Ice sculptures take any event to the next level. Whether it is a simple ice luge Dallas party-goers incorporate into the festivities or it is an ornate ice sculpture for a wedding, these sculptures make a big impact.
A custom ice sculpture is the perfect functional conversation piece for your special event. They quickly become the focal point of the beverage table and add that extra something that makes an event memorable.
History of Ice Carving With a Purpose
There is evidence that the first recorded ice sculptures were born of necessity. In the 1600s in China, native hunters and fishermen, would carve lanterns out of blocks of ice and put candles in them to illuminate their way.
They became part of the party for the aristocrats in the late 1800’s. The first ice sculpture for party purposes was a Swan that was commissioned in 1892 to display desserts at a party for a famous opera singer at the time. Ice sculptures of swans became very popular moving forward. They are still popular today.
A gifted ice carver can customize a sculpture for any event. If you can imagine it, it can be carved for you. The ice carver takes about 3-12 hours to create your sculpture, so you do want to book your option early on.
Ice sculptures for wedding receptions are very popular. They are the perfect detail to make your wedding an event that is sure to be remembered.
What is an Ice Luge?
An ice luge is a unique way to chill drinks. It is a block of ice that has a channel carved into it. The beverage (typically a liquor like Vodka) is poured at the top of the luge. The beverage travels down the channel and either directly into someone’s mouth or into a glass.
Luges are a great way to really get the party started. They are great “ice-breakers” and get everyone involved in the event. They are fun, practical and highly functional. They last for about 3-4 hours depending on the environment that they are being used in.
If you have a wedding or another event coming up, don’t forget to get your luge or your sculpture to wow your guests. Order today.
