Water is boring. But when you entertain, you must offer your guests water - but who wants a Kirkland water bottle, when you can have a mason jar of crystal clear, cold water with colorful, festive ice cubes?
It's so simple and the results are appreciated by everyone. I served cranberry ice cubes at Thanksgiving, our "Kick Off Christmas" party, our Christmas party and on Christmas Eve. They look amazing floating in a punch bowl and even in something as simple as water.
Inexpensive and easy for you - colorful, thoughtful and appreciated by your guests.
It's easy peasy, just put 3 (or so) cranberries in each cube, fill (almost to the top) with water (watch out - cranberries are very buoyant) and freeze for a couple hours before guests arrive.
Believe me, it's worth the effort - I have now been dubbed by my family as the "New Martha Stewart." But also be careful, because now you will be the "go-to" for hosting all the parties for your family and friends!
