Keep things clean and simple at your wine and chocolate tasting. Be inspired by the colors of the wine and chocolate — deep red and rich brown — and use these to create a gorgeous look. Cover the table in a chocolate brown tablecloth and give guests brown cotton napkins. Place snacks on red plates and fill red bowls with chocolate covered treats. Arrange wine glasses in neat rows for easy access throughout the tasting. Cheeky wine charms will stimulate conversation and help guests remember which glass is theirs. Light frosted brown candles and dim the lights. Instead of fresh flowers — you don't want the fragrance of flowers taking away the wine's aroma — arrange pots of green leafy plants. Give guests a surprise party favor — boxes filled with chocolate and tied with a pretty bow — as they are leaving.
