Home Decor, Ode to the Chef

My kitchen is really my son’s domain…

By day he’s a residential contractor,

but nights and weekends he is all about cooking

My art studio is in an space just off the kitchen

and the top of my desk is a favorite spot for a seasonal or themed display

I recently created a kitchen themed tiered tray with chickens

vegetables, pigs, plates, and a chef

While filling the tray and arranging the vignette,

I decided to create an “Ode to the Chef” with a special Chef’s buffet

I got out a black and white checked runner

and proceeded to top it with all kinds of “chefy” and kitchen things

Chef MacPig anchors one end

with a chef beer glass and a painted tomato canister

There’s a Courtly Check butter keeper and compote filled with fruit,

a ribbon tied pail holding a cabbage and a set of measuring scoops

The tiered tray is in the center of this Chef’s Buffet

Piggies, veggies and chicks all on display

A chef with checked pants hangs from a nail

It’s part of the chick’s foot that’s on the top pail

A pig holds napkins handy just to the right

and there’s a stack of small plates when you’re ready for a bite

A chef is delivering dinner atop the radish plate,

the pasta looks so good, I can hardly wait!

And another chef is guarding prized cookbooks

Can a kitchen have too many cooks?

What would we ever do without great chefs…

of one thing I’m certain, I am truly blessed!

  1. Jenna, this is such a fun post. How wonderful that you have a resident chef. With all the wonderful food from your kitchen, I am afraid I would eat way too much. I love your Courtly Check and all of the cute chefs. Have a wonderful and sunny Sunday!

  2. Martha says:

    It looks fantastic Jenna!

  3. Ha, love your little bottle brush pig Jenna! Happy Sunday-enjoy:@)

  4. This is the #1 Best Ever Chicken-Vegetable-Pig-Chef kitchen I’ve ever seen! How fun. You and your son make a great team.

  5. Love this! So whimsical and cheerful, especially Chef MacPig and the other chefs!

    Super cute! But i bet your chef came home and said, ‘ok, mom, now let’s clear the deck so I can cook!’

    Jenna, I love this cute kitchen display! That pig chef is adorable, and all of your MC courtly check pieces look so pretty in your vignette. I hope you have a most beautiful week ahead! Take care!

    A visual display to keep everyone smiling–so fun!

    • Thanks Linda, I didn’t realize I had so many chef things until I started putting this together, I can’t wait to set up another buffet with this theme when I can have guests over!

  9. This is just darling, Jenna! So much cute I don’t know where to look or which I love the most but it might have to do with that chef’s books piece! I think HH Jr. must be a Renaissance man — how wonderful for you and his family too!

  10. Mary says:

    So cute Jenna! I know you love that HHjr plays chef by night and weekends 🙂

  11. Kitty says:

    Yes, you are so blessed to have your resident chef, Jenna. I loved how you honored him with this post. He is blessed to have you as his mom. 🥰

    I like the chefs vignette and the snooty waiter’s table. And I wouldn’t mind a home chef!
    Thanks for adding your posts to the Friday with Friends link party.
