I think wine is a must during the holiday season. Choosing gifts for those who are hard to shop for, entertaining for big parties, and shopping with long lines can cause some stress.  But wine makes it all better … right?

Wine has become ubiquitous with holiday parties, and I feel like dessert tables get all of the attention these days. So I thought I would do something a lil different and share some inspiration on how to put together a festive wine table for your holiday soirées. Fun right?

Here are a few tips I came up with for creating the perfect wine table:

Gather your supplies

Pretty wine openers and gorgeous stoppers don’t hurt when trying making your wine table stand out.

Make a wine menu

I think it’s a nice touch to tell your guests about the wine you are serving. What region is the wine from? What kind of wine is it? What flavors does it embody. For this wine table, I served Riunite Lambrusco which is a wine from Northern Italy. It’s a lush, crisp, and slightly sweet wine. I created this acrylic sign to tell guests all about it in a unique and pretty way.

Layer your table

Layer your table with linens and garland. It gives the table interest and body.

Christmas entertaining ideas

Include warm elements

Poufs and baskets around the table make your setup feel casual and inviting.

Using varying heights for your decor elements

Make sure to vary the height of the decor elements on your table. In this set up, the different candle sizes and the cake stand I used for the wine glasses gives the table some visual interest.

My last tip is to please drink responsibly. It is especially important to remember around the holidays … don’t you think?
