Thanksgiving Breakfast for Two with Buttermilk French Toast

While everyone is preparing for the dinner feast, waiting for the hors d'oeuvres and the beautiful turkey feast their hosts are preparing, let’s not forget the Thanksgiving breakfast. Begin your day with a grateful heart and a happy palate.

This Spode Woodland dinnerware is one of my favorite sets. We paired it here with champagne flutes (used for cider or juice in our house) by Ralph Lauren and drinking glasses with a tortoise pattern we picked up at a consignment shop. The napkins are by Potterton Hill.

When we find something we like, we may not know exactly how it will be used until we start bringing everything together. One of the best parts of "treasure hunting" is the surprise and joy when we find the perfect place for a tea cup, lantern, loose antler, or charger.

Cozy wool blankets cover the back of the chairs and the table beckons its guests.

The flower arrangement is a jar within a vase. Between the jar of water where the flowers are arranged, the empty space is filled with tiny paper pumpkins for a nice pop of color.

A nice table setting can work for morning, evening, or both. We used this one for breakfast, but close the curtains, light a candle, and enjoy the ambiance for an evening meal.

Thanksgiving breakfast is really like any other, though perhaps with a bit more flair. Because we tend to eat the holiday meal closer to our usual dinner time, breakfast is a must. Buttermilk French toast topped with chopped pecans and fresh berries, served with a side of apple-smoked bacon and hot cocoa with a sprinkle of nutmeg. If you're not into meat, an extra side of fruit is both delicious and refreshing.

The French toast is as delicious as it looks. We suggest serving it with a little pure maple syrup. Worried about all that sugar? Skip either the confectioner's sugar or the syrup and use only one. Both ways are appetizing.

What are your favorite foods at Thanksgiving? Do you enjoy a big breakfast or skip right to dinner? What other holiday traditions to you hold dear?
