This weekend Jennifer and I hosted an in-home wine tasting party. We had so much fun!

And of course chocolates, cheeses and wine.The wine tasting is kind of like a modern day tupperware party. We had a consultant, Wanda. Bottles of wine were delivered to my home. Guests were invited . We decided to put our own spin on our decor to add a bit of our own flair and to make our party more festive. We pulled together our discounted and sale craft items to see what we could create. The mini wooden spools reminded us of wine barrels.

No one could tell the difference πŸ™‚

I used a chalk pen for writing.
