For ice sculptures that go beyond the usual carved corporate logo, Ice Bulb offers life-size creations: The recently launched company can create cars, elephants, or other large-scale designs. Other installation capabilities include bars or lounges complete with sofas, tables, chairs, and beaded curtains fashioned out of the frosty material. (Cushions placed on icy furniture make it more comfortable for guests to sit.) Pieces melt about one quarter of an inch per hour and have a life span of six to eight hours at an indoor event. Individual, to-scale decor items (the company also offers more traditional, smaller ice products like glasses and drink luges) start at $395.
