Happy February Friends! I can’t believe we are already in the second month of the year! And apparently, according to the groundhog, it doesn’t seem like Spring will be here any time soon! I always wonder who ever came up with the idea of groundhog’s day? But, I digress . . .
I recently partnered with The White Company (A UK based brand) on a social media collaboration to share some of their products, so I decided to share some of the styling I did for the posts and hopefully you can find some inspiration for a romantic Valentine’s Day breakfast in bed . . .
or a Valentine’s day buffet for the family!
I started with these pieces:
- A heart shaped oak board which can be used as a charcuterie board or as a tray for breakfast in bed.
- Some pretty Heart embossed plates
- Dainty scalloped edge bowls
- Egg cups, which I’m super excited about (I don’t think I’ll ever want to eat an egg any other way!)
I kept the breakfast pretty simple, heart shaped waffles, sausages, fresh fruit, soft boiled eggs and toast “soldiers”—-yum!
Heart Shaped Bacon
I have to admit, I am usually on the tail end of trends, as I am with the airfryer. We bought this one for my daughter for Christmas (she begged for it) and I use it literally every day!
To air fry bacon in general, it’s pretty simple and it turns out SOOOOOO good. I just pop them in in a single layer at 350 degrees F and cook for 7-9 minutes, checking them regularly. You can keep them in longer and flip them if you want them to be extra crispy.
Making heart shaped bacon is another story, lol. After much trial and error, I decided that taking a piece of bacon and folding it in half lengthwise, and then shaping it into a heart, with the top of the hearts pressed up against the edge of the air fryer basket worked best.
And then I made the cutest heart shaped waffles with this waffle maker. And of course I had to make heart shaped strawberries too!
To make heart shaped strawberries all you have to do is, remove the stems from the strawberries by slicing a “V” shaped notch into the tops of the strawberries.
And to add a little life and color, I used a cute bud vase and placed some tulips inside.
I know roses are like the official Valentine’s day flower—I’m a much bigger fan of tulips–plus they remind me of spring!
I hope this post has inspired you to create a fun, love filled Valentine’s Day breakfast!
