In June, I helped host a big party for our ranch to celebrate our 75th Anniversary of V8 Ranch. It was an amazing event that many of our team had been working on for months and months. But, to me, one of the highlights was this Brahman bull ice sculpture that we had on display in the cocktail area….
So, please keep in mind…I’m country. But whenever I think of the most possible fanciest accent to any type of event – an ice sculpture comes to mind. (Some of you are probably laughing at this but hey, I’m easily impressed by ice sculptures.)
So for this event, I thought it would be super cool to have an ice sculpture of a Brahman bull. I’d been thinking this for a year. But every time I thought about it, I would tell myself some excuse why NOT to do it…
- It’ll be too expensive….
- Nobody could really make a Brahman bull into an ice sculpture….
- How would I keep it frozen….
“EVERY TIME I HAD THE IDEA, I KEPT CONVINCING MYSELF IT WASN”T POSSIBLE….”
Then about 2 weeks before the event, I broke down and did it. I googled “Houston Ice Sculpture” and contacted someone. The very first person I spoke with said they could totally do it! The price was in my budget, they assured me they could sculpt a bull, and they would even deliver it to my party.
So….I said YES!
And to my delight – when the ice sculpture arrived, it was AMAZING!!! It turned out to be one of the focal points of the night, and everyone wanted their picture with it. Several kids (and a few adults) were spotted taking pictures of themselves sticking their tongue on the ice sculpture for fun. HA!
