The purpose of creating a wine bar like this is to make self service easy for your guests and it doesn’t hurt to style it up a little, either. ๐Ÿ™‚ Think of it as a one stop shop for wine, snacks, and whatever else you might be serving on a summer day to keep your company happy. This is a beautiful setup that can be replicated on any surface from your coffee table to your kitchen island–indoors or out. Here, I used the nesting tables in my living room that work well as an easy serving space when I don’t want guests to have to circulate through the house too much. Game nights, watch parties, and kick-backs are all great occasions to put one of these together. Here are the essentials of what you’ll need:

  • Wine (I used Clos du Bois Chardonnay, Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon and Clos du Bois Pinot Grigio in this setup)
  • Glasses
  • Bites (I typically go with nuts, cheeses, and fruit)

Group each of these elements together (i.e., wine in one spot, snacks in another) on your table or surface. Not too long ago, I tried a few wines from Clos du Bois and have added them to my rotation. I appreciate the elegant and easy-to-read new packaging of Clos du Bois Chardonnay, which should prevent any backup or confusion at the wine bar. ๐Ÿ™‚ The Clos du Bois Cabernet Sauvignon and Clos du Bois Pinot Grigio also have new labels that are clean and clearly distinguishable from each of the other varieties. They all still have the same great taste and are perfect for any summertime occasion. After you’ve set up your wine and such, it’s time for decor.ย Some decorative elements you can use include:

  • fresh or dried flowers
  • table runner or place mats
  • coffee table books
  • cake stands
  • candles

There’s no need to buy extra decorations or try to reinvent the wheel when it comes to easy summer gatherings. The keyword is easy, so feel free to grab and use things you already have around the house. You might recognize some of the items in this setup from my posts about budget table styling, how to throw a housewarming orย easy holiday entertaining! Fill in the space around the wine and food with these decor items but be sure not to crowd the table. You don’t want people to have to move things around while trying to serve themselves as that can lead to broken glasses, etc.
