Adding Drink Cooler Troughs To Picnic Tables Is A Trend We Can Get Onboard With

Hosting garden parties is a great way to recreate a refreshing al fresco dining experience right at the comfort of your home. Sure, impressing your guests with a nice ambiance and great food is important. But their convenience should also be among your top priorities. And by that, we mean keeping all essentials within arm’s reach, most especially drinks. Apparently, integrating drink cooler troughs into picnic tables is now a thing. And it will surely elevate your outdoor parties at home.

Getting drink refills is always a challenge at outdoor parties. Aside from having to leave the table in the middle of an interesting conversation, it’s also almost always hard to locate the cooler. So, what you need is a table with a built-in beverage chiller compartment to keep your drinks cool and accessible for everyone. No more awkward excuses and interruptions from anyone who’s looking to get a second bottle! Simply reach towards the center of the table and grab a bottle without standing up and leaving the table.
