Pheasants have always been a symbol of family for us. Pheasant hunting season meant we would drive all night to the farm and stay with my grandparents. Cousins would come, Grandma would bake and there would be pheasant for dinner. Henrietta's homeland is the land of the pheasant. So it is only fitting that this great symbol be part of the dinner table beyond being the actual dinner. So this week's table is a guest spot from mom's house featuring her Fitz and Floyd pieces with a little help from Lenox.
I love the soup tureen. He looks so stately sitting there in the center of the table. And the pheasant feather handle is so great!
At Christmas, mom decorates her entire tree in a pheasant theme and it is beautiful! I will be posting pictures as part of a tree parade post.
All of these pieces have been collected over the years by mom:
Place settings - Lenox, Kelly
Soup tureen, candleholders, pitcher and serving platter - Fitz and Floyd, 1990
Silverware - Mikasa Romancing
Appetizer pick - mudpie oakleaf/pheasant, TJ Maxx
Stemware - Mikasa Flame D' Amore
Pheasant feather placemats - Wal-Mart, years ago
