To celebrate my 40th birthday, my husband and I hosted a "wine tasting" party at our house. Just prior to my life's notable numbers turning point, we indulged in a few weekends scouting out local wineries, bed and breakfasts and country inns that boasted in their course meals paired with house wines. We tried, tasted and perhaps indulged a bit until we came home with a nice variety of wines to share with our friends on my special day.
I have a birthday coming up here soon, and it seems like that turning point is getting further and further behind me, so share with me and enjoy some snaps of some of my fond memories!
We moved our home furniture around and created some comfy conversation areas in our party room to allow our guests to mingle, try the different wines and taste some of the delicious appetizers I whipped up.
I collected bags and bags of grape vines from yard sales and discount stores so I could share the theme around the house.
