This Viral Floral Champagne Bucket Mold Is Perfect for Mother’s Day — And It’s on Sale Now
I’m always on the hunt for gadgets and new tools to use in the kitchen. Items like ice trays that promise to make crystal-clear ice cubes or incredibly speedy cold brew machines always catch my eye (and my wallet). While I’ve never thought of my love of kitchen devices as a “problem” per se, my partner would probably say otherwise (even though he feeds my obsession just as much). I just like to be prepared for the what-ifs because you never know when you’ll need a self-sharpening peeler.
My latest infatuation when it comes to kitchen items? A Champagne bucket ice mold that’s the perfect mix of form and function, and will instantly brighten up your Mother’s Day brunch spread. Initially spotted on Instagram account @jensgatheringnest, the content creator showed off a beautiful, floral-filled showstopper, ideal for those looking for creative ways to add a little color to their tablescape.
The mold, which comes with both a stainless steel chiller bucket and ice mold, is easy to use and can be used in a number of ways. From fruit to flowers to leaves, nothing is off-limits when it comes to creating the centerpiece of your dreams.
Not sure where to start for your upcoming event? To recreate Jen’s version, simply gather your favorite flowers and arrange them to your liking in the plastic chamber of the mold. After placing the buds, fill the container with water and top it with the provided lid, ensuring it’s closed tightly to prevent spills. Place the chiller in the freezer overnight or until frozen solid, and then you’re ready to unmold with ease. It’s truly that simple. As one commenter noted, however, if you’re looking for a crystal-clear finish for your ice, you’ll want to be sure to boil your water and let it cool before filling the mold. And voila! A showstopping piece for any occasion.
Feeling inspired? You’re definitely not alone and I believe the possibilities are truly endless with this one. You could fill the chamber with citrus and fresh herbs or add food coloring to change the hue of the resulting ice. Whatever you decide to fill the mold with, the results are sure to be stunning.
