Pea Soup

For this week’s Tablescape Thursday I did a trayscape for two. Since it involves food, I’m linking to Foodie Friday, also.


I’ve gotten so much use out of this blue wicker tray that I found last year at Big Lots. It’s just perfect for doing small ‘scapes.


These cute covered soup bowls are from Horchow.










Saute diced onions, carrots and celery in olive oil. Then add water, a bag of split peas, salt and pepper. Cook for 30-45 minutes until soup starts to thicken up. I usually then add some diced potatoes and then cook until the potatoes are done. This is even better cooked with ham and/or a ham bone.


Be sure to visit Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see lots of pretty table settings around blogland.


For Foodie Friday visit Michael at Designs By Gollum. There are always so many yummy recipes to choose from.

  5. Great trayscape. I just made split pea soup this year for the first time -- I have no idea what took me so long!

  6. Those covered soup bowls are SO pretty -- and unusual! They look great with that blue and green napkin you chose. Very inviting trayscape!

  10. Love the individual soup bowls - going to have to look into that.

    I really liked the turtle napkin rings, too. Where did you find those? I love the opal shell.

    Thanks for sharing,

  11. That's a lovely soup scape! We just finished the pea soup..I had frozen the leftover ham from Easter, so I wanted to get it out of the freezer. Made a lot and gave it all away! :)

  12. How adorable, Tammy! I LOVE those soup bowls. You always have the cutest bowls!
    Our Easter ham bones always leave us with marvelous pea soup!

  13. Melissa, I couldn't access your blog, so hopefully you'll check back here. The turtle napkin rings are by Jay Strongwater. I got them from either Nieman Marcus or Horchow. I've had them for about a year, so I'm not sure if they're still available.

  14. Hi Tammy! Your Lucy is so cute! Thanks for your visit today. And I luv the house on your header. Have a good Friday...Julian

  15. Tammy, This is one of my favorites...I think I said that about your last table with the little bee hive dishes. I love these little square bowls. They are too cute. I like how you served it all up on this cute wicker tray. I can see why you have gotten so much use out of it. This is darling!

  16. LOVE the covered soup bowls, and the iridescent napkin rings. So pretty!

  17. Adorable covered soup bowls!

  18. Hi Tammy,

    What a charming trayscape. I love those little tureens and those napkins are fantastic.

    My bee tablescape was inspired from yours...I was just so silly I couldn't remember where I saw it or I would have linked back to you, so thank you so much for the lovely the inspiration.

    Enjoy your day.

  19. Tammy...this is beautiful. I just love your soup bowls...and those napkin rings are gorgeous...pretty enough to be rings to wear! :-) Such a wonderful idea for a tablescape!

  20. HI Tammy! I love your table and those soup bowls are so cute.
    Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  21. What a yummy blog! You asked about my Frenchy fabric....I got it at a store here in Atlanta called "Karen's Fabrics". If you are interested, the number is 770-664-4090. It is linen and $40 a yard - yikes! But I got it on sale. Linda
