The gift of a bottle of champagne or sparking wine really is a divine idea. We were recently thrown parties in honor of our nuptials in New York. One was before we departed (many of those bottles have been enjoyed already) and the other last week-end. Both parties could not have been more perfect. Beautiful food, laughter, love–a winning combination for a grand party in my book. The suggestion of bubbly as the gift was tossed about. Boy oh boy, do our friends know us well! We wrote on the back of each bottle who the gift was from. Each time we enjoy a bottle, we will remember and toast the giver.
