There's something special about warm weather entertaining. The easy, breezy way a spring and summer gathering comes together makes hosting friends a joy!

It's fun to celebrate the season with natural elements that tell a story. When we gather as friends, Rosé is always on the menu! I wanted to share how I serve my favorite Dark Horse Rosé in my rose and lavender ice bucket that you can make and keep for a fun and festive party season.

Inspired by the Rosé wine popular in France, my rose and lavender ice bucket and rose ice cubes are pretty and high-impact decorating tools that you can use for any occasion.

DIY Rose and Lavender Ice Bucket

This floral ice bucket is an absolute stunner when it comes to party decor. With just a few affordable materials, you're ready to make the perfect serving piece for your bottle of Rosé.

Materials

  • Plastic bucket - A small, clean waste basket is a great size for your floral ice bucket.
  • Small plastic container - I used a 2 quart painter's bucket that I found in our garage, but you can use any circular or deep square food storage dish that's a little larger than the circumference of a wine bottle. Simply pop your Dark Horse Rosé bottle into your small plastic container to check the sizing. You'll want your bottle to be deep enough to stay cool, but still high enough to be visually appealing.
  • Rocks - Any size that's easy to manage works. You'll be placing these in your small container to weigh it down.
  • Rose buds and petals - Any color and size of roses will do here!
  • Lavender - I used dried lavender, but by all means consider your resources and if you have lavender growing in your yard or a neighbors, snip from the garden.

How To 

At least one day before your party, fill your plastic bucket with about 2" of water. Now place some rose buds, petals and lavender into the water and artfully arrange. (To get perfectly shaped rose petals every time, simply pull the stamen out from the bottom of the bloom. See photos below.)

Place this bucket into the freezer and let the water set for a couple of hours. 

You're going to be slowly adding roses and lavender to your ice bucket and will let your ice set a few times.

Now, with your 2" base of ice add a little more water, roses and lavender and freeze again.

Next, add your small plastic container to the bucket filling the container with small rocks so it doesn't float and remains secure as you place more roses and lavender between the outside perimeter of your container and inside of your bucket.

Place your bucket in the freezer and let set for the final time. Give it overnight if you can.

To remove your rose and lavender ice bucket from your plastic bucket, place it in a sink with warm water and gently pull it out. You can also roll the bucket under a warm water faucet.

To remove the plastic container from your ice bucket, simply remove the rocks and add a little warm water to the container to loosen it from the ice.

You're ready to serve your chilled Rosé!

To minimize melted water drips, place a cloth towel under your ice bucket on a tray or dinner plate. Add some roses to the perimeter for a pretty effect.

Enjoy!

Rose My Way

The beauty of Rosé wines is that there are many to choose from for an unlimited range of tastes. From sweet to dry, there's a Gallo Rosé for everyone.

The best way to find out which Rosé is right for your gathering is to take the fun Facebook quiz here. Just answer a few easy questions about when you'd like to enjoy your Rosé and you'll get a recommendation that's unique to you! 

For my Rosé soiree, I entered my preferences to enjoy hints of strawberry, under sunny skies with friends and discovered the fresh and delicious Dark Horse Rosé.

For more inspiration to celebrate Rosé Your Way, check out these Facebook and Instagram pages.

DIY Rose Ice Cubes 

Add a lovely touch to guests' glasses when you treat them with rose ice cubes.

To make your own, place a rose bud or petals into a large ice cube mold. I used 2" square cubes popular for cocktail mixing.

Add water to your ice cube mold and place the top of a rectangular plastic food container on top of your ice cube mold to hold your roses in place. If you don't cover the mold, your roses will rise above the edge. 

Let your ice cubes set overnight and serve with a glass of Rosé. Gorgeous!

Rose Wall

I had so much fun decorating with roses that I couldn't stop with the ice bucket and ice cubes! I used adhesive hooks to place rose stems on the wall to create a festive backdrop.

Try this technique with any type of bloom. I recommend trimming the stem to about 10" long and pulling most of the leaves off to make it easy to either slide your stem into the hook from the top or gently push into the side.

See a close up of the hooks I used below.
