Tips and Ideas

How to set the perfect breakfast table

Setting a breakfast table is all about creating a welcoming and organized space. Start with a clean, elegant tablecloth and add placemats for each setting. Place dinner plates at the center, with smaller plates for bread or pastries to the left. Add bowls for cereals or fruits. Position cups and saucers to the right, along with glasses for juice or water. Arrange cutlery neatly, with forks on the left and knives and spoons on the right. Finish with napkins, a centerpiece like a vase of fresh flowers, and small serving bowls for butter, jams, and spreads.
