Ice lanterns

Whilst the UK has been deluged with snow this week, we have had some quite unseasonably warm weather in Alberta, with highs of 9c on Wednesday.

With a couple of gophers already out of hibernation, there has even been some reckless talk of an early spring... but there's probably a few more surprises left this winter...

Last night we had another Murder Mystery Party, this one was set on board the SS Titanium, with the murder victim having been found atop an iceberg.

With the overnight temperatures still pretty chilly and an iceberg central to the theme, I thought I'd make some ice lanterns. You can see a photo of one above and there are more pictures of them here. For the uninitiated there's also a simple step-by-step guide to making them here. They make great simple free table centre pieces.

To complete our theme last night I also printed these table mat covers. So, after all the preparation, I bet you're wondering who the murderer was? Well, that would be telling...


  1. Amazing.. the lanterns are great! must try it out!!

  2. Very pretty! Thanks for sharing the step-by-step guide, I've had a couple of visitors coming to check it out. We are already getting warmer weather, so I think I will have to wait until next winter to make more lanterns!

  3. Now how does it end?
    any food suggestions?
