Entertaining At Home With Rueda Verdejo Wine
0

Ever since moving into my one bedroom apartment on the Upper East Side, I have been entertaining constantly! I love having my girlfriends over for wine and treats. This past weekend I teamed up with a Spanish wine region, Rueda,  to host a fun wine-filled afternoon. Rueda is known for their refreshing Verdejo white wine and I have to admit, it’s delicious! If you like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio, you will love Verdejo from Rueda. It’s vibrant and complex, yet effortlessly drinkable! In addition to having a few bottles of Oro de Castilla and Shaya Verdejo wine on hand, I also picked up some tea sandwiches, scones and sweet treats from Alice’s Tea Cup, an Upper East Side must-try. It definitely made for a sweet afternoon!

To help freshen up my space, I picked up a few of my favorite blooms to decorate my dining nook and bar cart. In case you didn’t know, cherry blossoms are insanely pretty this time of year. You can typically find cherry blossom branches for around $12 dollars a branch from your local florist! And in true lauren-nelson.com fashion, I also had white hydrangeas on hand to spruce up my bar cart.

With each new season, I like to switch up my dishes and dinnerware. I absolutely loved these pink floral dishes and these pink glasses from Villeroy & Boch. They matched perfectly with the cherry blossoms and looked oh-so-cute under the tea sandwiches.

If you’re planning to entertain at home any time soon, or just want a refreshing glass of white wine, make sure to look for Rueda in your wine store or order it directly from wine.com with the code “RUEDA” for a 10% discount! Cheers!! Xo. Lauren
