I love breakfast in bed…actually lunch and dinner too. Bon Appétit recently ran an article about it, so of course I was interested. While I’d be the first to focus on the food, like they did, they missed badly by not going much further.
Like a good restaurant, ambiance is important. Taking notes from my Bed Camp strategy, an uncluttered room is important as are lots of pillows to lean against. A soothing playlist also helps set a relaxing atmosphere.
A good bed tray, big enough to hold the plates, sturdy enough not to tip over and big enough to stand over your legs is an absolute must. I even have a set of plates just for the bedroom. Don’t forget to bring in a carafe of coffee with cream and sugar, to avoid having to get up for refills.
Most important, leave yourself lots of time, to relax and recline after you’ve enjoyed your morning treat. Let the peace and contentment linger as long as you can.
