Marvelous Marble

A Valentine's Day party without wine would simply be incomplete. Show your guests that you're truly the hostess with the mostess as you refill their empty glasses without having to retreat to the kitchen. Instead of heading to the fridge every time a guest needs their wine glass filled, keep this stunning marble wine cooler out during the party. The marble wine cooler naturally helps keep wine chilled, and it can be used as a vase for fresh-cut flowers when you're not enjoying a glass of your favorite Chardonnay.
