Whether you like eating in bed or you are completely against it, it is difficult to argue that breakfast in bed can be a really nice gesture and incredibly romantic. Luckily, breakfast in bed isn’t difficult to prepare, but you need to do a few things before you start planning this treat for your partner. Sure, you probably already have matching plates and utensils, but what about the other items you need to make the surprise work? That is what we are going to look at in this article.
Wooden Serving Tray
A gorgeous wooden serving tray is ideal for breakfasts in bed. Having a couple of trays in the kitchen means always having the ability to prepare and serve breakfast in bed. They also make for great kitchen accessories and can be used for other meals, making them great investments.
Finding wooden serving trays for sale isn’t difficult. Virginia Boys Kitchens, for example, has beautiful serving trays made of walnut that you can pick up at affordable prices. Ideally, you want one that is large enough for a big breakfast, but not too big that it is difficult to handle.
Flowers and Little Surprises
Adding flowers to a breakfast tray is always a nice touch. However, it is not always easy to get flowers the night before and keep them fresh for the morning. Worry not, because there is a secret to making this work.
You can put the flowers in water, and they will stay fresh overnight. You can also put them in warm water for 15 minutes, and then switch to cold water in order to make the flowers bloom faster (just in time for the romantic breakfast).
My absolute favorite trick is adding a few drops of vodka and a teaspoon of sugar to the water to keep your flowers looking fresh for longer. Another way to do things is storing fresh flowers in the freezer and only taking them out when you are about to serve breakfast in bed.
A Simple Menu
Choosing the right breakfast menu for breakfast in bed is also important. You want to stick with dishes that aren’t too complicated to prepare and are not difficult to eat. I always try to find breakfast dishes that can be consumed with one hand, but don’t let that stop you from going all the way with menus like delicious frittatas.
No breakfast in bed is complete without sweet treats for your loved one. It is a surprise after all, and sweet treats make any surprise better. Pick up a box of chocolates, buy some muffins the night before, or use candies to your advantage. Your partner will appreciate the sweet treats very much. That’s the best reward of them all, isn’t it?
Breakfast in bed works best as a surprise. Now that you have these things prepared for yours, turning a simple breakfast into a memorable – and highly enjoyable – moment is not difficult. Go for it and show appreciation by preparing breakfast in bed for your partner.
