4 Pretty Ways to Serve Breakfast
You’ll have plenty to look forward to in the morning, aside from eggs and toast
They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But given the morning rush, it is sometimes neglected, if not forgotten entirely. If you have a bit more time in the morning, or if you want to treat yourself to a hearty breakfast on a weekend, get ideas on how to serve the first meal of the day in style. Here are some tips:
1. Serve it the artsy way.
Fancy a sophisticated, artisan look? Gather plates, mugs, bowls, and cutlery in shades of brown. Mix them with subtle shades of beige and white. Serve food on a wooden tray and you'll feel like you're having breakfast in a museum café.
2. Go colorful.
Do you need that morning jolt? Bright colors make for a good wake-up call. Activate your senses with doses of yellows and oranges. Don’t forget to tone these bold hues down with white and other neutrals to keep your breakfast tray from looking kiddie.
3. Get inspired by chocolate.
This breakfast tray done in a brown-and-white palette makes you think of a mug of hot and comforting tablea. Pair your dinnerware with a woven tray to add warmth and texture.
4. Go the modern route.
A mix of stainless steel, silverware, and wood makes for a sleek combination. The architecture-inspired plates put this setup two notches higher than a simple setting of white plates on a tray.
