Holiday Season is here! For us, it starts with Halloween and it ends with New Year’s eve!
Parties, get-togethers, dinners with family and friends! I just love it all and love welcoming everybody at my home to celebrate it!
One thing that always bothers me is leftover wine. Sometimes we buy a couple different bottles, leave them open for people to try, for them to choose their favorite wine at our parties, but what often happens is that we end up with 3/4 bottles opened and hubby and I are not big wine drinkers, so guess what? They end up being discarded! Such a waste!
This time around, I want to share a new gadget which is saving our Holiday parties starting with Halloween!
We hosted a party last weekend and the Coravin Model Two Wine System saved us from having to throw wine away!
This is how The Coravin works:
Add the Argon gas tank
Simply insert the Coravin needle through the cork
Tip the bottle and press the trigger to pressurize with argon, and inert gas used by wine makers
When you remove the needle, the cork will reseal to preserve the wine remaining in the bottle for weeks, months, or even years.
Pull the trigger and pour the desired amount and voila! Wine on your own terms and your last glass will taste just as amazing as your very first. Red, white, rosé or maybe a little of each? Whatever you’re craving, you can enjoy all your favorite wines on your terms.
Coravin is the first and only system in the world that gives wine lovers the freedom to pour any wine, in any amount, without removing the cork. It is easier to use than a corkscrew, if I can do it, you can too!
Isn’t that amazing? I couldn’t wait to share my best newest secret to hosting an awesome party! Here are a few others:
Prepare as much as you can ahead of time
Recruit your family to clean the house before the party, so you can focus on the food and details
Plan your menu ahead and purchase items you can freeze, cook ahead to reduce prep time
Invite friends to a cooking/baking “party” asking them to help you make things the weekend before the party that you can store.
Use paper goods from a party store, which are fancier than the ones you find in the grocery store, so you have no dirty dishes at the end
Having it under control, so that you can also, enjoy your party as much as your guests.
I know I enjoyed my party this weekend! We all had a blast!
Hope you enjoyed my tips to hosting the best holiday party and that you check more details on the Coravin at the Best Buy site!
Can’t wait to hear your tips! As usual, give us a Trendy Shout!
I love throwing parties like this for real! They are always so much fun!
What a cool wine opener! I love hosting get togethers!
We are a hosting home. I love filling our home with friends and family. We prep everything we can ahead of time!
We love wine in our home and that looks awesome! I love your Wonder Woman outfit too. If I dressed up this year, I would have worn that costume!
Lol, we don’t have this problem in my house. We finish our wine here, but I really need one of these–just in case.
I haven’t heard about this wine opener although my husband is a wine drinker. and I think this is the best Christmas gift idea for him and our favorite brand of wine. I am sure that it’s definitely going to beat it with joy.
This is a cool idea. Although wine always tend to emptied every time we party. We need more wine!
While I don’t have gatherings often, there’s always a reason to have wine! Cheers to the holidays
These are all great tips of things to do before any party. The Coravin Model Two Wine System sounds like a great item to have and an awesome money saver as well too. Thanks for sharing this awesome tool, the tips and your awesome costume.
Haven’t think for of this. Really great idea!! Will surely try this next year!!
omg wow what a great way to keep the body of the wine but still be able to serve it. Im going to def want to check this out asap.

I hadn’t heard of this before. I have a friend that always has open wine bottles that might like this.
I totally need this. We often waste half a bottle because we’re just two people. Thanks!
I love the holidays and they bring. Your costumes rock and the decor too!
Looks like a nifty contraption. Also looks like you guys had a bunch of fun. I Love the Wonder Woman costume.
love all the deco!! The holiday season is my favorite time of the year to get together with friends and family!!
Oh how nice! I love all the decor, it’s such a great time of year!
We actually have a grape juice we like to drink that has a cork. We can never drink the entire bottle and saving it doesn’t turn out well. Love this!
Now THIS is quite handy! I’ve always hated opening a bottle to just top off glasses only for everyone to go home shortly after and the bottle be left open.
The wine opener sounds like a must have for anyone who hosts parties. I also hate all of the wasted wine at the end of the night, so I need to add this to our liquor cabinet stash. And, you are super adorable in your Wonder Woman costume!

I love hosting dinners with friends and Coravin is something that we can definitely use at home! I can’t wait to get one!
That wine opener is everything! I love that it makes life convenient especially during parties and gatherings! Thanks for the part tips!
Love that wine bottle gadget that you have there. It’s definitely a great way to serve wine when you have people over. Thanks for the tips about planning a party!
What a great idea, the Coravin is something I keep seeing on social media now. I think it will be a great addition to any home that is entertaining guests this holiday season for sure.
I love this! This is great when I just want to have a glass of wine. This is a great gift idea too!
That is a neat tool. I know a few wine lovers who would enjoy this.
Such a cute little st up you have! I love drinking and trying different wines this time of year – there is just something about the holidays haha! Love it!
This is SO cool. I am definitely getting my fiance one of these for Christmas.
That is so cool! My brother is a wine enthusiast, this would make such a great holiday gift for him.
I have a couple of friends who are into wine. This would be right up their alley.
Great tips for the hostess! We have several holiday parties planned for the season and these will certainly help. Paper plates are my go-to. Such easy clean-up.
This is really awesome! Hosting a party will be so much fun!
First of all, your Halloween decor and costume are SO cute! Love it! Second, I really miss wine… lol
This looks so nice to have all year round. I am going to look for it in Best Buy.

