Sunday mornings are often treasured for being time to spend with family and loved ones so it is the perfect opportunity to create a sweet and special Valentines Breakfast at home for your family this year!

Valentines breakfast at home

1. Set the Table

It’s not an ordinary day for an ordinary breakfast so keep those everyday plates in the cupboard and make it extra special with heart shaped party plates, napkins and paper straws. We used super cute Sweetheart Paper Plates (find them here) with co-ordinating napkins and paper straws in shades of red and pink. Not only does fun partyware make the table festive and colourful it creates the ultimate surprise for your little sleepyheads and helps create special memories for them to treasure.

BONUS: Its no secret we love adding a table activity wherever possible and what could be more perfect for a Valentines Breakfast than a themed placemat! We designed this sweet and simple BE MY VALENTINE printable placemat that the kids can have fun colouring while you prepare the pancakes. And best of all our BE MY VALENTINE printable placemat is free for you to download and print at home! Get it here: FREE Be My Valentine printable placemat

2. Serve it Up

There are so many fun options to serve at your Valentines Breakfast! All you need is a good heart-shaped cookie cutter to jazz up even the plainest toast with jam breakfast. We created pancake hearts, crumpet hearts and watermelon hearts using a heart-shaped cookie cutter (find it here) and topped it off with fresh strawberries and pink strawberry flavoured milk.

3. Top with Love

Lastly we sprinkled the table with faux petals, added a few sweet treats, a small jar of flowers and tied a helium filled heart balloon to each chair. Helium filled foils are great because they last so long the kids will have days of fun with them.

Extra Tips:

1. Set the table the night before, after the kids have gone to bed so it ready in the morning.

2. Save leftover paper plates, napkins and straws - there are perfect for craft activities, a sweet lunch surprise, picnic in the garden or the park or maybe a fun teddybear tea party.

3. Print extra FREE BE MY VALENTINE printable placemats and gift to friends or neighbours with crayons to share a little love and joy this Valentines Day.
