Host a Champagne & Cheese Party!

Tips for a Champagne & Cheese Party! from Pizzazzerie.com

Host your friends and neighbors for a Champagne & Cheese Party now that the warmer weather has finally arrived! I absolutely love adding fun twists to cheese parties like classic stripes, whimsical details, and of course – delicious cheese! I’m thrilled to have partnered with Président Cheese to style a party tablescape to inspire you to host your own party! This party features Président Brie Logs and  Président Gourmet Cheese: Herbs de Provence (a spreadable cheese); two of my favorites for entertaining. I wanted to use classic appetizer-style recipes that are both delicious but also visually appealing as well. See more of my pics below as well as my spread on ArtofCheese.com!

DÉCOR & STYLE

A bold royal blue tablecloth was topped with a whimsical black-and-white striped runner. The black-and-white stripe theme was carried out through the party with napkins, straws for drinks, vases, and holders for crackers and pretzel sticks.

Classic hydrangeas served as a simple centerpiece atop stacked white cake stands that were perfect for holding all the canapés. Welcome your guests with a tray of champagne and berries as they pick out their favorite cheese treats.

Height always creates a dramatic element so consider serving up breadsticks and pretzels in tall votive glasses. Clear glass and solid white are perfect for a whimsical party because they really allow the striped décor to pop!
