Each blogger in our group will be sharing their own Christmas DIY for you to check out. You can find those links at the bottom of my post.

Christmas Breakfast

On Christmas morning after we open presents our family likes to enjoy a yummy family breakfast together before our extended family comes over. I treasure this time and I know our kids do too. It’s so nice to just sit and be still for awhile and to just be together. This year I plan to surprise them with Trader Joe’s chocolate croissants. If you haven’t tried these before…run don’t walk to pick some up! They are delicious when warm straight from the oven!

A Colorful Christmas Kids Table

Here is what you need:

  1. Fun plates & napkins! The napkins are green cloth ones from Homegoods a few years ago but I found similar ones for you here. The darling little plates I found at Target last year. I saw that they have cute ones again this year and you can see similar ones here and here!
  2. Fun ribbon

    I love my ribbon and when I saw this plaid ribbon at HomeGoods I instantly fell in love. Doesn’t it look cute wrapped around my IKEA vases? Did you know HomeGoods has such a great selection of ribbon and wrapping paper? Remember when I used their wrapping paper to line my dresser? A must for me is if  it has wire in it. It just makes things easier and makes the ribbon easier to arrange. If you can’t find fun ribbon at your HomeGoods I will link a few sources I found for you over on Etsy.

Come see how easy it is to create a fun & colorful table for your kids this Christmas.

3. Fresh greenery & ornaments

A fun and colorful Christmas table for kids.

I am lucky to have a wonderful neighbor who lets me clip her Juniper bushes each Christmas! I clipped off several branches with berries and spread it around the tray, stuck it in the vases and even added it to our chandelier. Other great bushes or trees that make fabulous Christmas clippings are Boxwoods and Evergreen trees. Basically anything green or pretty around December! The ornaments were a last minute add for color! Just make sure they match your plates or ribbon.

4. Special mugs

Why not have a Santa Christmas mug for each member of your family?

I have a special Santa mugs for each person in our family and they add such a special touch to the table or hot cocoa bar. We love drinking my mom’s hot chocolate out of them all December and Christmas morning in no exception! Of course I always have Rae Dunn mugs lying around or on my mug rack. I think special mugs add that personal touch. 

5. A simple centerpiece

Try this simple Advent centerpiece using candles from IKEA.

This centerpiece is actually our Advent wreath. It is a large white circular tray with numbered candles from IKEA and Juniper clippings. Simple yet meaningful. We light a new candle each Sunday leading up to Christmas as we anticipate celebrating the birth of Jesus. If you missed it I shared some neat Advent ideas last week here on the blog that we also have been enjoying.

Time Together

A colorful Christmas kids table.

What I love about this colorful Christmas table for kids is that it says to them that they are important and time with them is important. I look forward to spending time with my kiddos here this Christmas sipping hot chocolate and eating chocolate croissants. I can’t imagine anything better. 

A kitchen nook perfect for a cozy Christmas breakfast with your kids.

Next up on the blog hop is Alicia from Thrifty and Chic Decor, she is sharing her 5 minute wood slice wreath tutorial that you won’t want to miss.

Thanks for stopping by friends. I hope you will come back next week when I share our Christmas home tour!

  1. This is such a beautiful kids table! That ribbon is so pretty! And I love that you have those special mugs for your family! Such a great idea. Now that we’re closer to a Trader Joe’s since moving, I’m going to have to try those croissants you mentioned. I think my favorite is your advent candle centerpiece. It’s such a sweet reminder of what this Christmas season truly is about!
