How to Plan a Successful Food and Wine Event


Springtime in Florida is a wonderful time for outdoor entertaining, which is why there is no better environment for hosting a wine and food festival to celebrate the season of rejuvenation. If you are brainstorming ideas for your next event’s theme, the following tips to plan a wine and food festival will enhance ambiance and atmosphere for your high-class clientele.


Order a Tent

No outdoor party is complete without a tent to shelter guests from the elements. Having a tent, along with proper tent lighting, is imperative. It will keep guests comfortable throughout the duration of yo

ur event, from sunny afternoons into cool evening hours, and will keep them dry in the event of rain.


Use High-Quality Furniture and Accessories

To create the ideal display for your wine and food pairings, select elegant and high-quality furniture. Incorporate tables and chairs to complement the upscale motif. Make sure additional accessories such as tablecloths and mats, along with vases, dishes, silverware and silverware holders are also suited to exemplify the elegance of your event.


Incorporate Staging and a Dance Floor

Featuring a center stage is an excellent means of amplifying live performances and encouraging guests to get out on the dance floor. A stage is also a great method of drawing attention to important speeches or announcements made during your festival, so consider the use of staging to magnify the impact of toasts made at your wine and food festival.


Establish an Exquisite Menu

A proper wine festival requires much more than a simple collection of cheeses. To make your menu stand out, feature an assortment of items to highlight the selection of wines you will serve at your party. Decadent appetizers like shrimp toast, herb-roasted olives, mushroom and fontina crostini, roasted figs stuffed with goat cheese, and olive tapenade with figs are a few of the many delightful appetizers which are perfect for a wine and food festival.
