First Guest Breakfast of Christmas, 2014

While serving lunch or dinner for guests is always fun, hosting breakfast is my fave.

The first guest breakfast during this year's Christmas season was festive and fun.

One of my dearest long-time friends gifted me with these Johnson Brothers "Old Britain Castle" Christmas tree plates which I absolutely love.

So I've been using them for weeks along with bright red glasses!

Fruit is always great to have on hand to serve.

Red glasses were perfect for ice water topped with fresh cranberries and lemons. (Thank you, Pinterest!)

 It was poured from a transparent glass pitcher.  

Also served were eggs, bacon and soft flour-sprinkled "snowflake" rolls but I was too busy preparing (and eating) everything to snap photos. Sorry. 

Why not pull together a Christmas breakfast for friends and/or family members?

Of course, a sweet manger scene in the middle of the table is a necessity!

Your guests will love it and so will you!

When family is here, our most recent favorite is slow-cooker steel cut oats! Granddaughter love poached eggs, and has been known to eat as many as three of them at one sitting! Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day!


I too love poached eggs, my very fave kind. Your table looks gorgeous and I love your red transferware with trees.
Lovely setting for the first meal of the day.
Merry C'mas.

Everything looks very festive. Breakfast is not my favorite meal but I do like blueberry pancakes.

Beautiful dishes on a beautiful table cloth; and breakfast looks delicious. Pancakes are one of my favorites.

This table is perfect! I love the dishes much! Favorite breakfast is sausage casserole or eggs/bacon. Looks like I'm not hosting much this year, but I am enjoying visiting the tables of others!
