Serving Tray

Treat your mom to a little pampering on Mother’s Day by serving her a homemade breakfast in bed.

This isn’t the breakfast of cereal and slightly burnt toast you served her in your childhood days. Discover the details on how to make your mom an updated version of breakfast in bed. She’ll love it just as much as, if not more than, she did when you were little.

Fashion an attractive tray

No breakfast in bed is complete without a nice serving tray made up with all the trimmings.

If you don’t already own a serving tray find a cute inexpensive vintage tray on Etsy or try antique malls or thrift stores.

When it comes to serving your mom a grownup-style breakfast in bed, it’s all about the details. Be sure to include the basics such as a fork, knife and spoon and a cup and saucer. Then add a few extra details to make it special such as a cloth napkin, a glass of ice cold water, a small pitcher filled with cream or milk, a tiny bowl of sugar and a sweet handwritten note from you.

For a final touch, place a small vase filled with fresh cut flowers on the tray.

Dish up a mouthwatering breakfast

For a gourmet take on the most important meal of the day, whip together one (or two if you’re feeling particularly ambitious) of these savory breakfast items for your mother. Try our Organic Scrambled Eggs with Black Truffle Oil and Avocado, Organic Butternut Squash Pancakes and Rustic Steel-Cut Organic Oatmeal.

For lighter fair, make our Super Food Granola Recipe. Serve it with yogurt and fresh fruit.

These recipes are so tasty you might have to sneak a little before serving your mom. For taste test purposes, of course.

Don’t forget the drinks

Finish off the meal with a steaming pot of organic tea or brew a tasty organic coffee blend.

To really make this breakfast in bed for the adults, make our Perfect Bloody Mary recipe or mix up a simple mimosa by filling a glass half full with fresh squeezed orange juice and topping it off with chilled champagne.

Presenting your mom with this adorable breakfast in bed will be the perfect beginning to a fun-filled Mother’s Day. Hope she enjoys.
