I just love these wine sets, and one of these days I'll keep one, hehe....How festive would this look as a table or buffet centerpiece for a Halloween gathering? Candlelight, a black tablecloth, a few autumn leaves scattered around, a bottle of your favorite brew - magic indeed! I took the photo of this set (listed now on eBay) with a bottle of one of my favorites, appropriately called "Night Harvest" (a reasonably priced cabernet) but it works with just about any bottle.
That said, I should add, I'm not much of a wine connoisseur, my selection generally being dependent on two things; a price under $20 and a cool label. Not much of a system, I know, but it works for me, and so far there have been no complaints from the dinner guests, hehe. ;)
Up next: one more Halloween coaster set! Actually, two sets, but one of them is going with me to the Ghoultide Gathering. (Mailing list people within a day's drive, look for a postcard about this event very soon - it promises to be a wicked good time!)
I'll be back tomorrow with those coasters, and in the meantime I want to send prayers and good thoughts to everyone in the path of those hurricanes down south. Be well, stay safe, and know that you're in our thoughts up here.
