How to do Spring Breakfast in Bed with The White Company

*This is a collaborative post

With the mornings gradually getting lighter and brighter, spring appears to be giving us the heads up that it's well on its way and whilst I'm ready to wave off the winter blues, I still don't have any plans to part from my duvet any earlier come the weekend mornings. Instead of staying cosied up underneath I'll be swapping my hot water bottle for my breakfast in bed tray to start my upcoming Sunday's off on the right foot and with the addition of a few new pieces from the The White Company's spring collection, here's how I'll be serving things up...

On the Menu. Stick to simple - something you can prep the night before or make up in minutes that morning, or else it's going to be time for lunch before you get your breakfast in bed. My Sunday morning menu features only avocado toast, but to occasionally change things up a little I throw in some coriander, tomatoes, red onion, lime and chilli - I deem it guacamole toast. Other not-too-messy choices could be granola and yoghurt, overnight chia pudding, porridge or waffles and since it's all about having options, dishes of chia jams, fruits, breads, yoghurts and hot or cold beverages make for the perfect selection. 

Serving Suggestion. To save you from smoothie spillages, this sturdy but chic Breakfast in Bed Tray is the answer - with fold-away legs it's easy to store, a wipe-clean lacquered finish means no mess and it's roomy enough for plenty of food - plus, it doubles-up as a lap tray for tv dinners, what's not to love?!

Plating Up. Think serve-ware with wide bases and high sides for catching crumbs, silverware and a napkin. Made from Portuguese clay, the Artisan Serving Bowls naturally have a non-slip base and are perfect for serving your main breakie dish whilst the Artisan Serving Platters are good for separate sides. Drink-wise, if chilled and refreshing is what you're going for, smoothies and juices are best served in the chunky but elegant Elgin Highball Tumbler - (the amount of times I've knocked and dropped these and still not a breakage...).

Cosying Down. For the full breakkie-in-bed experience, it's all about the cushy bedding and comfy loungewear. To prop me up, the Super-soft Ultra Wash Large Square Pillow (a good choice for if a smoothie spillage is to happen) is like one big marshmallow when wedged behind your back and with the Avignon Cushion Covers, are both practical and pretty. The ultimate throw-on for me is the Cotton Colourblock Boxy Jumper - is it bad that I like to lounge about in this? It's SO soft and I basically spend all Sunday, every Sunday in it even if that's paired with my favourite jeans. In terms of actual sleepwear, the Tie Detail Pyjama Set is buttery soft against the skin and secures with a bow both top and bottoms. It's also long-sleeved if there's still a bit of a wintery chill but thin enough if the morning brings some spring sunshine - I double them up as loungewear since you can still pull them off as non-PJ's past 11am.
