This "Eiffel Tower" Vodka Luge was created for Esher Cricket Club's Annual Ball. A large marquee was set-up, not on the hallowed cricket pitch but close to the Pavilion; a very lavish, a phenomenal looking and decorated marquee with star cloths and beautifully decorated tables. Just in the entrance to the marquee, the "Eiffel Tower" Vodka Luge was set-up on a tall table. Guests entering would immediately get the feel and tone of the Ball - "La Belle France". Very Parisienne, very chic and very ooh-la-la. Not sure if they had Can-Can dancers lined-up, but they would not have been out of place in the setting they had!
The "Eiffel Tower" standing 1m tall and 1/2m at the base was certainly a show-stopper. It is not the first Vodka Luge the Cricket Club has had from us - last year for their "Fire and Ice" themed Ball, they had carved shards of ice and flames - again in a tall Portrait format. Flavoured Vodka had ben lined-up for guests to enjoy (as I am certain they did on the night!)
The real "Eiffel Tower" in central Paris on the banks of the Seine stands some 984 feet (300m) from the base to the very tip (906 feet to the top viewing platform). Although Gustave Eiffel is credited with the name of the "Eiffel Tower", he was the engineer whose company build the Tower. The Architect who designed a large part of the Tower was actually Stephen Sauvestre (26 December 1847 - 18 June 1919) a French and well respected Architect. He based his design on an initial drawing by Maurice Koechlin, a structural engineer on the project along with Emile Nouguier.
The "Eiffel Tower" Vodka Luge is an intricate design Luge with a lot of ice cut away - especially at the top. If you would like an "Eiffel Tower" carved for your party or event, careful thought as to where it is to be place it needs to be considered. Chunkier or bolder sculptures last the longest. The Eiffel Tower is not chunky by any stretch of the imagination; it is relatively delicate and intricate. A great piece, but not designed to last long hours in a warm room or hot environment.
