Bread & Salt

On my way to a housewarming party. In Germany and some other countries it is an old tradition to give bread and salt to a person that has just moved to a new home.  It comes from back in the days when these two things were the most important basic foods and is supposed to bring sedentary, prosperity and fertility (haha!). I guess today we just do it for good luck and because you can actually make something that simple look really nice.

I like getting my salt and bread gift at delicacy stores where they sell special salt blends and flavoured breads. Nicely wrapped et voilà!
