Champagne Thursday Week 1 Wrap-up

So, Champagne Thursday is basically an evening filled with yummy appetizers, cocktails, and watching So You Think You Can Dance! This past Thursday was the official first champagne Thursday, and it was lots of fun! Here's pictures of the food setup.
I wanted to go with a pretty simple setup, I overlapped linen napkins to create a sort of argyle pattern, filled a giant margarita glass with green food-colored water and floating candles, and then it was time for the food!
On the menu this week:
-fruit (watermelon, green apples, and grapes)
-veggies and dip
-pork/asparagus rolls (more to come on that)
-champagne (of course!)
-beer (for the boys)
-shrimp dip ( recipe below picture) with wheat thins
I got this recipe out of the Kraft Food and Family Magazine, and let me tell you it is a crowd pleaser! Doesn't it look yummy in the picture? Here's the recipe:

Philly Shrimp Cocktail Dip

1 package (8 oz.) Philadelphia cream cheese, softened
3/4 lb. cooked shrimp, chopped
3/4 cup Kraft cocktail sauce
1/4 cup Kraft shredded parmesan cheese
2 green onions sliced

1. Spread cream cheese onto the bottom of a 9 inch pie plate or shallow bowl. Toss shrimp with cocktail sauce; spread over cream cheese.

2. Sprinkle parmesan cheese and onions.

3. Serve with wheat crackers.

4. Enjoy! 

Serve this at your next gathering and your guests WILL NOT be disappointed!

THIS was my favorite dance of the evening. Kayla and Max partner up  for a Samba! I am a Kayla fan all the way! Enjoy the video! I can't wait to see the dances next week!
