Creating The Perfect Easter Wine Tasting Tablescape

The first step to constructing your Easter Wine Tasting table is to gather your Easter decorations and place mats, wine tasting glasses, wine tasting sheets, pens, fancy water glasses and water pitcher, silverware, Easter hosting dishes, plates and napkins. Also, pick-up fresh flowers and four wine bottles from the store. (If you are hosting a larger or smaller crowd adjust the bottles of wine accordingly!)

PRO TIP: Print your wine tasting card on card stock paper. This will make your wine tasting card look and feel much nicer.

Next up on the to do list: Make covers for the wine bottles. Gather your four wine bottles and a few brown paper bags from the grocery store. Cut the brown paper bags and use the side where the grocery store logo is not present to wrap the wine bottle labels. After the bottles are wrapped, write #1, #2, #3 and #4 on the bottles with a black sharpie. If you are an artist, feel free to draw fun Easter bunnies or a spring bouquet!

Setting Up The Easter Wine Tasting Tablescape

When setting up your dining room table for the Easter Wine Tasting, start by evenly placing the flowers on the table: center, right and left. For the flowers, choose different plants or floral arrangements in various colors. Your guests will love the pop of color and keep their eyes engaged with the tablescape. Then place the covered wine bottles on the table - two bottles between each set of flowers. After all of the main centerpieces are on the table, add fun wooden eggs. These accent pieces are the perfect way to elevate the tablescape. In addition to the wooden eggs, add small and large candles as well as other small Easter trinkets.

Once the center of the table is complete, it is time to set up everyone's table setting. Start with placing an Easter placemat in front of each guest's seat. Next, take the printed wine tasting cards and pens, laying one of each on top of each placemat. Thereafter, place a water glass and four wine tasting glasses at each table setting. Please note, if you are tasting more or less than four wines, lay out the corresponding number of wines to glasses. At the end of your table place a filled water pitcher for guests to help themselves throughout the evening. Now your table is set to host your Easter festivities!

Final Table Decorating & Wine Tasting Thoughts

When hosting your Easter Wine Tasting it is important to remember that elevating your event and making it memorable is all in the details. All of the small Easter and spring decor items on your table and in your dining room will bring the event together. The wine tasting cards allow an opportunity for your guests to rate each wine by aroma, taste, body, color and overall rating and is a great added touch that they will remember and often times they take home their card for the memory!
