Why do people love breakfast

Ideas and tips for a romantic breakfast

Cuddling up in the pillows at home, freshly in love, ideally not getting up all Sunday and enjoying breakfast for two. Is your love not so fresh anymore? Then get it going again with a romantic breakfast. A little attention, a few kind words and a wonderful surprise with breakfast in bed and the sparks will slowly start to sparkle again.

We'll tell you how to prepare a loving surprise for your partner with a romantic breakfast. There is no need for a special occasion. But for a wedding, annual or birthday it is the perfect start to the day.

What is the best place to make a romantic breakfast?

Our answer is clear: At home! Because what could be more comfortable than sleeping in, cuddling up in bed a little and then having breakfast together. Get up, get dressed, dress up, go out of the house ... the romance is often a thing of the past when you finally sit with countless other people in a breakfast bar with a growling stomach.

The only question that arises: breakfast in bed or at the table?

breakfast in bed

Fragrant coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice and oven-fresh croissants. You hardly need more for breakfast in bed. Great romantics complement it with flowers, especially if there is a wedding or anniversary to celebrate. It's about the gesture and the surprise. Breakfast at home in bed should be a small token of love and not a gourmet menu.

It has to be easy and not involve a lot of effort. Getting out of bed again and again to fetch this and that or crumbs in bed is not exactly conducive to romance. Breakfast is best prepared bite-sized, because nobody likes to cuddle in the middle of the crumbs.

Our recommendations for breakfast in bed:

  • Croissants, Kipferl, donut or muffins and fresh raspberries and a flower.

  • Fruit salad, muesli, porridge, smoothie bowls - everything that can easily be spooned.

  • Fresh toast, already coated with butter and honey or jam.

  • Warm heart waffles with sugar and strawberries.

In any case, you need a large tray that is stable and has fold-out legs for a successful breakfast in bed. If you don't have that, then try to put a small side table by the bed, where you can put down the tray with breakfast.

If you want to prove your love with flowers, then you would rather fall back on a single rose that is simply on the tray or sprinkle a few petals between the plates. A vase on the tray tends to fall over and refresh the cuddling experience in bed wet and cool.
