Before the party I found some ironic wine tags at the Snow Goose in Utica Square. I had to have them. I think they are a fun ice breaker for people who might not know each other. At least you can ask what their wine tag says about them.
We had meats, cheeses, fruit, bruschetta, breads and chocolates. (If you have never been to my house, I can assure you my dining room is not purple. It is more of a red color. You can see it here. Just goes to show how awful the pictures are that my cell phone takes!)
I made my sister-in-law's brie. It is super easy to make. Just get a brie cheese wheel, place it on a crescent roll sheet laid out, cover with jam (in this case I used a white zinfandel jelly), wrap the crescent roll around and bake on 350 for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. My sister-in-law also adds pecans to hers and serves with apples and crackers. Apples just weren't going to happen that night but I know it would be delicious!
