Beauty for Breakfast

A great way to start off the day with an attitude of beauty is to make breakfast beautiful. Sometimes we're tempted to just rush through a quick breakfast so we can get to the "important" things of the day, but we're missing the point of joy in the journey and making everything beautiful. Besides, breakfast is a very important thing of the day. And beautifying it can be so simple and frugal.

So, here are a few ways I've beautified breakfast lately:
The teacups have been collected from auctions, yard sales and thrift stores. The parfait glasses came from a thrift store. The Greek yogurt is so good and thick; the berries were on sale; the granola is homemade.

The egg cups came from Meijer and the ribbons were on sale at Hobby Lobby.

The sideways pineapples and strawberries were on sale and a wonderful spring treat. The plate was a yard sale find.

My favorite way to beautify the table is with table runners and nature - here  a  dried rose bouquet. The table runner was a freebie at a yard sale; all I had to do was sew four vintage yo yo panels together. An exciting find!

So, go beautify your breakfast!


  1. Creative and inviting! You really are perking up a morning!!

    1. Thank you! It's nice to get the day off to a cheery start.

  2. Love seeing what you did with breakfast! It will be awhile before I beautify breakfast, but I am working on being more intentional about beauty in my home. Thanks for the ideas!
