"Hey, waiter - there's a flower in my cocktail!" This is a great party idea! Prove that you're the hostess with the most-ess, the ultimate party planner, when you serve your guests drinks with stunning floral ice-cubes. Yes, ice-cubes with small flowers or flower petals frozen within them. Try it for your next party or gathering. This idea is perfect for a showers, christenings, weddings, Christmas, or just about any special occasion. I also like to pile them up in a clear glass wine or champagne cooler to serve. This is a great example of how you can actually incorporate party decorations into the food you serve, so the food and the decor merge and compliment one another.
Drop floral ice cubes into your guest’s glasses, or fill your punch bowl with them.
Make sure you only use edible, organically grown (non-toxic) flowers. Rose petals, geranium petals, violets or small pansies are ideal choices, and that they are free of pesticides and traffic pollution. You can also use the flowers of fresh herbs, and drop them in to chilled soups for the summer - they make a wonderful finishing touch.
