Breakfast in Bed for Her
Growing up, my brother and I were obsessed with making my mom breakfast in bed for special occasions and holidays. I am not sure where we came up with this idea but we were always quite determined. We would wake up early, make pancakes and other items and surprise my mom with breakfast in bed. I would love to see what these breakfasts looked like…but she always appreciated the gesture.
If there is someone special in your life for whom you would like to prepare breakfast in bed…we have created a beautiful menu with no cooking required! All it takes is purchasing some pretty items and pre-made food and you will be sure to wow her.
This pretty gold lacquer tray was a great find, it also comes in espresso, silver and white (it can be re-used to display books and other trinkets). This stemless Mom glass and these metallic rimmed pink glasses are nice little touches that Mom will love. The dishes and flatware are also available at www.westelm.com. Mom glass available at www.williamssonoma.com.
The next step is to head to the grocery store…almost all have a deli section with pre-made items like this Quiche Lorraine I found. Pick up freshly squeezed orange juice, croissants, pre-washed berries and pre-washed mixed greens. Get some cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, olive oil and fresh flowers. I found all of these delicious items at my local Fresh Market. Simply mix up a little salad of mixed greens, tomatoes, feta and olive oil…then assemble everything everything else and you are set to impress.
Give the the special woman in your life a little bit of pampering with this beautiful breakfast in bed! It will be appreciated more than you know.
