Entertianing Idea for New Years- ice cubes and ice molds

I was at a holiday party Saturday night, and I loved this idea for serving champagne or white wine which can easily be used for a New Years Eve party as well!

stacked ice cubes of different flavors

The hostess froze ice cubes and made ice rings with colorful fruit and berries! She used the ice to keep the champagne and white wine cold or it could also be used for non- alcoholic beverages such as Martinelli instead!! 

It looked so pretty and festive! 
I can't wait to try it for my next party ! 

She froze a holder in the middle of the ice ring to hold the champagne ! The ring was so frozen solid that it took a long time before it even began to melt.

These were the ice cubes. She froze berries, parsley, mint, lemon, lime, oranges, etc. So easy and looked so pretty and functional.

My friend also made a Christmas fruit tree using a styrofoam cone and covering it with silver sparkly wide ribbon . She then used toothpicks for grapes and strawberries and stuck them into the styrofoam. She also added some greens.

I wanted to share this great idea before New Years!

  1. Fruit in ice is fun. I have some flowers and things to freeze into ice and macro. Got the idea from a Macro Photography magazine. Very fun. Love them in cubes too. Great for drinks. Here's to 2024!

  3. Always love those fancy ice cubes! Happy New Year, Judee.

    Our Christmas starter was summer fruits served on sticks, stuck into a watermelon half. It looked very pretty, as does the ice bowl above.

  10. I love decorative ice cubes, and these are such a wonderful ideas. In the past, I made ice Luminarias. I really had to plan ahead to have enough of them, but they looked beautiful, because I had used greenery and cranberries in the frozen part, and the little candles illuminated everything. Happy New Year!

  15. Oh i love clever ice cubes! In summer I make tons of lemonade ice cubes, then add them to a dispenser of sweet tea to make Arnold Palmers on tap! Everyone goes wild, hahaa! xoxo
