Halloween is just around the corner and I am excited to share with you today easy ideas on how to host a Halloween Inspired Wine & Cheese Girls’ Night In Party and have a spooktacular time with your besties! Girls’ Night In parties are absolute my favorite only because we can be super casual and just add easy appetizers and drinks!
A Wine & Cheese Girls’ Night In is not complete without a cheese board, am I right? Not to mention it’s super easy to put together! We are showing you a few ideas on how you can create a beautiful cheese board to entertain in style.
Your girlfriends deserve to feel special. Set up a tablescape that will absolute delight your besties! By incorporating dishes you already have at home you can add a special touch to your set up by welcoming them with their individual mini pumpkin cheeseboards, mini wine bottles, wine corkscrews and personalized wine glasses. To make things more convenient, display your cheese boards right in the center of the table.
To create a delightful cheese board is easy and no matter how you display your items, it will look absolutely eye-pleasing! Try to include a variety of cheese (soft, firm and crumbly) that will pair well with your wine selection. Be sure to include a great variety of flavors and textures – crackers, nuts (salty and candied), fruit (such as grapes & figs), sweet preserves/chutneys and cured meats, such as prosciutto.
Our cheese boards feature:
- Semi-soft Stelvio/Stilfer cheese cubes
- Espresso (coated in roasted coffee beans) cheese cubes. Pairs well with nuts and chocolate.
- Pecorino Toscano D.O.P sweet and slightly nutty. Pairs well with fresh fruit.
- Feta Cheese
In addition to crackers, bagel chips, fresh fruit (grapes, figs and blackberries), Parmesan sticks, Prosciutto crumbles, salted and candied nuts, I also incorporated Pear Walnut Amaretto Jam, Pistachio White Chocolate Dip and Pineapple Coconut Mango Tequila Jelly.
