Come one! Come All! The gentlemen of the household awoke to find invitations to a Silly Supper Sideshow on the breakfast table…
At six p.m. sharp, I ushered the anxious attendees to the porch …
… where they sat down to place their orders for the guaranteed four course fiasco!
Going from the silly descriptions, they placed their orders for all four courses at the beginning of the meal. They had to get each item one time and couldn’t have any repeats.
I had prepared everything earlier in the day and had it in the kitchen in covered dishes. It was a little crazy the first go round, but once I figured out my system it went pretty quickly.
Honey, ever the puzzler, did pretty well with his selections. His first course consisted of rabbit rations (lettuce), pre-pickle (cucumber), skinny dip (dressing), a debris duster (napkin) and a canoodle (spoon). He didn’t order anything to drink though!
Most of the courses were much more hysterical. A few of my favorites were this one …
… and this one full of eating implements and salad dressing!
When served on a regular day, the supper would consist of salad, ham, potatoes, broccoli and strawberry shortcake.
It was a crazy fun evening and one we’ll definitely do again. I mean, they’ve already asked for a repeat tomorrow night, for crying out loud!
I know it’s a whole 365 days away, but if you’d like to recreate the fun for your family, click on the link below to download the file with the invitation, menus, food key and course cards.
I can’t take credit for thinking up this silly supper idea. I originally read about the Fool’s Cafe on the My Insanity blog last year. I loved it so much that I made a note on my calendar so I wouldn’t forget.
I hope y’all had a fun April Fool’s Day. It’s just the sort of holiday we love celebrating around these parts. And with everyone finally well and the gorgeous spring weather, it was triple the fun!!
