DIY Floral Ice Cubes

3 Materials
10 Minutes
When entertaining, why limit fresh flowers to just a vase or two? Why not add them to your ice cubes?!
When I entertain, I almost always place a vase of fresh flowers on the table. I love bringing a bit of the outdoors in. So why limit flowers to a vase or two? Why not infuse a bit of floral elegance into an unexpected venue? Like, say, my ice cubes?

This little trick is so incredibly easy. Snip a few blossoms from your flower bed, leaving no stem.
Then grab a cupcake tin.
Place a flower head, face up, in each cupcake hole. Then fill with water and freeze overnight. It’s as easy as that. And the next time you have friends over for a chilled glass of wine, serve it in style.

Suggested materials:

  • Cupcake tin
  • Fresh flowers
  • Water

    Are there any flowers you should not use......or maybe better...what flowers can you use?

    If you boil the water twice, boil, cool, boil it will freeze much clearer and you flowers will look like they are in glass. Learned that trick from watching the kitchen. Time consuming but for a special occasions why not.
