Our Parties

A Gift Wrapping Party

December 19th, 2014

Francis Ford Coppola’s grandmother, Maria Zasa, spoke four languages – English, Italian, Arabic and French and with each sip of wine she would offer a toast, “À votre Santé” – to your health. Today, Grandma Zasa Coppola’s memory, and her celebration of family and togetherness, is honored with Coppola’s Votre Santé collection of wine. Inspired by the story behind these wines, I hosted a pre-holiday get-together with a few close friends and family at a gift wrapping party that celebrates tradition… and delicious food and wine, of course. In addition to a decked-out gift wrapping station, I set out the makings for a build-your-own grilled cheese buffet and all the wines to pair them with. Click through for all the fun, and I’d love to hear: how do you and your family toast the holidays each year?

    How fun! Love the grilled cheese sandwich bar idea. And I’d like to go to a wrapping party…just not at my house – so I wouldn’t have to clean it all up!! I know how my table looks after I wrap presents! Isn’t that Caspari gold party animal wrapping paper so fabulous??! I found it with only two presents left to wrap. It’s definitely my favorite!

    I love the idea of wrapping napkins with cinnamon sticks. What a festive touch!
