Breakfast in Bed
Here at Coco & Wolf we believe breakfast is underrated and breakfast in bed even more so! The fact it is so seldom enjoyed adds to its charming appeal. What could be better than being snuggled up under sumptuous, luxuriously soft to touch bedding, morning sunshine pouring through the curtains and enjoying a leisurely and delicious breakfast. Heavenly! Whether it is indulged in as part of a special occasion or just a weekend treat we ae encouraging you to revel in breakfast in bed as soon as possible.
Certainly in our house, breakfast day to day is usually quite rushed, so to afford the most important meal of the day a little more time and relaxation instantly feels luxurious. It’s a lovely time to relax, ease into the day, take time to eat well and enjoy your favourite magazine or newspaper. And you don’t have to fall into the trap of feeling breakfast in bed has to involve decadent fare - whatever you enjoy goes. We love homemade granola and natural yoghurt topped with seasonal fruits; it might not be indulgent or take lots of effort to prepare but the very act of eating it in bed with the beautiful surroundings of Liberty fabric bedding and propped up on a cloud of cushions feels lavish. We’ve shared our favourite homemade granola recipe below which you can make ahead and keep it in an airtight jar ready for your future breakfasts in bed!
Your Breakfast in Bed Essentials
Luxury Bedding - Coco & Wolf’s Liberty fabric bedding is made from Liberty’s Tana Lawn cotton or silk, both of which are irresistibly soft and luxurious.
A Beautiful Tray - Keep all of your breakfast in bed treats gathered together beautifully on a tray. It also makes transporting everything from the kitchen easier!
Fresh Flowers - Special occasion or not, a posy of fresh flowers adds instant charm.
Delicious Breakfast & Drink - Your favourite breakfast doesn’t need to be from a recipe book (though it absolutely can be!!) or take heaps of preparation. Pick something which is guaranteed enjoyment.
Buttery-soft Napkins - Are you using a napkin on a Wednesday morning breakfast in between making packed lunches and sweeping up spilled cereal? Didn’t think so. Our Liberty fabric table linen add to the luxury feeling or breakfast in bed.
Magazine or Newspaper - You’ve committed to a leisurely lay in so make sure you’ve got something to read so you can put your phone away.
