Christmas Breakfast Inspiration

Do you have some inspiration in mind?

In Sweden, the Swedes start to have their Christmas decos on the first day of Advent, i.e. this year is on December 2, 2012.

Some of you who know me from b4, knows, every first Advent, my family in Sweden gather at D´Box. This is the Swedish tradition that they have for so many years. It is fun to meet family and close friends welcoming the high season of the year. Mulled wine, ginger cookies, Christmas goodies, marzipan, saffron and all those spices the reminds us of holiday? That's gracious aroma.

As I am not really a fully Swede, so I always modify all the goodies that I serve. Both Swedish & Filipino delicacies are well mix in our table. As well as my decor. Swedes are very humble and they love natural and neutral look. It must be light, calm and subtle. While, the Filipino tradition is color, mix, confetti...that's party, holiday for me. So, when you see my participation, it's more on a combo to a que sera sera style, but it always work after all.

So, here is one of the Breakfast Inspiration...
Vilroy & Bosch meet IKEA, Orrefors, Dalani, American Classis, MIO & vintage blings...
Table was set at Saturday night, so I don't get too stress on Sunday morning...
Candle stands are from MIO while the candles are from American Classic Store...
Chandy was adorned with some Christmas gadgets...
Centerpiece is a mulled wine warmer, a vintage under the cloche with tea candles around
Damask table napkins, crystal wine glasses Orrefors & drinking glass IKEA
Snap glasses will use as a scramble eggs mix with bacon & caviar, mini fork Dalani

This flatwares are similar to what the American Table Resto owned by a Swedish famous
cook. President Obamas cook (Marcus Samuelsson). I visited the resto evening b4
Just to make my table a more fun, I gathered 2 of my cookie jars from Singapore.
Inside is a Singaporean handmade cookies "Famous Amos". Does anyone heard about this cookies? It is really a must try. See? very Christmassy too?

My ultimate fave Christmas gadgets from Vilroy & Bosch... a tea/mulled wine cups & warmer... dinner plates & the salad plates are V&B
Look at  Santa, his deer and the Christmas Tree, it's absolutely beautiful
Sorry... I forgot to take some shots this warmers but, I will do another settings, b4 Xmas ends

HOPE YOU HAVE AN ENJOYABLE TIME

FUNFARE inspiration at D´BOX

Too much inspiration playing in my head...


Christmas is an absolutely a hard time for me to decide which motives I have this year. Same old story, year in, year out. Do you have this wonder too? Of course, the real color of Christmas is so pretty and it always reflect to the season.

I know, many of us wants to modify our own style, our own colors, right? "Modification" is our names if you are a blogger, whether you are famous or not? That's the fact.

Well, when I was wandering in town the other day, I happened to see a sale of Christmas blings. I was not really fun of that store. But, I was so curious. When I saw those things on the table with a sign "SALE 50%", I didn't had time to think twice. I grabbed the last set and was even asked by a lady if she can have the 2 goodies jars. Unfortunately, I was indeed, in love with them. So sorry, Lady. All are mine and mine alone *LoL
I sounded so greedy.

ANYWAYS, SALE AND PRETTY...
Aren't they?

White, red and green... looks boy's table this time.
Grand Santa is always present in every Christmas we have at D´Box
Does our boys love Santa? At least I know who love and believe in him *wink
Oh la la... I found some goodies jars square and round ones... perfect for gifts!
I was thinking to have a goodies table and this can be a good idea (at least in Sweden)
ATM, our fave Santa is standing on the mantle waiting to be pampered...
Largest hurricane full of Christmas balls... sorry for the blurry shot! Too bright sun...
Just enough gadgets... not to pampered as this table is more a boyish theme §;-)
Loving it...
Mulled wine or lemonade, for the pitche and bowls can be for almonds and raisins
Santa is absolutely adorable in the train...under a cloche

Round goodies jar... stunning... coffee cups can be use for mulled wine too?
Stand still to guard the ultimate D´Box until dawn.

THANK YOU ALL FOR DROPPING BY...
Hope you all have a nice week-end and a blissful week.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING DAY TO ALL AMERICANS...
WOW! 2 days off? This can be so quiet in our job when USA is on holiday...

Yeah... that's right! I was trying to slow down and put all things in place b4 starting my memes once again. It was awhile joining SSS2 and it was horrible to missed a post but sometimes I have to prioritize.

Anyways, I am not quiet sure in which order I will start. I have so much to share, to tell and to----? OMG! it really is awhile, huh? But, I guess I need to pick up things that are more interesting than the others, right? Or else, it will be a long boring tale to follow.
