Plastic Cleaning Container
You may want to make a stop at the housewares department of your local store and pick up a plastic cleaning container. These durable containers have handles and are divided into compartments, so it will be easy to organize utensils and spices and have them ready anytime you need them.
If you would rather have all of your necessities at your fingertips, buy a carpenter’s apron for yourself. The large front pockets provide plenty of space for all of the tools you’ll need for your
Ironing Board Buffet
If you don’t have a picnic table or a patio set, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to serve your food outdoors with ease if you think creatively.
Your ironing board has probably been relegated to just the task of ironing in the past, but you don’t need to limit its uses. It can also serve as a portable buffet or a table for equipment when you’re barbecuing. Place the ironing board on a level, solid surface, and check to make sure it’s secure before you use it.
To make the board more stable, place bricks or bags of sand on its legs. Then drape a tablecloth or oilcloth over the board, and it’s ready for any outdoor serving ideas you can think of.
For those of you who are a bit more ambitious, you can make a table drape with pockets to hold all of the utensils. This can be simply sewn, and it puts all of the utensils at your guests’ fingertips.
I trust that you will be able to find one or two ideas that will help you organize your next outdoor experience. Some of my most memorable times have been ones I have shared with my friends and family outdoors.
