1. Bring on the bubbles!

Nothing says ‘celebration’ like a bubbly apéritif. Welcome each guest with a festive Prosecco cocktail and set the tone for an amazing evening.

2. Start small.

Small bites and cocktails go hand in hand – but it’s never a good idea to overindulge before the main event. Keep pre-dinner nibbles light.

3. Red or white?

Get both! A great Pinot Grigio is always in style and Chianti is perfect for fall.

Plan on enough for at least three glasses per guest – plus a few ‘just in case’ bottles.

4. End on a sparkly note.

A Sparkling Rosé is perfect on its own – even better paired with decadent desserts and rich, juicy berries.

5. Relax and enjoy!

Party planning can leave the best of us frazzled – but if you’re not having fun, your guests won’t either! Take a deep breath and remember: a party doesn’t have to be ‘perfect’ to be perfect.
