Make Your Own Ice Table To Keep Potatoe Salad, Pasta Salad, And Fruits Cold For Parties

I have built my own Ice Tables for Parties, they work great and keep everything cold for BBQ’s, Graduation parties, baby showers and anything else that you need. You can also make them foldable to bring with you anywhere. The cost of the Ice tables retail are around $260 or more but you can make your own for about $40 or less. Here is how I made mine, I don’t have a picture of mine anymore so I can’t show you the finished product but trust me it works great! Here is what I did to make the Ice table, that we used for many years.

* A Foldable Banquet Table that I received from Freecycle.org
* Scrap Wood the length of the sides of the table (Possible Freecycle.org as well)
* Screws

I took the scrap wood and screwed them into the top of the table so that it gave it higher sides on the top of the table. I screwed all the sides together so that it all came together to be a solid table. I then took a plastic table cloth from Dollar Bill in the color of the party theme and placed it inside the table. The Table Cloth would go over the whole table and cover the sides so that people could not see them. You then fill it with ice and place your items that need to stay cold in the ice. They will stay cold for hours for the party, if out of the sunlight the ice will last longer and you won’t have to worry about if you need to refill the ice. For Cleanup just take the food out tip the table and the ice and water will water the grass for you. Then you just fold the table up and put it away for the next party.
