Wine and Cheese, Please

Wine and cheese- is there a better combo? The majority of gatherings at our apartment involve wine and cheese, however I wanted to host a more “sophisticated” version. Aka, one that does not involve ritz crackers and a cheese ball (so good though!). One thing I had going for me? Hundreds of wine corks lying around from a d.i.y. project I never got around to. Free decor! Couldn’t waste these, had to throw a party.

We purchased a few bottles of red and white and asked our guests to bring a bottle of their favorite wine too. We also decided to combine this wine and cheese party with a game night. Our games of choice include- Cards Against Humanity and Salad Bowl (both great games to play with bigger groups). Overall, it was an extremely fun night-in!
