Christmas Breakfast

After getting my kids in bed on Christmas Eve, I wanted to go ahead and have the table set for breakfast to smooth our morning and so we would be ready to eat whenever we were ready!

It was fun to make a few quick changes - first of all the Jell-O tins with moss had to be taken off because the candles burned so fast and they had wax everywhere! Numerous tea lights were burned out too so I was sort of low on candle options.

I kept the table coverings and base the same and just switched out the galvanized tray for a chalkboard. I put our Advent Wreath in the middle and moved the little chalkboard wood slices up on the plaid memo board, slid the felt wreaths around the placecards and that was the extent of all switches. Super simple and quick!

We always have homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast, what is your traditional Christmas breakfast?

That is beautiful Monica..I think I like that setting best of all.

My parents-n-law provide breakfast for each of her adult children & their family with the "Christmas Boxes" they make every year. This year, our choice out of the box was pecan pie muffins with our coffee. We had a huge dinner planned, so we ate lightly.

Those cinnamon rolls sound awesome!

We switched it up this year. We had cinnamon rolls and homemade Orange Julius (which I heard about on your blog).

Would love your cinnamon roll recipe Monica. Love your breakfast table:)

I usually have a egg, potato/or crescent and meat casserole with fruit. The cinnamon rolls sound delicious too!: )

I also prepare it the night before;)

Dear Monica,

Your table is so beautiful. I love how you reuse, repurpose, and make such creative things out of things you already have. I love using nature items as well such as greenery and pinecones.

We also do cinnamon rolls. I always do bacon and sausage because my husband is a huge meat eater. I made orange juice. One year I did a overnight peach French toast and it was amazing. But it is a lot of prep work when you are already doing a lot of prep work for other dishes. I find the cinnamon rolls are the easiest. I do these for Christmas, sleepover guest, birthdays for the kids with a candle, and Back To School.

Have a wonderful day

We always have pumpkin muffins, sausage balls, and fruit for Christmas breakfast. I never waver from that, either! I also like having the table set beforehand, too.

We have carried on Christmas breakfast traditions from my childhood which include an egg/sausage casserole, OJ, Christmas cookies (!), and sometimes even egg nog!!

We have cinnamon rolls (the store bought variety) because we can nibble on them while also unwrapping gifts.
I received a package of the wooden slice tags, and two other types, from Target dollar spot for Christmas.
Looks like you had a lovely Christmas at home this year.

@Lisa M: yum! Orange Julius would've been perfect this year since we had our A/C on! I didn't even think of it - hope you enjoyed! :)
