Fabulous Feast

When we saw this stuffed emperor pheasant at an antique shop we knew he was coming home with us.  And even though he is usually perched on top of an old hutch, we thought what a great addition to a holiday table setting!

From Thanksgiving turkey to New Years Eve dinner, this tablescape gives off an air of rustic casualness while showing  a glimpse of glam.  We mixed antique china patterns with an array of gold chargers and alternated the pattern. This helps to make the table feel less formal and more inviting.

And we know our pheasant loved being the center of attention.
