A few different posts will come of this party.  I will post about the 2 dips and also the homemade baguette.  Too bad I was too “into” the party…I forgot to take pictures of the wonderful spread.

The weather was wonderfully fall, so we also had a bonfire going outside, so guests could choose to spend their time indoors or get some fresh air outside by the fire.

There was a perfect amount of food and there was good conversation all around.

It was a wonderful party.  Now, stay tuned for the 2 posts on the dips and the baguette.
