The Dumb Supper is an old tradition that started as a love spell of sorts. Often held in abandoned houses, Dumb Suppers were served at midnight in complete silence. The hostess, or hostesses, would wait to see a vision of their future husband coming to sit at the table. Eventually as women gained more rights marriage was less and less important to young women and the Dumb Supper was nearly forgotten. In recent decades it has been resurrected as a feast to honor the dead.

The Dumb Supper is still served in complete silence, but it is also eaten in reverse starting with dessert and ending with bread rolls. Sometimes extra place settings are placed upon the table to serve as an invitation to the dearly departed to join the diners.

My Dumb Supper scene depicts a witchy hostess serving the final course of bread rolls to her disguised guests. Each wears a skull mask, but what is this? Not enough dinner rolls to go around? Perhaps not all of those skulls are masks! When none can speak then who can tell?
