A tradition that has always been there in my family is breakfast in bed. It has always been a large part of celebrating every birthday, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. We have always enjoyed it and my Mom was always found at the heart of it, making it happen.
We are all grown up now and we have families of our own, but many of us have continued the tradition in our own homes.
With Mother’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to share a few breakfast in bed ideas.
There are so many simple touches that look elegant but they are easy and they will make your Mom, wife, or friend feel spoiled.
The first secret to breakfast in bed pampering is the bed tray . As you can see, it is possible to make a cute tray from a crate, cookie sheet, piece of wood, or you can to buy one.
* hint to make it special: use a new tray that they can keep.
Then add a few flowers. Place them in a small vase, mason jar, or wrap
them in some paper or twine.
*hint to make it special: buy their favorite flowers in their favorite colors.
Choose a lovely napkin. White, linen, or floral always work well.
You may also want to include something for them to read like a book, a magazine, their ipad, or the newspaper.
*hint to make it special: Add a handwritten note, a poem you have written for them, or a picture you have made for them.
After you cover the details. Decide what you want to serve with their favorite beverage.
*hint to make it special: serve their favorite drink in a creative container.
If you are feeling adventurous, goat cheese & mascarpone vanilla bean pancakes with strawberry rhubarb syrup from
Adventures in Cooking sounds fancy and uses a few more ingredients but if you can make pancakes, I believe you can make these too.
If you would like to make a super easy but classy pancake, this raspberry vanilla bean dutch baby with blueberry sauce from Kailley’s Kitchen might be your play. It bakes in the oven so you don’t even have to flip them on a skillet.
Eggs are always a good choice and these recipes, coddled eggs from Popsugar, and
garden vegetable baked eggs from Handmade Charlotte are super easy but they still look fancy in their own personal serving dishes.
Roasted pear and brie galette from Kitchen Tested looks amazing if you are willing to take it on
but if you want REALLY simple, you could always make your Mom some fruit parfaits.
Like the ones in this picture from Eat Drink Garden.
They are lovely but they don’t need any cooking. They simply require layering fruit, granola, and yogurt which anyone can handle.
You can find a recipe here.
