Rustic Wine & Cheese Themed Dinner Party {guest feature}

This photo shoot makes me want to jump right in and spend the weekend with friends gabbing around that table! The simple rustic setting is the perfect background for a wine and cheese themed dinner party. Created for an inspiration shoot by Alchemy Fine Events & Enchanted Dream Weddings, the combination of rustic neutrals with black & white gives the look a modern edge.

  • One of the recurring details of the design is the white with black dip-dyed cheesecloth and paper elements. This is seen in the napkins, a belly band to wrap around the invitation, and the invitation itself. The colors are carried through in the flowers as well as the dishes.
  • Terra cotta pots, green plants, burlap runner, and an amazing wood table give an earthy feel that’s just right for wine & cheese presentation.
  • Even the party favors add to the design – small potted herbs are lined up with each person’s name artfully hung on it’s branches.

This design shoot shows how very simple items can come together to create a beautiful cohesive look. Use this for a special birthday, and engagement party, or for a special weekend gathering. Cheers!

  1. I love this rustic and natural table set-up. Amazing job. Where did you get the stamps for the cheeses? I’ve been looking for a stamp set like that. And that cake…WOW.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! I love everything about it! What’s in the cheesecloth bundles tied with the black ribbon? I need to switch my glass top dining table for a wood one now, LOL! Fantastic job!

  3. Wish I was there :)
