Fall Bachelorette Wine Tasting With AVA Grace
Guest Blog by Gillian Ellis of A Coastal Bride
When the weather cools, there is nothing better than gathering your girlfriends for a cozy night in. So if you’re planning a fall bachelorette party, why not make it a girl’s night in wine tasting! On my blog, Coastal Bride (www.acoastalbride.com) I specialize in sharing unique and fun wedding ideas, and today I am going to share everything you need to plan the perfect wine tasting with AVA Grace Vineyards.
AVA Grace Vineyards has the perfect wine varietals for a fall wine tasting. Their Chardonnay and Rosé are two of my favorites. The Chardonnay has a bright peach flavor, while their Rosé is delicate and fruity. These two wines pair well with the same cheeses like gouda and gruyère making them the perfect pair to serve together. Not to mention, AVA Grace’s labels are so cute they make an attractive addition to table décor!
Orange and black are the traditional colors of fall but for a bachelorette party you want a more sophisticated color palette. For this reason I chose white, light green, and pops of gold for my tablescape. Leave the orange pumpkins for the kids and give your table an elegant look with white and green fairytale pumpkins. Varying the size of the pumpkins will give your table an eye-catching look. I added some taper candles for more height and pieces of cotton to the table for a bit of texture.
I created this free printable (that you can download here) and placed at each guest’s place setting. If you don’t have a menu, it’s nice to greet guests with a little card and this fun saying, “Before she says I do, let’s have a drink or two,” is just too cute!
When you’re planning a wedding it’s tough to choose the wine that you will serve. As a bride you are basically a hostess for 100+ people. With that many guests, you want to make sure you make the right drink choices! Hosting a wine tasting bachelorette party is the perfect way to get your friends’ advice on which wines they love. With each sip you can tell that AVA Grace wines are crafted with beauty and soul. I can’t think of a more perfect wine to inspire happiness on your wedding day!
