Breakfast In Bed: The Basics
Breakfast in bed is a wonderful luxury, and doing it right makes it that much better. There are certain items that are absolutely essential to a successful breakfast in bed. They aren’t usually expensive and can help elevate your morning meal into a decadent treat.
A Thermal Carafe
Hot coffee is a breakfast imperative. A pretty thermal carafe will not only look good, it will save you from having to run back and forth to the kitchen for refills. Look for one with a good capacity so you can linger in bed awhile.
Salt and Pepper Shakers
A set of tiny salt and pepper shakers will also ensure that you won’t have to hop up out of bed to season your eggs.
You can’t have waffles or pancakes without syrup and a dispenser is so much nicer than the plastic containers many syrups come in.
Paper napkins simply don’t say “luxury.” Breakfast in bed is a special occasion and it demands something a cut above the ordinary. You only have to keep a few around.
A Bud Vase
Nothing beats a flower for that extra-special touch. A simple bud vase is inexpensive and will hold a single flower—all you need to make a lasting impression.
A Breakfast Bed Tray
Without the tray
, the whole breakfast in bed scenario falls apart. How will you get breakfast into the bedroom? Look for a tray
with space to tuck the morning paper or other items.
