Thoughts on Breakfast in Bed and a Giveaway

Tuesday, April 12, 2016 by

Well that was a longer blogging break than I thought it would be, but I’m happy to be back!  I’ve missed you, and hope that life has been good.  So let’s get back on the blogging track by talking about two of the best things in life… breakfast in bed and getting free stuff.

Breakfast in Bed for Mother's Day Essentials

Because I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and somehow that seems to be the big Breakfast in Bed day of the year.  It’s lovely to have a few bedside essentials ready for your lazy (?)morning.  And then anything that gets added by little hands and carried up to you just makes it perfect, don’t you agree?

A few bedside essentials then…

1.  A tray.  Something that tucks under or behind your bed and out of the way when not in use is perfect.  I made this one, upcycled from a cabinet door.  The DIY for that is coming up next week!

2.  Coffee.  Enough said.  Unless you’re a morning tea drinker.  Then tea, also enough said.

3.  Flowers.  Anything from a single bloom clipped from the garden to a little bouquet from the grocery store.  Flowers easily elevate anything to special-occasion status.

4. Reading material.  The morning paper, your latest novel, a favourite magazine, Pinterest.  A little uninterrupted reading time makes a great start to any day.

5.  A candle.  Something so soothing and relaxing about having a candle burning nearby.  Something pretty, with just a slight scent.  I have candles set up in almost every room of the house, and always one beside my bed. But speaking of pretty candles, isn’t this one gorgeous?  Campy Home are hand-poured soy candles made by the talented Emily of Cheerfully Made.  You can find them online at her Etsy Shop here.  (And while you’re checking it out you might notice that some of the product photography is done by yours truly.) 

If your screen was scratch ‘n sniff you’d all be running out to buy a few of these right now.  Seriously they’re that scrumptious.

But wait… because one of you is about to have this candle at your bedside, when you win it for free!  Enter to win below and you might have this candle sitting on your Breakfast in Bed tray this Mother’s Day.  Or you might want to wrap it up and give it away to that special mom in your life.  Gift perfection.   Keep reading or skip down to the end to enter.

6.  Breakfast.  Well obviously.  And for this one I say anything goes.  If anyone loves me enough to bring me food in bed, I’m not gonna complain about it.

Personally I’d be all for the Downton Abbey way of life where a tray gets brought up every morning, wouldn’t you?
