Top picks for outdoor parties & picnics

It's December! The social season - everyone wants to get together and catch up before Christmas :)

Here in Australia it's also summer, so a lot of our get togethers are held outside - parties in the backyard, picnics by the lake... and don't forget Carols by Candlelight coming up!

So today I'm sharing my top outdoor party or picnic picks - these babies will make your outdoor celebration nice and easy:

Just stick them in the ground and they'll hold your wine bottle and 2 glasses steady!

Folds up into itself and closes with velcro - very handy to carry with the handle!

has a snap on ice pack in the lid to keep everything fresh and a cup in the middle 
for dips or yoghurt - very handy :)

It has wheels, a handle, and 4 cupholders on the lid! 5 Star picnic :)

I think my husband would love this for our backyard 'bar' - looks great, useful, and it's on special this week down from $149!

Tell me what you take to outdoor parties - what would you never leave home without?

  1. I love Coleman's cooler for parties they are indeed reliable for parties, but will also consider Coleman's portable grill its very useful and convenient to use too.

  2. On the esky theme .... Fridge to go roller bag. You dont buy ice like traditional eskys. There are 3 panels you keep in your freezer. Keeps items cold... And I mean fridge cold for 8 hrs. The wheel section comes away from the cooler bag so both can be collapsed and stored flat so great for small spaces.we use for park, picnics and food markets - awesome.... And no I dont work for the company - I just own one!

    1. That sounds really good Fiona! Where can you buy them from?

    2. They are Great. We r about to go on holidays and taking it for our 2 hr drive. or
      Howard storage sell fridge to go lunch boxes but not the esky bags.
