table top grill – A Subtle Revelry

table top grill

Making miniature table-top grills is a really fun way to serve small foods at your next party. I designed these with simple materials you can find at a craft store and they come together in about 15 minutes. Once assembled set them up on your table between every 2-3 seats and serve small shish-kabobs, meat or use them as a table top marshmallow roast for dessert.

To make the grills, use one small terracotta planter, wire mesh and two miniature adjustable cake pans. Using a drill with bit attached drill holes into one of the cake pans. Measure the bottom of your planter and cut out a wire mesh circle to be placed inside. Stack two cake pans with the holes drilled pan at the bottom (for oxygen) and glue together. Set the terracotta planter inside the two stacked pans, fill with charcoal and top with the wire mesh. Light and enjoy grilling small foods (it’s fun!).

    never use charcoal inside, carbon monoxide kills:

    Use this for your outside patio instead!

    Love this idea and would love to use it for Valentines day but what did you “glue” the cake pans together with? And is the glue not a fire hazard?

    I think that I am a little confused…. whee did you drill the holes? and where do you put the charcoal- in the clay pot? or in the pans?
    Thank you… WONDERFUL idea! Can’t wait to try it!

      Hi Melanie, the holes are drilled in the bottom pan, just a couple for air release. The charcoal goes in the terracotta pots, that is where the fire is lite. hope that helps:)

    Hi Victoria! Love the idea! I was thinking about making these… Do you really think two mini pans are necessary or would one work just as well? It seems like the grill is really just the pot and the mesh and the pans are for appearance- is this correct or am I missing something? Thanks for your help!!
