Graceland: Dining Room & Kitchen

Graceland has a formal dining room. The color scheme matches the entry way and overall them of the front room of the house. 

 
 

The kitchen is directly off the dining room. The tours of Graceland began in the late 1970's but until Elvis' last family member who was living at the property passed away the kitchen was off limits to the public until the 1990's.

 

The kitchen has the Formica countertops and original carpet. It also has the original light fixtures and cabinets. Everything has been kept in tack. This is the very place that many of Elvis' peanut butter and banana sandwiches were made. This is personally my favorite recipe of the Kings....

It's extremely easy to make and delicious. Elvis loved all kinds of different foods and if you are interested in eating like the King then you can check out many of his other recipes. He has a great Pecan Pie recipe and of course that famous PB & Banana sandwich.

Next up on the Graceland tour... the Jungle Room!

Oh wow! That is amazing. I have always wanted to go to Graceland but never think of it when vacation time rolls around. I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures.

Love these dining room tables! We don't have the room for a formal one though, but if we did, I'd probably pick one of these!

I was so intrigued by that story of the kitchen when I first read it. Can you imagine continuing to live in that house, using the kitchen, while the tourists filed by on the other side of a wall?! What a strange life that must have been!

Happy Elvis Week! We recently visited Graceland, too, so much fun!
