If you love wine and candles, then get ready to celebrate because National Wine Day is on May 25th! Obviously, the best way to celebrate is to grab a bottle or two of your favorite wine and have a few drinks with friends, but you’ll need something to snack on too!
With that in mind, we’ve got a great idea for your National Wine Day celebration – the perfect pairing of charcuterie and wine with one of Jackpot’s Wine Glass Jewelry Candles!
What’s a Charcuterie Board?
A charcuterie board is a presentation of appetizers served on a board or slab for maximum sharing. You might have seen them trending on social media and at social events and if you haven’t, now’s the time to try one out!
A great place to start is to find a board that is long and wide enough to accommodate the amount of food you plan to use. Next, choose a perfect centerpiece or centerpieces like Jackpot’s Wine Glass Jewelry Candles, put them in place, and then start placing your snacks in a symmetrical or artistic pattern until the board is full.
Charcuterie boards are great for any event because they give you the flexibility to meet special dietary needs or to prepare for guests on a budget. Listed below are finger foods to include:
Spreads and dips
Those are just a few common elements to a great charcuterie board. Don’t be afraid to get creative! Remember that cheeses pair well with everything so there should be a lot on the board. Also, you can make your board extra special with a theme like fall flavors or a color scheme and include other decorations like fresh herbs.
If you’re ready to build a board around one of Jackpot’s wineglass candles, we’ve prepared a perfect pairing for you!
Chardonnay Wine Glass Jewelry Ring Candle
If you’re a fan of the Chardonnay Wine Glass candle and chardonnay wine, then your board might include a variety of bold and tart flavors with soft cheeses. Below is a handy shopping list of snacks that pair well with chardonnay!
Fruit – berries, apple slices, pear slices, olives
Cheese – asiago, Havarti, parmesan
Nuts – hazelnuts, almonds
Meats – bold flavored salami, prosciutto
Sweets – white chocolate or chocolate dipped oranges
Once you’ve got your ingredients prepped and sliced, arrange them around your candles and do your best not to eat everything before your guests arrive!
