Proud as a Peacock!
The large train is used in mating rituals and courtship displays. It can be arched into a magnificent fan that reaches across the bird's back and touches the ground on either side. Females are believed to choose their mates according to the size, color, and quality of these outrageous feather trains.
The term "peacock" is commonly used to refer to birds of both sexes. Technically, only males are peacocks. Females are peahens, and together, they are called peafowl.
I bought these pretty Peacock plates at Home Goods. I know Alycia from Table Twenty-One recently did a tablescape with the same dishes. I believe her Mother purchased them for her.
The crystal candle holder my husband and I found at Pottery World.
I love that store! It is kind of pricey, though.
I am using my trusty pillow cases again. So much better covering my red chairs.
