If water won't work in the fountain...what about ice?
So then, I thought of an ice bar.
Just kidding! No, what I'm thinking of involves filling the fountain with ice, and placing bottled beverages in it: San Pellegrino, Coke and Diet Coke (a Mama Bruschetta must-have), and the like. We'll have a bar outside for the duration of the cocktail hour, but this could be a cute way to providing easy access to non-alcoholic refreshment.
The only problem is, I'm lacking in the inspiration photo department. When I Google "fountain beverage display" I get a whole lotta these...
(Ack! The flowers! I didn't know you had to buy a corsage for your beverage fountain!)
...when what I'm really looking for is a larger version of this.
Have you seen any unique ways of displaying beverages? Or, do you think I'm totally off-base, and should utilize the fountain in another way?
