This year we served cheese and crackers, snacks and soups.
The table is set using my green and red plaid tablecloth - and we always use the Holly dishes that I've collected over the years. The first piece of Holly was purchases in West Bend, Wisconsin in the late 60s, when it was a brand new product. Now these Holly dishes are considered antiques.
The train centerpiece is one I painted at our weekly ceramics group in California. The three cars are candy dishes and always carry a cargo of M&Ms. Our kids and grandsons can't wait for the cargo to be uploaded each year.The holly glasses were purchased at Woolworth Dime Store in the 80s - all the Woolworths that we ever shopped at are now closed. I loved that store.
The soup bar included Macaroni and Cheese soup, Bratwurst Vegetable Soup and Corn Chowder
Toppings for the soups - croutons, shredded cheese, bacon and green onions
It was a wonderful evening - full of fun and good food - Allll Aboooooard!
