Outdoor Parties

Warmer weather means outdoor entertaining of all kinds. From beach bashes and backyard barbecues to a casual wine tasting or vibrant fiesta, you can create the kind of atmosphere no one wants to leave. Outdoor gatherings are often the most anticipated of the year—make yours count with special touches and decorating ideas your friends and family won’t forget.

Wine-Tasting Party

Warmer weather is the best excuse to get friends together for a little wine and unwind time.

Time for Wine

Why not invite your friends over for a made-in-the-shade wine-tasting club? Figure out a time to meet up each week and play “guess the wine” while you catch up with each other.

Make it easy—keep extra drinkware on hand.

Cover the labels and pour. Guessing is half the fun.

The Food Pairing

Time to pair up! Pick up an assortment of fresh fruits, cheeses and breads to nibble on while you pass the wine time.

Party Favor

The best favor is one they can take home and use again and again. Or bring back for the next party. Simple coasters in wood and granite are the perfect pairing.

Invitation to Indulge

Keep things casual with easily printed invitations to the party. All friends have to bring is their company and a new bottle.
