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.
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!
- 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!
- Shrimp Cocktail. I love snacking on cold shrimp cocktail with friends and now I can keep it out with us safely through the party!
- 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!
- 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!
- 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.
- 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.
- Green Salad. No more wilted lettuce for you! Cold, crisp lettuce happens all the time with this bowl.

Do you have a go-to item that you entertain with?
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’s what we love to hear Kim, thanks!
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.
I use mine all the time Berlin and have for years, treat yourself!
That is a really cool dish. i do a lot of entertaining, i will have to look into it. I love that it still looks elegant.
i love having people over for parties and try new things. I loved the tips that you gave . i will try and incorporate them in one of my parties now.
Such a great invention, great for BBQ’s and parties. Definitely need to keep an eye open for something like this x
What a terrific idea! I have to get this bowl for my summer get-togethers. Such an easy answer to an age-old problem. I love it when there is a simple answer!

I know! I wish I would have invented it!
Such a simple but elegant thing to happen! There really is nothing worst than half-chilled things that should be nice and cold. 🙁
I love to host parties for my friends and family. This beautiful bowl will go well with my BBQ set. 🙂
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!

I would probably use it for all the homemade stuff that I would be cooking in my kitchen!
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!

I love the list. This is why I love the warmer months
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.
Sounds like you are set Roselle!
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.
Me too Bella, but the clear acrylic is perfect with it too!
Wow!Everything looks delicious, I can use some of it this coming Mothers day!?
Hope it’s a super happy one Joy!
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.
We are 100% with you on those choices Debbie, thanks!
That is a great bowl for a good salad. I would love to put different chips and dips on it though. 🙂
You can use it for almost anything Neri Ann!
This bowl seems really useful. I’ve actually never seen something like this before. Food is a very important part of a party and it is crucial to keep it fresh for everyone. So thank you for this tip. More power to you!
They really do work so well Liezel, thanks!
I like how it works! This is definitely a must have for all types of parties, indeed. I wish we could get one here local.
We adore how Amazon gets it right to our doorstep Zwitsy! Is that an option for you?
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 🙂
Love this article!! 🙂
We love having you Abby, thanks!
What an awesome idea I would never figured out. Sometimes the simplest thing is the best. BTW the bowl photo looks really edlicious. I need to buy some of these, they will be very heplful in the summer.
It’s very pretty and keeps things nice and cold. Ive used mine so much Argell!
We have a few bowls like this and LOVE them! They are great for outdoors and for taking to potlucks and gatherings.
So nice to hear Bernadette, thanks!
I know this post is about the bowl which is a great piece, but wow on that table setting. It is beautiful. It makes me want to have an outdoor tea for my mom, granny and girlfriends.
Thanks Ty, for coming to our cyber tea party…Alison is so talented at putting things together for us!!!!
That’s a really neat idea, you can have the food there whilst you interact with the guests instead of rushing off all the time.

Love this idea! I know that my grandma have this bowl for her visitors only.
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:)
I can’t wait to host a gathering for family and friends. Would love to use the gifts that I received to my late mother-in-law. Looks similar to that pretty bowl.
It is perfect for family gatherings! Glad you liked it, Alaine!
This looks like an awesome product for Floridian weather. I am going to check this out. Thanks for sharing this post with us!
looks like such a great bowl for parties , love that it has sections!! I may buy this! Your salads looks super inviting!
That is a cool bowl. Is it possible to get it in Kenya? http://giiybu.blogspot.com
Hi Alison and Renée,
I would even use it for a big breakfast as well! It definitely looks useful. Thank you for the review!

Such a great invention! Where has it been all my life? I think it’s great for so many things, especially since summer is coming 🙂

That bowl of shrimp is my kind of bowl that I would like to snack on while watching my favorite TV shows.
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! 🙂
