Ice is one of the most elegant and beautiful ways to express art. This is why ice sculptures are very often seen at very large or upscale events. Because the materials are easy to get, it's beautiful during the event, and easy to rid of after if need be. Many hosts are finding themselves looking into ice sculptures because they are so lovely, and inexpensive compared to many other event attractions.
Birthdays become a bash with a lovely sculpture in the room. Though they look delicate, these sculptures are for all ages to enjoy. For kids, there are options for small creatures like insects, to bigger options like trucks and trains. Adults will also have a fun time picking out a sculpture that relates to them.
Birthday numbers: So, have you ever wanted a giant number displaying how old you are turning? Well when those numbers are made of ice, they are even cooler. Whether you are turned 4 or 40, a huge block of ice in the shape of numbers is going to look really cool during your party. Of course, these could be any numbers you'd like, as well as some other creative ideas. Such as expressing how old the person is through math or roman numerals.
Think that ice sculptures only have to be for black-tie affairs and 50th birthdays? Of course not! How about a 21st birthday party? Say hello to the luge option. With the luge option, you can actually have your drinks poured THROUGH your sculpture! Imagine taking an ice-cold shot from your sculpture. Not only refreshing but also fairy innovative and fun.
A fisher might like to take a drink from a fish sculpture. While a golfer may drink to be poured through a hole in the green. The options are truly only as limited as your imagination.
Buffet Enhancement: Have a buffet? Well, have your coordinator set up a sculpture as an enhancement to it. Maybe two. Everyone loves grabbing lunch or dinner and admiring a beautiful sculpture as they do so. Not to mention it will enhance the atmosphere, creating a very elegant ambience.
A cool idea might be to have a sculpture in the shape of the main dish. Or a giant desert item right next to the dessert table.
Centrepiece: Draw everyone's eyes to your sculpture by making it the centrepiece at your party. Centrepieces can often set the tone for an entire area of the party. Where in other areas, people may get a bit loud or rowdy, an ice sculpture of your favourite building or animal can bring a serene presence to the mood.
Or you can make sure your friends get as loud as possible by providing a centrepiece luge and having a contest to see who can last the longest. Ice sculptures really offer the best of whatever situation they are placed in.
Space is not an issue when it comes to these sculptures either. They can be put almost anywhere to accommodate for other activities. To really get the most out of your sculpture though, you'll want it where everyone can see it; or use it in case of luge options. That being said, buffet and present tables, wishing wells, stands, cake and dessert tables can even be used to store your amazing talking point for your party.
Ice sculptures could be just the thing to bring that extra wow factor to your next birthday party, or one you may be planning. Not only are they a lovely addition to any birthday, but they last for up to 7 hours. So start thinking of what ice sculpture you'd like for your next party!
