Ice cooler molds set with roses keep Champagne, Wine and Spirits chillin’ in fashion. Not just for winter soirees, floral Ice Bottle Chiller Molds are just as beautiful in the summer!
Here’s the best part, for those of you with a garden or access to some freebie flowers, all you need to do is take a few snips of your favorite flowers, ferns, or leaves and voila, you have the makings for a gorgeous ice sculpture that will hold your favorite Champagne, Rose or summer bottle in style!
Last Thanksgiving and Christmas I was on a sculptured Ice Cooler kick. With New England temperatures consistently below the freezing mark, there was no need to worry about freezer space. I had buckets lined up outside with my creations! Well, that was then, this is now. Temps have finally risen (thank goodness!) and I have had to make some room in my freezer!
With a big dinner party on Friday night to kick off summer, I thought why not bring these ice babies back?!
I went out to the garden looking for the perfect pink flower and became transfixed by Madame Isaac Pereire, an antique bourbon rose. Ahhh true French love!
I think these ice sculptures turned out to be the best ones yet!
First things first, time to collect the bounty! Choosing Madame Isaac Pereire roses was easy. They are currently most plentiful in the garden (along with peonies) and boast a gorgeous pink hue color palette ranging from soft pink with hints of lavender to scarlet. Frankly, most any flower would be beautiful as long as they are not too big! Peony petals were plucked for the first layer of ice.
My favorite part is taking the mold out of the ice bucket as you have no idea how it is exactly going to look! Each mold ends up looking so different!
