The weather outside is still frightful and I am finding myself itching for some celebration…some food, some friends, and warmth. In the middle of winter, what better way to achieve those things than with a soup party.
Today I am sharing some ideas and links for you to check out to put your own soup party together.
Get clever with your decor and don’t forget to include recipe cards for your soups! Check out Babs’s Babble for lots of great soup party ideas, including homemade placemats and a soup trophy.
Round up the crockpots and set up a soup bar (via Hunters of Happiness)…
…Or serve your soups right off the stove on slate board (via Birchbox Blog).
Visit Hoosier Homemade for ideas for not only a soup party, but a soup swap. I love that her accompaniments and decor are all so inexpensive and doable on a budget!
Bread goes with soup like peanut butter goes with jelly. You can give lots of options and be as elaborate or simple in your display as you would like (via Style Me Pretty).
Serve up some craft brews to compliment your soup selection like the ladies at Little Yellow Couch did.
Keep your decor simple, warm, and a little rustic. This Chalkboard Banner DIY from SNAP! would be perfect and I love that it is totally customizable to your message. “Welcome”, “Soup’s On”, “Stay Warm”, “Eat Up”, and “Enjoy” would all be great greetings.
Send your guests home with some soup mix. This Five Bean Soup from Back to Her Roots is an easy one to assemble and package, not to mention how inexpensive dried beans are.
Use painted tin cans as utensil holders, centerpieces, and anything in between. How frugal is that? (via For the Love)
Get creative with your containers and utensils. These soup containers and spoons from Garnish are just perfect for a soup party.
Check out The Kitchn for some other tips for putting together the menu for your soup party, including the dessert!
Are you inspired yet? I know I am already talking to my husband about hosting a soup party after putting this post together. (Pretty please, Mr. CB?) Enjoy!
