I know, I know- it’s been QUITE a while since I’ve updated my blog but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share with you the details of my first ever House Party!
For those of you who haven’t heard of House Party before, I urge you to check out their website and sign up.
So what is House Party you ask?
“House Party (houseparty.com) is a company that throws thousands of parties across the country on the same day, all hosted by people like you and in the comfort of your own home. Each event is sponsored by a leading brand, hosts get their own party website and a FREE party pack chock full of goodies to share with friends”

I was selected to house the French Cocktail Party. Thanks to the coupons provided in my party pack I bought a few bottles of B&G wine. Unfortunately, the requested Pinor Noir was not available in my area so instead I purchased a bottle of Merlot and the Vouvray. While both wines were very tasty, the Vouvray was definitely the winner that night. My guests absolutely loved this wine and I have to say it’s now become my white wine of choice!
House Party also provided me with some great Ile De France cheese coupons. I was able to indulge a few varieties and they were all delicious! I bought a wheel of Brie which I covered in Phyllo Dough and baked with an apple compote. It was definitely a hit! The apple and the Brie mixed so well together and made for a great cracker topper.
For dessert I made yummy Chocolate Mousse in Phyllo Cups (thanks for the inspiration Katie!)
I definitely enjoyed the wines and cheeses and will be buying more Ile De France and B&G products in the future.
