A rotatable serving carousel is configured to provide serving elements extending from a centerpiece. Bowls or other useful items may be placed or connected with a carrier of the serving element. At least one arm extends from the second portion of the centerpiece to the carrier(s) and allows for rotation of the bowl generally horizontally over the table through the connection with the arm to the second portion. A user may manually push or pull on any portion of the serving element to rotate the bowl to a desired position relative to the table. The serving carousel may be provided with one or more serving elements and bowls, and the carousel improves access to these bowls while also lifting those elements off a tabletop surface to allow for more space efficiency in outdoor patio furniture using the serving carousel.


A multi-function outdoor patio table is described, the table including a base surrounding a contained space and a tabletop coupled to the base by a movement assembly. The tabletop is moveable relative to the base between open and closed positions to provide selective access to a functional/storage device within the base, such as a fire pit or an ice bucket. The movement assembly includes a slide rail assembly, a pivot linkage assembly, or the like such that a tabletop surface defined by the tabletop is disposed in a substantially horizontal orientation at both of the open and closed positions and also during movement of the tabletop between the open and closed positions. Thus, the tabletop surface can continue to be used in all configurations of the multi-function outdoor patio table.
