use a colander as an ice bucket


The first time I saw someone do this I had a small heart attack… I mean, it’s just SO genius how did we not think of this ages ago? I tend to set up self-serve bars at my parties and I always had a cute little bucket or glass for the ice but after an hour it was ice water and I was constantly refilling it.

By putting a colander on top of a bowl (in my case a vintage one) you can skip the ice water all together! This is a great one for summer parties when ice tends to melt at the speed of sound! ~Rachel
