Welcome back to The Laura Plantation! Today we’re touring the dining room and the preparation room.
The table is set with some lovely gold trimmed china.
Gold trimmed serving pieces…
You will see many tables like this in antebellum homes. This is called a petticoat table. As the ladies walked by, they could check their petticoats in the mirror.
This is the preparation room where the cooked food would have been brought in from the kitchen prior to serving the family in the dining room.
This room is much more rustic than other antebellum homes that I have toured. Most have a nice butler’s pantry that also housed china.
Be sure and stop back by on Thursday afternoon! I’ll be posting Part 3 that will include a little more Creole history!
Thanks for stopping by!
