I started remembering some fun nights I’ve had at my house which are coming back to me as I start getting excited about truly getting my house clean again… My name is Charlotte and I’m a pack rat. I want to get it pretty again so I can do more parties it’s been a few years.
I really want to do a wine tasting and fondue party as I want to rate more wines and would love to try wines of what friend’s like that may be different than my own.
I actually got to do a night like that recently with my mom and friend, Sarah. It was a chocolate wine night that was planned in just a few hours and at the end we ended up mixing together a chocolate wine with a blueberry wine to make a Chocolate Covered Blueberry tasting wine. Delicious! Even better that it was on National Wine Day that we tried about 8 different types of Chocolate wines then the one we made.
One of my friend wine and fondue nights at the new place was an absolute blast! Borrowed two of dad’s new presents which are these stands that with a blanket on it became benches. Everyone brought their favorite wine and I made wine charms in everyone’s favorite color with their first name initial. There ended up being a bit of wine spilled but thankfully it was white wine only. We played Apples to Apples and laughed our asses off. Especially when mom and Aunt Linda started talking about the bumps on the bottom of the wine glasses wondering if that was for the blind. Then Aunt Linda started feeling the bottle in quite a suggestive manner which made us all laugh in an uproar as she said this is how she would decide on a bottle if that’s the only way she could tell. *wink* LOL
Another great night which didn’t work out as well as I wanted was a Martini Night that included mom and my friend, Courtney. I had recently bought a Cocktail shaker and from my house warming party I had received Martini glasses and wanted to try out some Martinis. I was hoping for more people but unfortunately it didn’t work out that way. We each brought ingredients for a different flavor Martini to try. Can’t remember Courtney or I’s flavors but mom’s was a Cheesecake Martini. Mom doesn’t like the flavor of Vodka so next time will probably bring Gin but she kept adding more and more cranberry juice to it so she didn’t have the Vodka taste. LoL Thinking about it now it ended up being more of a Cranberry Martini with a splash of Vodka. LoL
So I definitely would like to do another Wine Tasting and fondue party. Maybe get my friend from school who does the Wine Tastings in your home business to come besides guests bringing their favorites for everyone to try. It’ll be one of those BYOWAWG – Bring Your Own Wine and Wine Glass nights. Maybe I’ll do more wine charms for their glasses. I have a few left over (after cleaning my cabinet) from the other wine night who never showed. We shall see. First step is making the locations that I can not just close a door on look good. *wink* LOL
