When it comes to throwing parties, it’s the little details that really count. It’s the personalised place settings, the custom-made themed treats, and the stylish DIY decorations that make your soiree a memorable one.  

With party season upon us, we’re prepping to be the hostess with the mostess and we’ve found the party hack that is guaranteed to win us that title five times over. Enter POPSUGAR Australia’s petal ice cubes (flowers frozen into square ice cubes)—the prettiest blocks of ice we’ve ever laid our eyes on.

To create them yourself, all you need is a large ice tray and a bunch of carnations. Place the flowers face down in the mould and pour the water until its one third full and freeze (this first step is so they don’t float out). Once the first layer is frozen, fill to the top and freeze again.

Top Tip: “To make sure the ice freezes clear, use boiled, filtered water — just make sure you wait for it to cool before you pour it into the moulds (place kettle in the fridge).

BYO ice bucket and a bottle (or two) of rosé and you’ll have yourself some very impressed guests.
