Thank you Decoy for sponsoring this post. Celebrate International Merlot Month this October by using the hashtag #MerlotMe on social!
October brings us two fun occasions to celebrate: Halloween and International Merlot Month! As I am a big believer in celebrations, I decided to combine the occasions by throwing a hauntingly sophisticated Halloween Dinner Party with Decoy Merlot.
If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you probably already know two things about me… First, I really love wine! And second, I don’t need much of an excuse to celebrate a fun occasion.
Nevertheless, my heart skipped a beat as soon as I laid eyes on this wine bottle holder. I knew it would be the perfect way to lay the skeletal framework for my Halloween tablescape. I can’t think of a more perfect way to get in the spirit-s of International Merlot Month then with a celebration of frightening proportions!
International Merlot Month is a global industry event celebrating the noble Merlot varietal. Over 100 Merlot producers from around the world participate! Decoy has been one of my favorite go-to wines for years and their Merlot is the perfect lush and inviting wine to pair with my Halloween dinner party menu.
Halloween Dinner Party Menu
