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.  Wine and Cheese for friends

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.

  1. What a terrific backdrop for your wine & cheese buffet! Love the fall florals, grapes and the way you arranged them cascading down from candlesticks – so smart! The set up for the cheeses looks great too – never seen leaf parchment before and what a lovely addition it makes to your display.

  2. Simply stunning! As is everything you do. I have 3 fig trees in my yard, hoping fruit will be ripe by Thanksgiving. Keeping my fingers crossed! Thanks for sharing such a lovely display.

  5. Chloe sorry I’m behind. Phone issues yesterday almost sent me over the edge.

    This is gorgeous and warm for a assortment of cheeses and wine. Love your cheese knives with leaves. Using the parchment leaves is perfect for a base too.

    Don’t you enjoy this Tim of year for these gatherings?

    Enjoy your day my friend
