Time to Set the Table

First, create a festive scene. Entertaining accessories such as colorful linens, freshly cut flowers and greenery, plus lighting serve as the perfect setting for a delicious meal, good wine, and scrumptious treats. If you are using a tablecloth, make sure you keep it anchored with tablecloth weights to keep the fabric secured even in breezy weather. When selecting your tableware and glassware, try break resistant options that you can reuse throughout the years. Select sturdy plates that will not shatter if they are accidentally dropped. For outdoor wine glasses, select a shatter proof option such as Epicureanist’s Party Wine Glasses. Made of break resistant plastic, these reusable glasses can stand up to guests who have had more than a few glasses of wine.

Grazing Table

Build an enticing grazing table filled with fruits, vegetables, gourmet cheese, and other delights so your guests may snack at their leisure. Add appetizer plates such as Epicureanist’s cocktail trays or wine glass appetizer lids that allow your guests to eat and drink while keeping one hand free.

Chill Out!

Chill Out! Keep your wine and other beverages cool and ready to enjoy throughout the party. For times when a giant cooler is not ideal, opt for something elegant such as Epicureanist’s silver ice bucket which is large enough to hold more than just one bottle plus plenty of ice. If you are creating an outdoor wine table and drink station, use a table that can hold the weight of drinks, ice, and glassware. Let your guests open bottles as needed by having several wine corkscrews on hand. Set out wine stoppers to keep the wine fresh while keeping any bugs out of your bottles.

On the go

If you are taking the celebration to the great outdoors, swap the dining table for a portable outdoor wine table or bottle and glass holding stakes that keep your bottle and glasses secure and your hands free. Use a wine carrier to safely tote your bottles to your destination. To keep your beverages cool, ditch the messy and heavy ice by bringing a few bottle chilling wraps.
