Tis’ the season of love & bling! The perfect time to be kicking off a new Wedding Wednesday series. I have been so excited to share more ideas relating to weddings, engagements, bridal showers, and anniversaries here on the blog, so we’ve developed an entire series that will run most of the year. Every Wednesday we are partnering with a beloved wedding business to bring you fun and creative tips, tricks and ideas to use in your celebrations of love.
Kicking off this series today I’m taking inspiration from the beautiful vintage engagement ring selection over at Eragem. I’ve recreated a few of my favorites into ice cubes! There has been a long standing passion on this blog for making fun ice cubes and this dose of bling on ice is an easy way to liven up an engagement party, shower, or wedding toast. Clink… Clink… Bling… Bling…
To make these engagement ice cubes I used this Diamond Ring Silicone Ice Cube Mold and these colorful smoothie recipes.
- Mix the drink of choice: pink dyed juice for a glass of pink champagne, or smoothies for a thick and colorful ring.
- Pour the juice into the ice cube tray mold and allow to freeze fully.
- Remove the ice cubes and place the finished rings on a cookie sheet covered in wax paper. This allows you to continue making ice cubes in the tray. Make enough for the entire gathering and have your toast served in bling inspired engagement style.
As long as we are going to be making bling out of ice, your real ring should be just as pretty! Let’s talk about engagement rings for a second. I have a basic princess cut ring that I still love even 13 years later (nearly 15 years from the day we got engaged). It is classic and timeless.
Sometimes it can be hard to decide on that special ring that will be both beautifully to trend today and also still adored on your 20th, or 50th anniversary. I’m so excited to be partnering with Eragem on this fun post. They sell the most beautiful vintage and second hand engagement rings that are gorgeous for really affordable pricing. Although, I love my ring – if I had to choose again, it would definitely be the Pink Tourmaline. Isn’t it just gorgeous? I love the idea of buying a vintage ring because you get a ring that is beautiful and one you know will stand the test of time.
