Wine theme centerpieces are perfect for a wedding held in a vineyard setting, an at home dinner party, a bachelorette party, a wine tasting party, or anytime wine is being served...including those romantic evenings just for two!
Wine, cheese, candles, fresh baguettes… turn a plain cocktail hour into a fun wine-themed party by making your guests feel as if they've been taken on a trip to Tuscany or California wine country!
(Photo at right was taken of me with my husband at a wine themed birthday party for a friend - good time!)
No matter what type of party or event you're planning, consider some of the ideas shown here. Then...
just breathe…exhale…sip…relax… and say "ahhh"! Now that’s fine living!
Basket of Bottles & Sunflowers
Place a metal or rattan basket on the table and fill it with a variety of different wines for people to try. Place a vase filled with beautiful sunflowers or other flower of choice next to wine basket. Guests will appreciate a colorful pitcher of water with fresh lemon slices nearby to refresh their pallet, or for the designated driver.
Topiary Centerpiece Idea
There's just something about topiary's that remind me of wine country and Tuscany. Group several in the center of your table, or place down the length of a long table, varying the heights for interest. Tuck in a few candles here and there and start pouring the wine! For added ambiance play Italian music in the background.
Beautiful Old World Table
Carved wood charger, adorned with silk green leaves, used as serving tray to hold wine carafe, cheese, and crackers.
Red shimmery organza napkins in wine glasses add nice red color.
Antique “cabbage rose” fabric used as tablecloth for great
pattern and color which works for both wine theme centerpieces and Old
World table decorations.
Votive, and taper candles give nice glow to table.
Ivy basket adds touch of outdoors, wicker basket provides texture to setting
Tuscany inspired round box holds patterned napkin and grapes
Dark red plates add to color of theme – dark purple, gold, or a mossy green would be pretty too!
Corks scattered on table add yet another interesting decorative touch.
Wine Theme Centerpieces...
Take Me to Italy!
Tall topiary in center of table creates a feeling of being
outdoors... perhaps outside a cafe somewhere along the streets of Italy!
Tall centerpiece also allows for viewing of all the guests sitting
around the table.
Bunches of red grapes hung from the tree add to the wine theme.
Candles provide warm glow and create a more intimate setting.
Add a platter of fresh bread, grapes, cheese, spreads, olives…
or whatever you want to serve that pairs nicely with your wine
Mismatched napkins in various shades of copper and red are
placed under each place setting for a color and texture in lieu of place
mats, however, you can use anything you have to go with your theme.
The pattern, color, and texture of the napkins added to the
vintage lace tablecloth give this table a bit of an Old World feeling.
