5 cool serving ideas for summer treats
What’s better than spending time outside, soaking up summer? Well, not much. But why not save some steps, make clean up easier and maybe shoo away a few flies in the process? Here are 5 ideas that make porting our favorite edibles and drinkables outdoors a little more fun.
1. Salad in a Jar
Canning jars are great vessels for just about everything (like these Mason Jar Cocktails) – and we especially love them for summer salads. Dressing goes in first, so all your green goodies stay crisp until you’re ready to toss and enjoy.

2. Watermelon Slice Popsicles
Super easy… and super cute! Just add popsicle sticks and and you’ve got a healthy, kid-friendly treat at the ready.
3. Veggie Dip Cups
These are the perfect portable snack. Make a tray for a party, or keep a stash in the fridge for a good-for-you grab and go. It also solves the dreaded double dipping issue!
4. Muffin Tin Condiments
Serve all of your condiments – with just one trip from the kitchen and one dish to wash! Brilliant.
5. Mason Jar Cocktails
Filling the ice tub with cans of soda, water and beer is easy, but when it comes to cocktails, making something special can quickly become a sticky mess. Time to break out the mason jar cocktails! Use the recipe of your choice, fill it up and secure with a lid. All your guests need to do is grab one from the ice, sip, and smile.
