Often my best themed lunches are ones I make for other people. I wanted some inspiration so I arranged to make lunch for a co-worker. She wanted the theme and food to be a surprise. I picked elephants since it is the theme of her daughter’s nursery and salad because she often buys salads for lunch. She loved it!
