Treat Yourself to Breakfast in Bed

This morning I decided to have breakfast in bed.  Whether you are fixing for one or for a couple it’s a fun decadent treat.  I quickly created a cranberry pineapple pecan relish to spread on a cinnamon raisin bagel, brewed a cup of cranberry breakfast tea and set up a little table in the morning sun by the bed.  Ahh, what a way to start the morning!

Yesterday I bought a bag of fresh cranberries and oranges at the market to make myself a retreat breakfast.  If you’ve never done something really special for yourself, this is a great starter.  There are plenty of recipes on Pinterest.  Mine is super simple using about a cup of finely chopped cranberries, a small can of crushed pineapple, about a quarter cup of chopped pecans and some orange zest all stirred together.   Spread some cream cheese on a bagel and add a dollop of cream cheese and some of the relish. Devine.

I started setting up by making a small table centerpiece using a clear container almost filled with some of the fresh cranberries and simply added some artificial red and teal berry sprigs.  The colors make a nice holiday theme that is neutral enough to keep out through January or February.  I like that.  By adding or changing a minimum of character pieces I go from Thanksgiving to Christmas and New Years with no decorating stress at all.  This mornings breakfast isn’t too holiday themed, just a lovely winter escape.

A teal charger, white hobnail plate and a decoratively printed salad plate and cup carry the color scheme.  A plain white cloth napkin with a DIY sprig of the same centerpiece artificial berry sprigs coiled into a napkin ring give the breakfast table elegance.

I leaned back on a bed of pillows and soaked in some morning sunshine while I sipped tea and nibbled on my bagel.  I might just stay here all day long.
