Breakfast in bed always sounds nice, especially when it is prepared by a loved one. It is also a great gesture for showing appreciation to your partner. More importantly, breakfast in bed is easy to prepare because, well, breakfast is the easiest meal to prepare.
There are a few things you can do to make breakfast in bed incredibly romantic. Choosing the right breakfast to serve, serving it in a particular way, and adding personal touches to the mix are among the things you can do to spice things up, and we have just the tips for you in this article.
What You Need
Before you can prepare a romantic breakfast as a surprise for your partner, you need to prepare a few things first. A beautiful serving tray adds a nice touch to the whole surprise, so take the time to browse through this walnut serving tray collection and get yours.
Adding matching plates and cups – and some silverware, of course – is also a good idea. They help set the mood and make the presentation of your breakfast more appealing. Think about how your partner will consume the breakfast too so you don’t end up with a lot of mess.
Lastly, add a personal touch to the tray. A gorgeous flower prepared the night before or a handwritten note will complete the set and turn a simple breakfast into a romantic one. You can put flowers in the freezer to keep them fresh and ready for the romantic occasion.
Choosing the kind of breakfast to serve is easy. As mentioned before, breakfast is usually the simplest meal of the day, so you don’t have to cook complex dishes or spend hours preparing the breakfast for this romantic gesture to work. However, there are a few things you want to anticipate.
First, you want to make sure that the breakfast is easy to consume. Think about the food items your partner has been trying to avoid (i.e. gluten) and try not to include them in the breakfast. Make sure the meal is easy to eat too, especially in bed.
Calculate the time needed to prepare the breakfast and make sure you can wake up in time. This is usually the challenging part – you want to wake up earlier than your partner, but you cannot use your alarm because it will just wake your partner up at the same time.
Take Your Time
You have everything prepared and you are ready to surprise your partner; what next? Well, the only thing left to do is present the breakfast. Let your partner take his or her time and enjoy the breakfast fully. Have fun conversations or share a breakfast tray together.
Taking your time is important. This is the kind of surprise you want to share and cherish together. Preparing breakfast in bed and then rushing out to a meeting is not a good idea; you want to at least spend a few minutes showing how much you appreciate your partner.
At the end of the day, that is what breakfast in bed represents. It is a way to show how much you appreciate your partner. Now that you know how to prepare one without going through the extra trouble, you can surprise your partner.
