centerpiece advice...

hello!
i was hoping to do a basket with a bottle of wine, a stick somehow holding the table number, and a small sprig of flowers.
does anyone have any advice on how to keep the wine cold without the ice melting all over the table??
thanks!

    Maybe you could hide one of those reusable cold-packs you put in coolers in the bottom of the basket.

    If it's red wine, you won't have to keep it cold. 

    The reusable ice packs is a good idea. Or put something inside of the basket that will hold ice, so when it does melt, it doesn't melt through the basket onto the table.

    maybe you could find wedding related wine chillers or put the number on top of these somehow

    If you're not using the wine to drink during the reception, you don't even need it cold. Most (if not all) wines are sold on a shelf. Warm. If you never get them cold, it won't compromise the taste. If you are using it during the reception, i definitely agree with the icepacks.

    thanks so much!
    i think weve decided that not drinking the wine is going to be our best bet. someone at the table can take it home =)
    were probably going to print up labels to put on the bottle and have a small white bud vase with a big colored flower. very simple but hopefully nice!!!
    trying to do alot ourselves, on the budget side of things!
