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

@ D´Box...

To All SSS participants, I'd missed a lot joining with you guys,
So, I link this to our 3s Marias who entertain us every Sat/Sun.
If you are an Shadow Seeker's you can find wherever, subtle or NOT... So, tell me if you can find some in my breakfast table.

  10. Hi, Chie! I HAVE heard of the Famous Amos brand of cookies, but I didn't know they were made in Singapore! learn something new everyday! I like how you work so hard to appeal to both cultures. That can't be an easy task, especially since the styles tend to be so opposite, and the fact that you put so much work into it is really inspiring. GREAT appetizer forks!!!!! That is such a fun little design! Wonderful job!

    1. Nice to know you know Famous Amos.

      I have lots of them. If you don't mind, send me your address and I will drop to you ASAP:

  16. The Christmas season is very special to families - my family from childhood in early 1960s has every year a special Christmas Eve get together with food and fun - now three generations of Villers and their kids (and their grandkids :) celebrate that same way. Traditions are the decorating in your home!
