All of the lovely plantation homes in the South has pineapples.  They are a sign of hospitality!  There is even a brass pineapple on the hearth which you can see in the next picture.

A few pieces of the original china still exist.

As we left the dining room, we walked down the hallway to a large open room which had a few more tabletop goodies!

Has you ever seen a silver barbeque pit?

It does have the look of one doesn’t it?  But it’s actually a roast beef server!

This room has French doors that exit to the back porch and beyond to the outdoor kitchen.  Here’s a peek though the door.  You can see part of the fabulous gardens though the other door.
Remember the original china?  They do have reproductions, approximately 600 pieces!  The lady to the right in the picture below is actually a server for a wedding that was going on.  She was dipping some type of soup or gumbo into cups for the guests.

Did I mention there is an onsite restaurant?  Actually, Houmas House is the home of Latil’s Landing Restaurant, CafĂ© Burnside, Le Petite Houmas Restaurant and the Wine Cellars of Houmas House.  For more info, go to HoumasHouse.com.
I hope you enjoyed this part of the Houmas House tour!  If you missed Part 1, click here.  Be sure to stop by Friday for the garden tour!  It is totally awesome!
