How To Throw a Beer and Cheese Tasting Party

by Jillian Leslie on

beer-cheese-tasting-party1

We're used to seeing wine and cheese tasting parties, so I decided to mix it up and throw a beer and cheese tasting party. And here's why I did it... Beer brings a different vibe to a party, a little more casual. Beer goes with almost anything, so it's actually easier to pair beer with cheese. And finally, I'm more of a novice in the world of beer so it was fun for me to learn

I recommend throwing a beer and cheese tasting party if your guests don't know each other well. Tastings work as excellent conversation starters.  "What'd you think of the manchego?" "I thought it was a little strong but tasty."

How To Paint a Mirror To Give Your House A Pop of Color

How To Paint a Mirror | CatchMyParty.com

We moved into our house about a year and a half ago, and while our house looks pretty furnished, our walls are bare. I set up a dessert table photo shoot five months ago, and hung a pink paper lantern and tassel garland from my ceiling for decoration. Because our walls are so empty, I never removed it.

I have this fantasy of creating one of those ginormous three-piece triptychs from photos I've shot, that would totally wow my friends, but so far it's just a fantasy.
