    Maybe some different dips too. Everybody loves dip! And I'm a huge fan of petifors (sp?) for intimate get togethers. Not sure how close you are with all the spouses but those tend to always go over well.

    We aren't the closest really but we always have a good time and it's never awkward even with the commanders wife. I nervous about having her over but she's so sweet.

    How about cupcakes for something sweet? Easy and less expensive than petifors. Little finger sandwiches would be good too.

    Olives or an olive spread. Also, a lot of wines pair will with meats, so some suasages (which you can have on the cheese plate, served cold) would be good, or something (melon, maybe) wraped in proscuitto. And of course, chocolates!

    Also, bland crackers (like the table water crackers) are a good palette cleanser,

    I always think of chocolate and wine together. Maybe because that's what I usually eat when I drink it

    My friends usually do the cheese and crackers (though we all really like cheese so have everyone bring either a wine or a cheese...), they also put out grapes on the cheese board, and sometimes have an antipasti board too with some salami, choirzo, prosciutto, and melon on it...plus a bowl of olives and then sliced veg (like cucumbers, carrots, pepper) and hummus. Yeah, we all really like food!

    And definitely chocolate at the end
    I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so you can learn to let go.
    Things go wrong so you can appreciate them when they're right.
    You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself.
    And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

    Wine tastings are fun for get togethers!

    Snacks that are cream based (like sour cream or cream cheese dips) and bread based are really good, as are most sweets and chocolates. Be careful with acidic snacks, like pickles and olives or citrus because it can change the way the palate reacts to the wine.

    Another tip I learned was to brew some coffee before people arrive. The smell of coffee in your house will clear people's sinuses when they don't have a wine glass near their face, and when they go to try a different wine they won't have residual scents of the previous wine in their sinuses.
