Decorating with Breakfast Trays
Almost any time you see a magazine spread of an elegantly appointed bedroom, you will notice a breakfast tray
featured prominently on the bed, dressed up and ready for someone to lie down, get comfortable, and treat themselves to a feast. Nothing seems to evoke pampering and luxury like breakfast in bed, and the tray
is a big part of that. There’s something about it that just makes us feel decadent and special.
You can add a little luxury and romance to your décor by setting up a “scene” using a breakfast tray
. Pick a tray
that you love, taking care that it blends in well with your existing décor and has the features you are looking for: removable tray
, reading stand, compartment for magazines or books, etc. They are available in many different configurations and finishes and work with almost any look. Next, you have to “dress” it – accessorize it, that is. You can set it up with a pretty placemat and cloth napkin with a holder for a simple presentation, or you can get creative and use a bud vase and a fresh or faux flower or even a stack of books.
Don’t limit yourself to just the bedroom. Breakfast trays
can add dimension to the décor of the living room or family room as well. They can be set on a coffee table and used to display a collection of candles or to serve as a home for the TV remotes (in a tasteful basket or bin).
