Pretty in Pink Party!

Rosé TastingMy love of Rosé led me to have a Rosé themed tasting party. Guests had to bring a bottle of Rosé and we opened them all. We ended up sampling upwards of 18 different bottles. I titled the event “Pretty in Pink, Rosé wine tasting”. Everyone had to come wearing some pink as well, even Elfie wore a pink collar. We had a lot of great fun, sampling the different Rosés and enjoying each others company.

Since the party was planned for so close to Bastille Day I decided the menu would have a bit of a French flair. I made a giant Salad Niçoise platter (with green beans from the garden), a rustic Zucchini Galette (with a zucchini from the garden), French Tomato Tart, Savory Blue Cheese Galette, Gazpacho, Black Olive Tapenade, Mushroom Pâté, and an interesting Red Beet Hummus.

For decorations pink was the key feature. I had pink tissue paper pompoms, pink Chinese lanterns, pink napkins, pink votive candles, as well as my DIY Cork garland.  I also spray painted large letters to spell out wine in a bright pink. While the spray paint was out I also painted a few rocks so that they could hold down the stacks of napkins, in case it got windy.
