If it were up to me, party planning would defs be a large part of my career. I mean, I literally get stupid-excited to set up a table like this.

Weird? Whatevs.

Anyway on Monday night I planned a little birthday soirée for my GF, Bri, which I can honestly say will be the highlight of my week. Between this homemade guac recipe, some chilled Pinot Grigio, & a few Skittles, Bri & I had a hilarious, memorable night. She’s a big personality, so mix that with some vino & let the good times rollllll.

It just so happens my perverted sense of humor + her perverted sense of humor can, uhhhh, well, get us in to some trouble.

Ok. Let’s get down to biz. Here’s my DIY birthday table:

1.} Use bright napkins that match the color theme.

2.} Wine, duh.

3.} Add a sexy prezzie!

4.} Flowers brighten up the room. Roses are too romantical. Use playful flowers like these:

5.} A small cupcake stand substitutes well for displaying chips ( or endive lettuce ; ) ), dips, veggies, &/or fruit. Because if you’re drinking wine, who really needs dessert?

6.} Fresh berries with toothpicks are a fun detail. We added them to our wine + some ice cubes ( details on that here )

8.} Grab some colorful candy & add it to pretty wine glasses or bowls. It adds vibrant detail.

Shocker: I love wine. Let’s be honest: I mean, enjoying a beautiful, pricy glass of a Bordeaux 2007 vintage while I’m staring off into the sunset is my favorite hobby ever…

Uhhh…reality check! How often does that scenario happen? BA!

*sigh*

Life is cray, so when it comes to wine I’m not too much of a snob. For instance, Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio gets the job done; it’s light, crisp, & delish.

Next time you’re sippin’, try this: add a bunch of ice/reusable ice cubes to your white wine.

Why? Because it takes longer to drink, you’ll consume less [ meaning less calories/sugar/carbs ], & adding ice promotes hydration [ ice= water= no hangover= winning ].

Cha-ching.

Unless you’re a profesh wine sommelier, this tip is the.best.evs. Esp for the holidays.

Cheers!
