I was recently asked by my good friend Hailie to be a bridesmaid!
She is one of the sweetest and most genuine people I know, when my son had whooping cough at five weeks old she helped us so much with the other two kids! I really don’t know what we would have done without her! I met her through my oldest sons school about four years ago and she has been a good friend ever since.
Since I’ve known her Hailie has talked about her wedding to Matt. This girl has binders and planners full of wedding ideas and has always talked about having an engagement party. Since we love her so much we bridesmaids decided to throw her a surprise one!
As it turns out one of the other bridesmaids is practically a professional party planner! How lucky could we get? Paulina knew a perfect venue that Hailie would love that I had never even heard of, and she knew exactly how to arrange things to keep it shabby chic….definitely something I couldn’t have done! If it’s not symmetrical I panic, but Paulina truly has a talent of making things look pretty!
My contribution was food, are you super shocked? 😉. This week I will be sharing some of the recipes I used for Hailie surprise engagement party, starting with some Tomato-Basil Sandwich Roll Ups that I made!
I had seen the Pioneer Woman make some sandwich roll ups on her show but when I made them for a picnic they were not a super hit. The main complaint being that they were too dry, you had to dip them in a sauce and no one was thrilled with that. So I decided to combine some aspects of the Holiday Roll Ups I made at Christmas with these sandwich roll ups and these definitely went over well!
Tomato-Basil Sandwich Wraps
Sun dried tomato flavored wraps (got mine at Aldi!)
8oz cream cheese
1 pound turkey
1 pound ham
4 diced green onions
1 packet of ranch mix
1/2 tbs dried basil
Start by combining the cream cheese, ranch mix,basil, and plenty of pepper
Top that with shredded lettuce and sprinkle some green onion on top.
Cut them into inch to inch and a half pieces and serve!
