This is one party theme that is perfect anytime of the year and for any type of social occasion. From the invitations and décor to the wine and cheeses here is everything that you need to know to put together the perfect wine and cheese party. Happy sipping!!
You don’t need much when it comes to decorating and preparing for a wine and cheese party. If you want to get a little crafty you can create your own chalkboard platter with a tray from the Dollar Tree and some chalkboard paint. You can then place your cheeses and wines on the tray and write what each item is and what it pairs well with. For more instructions you can check out this DIY tutorial from LaurenConrad.com
Another creative option is decorating with wine corks. If you don’t have enough of your own corks you can usually go to any cork collection station (find one near you on reCork
) and ask to use some for a project. I love putting them in hurricanes like this centerpiece below from Two Tenty One
and for using them as place card holders for each of your wine and cheese displays like these from It's Not You, It's Brie
Now comes the important part of the part, buying the wine and cheeses!! My favorite place to buy wines is Trader Joes and Whole Foods. You can find an amazing variety and the staff at each place is very knowledgeable about what wines go great with different foods. You can also find a wide variety of cheese choices at each of these stores. You can learn the basics pairing with this chart below or find a great app on iTunes like Hello Vino (Free) iPairings ($0.99) or Cheese & Wine ($1.99).
What is your favorite wine and cheese pairing? I am a huge fan of baked brie with a fruity wine or red wine (depending on my mood). You will never need an excuse for this occasion as everyday is a good day for a wine and cheese party!!
