Easy entertaining idea – gather an army of fun treats (fruits, nuts, chocolate, olives, whatever your fancy), put them in adorable cups, and then assemble on your biggest wooden cutting board or cute little coffee table.
Next, offer a variety of different wines, and then have people sample the different foods when sipping their wines.
You can then either a) discuss the different traits of each wine when paired with different foods – I live in wine country – we do actually engage in wine banter! Or b) continue catching up with your friends, all the while knowing that they’re thinking – “why have I never thought of that?! What a perfect party idea!”
This particular platter was at my friend Lisa’s house when we were co-hosting a jewelry party. I brought some gluten free appys, while my friend made sure some of her foods were gluten free as well – what a sweet heart!
