Fall Patio Parties

My oldest sister is about to have her 3rd little one. (Can't wait!! Her kids are ADORABLE! So I can only imagine how precious this little girl is going to be!)

With my other sisters in hand (there are 5 of us sisters in all) we threw her a girls night out baby shower. There were lights, lanterns, even a small sofa with plum pillows to give this fall girls night out a little sophistication. It was so much fun sitting out on the patio as it got dark. Something about globe nights at night that feel magical.

And of course, good food!!
We had cookies with chocolate milk, grilled cheese, tomato basil soup in mason jars, chicken ceaser salad, a smores bar and sheep dip.

Cookies bar with chocolate milk.

Smores bar with a fire vase to cook them over. 

 Chicken ceasar salad out of a pumpkin.

And of course my families favorite Sheep Dip
My family loves this stuff! It's a great holiday appetizer. 
Want to try it? 
I will take that as a yes! :)

You will need:
  • 8oz Cream Cheese
  • 8oz Sour Cream 
  • 1 Cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 large jar of armour dried beef chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions chopped
  • 1 T. Worcestershire Sauce
  • Garlic salt to taste 
  • 1 loaf Shepherd bread (round) or french bread 

Use an electric mixer to beat the cream cheese & sour cream together.  When smooth add the cheddar cheese and other ingredients. 

Cut off the top of the bread and save the top. Hollow out the inside of the bread making a bread bowl and break the bread that came out into bite sized pieces. 

Set the oven to 350 degrees. Place the bread bowl on a baking sheet and fill it with the cream cheese mixture. Place the bit sizes pieces of bread around the bowl and pop it in the oven for one hour. Every 15 minutes you will need to turn the bread pieces to make sure they are getting toasty and not burning. The last 15 minutes put the top of the bread back on the bowl and let it finish cooking. 

And Ta-Da! A great dipping treat. Salty goodies is what it is. Try it this holiday. 
Maybe it will become your families favorite too. 

Happy Planning!
