How do I prepare the perfect breakfast in bed?
The first thing to do is to put extra care into getting the atmosphere right, which must be pleasant and relaxing.
Preparing breakfast in bed usually means making someone a surprise, so for the best results, we’d recommend waking up a little bit earlier so that you can cook and get everything ready, including the arrangement on the tray, without having to stressfully rush through things.

Breakfast in bed…the menu

Breakfast in bed: a few tips
A few tips on how to make your breakfast in bed perfect:
- Choose background music with a slow rhythm and a soothing melody
- Place the breakfast dishes on a tray that is easy to carry, so that you don’t have to make more than one trip
- Or, if you’ve prepared foods that can easily crumble up, choose a tray that is large and tall enough, to avoid the crumbs from falling onto the bed.
And now…enjoy your breakfast!
