A Wine & Cheese Gathering

 I recently hosted a Wine & Cheese themed gathering for the ladies. I decorated with earthy colors and natural/rustic elements (the center dish in the photos held cheese cubes but I took photos before putting them out).  Some of the details I added are:

  •  Paper cones filled with snacks and inserted into a wine bottle holder.
  • I filled a glass jar with wine corks for decor.
  • Fun quotes about wine were displayed.
  • Each glass had a hang tag with a conversation starter on it.
For the recipe for the chicken salad appetizer cups, visit this post, and for a printable version of the conversation starters, visit this post.

    Thank You!

    Lisalyn, those twig thingies came from Michaels. They were on sale & actually had a string attached to hang them. I didn't have any idea what I would do with them at the time, but they were cool enough to keep in my party stash! ; D

  6. OH this is great! Thanks for sharing!

    Ok where should I start with the things I love list…. How 'bout everything! Especially the creative use of the wine bottle holder! Are those bottles for the water and lemonade from Ikea? I bought the same thing, can't wait to use them! Great Job!

  9. My two favorite things! Wine tastings are so fun especially when they are this cute ;)

    I love the colors you used! This party is picture perfect! I love the vase with wine corks and grapes hanging out. My boyfriend has asked me to start collecting all the wine corks from the bottles we drink and there is starting to be enough to display! I had no idea what I'd ever use them for but this is a great solution!

    Cant wait to see the rest of the pics on FB!