This sounds like an amazing system! I can’t wait to try this gadget. I feel like my wine is going to be so much better now!
I could sure use this gadget! With me being the only person that drinks wine in household, I pour out a lot of wine.
Wow that looks awesome! I drink a ton of wine, so I would love that!
This would be great for wine lovers out there. I know someone who would love to have this.
This looks like a great gadget… I am a non alcoholic so this would be a perfect present for my friends this holiday season 😄
You look great in your costume! Thanks for the share. This is definitely wine-drinking season!

This is totally AMAZING!! I need to get one of those! Coravin Corks!! 🙂
I don’t drink, but that sounds like a super useful system. I wish it worked for bottles of juice or soda!

This sounds like a great gadget to have on hand if you have wine on occasion but not enough to go through several bottles! I generally end up using leftover bottles for cooking, but it would be nice to not have to plan recipes around them on occasion and save my really good wines for drinking!
Your costume was fabulous!! I love that wine system. That would be a perfect gift for one of my friends
The Coravin sounds like a great gadget to have. We enjoy our wine so none goes to waste but it would still be handy to have.
It looks like you had a fabulous Halloween party! We have always been big on Halloween at our house.
This is such a great gift for my girlfriends who love their wine! I love that the Coravin will help make the wine last longer! Some bottles are so good you do not want them to go bad.
This may be the coolest gadget I have seen in a long time. My daughter would love this.
This is so awesome. I love hosting get togethers so this will definitely help.
This is most definitely amazing! I just opened a bottle of red wine because I had a craving for it and I know that I won’t be able to finish it. Would love this Coravin gadget!
The Coravin is so cool. I need to pick up one as a gift for my wine loving close friend. She would love it.
Oh how clever is that! I love that the cork stay right where it is. Great party ideas!
I need to get my parents a Coravin Model Two Wine System. They love wine and make their own a few times a year. This will be a great gift for the holidays.
My husband could use this! He often does not finish his wine for a few days and it goes to waste.
Now that is a great idea. Who knew you could drink a glass then reseal it for a year and it still be good.
It is great – I can see it being useful for so many people who want a glass once in a while but don’t want a whole bottle.
YES! This is freaking amazing! I am so excited to find something cool to give my husband this year.
Now that is an interesting sounding gadget and the perfect present for wine lovers, I like how it allows the cork to reseal itself so you are compromising the wine in anyway.
The reason we don’t buy wine or open it if we have it is that we want one glass, or two then what? I love this system and will definitely try it.
What a great product. My husband drinks wine on occasion so this would be great for making his wine last longer.
This is perfect for wine lovers like me who end up with a little left in the bottle and hate knowing it’ll lose it’s freshness when I recork it. Love Best Buy!
oh wow! that is brilliant! I’m a wine fanatic and anything that will keep its freshness, I’m all for it. Love this product.
These are great tips for hosting a party! I am not much of a wine drinker but when we do buy a bottle it takes us (well hubs) a while to drink it so this may come in handy for us!
That is a really good idea! I am not a huge wine drinker either so something like this would be perfect for me. My brother and sister-in-law love to drink wine but they do take a long time to drink it I think I might get them something like this for Christmas.
The Coravin Model Two Wine System looks unique and it’s great for wine lovers. We will have our Halloween party next weekend. I know we’re too late but we’re still excited ’cause we’re going to play a murder mystery game!
I’m not a wine drinker so this isn’t a problem for me, but I’m not the biggest fan of waste so this is a brilliant idea to help reduce the waste. The Coravin looks like an easy way to save the leftover wine!
I do love wine so I would love a product like this for my home! This is a great gift idea for my holiday list I am creating! Thanks for sharing it!
Looks like you had yourself a fun Halloween party! Always nice when you don’t have to waste a half used bottle of wine or else feel obliged to finish it off. This seems like a very useful product for people who like to host parties at their homes.
It would definitely keep things neat and tidy. It seems easy to use too.
I love a good party at this time of the year. The wine looks great!
corinne & kirsty
That’s a really ingenuous item. I don’t drink wine often but when I meet with friends, I always bring a bottle so this would be perfect
Nice! I don’t drink wine, but I know many people who do. I’ll have to share this with my Mom, who does enjoy wine.
Halloween is the kick off to tons of parties, family gatherings and church functions. Busy until the end of the year. Enjoy your tips and looks like you know how to throw a party.
The holiday season is my favorite time of the year! I love throwing parties and this one looks like a winner to me.
