Christmas is probably my favorite day of the whole year. I spend months planning the day doing right down to the last details of the family’s Christmas Morning Breakfast. I spend time looking for new and fun ideas that will make my kid’s hearts skip a beat when they see the breakfast table on Christmas morning.
If going overboard was a love language, it would be mine – and Christmas Morning Breakfast would be my proof. 🙂
So, I spent some time scouring Pinterest to share some of my favorites (from years past), cutest, and yummiest Christmas Morning Breakfast ideas that Kids Love!
Before we get to the Christmas Morning Breakfast ideas – I wanted to share with you some tips to make your breakfast over the top amazing, but without breaking the bank! With some easy tweaks, you can save a lot of money without losing any of the fun!
Christmas Morning Breakfast Tips:
- Variety is key! You want to have a lot of options. So many options – overwhelm with options. That is what makes it so exciting. HOWEVER! And this is really important. A lot of variety does not mean a lot of quantity.
Here is what I mean. You might look down below and see that you want to make the Santa Hats, and the Santa Snowman and some chocolate covered strawberries. Great! Making those three items does not mean that you go and buy three tubs of strawberries! No. Just buy one tub and make a handful of Santa hats, and a handful of Santa Snowmen. With the remainder, strawberries make them chocolate covered.
Just like that, you have three fun Christmas Morning Breakfast ideas with just one tub of strawberries!
2. The bowls and platters you use matter. For food that you toss into a bowl… like cookie bites, use a smaller bowl! You want the foods to appear to overflow their vessels. For platters, keep the appropriately sized! When it comes to Christmas Morning Breakfast (this might sound terrible) but it matters how it looks. It really does.
Let’s use this as an example:
3. Plan ahead. You do not want to be up until 3 in the morning OR getting up at 3 in the morning to create a magical Christmas breakfast – so do what you can in advance. Make the pancake batter the day before – set your griddle out – Clean and cut your strawberries the day before. I short – do anything and everything you can the day before Christmas, so you can just assemble once your kids are in bed – and then quickly pull them out of the refrigerator before they wake up.
