A wine and Cheese Party is an easy and elegant gathering to plan. With just a few creative touches you can make this party a night your guests will always remember. Not sure what kind of wine to serve? Go with two different kinds each of red, white and bubbly. To take the heat off of you invite your guests to bring their favorite bottle of wine. You prepare the appetizers and set up a spot in your home to serve them and pour wine. You don’t have to have a home bar to accomplish this. You can set up everything on furniture you already have like a coffee table, sideboard or dining room table. A kitchen island will work well to, just be sure to clean your area and free it of everyday clutter. You want your wine station to be stocked with a wine opener, wine charms or labels, a wine cooler large enough to chill the whites, pretty wine glasses, appetizers and a glass to keep the corks. It’s a sophisticated affair that every adult will enjoy. Who doesn’t like spending the evening with friends (kid free) and drinking amazing wine and noshing on delicious complimentary appetizers? I’ll take two please!

Arrange trays and platters of simple foods that pair well with wine on a table with a tablecloth. Adding a few candles is all you need for a centerpiece. Be sure to lable your foods. Not everyone knows the different variaties of cheeses and olives by heart. They need to know what they are eating Little Big Company
A chalk board runner is a great way to label your cheeses and appetizers. Not only is it creative but it creates a rustic backdrop for your appetizers and organizes your pairings so guests know what food will “rock” their wine! Rock your Party
