Holiday Party Themes: Wine and Dine
‘Tis the season for entertaining! The time for summer cocktails has passed, we’re bustin’ out our wine glasses and cozying up to the fireplace. Just because the weather has chilled doesn’t mean that all fun has to go out the window. Yes, the sun does go down quite a bit earlier and outdoor activities are much harder to coordinate but you can replace it with themed house parties, and take a few cues from our Wine and Dine trend.
The wine and dine trend allows you the opportunity to host an intimate gathering of friends and family for a dinner and some wine drinking. You can have fun with it by theming your dinner and doing it by courses, you could even host a wine tasting with dessert. In this featured trend it follows a rustic, country feel. You can set up a space in your dining room and by simply adding a few wine barrels, some decorative wine racks, substituting a couple of dining chairs and tablescaping with some crates, you can achieve this trend style.
Something enjoyable you could do on your own leading up to the party would be to drink lots of wine (not advising you to drink it all in one sitting) and create a wine bottle chandelier to hang above your table or one of the wine barrels. It will become a great talking point for your guests and a huge hit for your party, not to mention you’ll have something that will last you long past the party.
So don’t think of winter as a boring time of year, there is plenty of wine to be drank, parties to be had and friends to enjoy!
