Since I've spent a lot of time at home trying to shake this sinus/ear infection along with hubby we've had our share of soup and sandwiches!
Join us for some Salad, Soup and Sandwiches!
You might be thinking she forgot the soup bowls!
Well not quite but I did incorporate them into the centerpiece! The greens are a faux placemat made to look like cabbage leaves that I pushed down into the salad bowl to add some layering and color!
I put out coffee or tea mugs with snowflakes since it's very much wintery here and I filled some juice glasses with mini saltine crackers for the soup (or you can toss them on the salad too!)
I've been wanting to use these deer tree branch salad plates again. I chose a placemat with pinecones and evergreens to be the backdrop and wicker placemats. The dinner plates were from Cracker Barrel quite a while back. The soup bowls came out of another collection by Home Essentials. Once again the bamboo flatware seemed to be the best choice! I chose a solid blue napkin to draw on the blue coloring from the birds on the salad plates.
The plan is to use the wooden bowl for the salad to serve from. Of course the soup bowls and leaf placemat has to be removed first. After salad is served then the soup will follow with simple grilled cheese sandwiches.
It started snowing last night and we received more this morning. Weather wise this has been a most unusual January for us. The temps have been mild which makes winter so much more tolerable.
