A great summer party has two key elements: great food and fun decor. And, truthfully, we believe that there are far too many adorable, fruit-adorned serveware options out there to be eating your meals on plain old paper plates, anyway. But, there is one category of summer entertaining that always falls short of aesthetically pleasing: the cooler. No matter how functional, coolers rarely match the summer motif you're trying to achieve — and, if they do, they're probably going to cost you a pretty penny.

Enter: La Vaca’s Minnidip Pool collection. You're probably wondering what a mini inflatable pool has to do with keeping your beers cold. Well, we're glad you asked.

Offered in a variety of summer patterns, these mini pools are actually coolers from Minnidip (a "designer inflatable pool" company), which hold up to 24 drinks at a time.

We're not trying to tell you what to serve at your next party, but we definitely think — whatever it is — you should be serving it out of these.

There are few patterns more quintessentially summer than banana leaves. Make your pool-side party pop with this pattern — it will perfectly compliment anything you fill it with, whether it's beer and wine, soda, water or popsicles.

For a more neutral splash of color, opt for the blush pink cooler, which can hold three bags of ice and 24 canned or bottled beverages of your choice. Plus, you can bring it into the pool with you, so you never have to hop out to grab a cold drink again.
