I have been to several "girl" parties here lately that have been fabulous and as I sit as a guest and planner I think to myself I wished I knew a planner that could plan a party for me. I found an amazing party that has pushed me to plan my own party and I am determined to enjoy it. I recently found master florist, Heavenly Blooms, and fell in LOVE with her work. This party is fabulous, who wouldn't love a chocolate and wine pairing party! I have many events that I am planning right now, so if you beat me to it please invite me, or atleast send me the pictures. OK enough talking check out this amazing eye candy;
I LOVE this beautiful rustic table. Fall is my favorite time of the year and this table makes me think of fall;
I love when a planner pays attention to the small details! That is exactly what they did with these Merlot smelling candles!
They used the french spelling of Chocolat! I am going to definately use the cranberries in the candle vase idea. That looks so pretty! They used Bakerella's red velvet cake ball recipe and said it was a huge hit!
I am pretty sure these wouldn't be approved by Nutrisystem!
Wine glasses were filled with fresh cranberries and remind me of a delicious sweet glass of red wine!
For the wine tags, they were inspired by the Hostess With The Mostess wine tag tutorial that you can see here. Heavenly Blooms writes, "We used textured cardstock and used a 1/8 circle hole punch to create perfect sized tags. We then used a tiny hole punch to pierce a whole for the twine. The tags were accented with a rhinestone for a little sparkle. This was a very easy project and guests loved it! They were able to write their names on the tags using a gold pen. The tags were easy to tie onto the stem of the glass as well." I love the use of the chalkboard! Genius!
They paired the following wines and chocolate together;
1. White Zinfandel and white chocolate
2. Almond Sparkling Wine and milk chocolate
3. Riesling and orange flavored dark chocolate
4. Pinot Noir and chocolate with almonds
5. Tawny Port and chocolate filled with caramel
6. Cabernet Sauvignon and espresso dark chocolate
I hope this party by Heavenly Blooms has inspired you to go plan your own chocolate and wine pairing party. Don't forget to invite me!!
