I LOVE Christmas Morning! Each Christmas, our little family has a special breakfast with just us 6 after opening presents. After the kids go to bed on Christmas Eve and after Santa leaves the presents, I set the table for breakfast. I bring out our Christmas plates, glasses and mugs! My kids LOVE eating on our “Christmas Tree” plates. This year I saw some adorable felt reindeer napkin rings at a local craft store and thought…hey I could make these!…and so I did.
So this year we will add these cute little guys to our festive Christmas morning breakfast table decor.
To make these felt reindeer napkin rings, you will need:
-light brown felt
-dark brown felt
-awsome fabric cutting scissors
-green or red felt for the ring part
-small google eyes
-mini red pom pom balls
-hot glue gun with glue sticks
First you will cut out the reindeer parts. I just cut one out and then used it as my pattern. The antlers were a bit tricky, but remember it doesn’t have to be perfect. The green ring part was about 1 1/2 inch wide and 4 inches long and hot glued into a ring. Then I hot glued the antlers on the back of the reindeer head and glued the head to the ring. I then added google eyes and a red rudolph pom pom ball nose.
Now that your table is cute and ready to go…on to the breakfast. I don’t want to spend Christmas morning cooking in the kitchen, so I love dishes that I can make ahead of time or something I can throw together quickly and pop in the oven right before we open presents.
Here is what is on our menu this year:
-A breakfast casserole (I’m on the hunt for a new one this year) any suggestions? I like being able to put the ingredients together the night before and then pop in the oven first thing.
-Hot Cocoa (I use our Hot cocoa maker-a must have!) with fresh whipped cream
-Fresh fruit/apples, oranges and grapes
-& some cinnamon pull-apart bread (one of our favorites). It is so easy to throw together, makes your house smell yummy and is DELICIOUS!
