We’ve all heard the saying “If you want breakfast in bed, sleep in the kitchen.” Well, thanks to Savoir Flair, that’s no longer necessary. Scroll down and discover the five steps to creating the perfect breakfast-in-bed scenario, finishing touches and music recommendations included.

1

Decide on Your Menu

Omelets, oatmeal, pancakes, French toast, fruit? Be sure to plan your menu in advance, gathering all the fresh ingredients necessary. And if you’re cooking for someone else, don’t forget to consider their favorite foods.

Keep the Glass Half Full 

Don’t make the mistake of pouring full glasses of coffee or tea. Be sure to fill cups only three-quarters of the way and serve beverages in beautiful glassware.
