Put pasta salad in jars with lids for an outdoor party/food gathering. - You could then fill large serving bowls from the dollar store with ice and set the jars inside to keep things fresh, but looking nice.
This would be great for "individual" fruit salads, macaroni salad etc for neighborhood block parties. Photo 1 of Picnic - Red & White Gingham / Birthday "Picnic in The Park for Tahlin’s Birthday Party"
Lavish picnic ~~ My grandmother and my mother often took us on picnics. Also our congregation arranged picnics, corn roasts, and baseball games, volleyball, swimming etc. at a wonderful park by the river.
