Colonel Mustard in the Kitchen with a Candlestick?

How would Colonel Mustard decorate his kitchen?

One day on Facebook a discussion arose about the game Clue and joking around we began to wonder what kind of lens the characters from this game would create.

Here is my answer to that question. I believe that Colonel Mustard, obviously liking yellow, would have a very sophisticated Kitchen accented in a golden mustard yellow. He would have yellow and black square tiles on the floor, yellow cabinets, yellow appliances and black walls painted in chalkboard paint. Here I have focused, however, on the smaller yellow items one would find in his kitchen.Here are the most interesting yellow kitchen appliances,yellow tableware and yellow utensils that might be found in Colonel Mustard's kitchen.

Yellow Kitchen Measuring Cups

Colonel Mustard would certainly like these lemon yellow measuring cups for baking a yellow cake. Measure, pour and keep with the yellow kitchen theme.

Calypso Basic's lemon yellow measuring cup set includes 1 cup, 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup and are designed to look like a batter bowl.


Yellow Kitchen Whistling Teakettle with Glass Lid - Teakettle for a Yellow Kitchen

Come into Colonel Mustard's Kitchen for Tea. While the cake is baking Colonel Mustard puts on a pot of tea on the kitchen stove. The yellow teapot begins to boil and whistles to tell him that the water is hot enough. The sound of the teakettle boiling in his sunny yellow kitchen brings a smile to his face. I wonder if he would drink Chamomile Tea? It looks yellow to me.

This two and half quart enamel on steel teakettle, non fading finish with harmonic hum teakettle is perfect for any kitchen. This teakettle can be used on an electric or gas stove, not to be used on induction cooktops.


Yellow Cotton Napkins - Kitchen Napkins in a Sunny Yellow

Colonel Mustard invites a friend over for tea and places lovely yellow napkins on the kitchen table. He likes to serve tea in his kitchen breakfast nook. He places a yellow bordered table cloth over the kitchen table, draws out a chair and invites his friend to sit down for a cup of tea. Can't you hear them chatting away as they sip their tea and delicately pat their lips with the yellow napkins?

Product Description

Handcrafted cotton napkins are printed on preshrunk, superior grade, soft cotton and are exquisitely finished with neat double stitched hems.

Each piece is handcrafted using intricately hand carved wooden blocks and is an original work of art distinguished by the work of the artisan, the particular lot of dye, and even varying weather conditions. Tonal variations are inherent to the block printing process and enhance the individuality, character and uniqueness of each creation.


Yellow Salt & Pepper Shaker - Salt and Pepper Shakers for the Yellow Kitchen

With tea, Colonel Mustard serves dainty cucumber sandwiches and he has graciously allowed his guest to sprinkle on just the right amount of salt and pepper from the stylish yellow salt and pepper shakers he placed in the middle of the kitchen table.

Colonial Mustard loves these delightful yellow salt and pepper shakers by The Homer Laughlin China Company. He likes that these Fiesta pieces are Microwave safe, Oven-proof, Dishwasher safe, Freezer proof, Lead-Free, and Made in America. Since this is the only company making Fiesta ware you can be sure that these yellow salt and pepper shakers will go well with any other pieces you all ready have. What a nice addition you your yellow kitchen!


Did Colonel Mustard do it in the Kitchen with the Candlestick?

Golden Yellow Candlesticks

No table would be complete without the candle sticks, and Colonel Mustard's kitchen is no exception.

Yellow Fiestaware - Collect Fiestaware

One of the most wellknown and often collected style of yellow kitchen dishes are known as Fiestaware. When I visited my great aunts on our family farm in Vermont they served tea in Fiestaware. The yellow Fiestaware teacups were always my favorites.

      We use to have a mustard yellow fridge in the 70's (that was much nicer than the avocado one). The walls were mustard yellow as well. I think a touch here and there is nice, but I cannot see the 70's coming back in the kitchen :)

      You are so creative. I just got it that this was based on Clue. I will come if I decide to decorate my kitchen in yellow - which I just might.

      I have been transported to my childhood... memories of gold melamine dishware at meal times. My mother still owns the 1970s version of this mixer. Fun!
