Ah, the Edwardian times. Such odd table dressings, such odd food. No other time in the 20th century comes to mind, except, maybe, the 1950’s and 1960’s, when food on the table was both edible and took such strange and bizarre forms.
If you fancy a bit of a whimsical table decoration for Thursday, why not try to make funny animals out of fruits and vegetables. It’s like Cake Wrecks. But not.
These come from Good Housekeeping, November, 1908

That is really, really weird. I get really put off my food with odd table stuff!! I guess it also passed for entertainment back then?!
