How to Throw a Wine and Cheese Party
Throwing a wine and cheese party is a casual way to entertain and it's one of the easiest, and least expensive parties to throw. For this party, the presentation is as important as the cheese and wine combinations, so pick a simple theme like "bounty from the garden." Choose lots of fresh fruits like grapes,apples and your favourite crackers. Add fresh flowers to the presentation for an abundant display that's both beautiful and, largely, edible.
If you're entertaining in a small space, serve all your cheeses on a single table set with a variety of cheese boards and risers to create a sense of abundance. If you're entertaining in a bigger space, set up various stations in your home to encourage guests to mingle. Each station should highlight two or three different cheeses and wines that go well together. When selecting cheeses take into consideration the many shapes and colours that are available for a bold presentation. Be sure to offer milder cheeses in addition to stronger ones so guests have a variety to choose from.
