Cool Ideas for the Florida Heat

Let's face it, Florida is considered paradise, but it can be a rather hot paradise!  Often times that's when you get your best deals though... during the summer months.  It's a great way to save some money because it is off-season for events in Florida.  As we approach the summer months, there is no need to shy away simply because it's too hot.  Between good old fashioned air conditioning and these cool ideas, you'll beat the summer heat and impress your guests all at the same time! 

Consider using ice globes as centerpieces instead of the traditional floral arrangements.  The great things about these globes is that you can put almost anything inside them... pictures, themed objects, even flowers.  I had a bat mitzvah client who used these ice globes as centerpieces and because it was a sports theme, they placed inside plastic mini basketballs, soccer and footballs too.  It tied the theme into the centerpieces and really made a statement.

Ice bars are all the rage these days.  I had a wedding client who recently did one for their reception which had their monogram etched into the bar itself.  It was lit up with red accent lighting and placed inside a draped area (red of course!) and it was the talk of the evening.  Adding an ice luge for vodka martinis is a bonus that will impress most guests!

And lastly, don't forget about traditional ice sculptures.  They don't have to be swans or doves anymore.  Recently we did one for a client that was a vase and on top was the most impressive arrangement of fresh florals.  We placed this sculpture in the center of a seafood raw bar and it could not be missed.  Even grown adults couldn't resist touching it to see if it was real!
