So as the plan is actually to make it to some events in the upcoming months, I am trying to take things out and make an inventory of what we have and what we still need. I had dug out the feast gear and was tallying it all on a spreadsheet ( welcome to my own special form of OCD) when the boys and I decided it would be fun to have a Spring Feast, this evening.
Feast gear is one thing I have a lot of as I've been working on putting together our collection for a few years now, due to dancing at Renaissance Faires. It can be done quite inexpensively. Most of our items were picked up at local thrift shops, excepting the stoneware pottery which I bought from an acquaintance who is a merchant at faires we frequent. This isn't all we have, but this is what we needed for dinner. I am sure that I will probably pick up more pieces but I think this looks good enough to be presentable. Eventually Geneviève wants to have a go at carving some bowls and we might try wood burning some designs on the wood chargers.
I wish I were as prepared in other areas....
