What's Ladies Night without Cocktails?

Fall offers a plethora of flavors that inspire some really fun cocktail ideas for your ladies night festivities. From pumpkin to apple and spices like nutmeg and cinnamon, warm flavors abound and can be worked into a multitude of drinks to make for your get together.

The most important thing about the appetizers for your ladies night gathering is that they be easily eaten while holding that cocktail in your other hand, and that means finger foods. This yummy Hot Crab Dip is a great option to ward off the chill.

Dinner is Served

Your ladies night party on the patio wouldn't be complete without an equally tasty main dish to serve to your guests. Fresh herbs are still available this time of year and add an earthy, healthy flair to any main dish. fall patio
