Who doesn’t like to be surprised with breakfast in bed, right? That’s why this is a great way to innovate in the celebration of a birthday or a romantic date.
Like the idea? Then come follow this post with us and find out how to make breakfast in bed super special.
Breakfast in bed: how to organize and prepare
Make a note in the calendar
First tip: find out if the day of breakfast in bed will be smooth and without major commitments on the agenda of the person who will receive the surprise.
Imagine if the person has a meeting and needs to leave the house very early? Bye, bye, breakfast.
Make a list
A special breakfast begins with the organization and preparation of all items. So get a pen and paper to write down everything you will need to provide, including decoration.
A good starting point for this is based on what the person likes most, so you already know what to offer them for breakfast. Are they sweet? Are they salty? Hot or cold drinks? Write everything down.
Make or buy ready?
Everything will depend on your availability. If you can prepare everything at home, great. If not, fine too.
Stop by the supermarket and guarantee everything you will need. Do this a day in advance to ensure fresh food and drinks.
If you live near a bakery, leave to buy bread and cakes on the day of the surprise coffee. The fresher the products, the better.
This third tip is also essential. When assembling the breakfast tray, remember to keep as much silence as possible so as not to wake the person.
Avoid using noisy appliances and, preferably, keep as many items organized the night before.
How to decorate the breakfast tray
The tray is the most important item for breakfast in bed, after all, that’s where everything happens, so you know, right? You will need one.
But do not worry. Nowadays it is very easy and cheap to find these trays, either on the internet or in physical stores. Prices are also quite varied. It is possible to find trays for breakfast for values starting at R $ 20.
Plates, cups and bowls are also important for organizing everything that will be served for breakfast.
So take that beautiful crockery out of the cupboard and place it on top of the tray.
The flowers bring a touch of charm and delicacy to the breakfast tray.
You don’t need a super elaborate arrangement, here the idea is just the opposite. Use only one flower in a lonely vase. That way, it decorates the tray without taking up space.
The disposition of food is essential to ensure a beautiful decoration for the breakfast tray.
To do this, start by removing the food from the packaging and organizing it in bowls or plates.
Cold cuts, such as cheeses and sliced hams, for example, can be served rolled up.
The fruits need to be chopped to make it easier to eat and to avoid dirtying the bed.
Drinks should be placed directly in the glass or cup, but be careful not to overfill the container and end up dropping it halfway.
The final touch of the breakfast tray on the bed is due to the treats that are placed on it. It could be a note with a special phrase, it could be a photo or an envelope with a gift, like tickets to a cinema later or an invitation to a romantic dinner.
What to serve for breakfast in bed
Here are some suggestions of what to serve for breakfast in bed, remembering that each person has a different taste and you should prioritize the drinks and foods that they like best.
Sweet, salty, baguette, French, Italian, multigrain, toast, croissant … options abound when it comes to bread.
A legitimate breakfast in bed cannot leave this traditional item out. Choose two or three varieties to serve.
Along with the bread comes the side dishes. It can be jam, butter, curd, dulce de leche, honey or whatever the person likes most.
To make it look beautiful, just remember to remove the product from the original packaging and place it in a small crockery container.
There are people who do not dispense with a fluffy cupcake for breakfast. And if the person you are going to gift is also a fan of this item, then leave a preparation the day before or buy one made.
It could be carrot, chocolate, corn, anthill, who knows!
Pancakes and waffles
How about an American-style breakfast in bed? For this, provide pancakes and waffles with fruit, honey and chocolate icing. Irresistible.
Eggs are a great salty option for breakfast. Simple to prepare, inexpensive and versatile, eggs guarantee a special touch for coffee.
You can make scrambled, fried, boiled eggs, omelet or any other recipe you know how to prepare.
Granola or breakfast cereals made from corn are also perfect for breakfast in bed. To serve, use a bowl and offer some accompaniment, such as honey or yogurt.
Banana, apple, grape, pear, watermelon, melon, strawberry and papaya are great fruit options for coffee. Serve them already washed and cut. If you prefer, make a fruit salad, mixing three or four different types of fruit.
Some fruits oxidize easily, as is the case with apples and pears. To prevent them from turning brown, drop a few drops of lemon.
You can also reinforce the breakfast tray served with a well-stuffed snack.
A hot joint, for example, is a good option. But you can still opt for a natural snack or even a tapioca, filling it with the ingredients of your choice.
Strawberry yogurts, red fruits or with natural flavor are welcome to accompany fruits and cereals, but also to be taken alone. See what the person prefers and offer on the tray.
Juices and vitamins
Juices and vitamins are perfect for a light and healthy breakfast. If the person is on a diet, offer a green juice, for example.
The daily coffee is also a must. Serve directly in the cup or in a mini thermos.
To accompany coffee or chocolate you can choose to serve milk. In addition to the cow’s milk option, consider also offering a vegetable milk option, such as almonds or oats.
Is the morning cold? So a tea goes well! Make a warm tea and place it on the tray to warm the heart of the recipient.
