Champagne and Cheese Party

The Best Cheese for Champagne

No celebration is complete without cheese, so what’s the ideal cheese to serve alongside a glass of champagne?

  • Soft cheeses (triple-cream) like Brie and Camembert are fabulous choices. That’s why I used brie here with my blackberry bites.
  • Baby Swiss
  • Gruyere
  • Gouda
  • Cheddar
  • Parmesan

This is a good baseline list for getting started with your champagne and cheese party menu. Read on for a few of the recipe ideas I served at my get-together.

Champagne and Cheese Party Menu Ideas

Herbs de Provence Cups – Line small canapé cups with celery leaves and chives. Fill with your favorite soft Herbs de Provence spreadable cheese. I used President brand.

Blackberry Brie Bites – Always a crowd favorite, brie is perfect for pairing with champagne. Fill phyllo cups with a small slice of brie, bake until melted, and top with a blackberry (or other fruit of choice).

Celery Almond Bites – Slice celery stalks into small 2-inch slices. Top with a soft or spreadable cheese. Top each with an almond.

Prosciutto Roll-Ups – Layer a slice of prosciutto with a soft cheese, such as a spreadable garlic and herb cheese, top with two spinach leaves, roll and secure with a toothpick.

Champagne and Cheese Party Decorations & Tips

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!
