Christmas breakfast ideas to fuel your day
The most personal and authentic of all Christmas celebrations happen first thing on the 25th. At home. Unwrapping presents. While still in pyjamas.
It’s an intimate and special time shared with the people closest to you, and it deserves a breakfast to match. Nothing formal or choreographed like the lunch or dinner you’ll share with your wider circle later; just a thoughtful spread of delicious dishes served with love, care and a cosy sense of occasion.
Is this the year you take your Christmas mornings to new heights? Wonderful! To help, we asked our team to share their best Christmas breakfast and brunch ideas, which we’ve compiled for you below. After all, ‘tis the season for giving.
Setting the Christmas breakfast table so it’s a joy not a choreChoose one of these low-fuss, quick & easy ways for your family to enjoy even more of the deliciousness that comes from your kitchen this Christmas morning. Then wrap it up in perfectly imperfect tableware from Royal Doulton.
Breakfast buffetIf there’s one meal on the calendar that invites us to pile high our plates, it’s Christmas breakfast. From trays of oven-warm croissants, muffins and breakfast pizzas, to platters of crispy bacon, french toast and pancakes, the buffet is the ideal format for a relaxed but mouth-watering start to Christmas. And Royal Doulton’s platters and trays are the perfect way to elevate buffet-style dishes to reflect the occasion.
A laid-back Christmas breakfast settingThe preparation and planning of Christmas get-togethers can be overwhelming, so embrace the slower, more mindful pace that breakfast offers with a tightly focused combination of foods and refreshments, framed with tableware that lifts the tone beyond the everyday.
Our Signature 1815 tableware collection, for example, can instantly transform a simple spread of croissants, jam, juice and coffee into an inviting contemporary event. The range also demonstrates that you don’t need to use traditional Christmas colours to create nostalgic yuletide memories. In a palette of pinks, corals, greens and blues against a white porcelain base, our Signature 1815 collection is perfect for sharing Christmas moments in a colourway versatile enough for the rest of the year as well.
No matter what you serve on Christmas morning, let your Christmas tableware do the talking with Royal Doulton’s beautifully crafted collections.
