Pretty Bowl and Fruit Punch


I'm so excited...I just won the most beautiful serving bowl from Sarah. She hosted this giveaway a few weeks ago, and since I love pretty dishes, I just had to enter. She emailed me last week to tell me that I had actually won it! Woot!! It was delivered via UPS two days ago, and it is just so beautiful. Don't you think? I used it today to hold a fruit salad at a baby shower that I hosted. It worked perfectly! Thank you so much, Sarah!

At the shower that I mentioned above, I prepared a fantastic fruit punch. It was so simple, and I got quite a few compliments on it. Want the recipe? I thought so! I'll post it in a sec. First, I want to shout out to Heather who made the cake for the baby shower that I hosted. It was all-the-rave among the ladies at the shower, and I am so thankful to her for making it for me! She may have pictures of it on her blog in the next few days, so go check it out!

Ingredients:

1 gallon Hawaiian Punch
1 2-liter ginger ale
2 quarts pineapple sherbet

Directions:
In a very large punch bowl, pour in the chilled punch and chilled ginger ale. Stir gently. When it's time to serve, use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the sherbet and plop it into the bowl. Stir gently again and serve. *This could easily be halved for a smaller group.
