Wine Cork Guessing Game

This is a simple guessing game that any wine loving adult will appreciate.  It’s the traditional, “Guess how many ______ and win a prize” game!

When we host parties I like to add “simple activity stations” around the house to keep people busy in between conversations and gluttony.  As you can guess we had a wine party. 🙂

I placed the game right in the middle of the living room so people would notice it in passing and participate if they wanted to.  Needless to say everyone participated because I advertised that there would be a “PRIZE!!” (Or two hehehehe)

I started with this chalk board easel I got from Target for $3!  Using a pencil I lightly sketched out a fancy font I found on the internet, and went over it with my white chalk marker.

Next you need to fill a vessel with corks.  I already had the canister jar but you can use any jar you have on hand;  Flower vase, Large mason jar, Glass water pitcher, etc.

Large amounts of corks are sold at craft stores… or you can find about 1,000 of them in my craft room. 😀

Then I added a little stack of notecards for guests to write their answers on, and something for them to drop them in which was an oversized novelty wine glass.

I also added a bouquet of flowers to “liven things up a bit”… I mean, it’s a party!

Last thing – Buy decent wine for the prize.  I did two prizes, one for the two closest guesses.

It was my favorite kind of wine so I’m glad I could gift it!! 🙂 ❤

Towards the end of the night I went through each card to find the two winners.  Then I announced who they were.

Everyone clapped and cheered and then they raised me up on a chair and paraded me around the house chanting “Tara!  Tara!  Tara!”  It was awesome.

Just kidding.  That didn’t happen.  Anyway, that was it, simple and fun.  And it gave everyone a little something to look forward to at the end of the night.

I hope you’ll give it a try the next time you have friends over for wine!

Thanks for joining me! Good company always shortens the journey so I'm glad you're here. My name is Tara Benson and I'm 33 years young. I'm an energetic wife and mother with a wild imagination and a bold sense of humor. Consider me 100% right brained. I love music, art, interior design, gardening, baking, cooking, creating and hobby farming. I'm married to the best husband, Jason. It's safe to say we're opposites in many ways, but get along GREAT. We have two very intelligent and loving children, Owen (10) and Belle (4). I come from a huge family with three brothers, one sister and about a thousand others in the extended version. I'm also a mother to a mixed herd of animals (13 and counting...). I work in the mortgage industry from my home office. In 2015, my husband and I bought a 13 acre farm on the eastern plains of Colorado. We decided to live out our dreams and make the best of our lives for ourselves and our children. We want to teach them that hard work and creativity will always payoff at the end of the day. So welcome! Stick around a while and make yourself at home. -Tara
