Ice bucket with champagne

We all use ice buckets.  We use them outside, inside, on picnics and at the beach.  Ice buckets are useful, but they can also be fun. A great ice bucket makes a great hostess gift.

I love this nautical blue anchor three-quart ice bucket.  7.8” x 7.8” x 7”   $40.00.

 This Napa Home & Garden thermal lined rattan ice bucket has a nautical feel. It’s 8″ x 7″ and comes with tongs.
