Floral Ice Bucket
This seriously beautiful floral *ice* bucket is all sorts of fancy. Not only will it keep your choice of drink cool, it’ll blend in seamlessly with the rest of your charming decor. Pro tip: When making your ice bucket, opt for plastic and galvanized buckets rather than glass, which is more likely to break
Polka Dot Decor

As pretty as those colorful speckled runners and pot decorations are, they’re actually made of fingerprints. If you’ve got kids, the decorations will make an excellent craft activity to help celebrate grandma or their mom, too.
