5 Garden-Inspired Entertaining Touches

Chilled Frills

A few floral details can make a striking impact. Place tiny flower blossoms, petals, and mint leaves at the bottom of each compartment in ice-cube trays, and place in the freezer. In lieu of a cooler or an ice bucket, choose a large bowl, like the pretty ruffled one shown here. When the cubes are set, fill the bowl, and add a bottle of lemonade, sparkling cider, or Champagne to chill elegantly until ready to serve.
