Christmas Breakfast Table and Menu


In my last post, I shared our table and menu for Christmas Eve dinner. The next morning, Phil's parents are joining us for a late Christmas breakfast! Obviously, I want to spend Allie's first Christmas morning playing by the tree in my PJs, not cooking, so we are doing an almost entirely night-before menu (this seems to be a popular idea for Christmas morning!) Everything is simple but festive and hopefully yummy!
Christmas Breakfast
(for the strata, I'm planning to add leeks and use French bread)
Maple-Mustard Glazed Sausage Links
Apricot Kringle and Almond Kringle (shipped from O&H Bakery and fabulous)
Coffee, Hot Cocoa, Hot Tea

I went for a bright and simple look for the table.

Some lanterns, clementines, and greenery serve as the centerpiece. I used Ikea dishcloths as napkins and a little bottle brush tree to decorate each plate.

I found these sugar stirrers at Trader Joe's and I thought they were really fun.

I made simple favor cones for each chair. The cones are just made from kraft paper. Inside each cone is a tissue paper crown, a joke, and some candy.

The littlest guest!

I'm guessing this plate will last approximately 45 seconds before it's on the floor. At least it's plastic.

I will have the hot drinks set up with our hot cocoa bar. I think it's nice for everything to be out so people can help themselves.

I MAY squeeze in one last post tomorrow, but otherwise I'm off to have some fun with my favorite people :) Merry Christmas!!
