Today I am really excited to speak to Clair Willsher of Ice Styling.
Ice Styling is the sister site of Global Ice Sculptures who create fantastic ice sculptures, ice bars, and vodka luges for every event.
Ice Styling now focus on all things table centre’s, in ice of course!
Clair gives us the goss on whats hot [ so to speak] in the Ice world,
“Well, here at icy towers, over the past year or so we have noticed a very definite trend, (keeping an eye out as we often do, you understand) in wedding table centrepieces.”
“It was all very similar, flowers, candelabras, flowers with candelabras or fishbowls, not that I’m knocking them, please don’t think that, but, well, being the creative souls we are, we thought we’d try something different.”
“Having been in the ice business for nearly two decades, we feel it almost runs through our veins.”
“With this at the front of our minds, we have developed a new and exciting concept – Table Centrepieces & Venue Decor made entirely from ice.”
“Always pushing the boundaries of design, we wanted to offer something different and out of the ordinary….. The Ice Styling concept was born.”
“Now, we understand that traditional decor is still hugely popular, and always will be, but you know, there are some brides, that like us, just wanted that something a bit different and finally after a few tentative attempts of mentioning ice table centrepieces, one of our brides really wanted to run with it as she was after all having a winter wonderland theme and well, that’s what we do best you know!”
“She came over to meet us, whom I hasten to add, anyone is welcome to do, our kettle is always on and more often than not we have biccies on one of the desks, bringing flowers from her bouquet and venue decor with her.”
“After chatting for a while, we got a feel of what she wanted, and this was the result…”
“These are our striking pyramids, measuring 58cm tall and designed exclusively for and by us here in our studio. Inside the pyramids we suspended in the ice the flowers the bride gave us, a single white rose, a blue thistle and some eucalyptus, the overall effect, I’m sure you’ll agree is just stunning, it certainly proved a talking point on her big day!”
“We were also asked to create a “Table Topper” something completely new for us I have to say, but again, we bashed heads and this was the result…”
“We etched the new married name of the bride and groom into the ice using snow so it stood out against the clear sparkling of the ice and suspended in snowflakes, again, keeping with the winter wonderland theme and perfectly complimenting the table decorations and chair sashes!”
“Here are some of our most popular designs!”
Thank you to Clair for sharing these utterly outstanding creations. Its always really good to think outside the box and these centrepieces breach a new level of cool !
My personal favourite is the Table plan, which has the ultimate WOW factor in its uniqueness, love it !
