French Breakfast in Bed... Perfect for Sunday Mornings!

Good morning!  Today I'm having breakfast in bed.  A French breakfast to be exact!

I think having breakfast in bed from time to time helps your house feel like a hotel... and you feel like a Queen! It makes your life go from ordinary to extraordinary, don't you think? Bring some fresh flowers in to make it feel even more enchanting! Make your bed! Put on your nice spa robe, Ugg slippers, and enjoy!

On the menu this morning
Freshly baked pain au chocolat
Espresso

Just like a real French breakfast! If I were a real Parisian, a cigarette too! (ha, don't smoke, but the French certainly do!)

I bought this little espresso cup in the Napa Valley.  It is by Pullivuyt, a French porcelain company. I love it!! You can get a set of four here or one here.  Put a little coffee bean on the side of your espresso, stir in the sugar with a silver demitasse spoon!

Want to know a secret about this pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant)?? It is fresh out of the oven!  But... it's from Trader Joe's! YES! In the frozen section of TJ's there is the pain au chocolat in a set of four.  It is super easy to make - just pull how out many you want to bake the night before - let it thaw and rise overnight, and then in the morning just pop them in the oven for 15 minutes or so! 
Voila! Instant, freshly baked, chocolate croissants! 

If you're feeling extra brave, you could always make your own plain croissants. Here, I'll help you out: two of my favorite French food bloggers versions of croissants recipe 1 and recipe 2.

But I'm lazy in the morning, so I'll stick with the TJs one! TJs also sells mini plain croissants in a set of 8, if the chocolate ones aren't your thing!

  2. This is my kind of morning! Thanks for the TJ tip. I'm going to stop by tomorrow and pick some up. We need to keep these in our freezer! Your tray looks so pretty and inviting ~ black and white checks, Juliska Country Estate, roses, and pain au chocolat!
    PS ~ a local store had select pieces of their Juliska on 50% off. I added four cereal bowls to my Blue Country Estate, two more comfort mugs in Country Estate Ruby, and the dessert plates in Country Estate Ruby. Feeling lucky! I may need to set a breakfast tray! ;-)

  10. I love your breakfast in bed. I often do that too, lol. It is such a special treat. I must look into the Trader Joe's croissants. They look delicious. I love your pretty expresso cup too.

    Have a great week.
