Does Grazing the Table

We have 2 birthday celebrants in the family on October 7, my son Jed who turns 41 (Geez, I am getting old, lol)  and John's daughter's son Wren who turns 4, so I thought I will set this table for them. My son is a hunter and Wren loves animals.
Happy Birthday, Jed and Wren. Love you both!
 Here is Jed with his twin nieces. He really spoils them and they just adore him!
 And this is Wren with his newborn baby brother. Aren't they just the most precious and cutest boys?
And here are the does grazing the table. I hope the table is masculine enough.
 My friend from Natchez, Brenda, gave me these candle holders last Christmas. They are perfect for Fall and I love them.

 I used our dark brown bamboo flatware set.
Brown and beige American Atelier dinnerware in "Mehndi" pattern. The plate chargers are wooden and oval from Horchow. I have had them for several years now. 
 I bought the really heavy iron rustic deer from Grandmother's Buttons in St. Francisville, MS a few years ago. They were 90% off and I think John and I bought them all, lol. I just spread them all over the table.

 The amber "iris" goblets were from Horchow from years ago and I bought the wine glasses with autumn leaves from the Dollar Store.
 I was organizing the garage and one of the bins' labels showed that my orange Bavarian Tirschenreuth teapot is there so I took it out. I like using it in the Fall because of its colors. It did not have any matching sugar and creamer servers so I just used my white medallion ones. For the tea cups (since I have not found my matching ones yet), I just used Polish pottery with predominantly orange in colors and 2 postale mugs with orange and also used my hunt scene cup and saucer.

Thank you so much for your visits. I also like to thank the hostesses for the parties that I am participating in.
