Whether you’re wanting to spoil your significant other, a family member, or just treat yourself, a great breakfast in bed is the ultimate act of care. But how you can you make it more special? We have a couple tricks up our sleeve to share that can make your spread neater, more beautiful, and all local! Pick up all these ingredients at your local farmers’ market.
How To Style Your Tray
We recommend adding a linen as a base to your breakfast in bed spread. This will help anchor all your items as well as help with any spills. Don’t have a tray? Use a clean cutting board, cookie sheet, or even a large casserole dish. Grab a cute bowl, basket or jar to add napkins and cutlery.
Light a candle & add some flowers
Nothing says romance and comfort like a lit candle! Grab a beeswax candle from the market to add some ambiance. You may have grabbed a whole market bouquet with the best of intentions before realizing it’s never going to fit on your tray! Grab a few of the prettiest flowers and add them to a small jar. It will add all the beauty without the fuss!
Cocktails & coffee
Why not go all out and add a little bubbly? For an all local twist, we’ve come up with 2 recipes for our version of a mimosa. Get the recipe here! Pop the bottle bed-side for some extra fun and drama. Grab the freshest coffee beans from the market to make this the most aromatic cup of joe!
We all have our favourite breakfast grub. You could grab your bacon and eggs from the market, or fresh fruit to create a compote and spoon over a pile of pancakes or waffles. For a no-fuss crowd pleaser, try our French Toast Casserole (Sweet or Savoury). The best part about this recipe is you can prepare it the night before, throw it in the fridge, and pull it out bake it in the morning!
