A party planner
must include ice on the checkoff list when preparing for an event.
How much ice, the type of ice, uses for the ice, the supplier,
delivery, storage, and cost are a few considerations. Events are
numerous and year-round. They include corporate events and banquets,
private parties for birthdays, graduations, weddings, gatherings for
sports and celebrations for holidays and festivals. Here are some
thoughts on planning to meet the need for ice for parties in Long
The Many Uses
of Ice at Parties
There is little
fun being at a party where ice is absent from drinks or from coolers
to keep canned drinks cold. Those are basic uses of ice at parties.
Ice is also important for ensuring the safety of foods that need to
be kept at low temperatures, such as seafood, salads and gels. Frozen
desserts maintain their integrity when they are stored with dry ice.
Dry ice can be used for staging effects like forming a creepy,
fog-like scene for a Halloween party.
An art display in
ice is a draw at any party. Ice carvings in their diverse forms
showcase the talents of ice sculptors. The carvings are often used as
centerpieces. Several sculpted pieces may be displayed around the
room. Carvings may take the form of ice bars or servers. Sculptors
require clear blocs of ice for carvings. Clinebell ice cakes are
completely clear pieces of ice and are made by using a commercial
Clinebell machine. The process usually takes three days to make two
standard 300 lbs ice blocks.
Ice luges are
also popular at parties. These are blocks of ice with one or more
channels cut for pouring drinks. Shot luges differ from channel luges
by the amount of liquor that can be delivered to the lips of the
partaker. The idea is to have drinks chilled as they pass through the
ice. It is a fun way to imbibe.
