Serving up delicious cheeses and wine is a great way to casually entertain friends. I decided to set up my little buffet on the bar in our tavern room. I set the scene with a pair of candlesticks upon which I arranged fall flowers. Leaves and grapes, allowing the greenery to trail down across my slate cheese boards and wooden cutting board.
Everything was set up early in the day, all I would have to add is my cheeses and the bottles of wine.The nature inspired ribbons from Cream City Ribbon that I used for my Woodland tablescape were a great addition to my buffet, curling around the greenery with wine corks tucked in, too.
I love to use parchment leaves beneath my cheeses, it make the presentation all that more special. A stack of green plates is ready for guests to help themselves. This is the Sierra Pine pattern from Bonjour for Paula Deen.I have this set of leaf-handled cheese knives that I love to bring out this time of year which fit the theme of my buffet so well.
Along with a selection of cheeses, I served tiny toasts, skinny bread sticks, honey, nuts and figs.
I picked up this fall wreath at Home Goods and removed all of the gray pumpkins from it for my Thanksgiving tablescape. For this wine and cheese gathering I added fall florals and leaves and a cluster of dark purple grapes.
Invite in friends for a lovely evening of wine and cheese. Styling a pretty display will add to the festivities.
