What's better than a good cold dip on a hot summer day? Nothing!
My family routinely has nights where we will just eat assortments of dips for dinner and we call it "dip night." It's fun and interactive and it's perfect for a party...especially a pool party!
I love a good play on words and when I heard about these newly repackaged Kraft Dips, I knew I had to do a "Take a Dip" themed pool party!
So, today I am going to show you how to set up your own dip party for your next summer get-together, and even how to take one of these Kraft Dips to another level of yum! 


I started by picking up three flavors of Kraft Dip at Wal-Mart; the Green Onion, the Bacon and Cheddar, and the French Onion. You can find them near the sour cream, close to the dairy aisle. 
Then, I used the Green Onion Dip as the base for a delicious party dip that never fails to impress my guests. 


Baked Potato Dip: 
1 Container Kraft Green Onion Dip
1 Cup Chopped, Cooked, Bacon
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar
1 Cup Green Onions
(Reserve some of each ingredient for topping)

Simply mix all the ingredients together and put back into the refrigerator until time to serve at your party.  Serve with your choice of chips. I prefer corn chips because they are nice and sturdy!

How easy is that? 
You could put it together in a snap when you have guests coming over at the last minute. 

For the party set-up, I kept it simple and cute. 
The "tablecloth" is two beach towels that we picked up at Wal-Mart while we were there getting the Kraft Dip. They were on clearance and they inspired the entire color scheme of the party. Beach towels come in such vibrant colors that they are the perfect addition to any tabletop!
I displayed the dips on tall cylindrical vases, filled with water and food coloring to mimic the pool water behind the table. Each cylinder is topped with a simple plastic disposable tray and a dip bowl. I like the clear plastic trays because they really allow you to see the cylinders underneath. 
To identify each dip, I picked up these cute little cloud shapes at the craft store and glued them to a dowel. Then, I used a paint marker to write the names of each dip. 
Each dip is also served with a different variety of chip, to give the table texture.  
How yummy does this look?  
It's a crowd pleaser!


 For additional fun on the table, I picked up these wooden letters and painted them pink, and then used some Mod Podge and glitter to give them a "dipped" look.  






There's still plenty of summertime left to enjoy some dip parties of your own!
So, pick up some Kraft Dip today and leave me a comment to show me your pool party!

  2. I just love summer parties and it is really fun to plan them, especially pool parties. This summer I am also going to host a party at best Los Angeles event venues and will definitely try your baked potato recipe.
