Serving Breakfast in Bed

There are few things in life more luxurious than having breakfast in bed. Here's some tips for making a leisurely breakfast for your someone special, right in your own home.

  1. Buy a sturdy bed tray that won't tip over easily. Make sure it is large enough to hold several dishes and other items. Set the tray with your better china, silverware, glassware, and pamper your special someone with a linen napkin.
  2. Shop for breakfast ingredients that they'll enjoy ahead of time. Try to keep it simple, but special. It could be as easy as purchasing muffins, bagels or Danish and freshly cut-up fruit.
  3. Purchase fresh flowers, it adds a nice touch.
  4. Cancel all morning appointments. Turn off the phone. Make this a morning when you both can relax.
  5. The night before, place fresh sheets on the bed.
  6. Have a plan for preparing the breakfast tray in the morning so you don't keep your special someone waiting.
  7. Prepare some of the ingredients the night before. If possible, set your coffeemaker for your wake-up time, so the scent of freshly brewed coffee will awake you instead of an alarm.
  8. Don't forget to put the final touches on the tray, like doilies, fresh flowers, newspaper or magazines, freshly squeezed juice, maybe even a special note or card.
  9. Before placing the tray, re-arrange the pillows in their bed. Use several large ones to give their back support. They'll want to be comfortable as they eat.
  10. Allow them to savor their breakfast, sip on their coffee slowly, catch up on their reading. They'll appreciate your thoughtfulness and who knows, maybe next time you'll get breakfast in bed.
