A Midsummer Night's Dream inspiration . . .
Shakespeare's play didn't really come to life for me until I was in college and attended an amazing production of the play. I've always thought that the enchanted forest setting and the mysterious plot line seem to be the perfect backdrop for gathering friends together to eat, drink and be merry.
My ideal setting is an outdoor wooded area where festivities kickoff just as the sun is going down and fireflies are waking up . . .
As for wine, I'd have La Crema Pinot Nior (which I've tried and is absolutely divine) . . .
I've never tried La Crema Chardonnay or Pinot Noir Rosé, but think they would be the perfect, refreshing complement to a summer affair. So, here's some little tags I made to use as some flair for the bottle or to put as labels on the table.
In the spirit of Midsummer Night's Dream, I'd love to feature a few surprises - a bit of magic that guests aren't expecting. So, as a gift I''d send each guest home with their very own bottle of La Crema to enjoy and recreate the magical evening all over again . . .
As for the menu, that's where I need some help! As you all know, I'm not exactly the best cook! What would you serve? I'd love to hear your ideas. Regardless of the La Crema contest, I'd love to host a Midsummer Dream party one day. But, I'd certainly need help with the menu!!!
I hope you enter and don't forget my invite if you win ;)
