host your own {wine tasting party}


Wine Party Printable Set

Every year, we host a wine tasting party in December to kick off the holiday season.  I usually try to create a few custom menus and rating cards to use, and this year I created a coordinating set that I wanted to share with others interested in hosting their own wine party.

I hope you enjoy my first free printable party set, and I look forward to sharing photos with all of you after the party is over.

Here are a few previews of the FREE printables, along with links to download each item separately for your personal use.

{Happy Wine Tasting}

{fall} in love with baking…

The weather is still rather warm here in South Florida, so it’s been hard to really get into the mood for Fall.  Having said that, I turn to baking as my inspiration for warm and cozy days full of wonderful seasonal flavors.  Here are some pictures of sweet baked goods I’m hoping to make this Fall.

Instead of pumpkin pie, I plan to make this decadent pumpkin cake this Thanksgiving:

I just love warm apple crisp with a scoop or two of french vanilla ice cream…

It’s been way too long since we made our own ice cream…this flavor is perfect for the Fall!

I’ve been dying to make a simple bundt cake like this one, or a variation of zucchini bread, just to have in the mornings with a hot cup of tea…

I hope you find a way to celebrate Fall as well, and enjoy it before the busy holiday season is upon us!
