    When it comes to hosting any party, I always strive to be a mini Martha Stewart. But, slaving over a three-course meal is not my idea of a good time. Trying to plan a dinner party usually leaves me dipping into the wine way before the guests arrive — whoops. To avoid any meltdowns — of the culinary and mental variety — I'm scratching the whole dinner idea and keeping it simple with an easy wine and cheese menu. All I need are some cheeses, a few (or many) amazing bottles of vino, and some seasonal tableware from T.J.Maxx. See how my gilded tumblers, serving platters, and yes, even printed napkins (they're polka-dotted!), serve as the finishing touches that tie this party in a pretty, cozy bow.
