  • Step 1

    To display the champagne and cordials, we’re going to build homemade ice blocks and frozen chillers with holiday foliage, holiday fruits and spices, and holiday decorations. Exaco Ice Lanterns are a great product to use when constructing your ice bar.
  • Step 2

    Decorate the chillers and bowls with themes to incorporate different elements to the party.  I chose three themes: Holiday Foliage, Holiday Fruits and Spices and Holiday Celebrations.

  • Step 3

    When making the bowls and chillers, make sure that you are placing items into the mold that are small enough so water can freeze them into place. To prevent all the decorations from sinking, freeze the ice bowls and chillers in layers, it will take 3-4 hours for each layer.  Distilled water is best to use to prevent the ice from cloudiness. When ready to use, let frozen mold sit on the counter for 20 minutes and then wiggle it free.  To save for later use, place frozen chiller or bowl into a plastic zip-lock bag until ready to use.

  • Step 4

    For a more sophisticated look when it comes to displaying the liqueurs, cordials, and juices, use small bottles with corks or stoppers to display them.  The bottles you see below are from The Container Store and are also great for a hostess gift.  Add small tags to label what is inside of the bottle for your guests knowledge.

    Try different combinations and enjoy!
