Ice In Watermelon Cooler
1/7
Fruit Frost

    A hollowed-out watermelon and some ice will chill rose and white wines to drinking temperature. Use the remaining fruit to top salads and sorbets or to whip up blended ice drinks.

2/7
Over a Barrow

    Give everyone the complete works. Here, this well-scrubbed wheelbarrow totes frosty beers, lime wedges, and salt shakers all in one load.

3/7
Blooming with Color

    Fill a window box with oversize bottles and it's both a cooler and a centerpiece. Matching bottles give unity to the look.

4/7
Punch Perch

    A new birdbath or one that is clean and lined with plastic is big enough to hold a punch bowl, cups, and lots of ice. Scattered blossoms liven up the roost.

5/7
Flower Power

    Straight out of the florist's cooler, these tin buckets come in a variety of sizes and colors. Intermingle with exuberant fresh-cut flowers.

6/7
Pitcher Perfect

    A patio planter does double duty as a receptacle for pitchers of party beverages. It might not be Planter's Punch, but the look will pack a wallop.
