Wine for the Holidays

10 Dec

It’s that time of year – A time for entertaining and holiday cheer!

New York City

I recently attended Food Network’s Holiday wine tasting where I gained inspiration on some really cute and out of the box entertaining ideas!  All incorporate wine somehow, of course.  Take a look and let your creative energy explode with these great hosting ideas, cheers!

Adding edible gold baker’s dust {here} to any rim of a champagne glass adds a fun holiday kick for your guests! Use Freixenet Cava for this treat {more info on this bubbly in black, here}.

Use Food Network’s wine, entwine {here} and create mini wine shots paired with mini cupcakes and dessert

Set up a ‘make your own’ cocktail bar with fresh fruit and other treats to challenge guests to unleash their inner Mixologist with Seven Daughters Wine!

Keep Those Bubbles In!

30 Nov

The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is lit which mean it’s officially the beginning of holiday season! Parties every weekend and Champagne in hand is always what rings in the holiday season and New Year!  And of course, nothing is worse than when you are at a holiday party and your glass of bubbly goes FLAT.  So why not try this! Slip a raisin into your glass and watch the bubbles unfold!
