Wine Selection & Quantity
Depending on your budget, you have several options regarding wine selection.
Tip: Allow approximately
a 1/2 bottle to one bottle of wine per person for a three-hour
For an "upscale" Golden Globe Party (with
wine aficionados), splurge on a selection of "fine" red
and white wines.
For a "casual chic" Golden
Globe Party, offer a variety of good mid-priced red and white wines.
For a "limited budget" Golden
Globe Party, buy a case of Charles
Shaw "Two-Buck Chuck" wines from Trader
Joe's — at under $30, these good table wines are an
excellent value. We like the Cabernets and Merlots. Or ask your
guests to "BYOB" — bring a bottle of their favorite
wine or whatever they'd like to drink.
Be sure to have plenty of sodas, soft drinks, bottled
water and coffee on hand for non-drinkers and "designated drivers.
"Golden Globe Pot Luck"
Better yet...host a casual "Golden Globes Pot Luck Party." Pot
Lucks are a lot of fun, especially if you're on a budget.
"Golden Globe Pot Luck" Menu
Make a big batch of Popcorn and have everyone
bring a dish (appetizer, salad, entree, dessert...and what they
want to drink).
Some additional food ideas include: assorted Costco and Trader
Joe's hors d'oeuvres:
- Crab Cakes
- Coconut Shrimp
