  1. Lora, your potato bar is so pretty with the printable you made and those adorable little ceramic potatoes to fill!!! I’ve never seen those before ~ super cute! Sorry I didn’t comment before; I was reading on one of the last days at school before the Christmas break and didn’t finish. I love how we had a similar idea!! Crunchy potato skins are what we like in this family. 🙂

    Hope your Christmas was extra special! Happy New Year!!!
    Barb 🙂

      Thanks, Barb!

  2. such clever little potato bowls! never saw them before but will be looking for them now. we’ve been hosting baked potato bars since the 80s when our kids were in high school & college. great for both big groups or small cozy times. last nite we hosted our church youth. I did 2 crockpots, one with chili the other with cheese, broccoli & ham. toppings included grilled onions, corn, black beans & avocados in addition to many you suggested. a big green salad & rolls rounded out the evening. we have celiac kids in our group so this is a great menu for everyone. wish I’d seen this yesterday so I could’ve used the printable.

      Definitely, Julie! Been enjoying the spuds all week!

  5. I’m with you – styling and decorating is much more my thang. I hate to cook and will never be a food blogger! Love your set up. It’s precious and perfect for a potato station! And how cute are those potato bowls? I’ll tell ya, SUPER cute! Thanks so much for putting in the effort to join us today. You are greatly appreciated! Merry Christmas

      I do love cooking, but blogging about it these days with everyone’s different dietary needs-no thanks! Years ago I sold a oversized potato serving dish like this with a matching lid. It was so cool; never seen another one. Kinda wished I would have kept it:( Have a Merry Christmas, Cindy!

  6. A baked potato bar is a wonderful and easy way to entertain guests. Love those ceramic potato bowls. I’ve never seen anything like them!

    1. Lora Bloomquist says:

      I’m so surprised no one else has seen them, Paula! They’re such a 70’s thing, when everyone was going to pottery class. Bet everyone will start noticing them now;) Merry Christmas!

  7. This is a fun idea. All of you have come up with easy, fun and great ideas.

    Thanks for the inspiration.
