Ice and flowers go great together! It's tough to beat the visual impact of an elegantly sculpted ice vase topped by a magnificent floral arrangement! We do many sculptures that are specifically designed to accept flowers; adding floral to a sculpture is often simple and can add a lot to the overall presentation. We will work with your florist so that they understand the sculpture dimensions and can prepare their arrangements ahead of time. We also encourage clients to ask their florist to work with us on sculpture presentations; even just at the base of a sculpture, floral can be a great addition to the overall look.

The floral/ice sculpture display was the result of a bride's request for her wedding reception at the Shaw Center in Baton Rouge. It required a little bit more coordination with the florist than usual for ice and flower combinations, but the end result was worth it!
The snowfill engraved "50" is actually frozen on the inside of this ice vase. Usually, snowfill engraving is done on the surface of the ice, but this vase was unusual in that it was assembled from multiple pieces of ice. So it was just as easy to put the "50" on the inside and make it last a lot longer. This was for an anniversary at Hattiesburg Country Club.
The creative planners at Imagine That! in Bay Saint Louis came up with the idea (and the fantastic floral arrangement) for this ice/floral palm tree. Although we've done this sculpture several times since, we've never had it with as beautiful a floral arrangement as we did at this first attempt for a wedding in Biloxi.
We've made this large ice fountain a couple of times for weddings at the Pavilion of the Two Sister in New Orleans City Park, but both versions looked very different from one another because of the floral decoration. This ice sculpture requires a little extra planning and a little larger budget, but the impact is worth the effort!
The ionic column vase is one of our oldest and most popular ice vase designs and here it's topped with a truly massive floral arrangement for a reception in the Blue Room at the Fairmont Hotel, which is now the Roosevelt in the post-storm New Orleans.
Quite appropriately, sunlight streams in through the window behind this ice vase engraved with the logo of Sunrise Assisted Living. This ice vase was one of two for their grand opening in Metairie.
Here you see one monogrammed ice stand topped with floral, but there were 8 of these elegant ice stands in addition to several other ice sculptures at this elaborate wedding reception at the Jackson Country Club in Jackson, MS.
This simple ice vase decorated a wedding reception at the Covington Country Club.
This presentation involved a complicated set-up because it required coordination between the ice sculptor, the cake person, and the florist. Usually, these providers all deliver to the reception at different times with the ice sculpture appearing last. This time, the ice for the presentation had to be there FIRST and the cake person and florist did their work once the ice pedestals were in place.
The bride and groom came up with an unusual and interesting request for their ceremony: they wanted a floral arbor supported with ice columns, to stand before them during their wedding ceremony. We were happy to oblige and thought it helped make for another beautiful wedding at Champagne Palace in Harahan.
A large floral arrangement sits atop our ice vase at a wedding reception at the Hilton Baton Rouge Capitol Center. The vase is snowfill engraved with a script "B." A matching ice vase sat at the other end of the room.
This a simple monogram ice sculpture with a latticed base at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans. The florist has placed beautiful flowers around the base of the ice sculpture, which really adds a lot to the presentation (and also hides the plastic display tray).
We're big fans of combining flowers with our ice sculptures; the results can be amazing! On more than one occasion, we've done large ice fountains that instead of overflowing with water, were overflowing with flowers. And often we'll create ice vases that are designed to support large flower arrangements. Sometimes, the arrangements are VERY large! (Your florist should watch the video at the bottom of the page to see how we recommend combining their floral arrangements with our ice vases.)
