Campbell’s Vegetable Soup in the Tablescape

Today I’m sharing a table set for two in the breakfast area and on the menu is a can of Campbell’s vegetable soup!  It’s mmmm, mmmm, good! Yes, I know it’s a 100 degrees outside but I’ve got a summer cold so I thought a can of soup would help.  I’m just coming down with it and Savannah is just getting over it.
I started with green placemats topped with square red plates (JCP).  The Campbell’s Soup bowls are from the Salvation Army.  My gumbo spoons were purchased from a yard sale.  I got 48 NEW gumbo soups for $8!  They were from a restaurant that went out of business.  I bought plenty because in Louisiana we like our gumbo! and it’s something easy to prepare for a crowd!
The napkins are from Target and the cute napkin rings from the Trash to Treasure Sale.
The tomato salt and pepper shakers were a recent purchase from the Dollar General Store.  The cute little corn bowl is from a yard sale.
Keeping with the vegetable theme, I topped ceramic candleholders with artichoke candleholders.
I’m sure you recognize the iced tea glasses from the Dollar Tree!  I think a lot of us have glasses from the Dollar Tree!

TIP OF THE DAY: When baking cookies, I use two sheets of parchment paper and one pan.  While one pan is baking, I put dough on the other sheet.  When the baked cookies come out of the oven, I slide the parchment paper and cookies from the pan onto a cooling rack.  I immediately put the other parchment paper with the dough onto the pan and put it in the oven to bake.  After a couple of minutes, I slide the cookies off the first sheet and put cookie dough on it, repeating until all the cookies are baked.  This save time and cuts my oven time in half.  With 100 degree weather, I don’t want my oven on any more than it has to be.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
