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!
Night Before Cheese and Mushroom Strata
(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!!
