Soup and Salad Night Starring Brava Rooster
Welcome dish lovers it is our favorite day of the week. Let's all link up and head over to Susan's Tablescape Thursday. Since I have such a small table, I couldn't fit all the pieces from my Brava Rooster win, so I decided to do a soup and salad night with them and add the wonderful mugs in for some yummy warm cider.
I decided to jump on the bandwagon and grab some weeds from the pasture and try a fallish arrangement. It's a first attempt. I really appreciate all you amazing tablescapers who WOW us every week with amazing centerpieces, its alot of work and takes tons of talent. My hat is off to you all!
See those little hens meandering around the table? They decided to show up and join the party. It was so nice of them to hold the salt and pepper for us.
Is it just me or have you ever set the table and had to remove stuff because it looks crowded, then when you photograph it, realize it is sparse looking? Any suggestions?
I tried to get a little of the afternoon sun in, after all, I only have 7 windows in the dining room! Old farmhouses, every room has had several other purposes over time. The dining room was the original porch. Always interesting to deal with.
More light coming in.
Did you notice, I have a new addition to my dish family. I scored a great set of six Libbey Gold Leaf Goblets on EBay. They are a perfect addition of fall.
I am really enjoying these Roosters. These mugs are so cute. They are very large and can hold alot of yummy goodness. There are Rooster's on both sides. Such great quality!
These bowls hold over 3 cups of soup each with plenty of room for cheese, croutons or what ever you can dream up for a topping. This is just perfect for this hearty soup lovin bunch.
See Mr. Rooster on the salad plate? He is so handsome and different than the one on the mug.
These pewter hens came from eBay too. Can you really have to many hens and roosters?
Another look at the Libbey Gold leaf and the mugs.
Mrs. Hen is ready to provide you with salt if you like.
A view from the other side. I just noticed the "weeds" look different from the back. The colors are so pretty. I am really having fun setting tables. I am learning something new each week. This weeks lesson? Spraying your tablecloth with wrinkle releaser then tossing in the dryer is NO substitution for ironing!
Tonight we are having, warm apple cider or sparkling cider, Pinto bean soup with sausage meatballs and corn muffins. Thanks for stopping by and I cant wait to see this weeks tables. I bet there will be some Spooky ones!
