Make a memory with a one-of-a-kind serving tray

2014-2-26 9:42:44

On a chilly morn, how about going out of your way to give yourself a one-of-a-kind, happy breakfast at home. More specifically, a tray for a breakfast in bed.

Junior gardeners have been creating these items for years for Crawford County Fair flower shows. I also have had requests from 4-H members who wanted to borrow components to create such a tray for a lunch. Trays have been shown in flower shows, and used for a patio breakfast or lunch.

The charm comes from working with color and texture.

Start with a tray. If you have no tray, use a rectangular picture frame. I have used a square game board.

A place mat can transform an ordinary cookie tray into a bright spot. Other components may include a fabric napkin, napkin ring, china and small container for a floral unit.

People use everyday melamine, Corelle, fine china, even plastic and paper goods. The pieces are determined by your breakfast menu. Cradle your cereal bowl on a salad plate. A cup and saucer could match. If you are having juice, use a small glass. When you set up the tray, include flatware or silver place settings.

A solid place mat may be accented with a print napkin. You do not need to buy one. Go to the fabric heap and find a stripe, plaid or print to cheer things up. Cut a 12- by-12-inch square of fabric and fold it creativity, or pull it through the napkin ring.

The last touch is floral. In the photograph with this column, there is an egg cup, filled with fresh lavender and lemon gem marigolds. You will not have these in winter. But you can kick some snow from your boxwoods or lavender plants, cutting stems of one or the other. Cut different lengths. Rosehips from rose plants, or small pieces of yarrow can add contrast to fresh materials. Placing cranberries or blueberries on toothpicks will introduce color. A touch of artificial fruit on wired stems would do the trick.

All that remains is a fresh-brewed pot of coffee, juice and your cereal or breakfast sandwich.

Make a memory for yourself.
