Spider Tablescape


Hi everyone!  Zoulah welcomes you to Centerpiece Wednesday and Tablescape Thursday.  Zoulah is so happy to bring you a Spider Tablescape in honor of her pet spider.    His name is Leggs.  He is rather big shy so this is the only shot we will have of him.


This is the individual place setting that Zoulah set.  That Zoulah is so clever.  She even showed us how to make spider webs in our Tomato Basil soup and included a spider.

 

I watched Zoulah do the web and it is really easy.  Most of you know how to do it, but just in case you don't, I've included the directions below.  Zoulah had the Red Couch children made webs on their soup before slurping eating their soup.


Cream Web Directions:

1.  Put cream in a baggy or squirt container.  If using a baggy, put tiny hole in corner. 
2.  Put drops of cream in a circle on the soup nearest the rim of the soup bowl and then, with skewer, drag the dots together.  Then do the same in the center of the soup.  You now have two circles.   
4.  Then drag about seven lines from one circle (from the inside to outside)  to another circle to make the web effect.  It was fun for the Red Couch Kids.

Zoulah served soup and Spider Bread.  Click HERE for yesterday's post on Spider Bread.


Here's a close up shot of the Spider Bread.


Oooh, is there candy in the spider glasses?  What fun to have some spider skewers!  Click HERE for my post on candy skewers.


What's for dessert?  Cupcakes, of course!


Said the spider, "I'm guarding these cupcakes!  You are going to have to get past me to get one."


Here's a sideview.  Zoulah found these fun spider web glasses at a Smith's grocery store.


Before Zoulah set the table, Leggs was busy making webs on the chairs.



Here's is a final shot, an overhead view, of the table.


Zoulah has had so much fun showing you her Spider Table tonight in honor of Leggs.  Thanks for stopping by Red Couch Recipes.
