Breakfast in bed must be up there as one of the best ways to start your day. No jumping out of bed at the first sound of an alarm clock, no dashing to work with only a slice of cold toast for sustenance – quite simply, you have nowhere to be.
Now the days are colder and shorter, it’s even more tempting to stay beneath the covers, so follow our top tips for the perfect breakfast under the duvet.
What You’ll Need
The key to a great breakfast in bed for yourself or a loved one is organisation. That doesn’t sound particularly relaxing or indulgent, but a few key items will make all the difference. You’ll need a tray large enough to hold everything, cutlery to eat with and napkins to catch the crumbs. Flowers are optional but add a nice touch.
Where You’ll Be
Of course, you can enjoy breakfast in bed in the comfort of your own home, but why not make the most of it and whisk yourself off to a luxurious hotel or stylish boutique apartment such as no. 8 Waterloo Street apartments, which will afford you all the privacy of home? The beauty of venues like these Birmingham serviced apartments is that they are like a home from home, complete with fully equipped kitchen and sumptuous surroundings, but you won’t have to do the clearing up.
What You’ll Eat
Thankfully, the nation’s best-loved chefs all have their own take on the perfect way to indulge in this favourite leisurely pastime, continually creating an array of mouth-watering recipes. From Angela Nilsen’s healthier take on the full English to James Martin’s Spiced Bloody Marys, there’s no shortage of delicious ideas. Why not try your hand at one of the recipes, or even better get someone else to try them for you?
You don’t need to be a culinary master either. Dip delicious pancetta-wrapped avocado into your soft boiled egg, or add nutritious matcha powder and maple syrup to some natural yoghurt. Top with kiwi, peach, blueberries and coconut flakes – delicious yet simple.
So now that we’ve provided you with all the ingredients for a fabulously lazy breakfast in bed, there’s no excuse. Choose your venue, stock your fridge and hit the snooze button as you snuggle down under the duvet for some you time.
