would be the perfect solution!

    That is amazing! We love being outside with our friends during the summer and we always do a picnic. This will come in handy for sure!

    Wow! What an ingenius idea. Very impressed by y the simplicity and clever design. In Ireland we don’t have hot Summers so keeping food cool during Summer parties is not much of an issue. However I could see myself using it in hotter climates.k

    I definitely need this bowl! Such a clever idea. I can definitely use it, now that Summer is coming. It’s so practical, not only for parties, but for every summer day serving fruits outside! Thank you!

    That does look like a great idea! It can be such a pain to think of how to keep something like potato salad from going back. And wilted lettuce is so unappetizing! I will definitely keep this in mind next time I have a party!

    My go to item is the chips and dips bowl I received as a gift. I always have a big pack of tostitos at home so I’m always ready to entertain guests. What’s in my bucketlist for so long is a juice dispenser, the one with a faucet like those used in hotel buffet.

    What did people do before online shopping! It is so handy. I find big platters and bowls so handy. I just have white because it goes with everything.

    I think the potato salad & Shrimp Cocktail would be my go to items as an entertainer/host for the evening. It’s not messy. It’s delicious and easy to clean up afterwards.

    A bowl with an ice container is a must! As you mentioned it keeps everything looking fresh for the whole afternoon/evening. There’s always a problem to keep all food looking delicious all day long. Great offer 🙂

    This is pure genius!! I’ve seen a lot of dinnerware that keeps food warm, but it’s the first time I’ve ever seen one that keeps dishes cold. It gets especially sweltering in our part of the world so it’s hard to keep the quality of salads and appetizers when we’re entertaining. They would make a killing if they sell it here. Maybe I should buy a bunch in Amazon and sell it at a premium. Hahaha. Kidding. :p will definitely get 1 for myself though:) thanks for sharing:)

    This is a very good suggestion especially for party virgins like me. I have no clue what to do in this area because I have never thrown an adult party…LOL

      Even though I have thrown “adult” parties I still feel like a little kid. Having a bowl like this makes it adult for me! 🙂
