Essential Materials

Right Flowers and Foliage1. Two differently sized round silicon or plastic containers
2. Flower petals, fruit slices, herbs, and lime for personalising your bowl
3. A small weight to keep the smaller container submerged
4. The magic ingredient: water
5. Cocktail glassware, ice cubes, and extra flowers for the final arrangement

Step-by-Step Instructions

Floral Ice Bowl1. Pre-Freezing Setup
Arrange your chosen flowers, fruits, and herbs inside the larger container. Place the smaller container over the flowers, ensuring the perfect bowl shape. Pour water into the larger container according to your desired bowl size. Add a weight to the smaller container to prevent it from floating. Make sure there's some space between the two containers.

2. Freeze with Patience
Pop your containers into the freezer and let the magic happen. Allow the bowl to freeze for 2 to 3 hours, or for optimal results, leave it overnight.

3. Unveil the Beauty
Once the freezing is complete, remove the containers from the freezer. Gently pull out the smaller container while holding the larger one firmly. Carefully flip the larger container and give it a gentle pat to release your ice bowl creation. Make sure it holds its shape.

4. The Grand Reveal
Behold your stunning floral ice bowl! Place complementary flowers around it, fill it with ice, and add your signature cocktail. Arrange elegant cocktail glassware nearby, and your picture-perfect cocktail setup is ready to charm.

Pro Tips for an Extraordinary Centrepiece

1. Prevent melting by filling the ice bowl with ice cubes. Elevate the aesthetics by adding floral ice cubes.
2. Opt for an enduring centrepiece by using resin instead of water to create an inedible floral bowl.
3. Choose flowers, fruits, and herbs that match your cocktail party’s colour theme and cater to your guests' preferences. Roses, orchids, lavender, mint leaves, and lime slices are all excellent choices.
