You are currently browsing the tag archive for the ‘rose ice cubes’ tag.

So, last night we went to my mom’s house for dinner… and she surprised me with a mock-up of the DIY rose ice cubes.   I should have taken a picture, but honestly, I was too busy taking pics of the food to show my brothers what they missed! (they live in Dallas and Napa)  And, by the time I thought of a picture, they were half-melted.

But, this is what we learned:

  • The ice cubes were cloudy so we either need to boil the water twice or get distilled water.
  • The small ice cubes completely melt in about 30 minutes (is it worth the effort?  won’t last past the cocktail hour?)
  • We need a bigger ice tray or some other tray, so we have larger cubes (also, bigger ones’ll last longer!)
  • Fiance suggested round cubes…. that would look cool.  (We’re thinking of freezing them in water ballons, but would that work? You’ll find out)

Any other suggestions to make this bad boys last longer or come out differently?

The ice cube tray has such small cubes! 


Thanks to Vintage Glam Weddings, I came across this romantic DIY detail…  And you better believe I’ll be incorporating these icy beauty’s into the wedding for an intimate and romantic feel.

I’m thinking of putting them in some sort of glass bowl or vase on each bar.    And, to keep the ice cold, I was thinking about getting some frozen marble slabs (you know the ones that keep ice chilled) to set them on.  Can you just imagine the look with some votives around it?  Who knows what I’ll come up with!  Any ideas?

And, I have to tell you, I came across Vintage Glam Weddings and immediately fell in love – and my mom is hooked too.

How fun, my mom, my BM’s and I will make ice cubes with roses and purple lisianthus’.   Thanks Vintage Glam!

About Me

I love my guy. I love my town. I could have a torrid affair with every cake, cookie and cupcake I come across. I love sharing a good bottle wine with good people! And, I truly enjoy blogging about wedding finds. Which is why...
