I found the idea of writing on a plate with a white board marker from the lovely Yvonne at Stone Gable who is always creating something wonderful! I have always heard that running a deli or restaurant was a hard thing to do and today I agree! When I set up my tablescape on my deck, I had a little problem! Just as I was about to take pictures, look what came over in the black cloud! Okay, so it's not TEXAS-sized hail, but it hurt as I tried to save a potted plant! That is hail on my deck! My husband and kids helped me to bring everything inside...and then it cleared up and I reset everything up AGAIN!
I found these cute little sandwich baskets and papers at Wal-Mart, on clearance, this year! Today was the first time I used them and I did feel like I was running a deli!
The white plates are from a local store, Tai Pan Trading. The red plates are from Wal-Mart several years ago. The red placemats are from Wal-Mart last year. When you live in a small town like I do you appreciate having a Wal-Mart!
Once again I turned to use the Style Sisters napkin rings and paired them with bandanas! Love the bandanas with the checked paper! Don't you just love the color RED?
Here's a shot of our table! I enjoyed eating out here tonight! It's only set for four because my oldest daughter is at Girl's Camp an hour away! Hope they didn't get the hail and rain we received! They are in tents!
What would a Deli be without a Deli Sandwich? Tonight we are serving a Salami Fontinella Cheese Pesto Panini with Balsamic Sweet Onion Chips! Grab a Panini before you go! They are devine! I will post the recipe tomorrow.
It is alway a pleasure having you come to sit a spell on my Red Couch! Thanks for visiting!
