Holiday Ice Sculptures for Summer Events
The summer season ushers in summer events and holidays! From summer kickoff parties to graduation celebrations to 4th of July barbecues, summer is the time for getting together and enjoying the sun (or the air conditioning!). No summer event is complete though without an ice sculpture!
Ice sculptures are a unique way to bring a cool element to summer events, both literally and figuratively! Whether it’s ice sculptures of the Statue of Liberty, Mount Rushmore, the American flag or a summer mascot, there are endless ways to customize your ice sculpture to whatever you are celebrating.
Independence Day is the perfect time for an ice sculpture! What better way to celebrate 4th of July than to have an ice sculpture that packs a punch? Whether you display it at the food table or as a focal point in the center of the room, having an ice sculpture automatically elevates the overall design and vibe of your summer event!
Summer Themed Ice Sculptures
The ice sculptures for summer events don’t stop with 4th of July! No matter if you’re having a summer wedding or a poolside party, we have the perfect sculpture design for you. Summer events call for summer icons, like flamingos, swans or even mermaids, and we can handcraft them all!
Don’t forget that here at Full Spectrum, we can engrave just about anything in ice. That includes your corporate logo, wedding monogram, or any other desired text or image. If you can dream it up, we can create it in ice!
At this point, you’re probably thinking, “How long do ice sculptures last?” It is summer in Texas after all! We hear you and we’re here to tell you not to worry. Indoors, ice sculptures can typically last 5-6 hours and outdoors under shade, they can last about 3-4 hours, plenty of time for a full wedding reception.
All of our ice sculptures include the proper display equipment, including a display tray for the sculpture to sit in with crushed ice, a drain hose, and a drain bucket. We provide these so you don’t need to fret about any runoff water. As a good rule of thumb, the finer details of an ice sculpture will melt away with time, but the sculpture will retain its design integrity overall.

Cool Food Displays for Summer Events
Besides ice sculptures, what is everyone’s favorite part of summer events? Food!
Seasonal summer delicacies, like a raw bar or caviar, are ideal to serve at summer events. Both light and refreshing, cold dishes like these are great for cooling your guests down while still being substantial enough for a meal.
They also look wonderful on ice! There is no limit to the amount of designs we can come up with for food display ice sculptures. From a seafood tower to ice bowls in various sizes to a caviar display, we can help jazz up your summer event’s food table. If you have specific sauce or accoutrement bowls that you’d like to use, simply give us the dimensions and we can create custom ice holders for them!
Food display ice sculptures are both functional and aesthetically pleasing, which is why these are perfect for summer events and always a crowd favorite!
