It is no secret I love wine. If you have read A Bubbly Life for like a day, you know I love wine. (case in point, yesterday's post was a gluhwein recipe, I even like wine in different languages)
Like everyone else in the world right now, I entertain much more around the holidays. And will do so on a whim. All year, I have wine & tealight candles on hand for hostess duties. But, my special Christmas version of entertaining on a whim includes a bag of cranberries and tree trimmings.
The red and green pine make everything look prettier! We get a real tree every year, so I just clip as needed for a dinner. If you have a fake tree, pick up a little rosemary tree from your grocery store and clip some herbs for your setting.
Winelab sent me a new decanter & aerator for my holiday entertaining- and I love it. I would like to say I love it because it is the best individual glass decanter & aerator I have tried (it is) but honestly, it is the aesthetic that gets me. It is SO beautiful and elegant.
It attaches to your wine bottle (no huge decanter to wash? huge plus for me ;) And, if anyone stops by, no waiting for the wine- open and pour with the attachment.
Another entertaining tip? Always have cheese on hand. This is also a stay-happily-married tip. At least in my world, because it is a nightmare for my husband if I run out of cheese...
*I was provided the Winelab decanter & aerator for review, I do not accept product reviews on the blog, but I love wine and the Winelab is SO beautiful, awesome and being sold by my sister, so I had to share!
