Music festival season is here. So I thought why not bring those music festival vibes to one of your parties at home? Gather some flowers, bring all the music instruments, buy different types of cheese, and pick up a bottle or two of the most music-worthy wines – Notable Wines! I made this music festival-themed wine and cheese spread, plus a flower wall last week – and the whole thing was amazing. Let me share with you how to throw a similar music festival themed wine party.
What You’ll Need to Throw a Music Festival Themed Wine Party
- DIY Flower Wall
- A variety of flowers, preferably in different colors
- Clear tape
- Wine and Cheese Spread
- Some guitar and drums toppers (download the free printables here)
- Clear tape
- Cheeseboard or platter
- Your choice of cheese and meats
- Some wine – I suggest the new Notable California and Notable Australia Chardonnays that are first to feature the notes or the flavor profiles on the front of their bottles. The Notable California features notes of butter, oak, and vanilla. The Australia Chardonnay has notes of citrus, melon, and peach. Oh, and did I mention it’s also clad in musical notes design in the front? Bonus points: National Chardonnay Day is on May 21st. So grab a bottle for an Insta-worthy #HappyNationalChardonnayDay pic! Don’t forget to tag Notable on Instagram, if you do!
How To: DIY Flower Wall
There are many ways to create a flower wall for your next party. They make great backdrops for a buffet/serving table. But at the same time, they make a perfect backdrop for photo booths too. For this one, I made use of fresh flowers.
- I first trimmed the flowers to the desired length I want for my flower wall. Cut each flower to make sure they are all even. I removed the leaves in most of them, but left some for variety.
- Begin lining them up on the wall, securing each stem to the wall with clear tape. I’d like to start with the very bottom and work my way up. If serving on top of a buffet table, I like to find the center first, tape the first flower there and then go one side, before completing the other side. That’s it!
Note + Tip: Since I used fresh flowers, the flowers will stay up and fresh for about 10-12 hours just enough to last a party. But if you want to keep them up longer, you can use clear floral water tubes so the flowers can still absorb water, and you can also put flower food in it. The only thing is, you’ll need to secure the stem and the tube more effectively. You can use tape on both top and bottom of the stem and the tube. But if it’s too heavy, you might need to hook it up with wire onto a board with holes, instead of sticking to a wall.
Completing the Wine and Cheese Spread
Once your flower wall is up, it’s time to create the wine and cheese spread.
- Lay out some cheese boards, platters, or bamboo cutting boards.
- Plate a variety of cheeses.
- Label your cheese so your guests will know which one is which. Print the printables you downloaded, cut, tape a toothpick in the back, write the name of the cheese, and stick them up.
- Add some meats and crackers to the mix.
- Gather some wine glasses and serve your chilled Notable wines!
