For my Son Jed, the Hunter



We are approaching hunting season here. It starts on October 1st. But my son Jed, has already been hunting in Florida on private property so I thought I would dedicate this tablescape especially to him, and to all the hunters out there.



Here is Jed. He is a typical guy, he likes to hunt and fish.


See my antler? The owner of the hunting store where we bought Jed's birthday present gave it to me.



I added some faux persimmons and an orb with ferns and moss in the bowl with antlers.




I am really getting a lot of use of this maple tree.

I used my salad plates with a rabbit, deer and a platter with a wild boar. I also have a salad plate with a wild boar but I only set a table for 2.


I cannot believe that I do not have any plain brown dinner plates, out of over 70 sets of dishes that we own. So, I used my brown Staffordshire Royal Mail transferware for dinner plates. I used 2 types of plate chargers, layered, a taupe ceramic and a cross section of a wood trunk.

I thought the bone flatware would blend well with everything else.




I wanted to use my monkey napkin rings but I could not remember where I kept them, so I used the lions instead.



I also used a horn carving knife and fork.



I mixed amber goblets and green wine stems




There is the deer plate. It's a buck, see the antlers?

I bought the wood chargers from Z Gallerie a year or 2 ago. I only have 2 because the others that they had were all cracked so I did not buy more, but I really like what I got.
