Lipstick on a Pig

Have you heard the expression of Lipstick on a Pig? 

As I was touring the downtown today, I ran across this cute little pig dressed up for spring.

Many of the merchants decorate the entrance to their stores by dressing up pigs.

This particular pig inspired me to prepare a light luncheon for me and my husband.

I decided to use a small pig for a centerpiece. 
I purchased this pig at Cracker Barrel. 

I thought a red flower tablecloth would brighten my table. 

I also found the red salad plates from Cracker Barrel that match the pig.  I paired it with white napkins and matching rings from Pier One.

I cooked some low calorie cabbage beef  soup and served it with pink lemonade.

Oh, Yes the pig came out in me ! I made some cornbread to go along with our soup.

It was a delicious lunch! 

Hope you have a great week and get inspired from your surroundings!

Thanks for stopping in - JoAnn.
