The most important meal of the day deserves the royal treatment.
Here are our top tips for creating an extra special weekend breakfast.


Our Top Five

1. Dress the table

Make a special occasion of your weekend breakfast by dressing up your table with natural elements and linens. Pick a few posies from your garden and layer placemats and table runners for a modern look.

2. Bring out your best chinaware

Why relegate your favourite milk jug or sweetest sugar bowl to the back of the cabinet when they can take centre stage on a Sunday? We love the decorative Chelsea Porcelain Milk Jug and Queen Victoria Sugar Bowl.

3. Include perfect preserves

A luxury jam or honey is equally at home on a muffin, a croissant or even a stack of freshly made pancakes. We recommend the Summertime Strawberry and Champagne preserve and Palace of Holyroodhouse Scottish Heather Honey

4. Serve something sweet

Try this recipe for Drop Scones:  a type of small pancake eaten all over the world, similar to American breakfast pancakes.

5. Put the phone away

Start the day screen free, using the time to relax, chat and catch up on the morning papers. You’ll end up feeling even more rested and ready to start a new week.
