  1. Such a fun and whimsical table! Love the snooty waiters! We have a couple items of the ‘fat chefs’ but not enough for a table. Might have to get more in this collection!! And I love the chairs decorated with the black and white towels with parsley!

  5. What a cute, cute, CUTE setting, Jenna! I’m not only lovin’ the neat artwork and drinkware you painted to work with the plates and menu, but that parsley as a chair embellishment is just the bee’s knees!!! You and I are both fans of snooty waiters, and I’m diggin’ the way yours have gathered together to serve you! Cute idea to combine the word plates with those with the waiters, and I love the way you so easily and expertly incorporated foods of all kinds!

    Too Cute!!! I love the waiters! Great table, it looks so fun with the checked table cloth and the zebra chargers- that all makes those funny little guys pop off the orange plates. You kicked it up a notch with the chair decor 🙂

    • The MC butter dome is actually one of her more affordable pieces, I have been using mine everyday for years { I keep a tub of soft margarine in it in the fridge} and it looks brand new. I have been considering buying some of her metal plates too. Thanks for the fun comments!

    .79 ! What a deal, and they are so cute.
    This is a wonderful table, so much fun! And they can freshen their breath with the parsley!
    Bad waiters get a bad tip! Plus I let the owner know. With the economy the way it is, they need the customers to come back. Haven’t had a bad waiter lately, they all need the job! 🙂
