Last Sunday, we were invited for potluck lunch to a friend's house, but her husband was called to work so she canceled on the last minute. We had already prepared what we were going to bring so the rest of us just decided to push through with the pot luck and have it at home. I offered since I already had this table set up for my tablescape contribution on my blog for this week.
I bought this pair of big bucks from the antique store on our shopping trip last week after our walk. I forgot to show them when I showed the other items cause they were in boxes.
John bought the smaller wrought iron does from a store in St. Francisville after Christmas last year. They were 75% off. I only wanted 2 but he bought all of them, lol.
I bought the deer napkin rings from Utah during our trip there last summer. The bone flatware are from Horchow or Neiman Marcus. They are very heavy.
The dinner plates are American Atelier's Mehndi Brown.
The salad plates featuring different animals that get hunted were from Z Gallerie. I used wooden plate chargers but the 2 at the end of the table are cross sections of a tree trunk.
Wine glasses have game birds and hunting animals on them. They are Ebay finds. I paired them with my green goblets.
Spode duck S& P shakers from HG in FL. The squirrel is from a local antique shop. I bought the antler candle holders from a Filipina who moved to another state. I can't remember where the squirrel S & P shakers are from.
John wanted me to take a video to make the deer look like they are walking, lol. I have not watched the video.
Here are my lady guests with me. I set the buffet table on the kitchen counter. We had egg rolls, pancit palabok, veggie omelets, sotanghon with patola, sauteed veggies with mushrooms, ginataang bilo bilo and of course rice and dessert. Sorry if you are not familiar with the dish names, they are mostly Filipino food.
I set the round table in the kitchen for the kids. We had 3 kid guests. I used the same ghost plates that I have shown a few weeks ago, I thought the kids would enjoy having a Halloween theme. We gave the younger kids their meals first and then got ours.
And here we are! We all had a lot of fun even though it was a last minute planning.
Below is our dessert table which some of you have already seen from the tea parties yesterday.
Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you get to visit our hostesses too and their other participants. Happy Halloween to all!
