How to Have a Wine and Cheese Tasting
Choose tablecloths in solid colors, either rich jewel tones or light airy neutrals. Be sure to place candles wisely; candles on a table where people will constantly be reaching over and around them are not a good idea. Tea light and flameless candles are good choices for this type of event.
Give thought to how you arrange your dishes and wines. This is your event, so let your personal style shine through.
