Imagine Christmas morning in your house...family gathered around the tree opening presents and revelling in the merriment and joy of being together. When the last gift is opened and maybe some of the wrappings cleaned up, what happens next?
Well, in our home, that's when we gather round the table for a special breakfast.
A festively set table is so important for any meal on Christmas Day and that includes breakfast.
This year, I'm planning more of a Country Christmas look for our morning meal that day.
A red and white buffalo check tablecloth was the inspiration for this table design.
The centerpiece was created with these three red pots (local florists' shop) set on top of birch rounds.
Faux greens and red berries with pine cones were arranged in each pot.
Two of these wooden lanterns (Pharmasave) were set at each end of the table.
Faux candles that light up easily by remote control were accented with more faux greenery.
Bronze toned reindeer flank the centerpiece and stand in front of the place settings.
These bowls from Pier 1 are the perfect Christmas red for the table. I made the surrounding wreaths using grapevine wreaths from Michael's and hot-gluing faux boxwood from the Dollar Store onto them.
Snowflake mugs are perfect for some steaming hot coffee.
Each place setting gets a celebratory candle.
When planning your meals for Christmas Day, don't forget to plan the décor for your...
By doing so, you'll continue the feeling of excitement and celebration as you transition from gathering round the Christmas tree to sitting down to a special holiday breakfast.
Our traditional Christmas breakfast starts with fruit salad followed by Eggs Benedict with hash browns and pork sausages. Beverages include coffee and Bailey's Irish Cream along with a special orange juice punch.
I'll be sharing some close ups of the decor on the sideboard behind the table in an upcoming post. Hope you'll check back.
