Ice Sculpture Food Presentation
The food serving tables are another great place to enhance with ice sculptures. You can either keep a decorative piece, or make ice plates to serve salads and other cold foods from. This keeps the food fresh and the light angling in on the crystalline ice makes your food tables look resplendent. Just imagine the minimally colored or transparent ice plates and a range of colorful edible delights served aesthetically on them!
Getting to drink cocktail just out of an ice luge is irresistible. Place one or two of them on the bar counter – all your guests are going to love the experience. Drinks and ice art definitely go hand in hand!
Ice Sculpture Bottle Holder
Another way to keep drinks cold, in a most stylish manner; your bar gives you ample opportunities to play around with ice sculptures.

Bring a new twist to traditional wedding pieces by building a tiered cake of ice. As an icing to your ice cake, get your names engraved in beautiful fonts. Decorate your cake with colors, flowers and candles, and it will be the center of your wedding that your guests will be posing around to click photos with.
So choose a lovely day, a natural landscape, the perfect ice sculptures and a huge fire to enchant, and you’ll have a wedding to remember!
