make a tropical breakfast basket...17 Apr 2017

Breakfast-fruit-baskets-blog

I have the hardest time making time to eat breakfast during the weekdays because I'm so busy getting everyone else ready to go, go, go in the mornings! So anything that can be prepped in advance is always a big help. And since I love having a mix of different things, we want to show you how easy it is to put together a mini breakfast basket like this one!

You'll need:

A variety of easy-to-eat fruit and other healthy morning favorites like:
- Grapes
- Papaya
- Dragon Fruit
- Bread
- Yogurt w/ Kumquat slices
- Kiwi
- Banana
- Watermelon
- Mandarin Oranges

Then, simply assemble a variety of items mixing colors, textures, and variety. In some cases, you can prep them the night before so it's ready to go in the morning. And then, simply add any super fresh items like yogurt or sliced fruits right before enjoying.

These also make for a fun breakfast option to prepare for the whole family or for a having guests over. It's healthy, easy, and looks beautiful!

Easter is just a couple weeks away, and today we're bringing you a whimsical brunch table to create for friends and family this year. Here's how to set up a flora and fauna themed table to go with your delicious brunch this year...

-LINDOR Eggs

Here's how:

a flora and fauna easter brunch

1. First lay down the faux green garland in the middle of the table. This will serve as the base for your centerpiece. Add in the faux flower stems along the garland a few inches apart from each other.

2. Place the Easter eggs and LINDOR eggs in clusters of 2 or 3 pieces and place clusters along the length of the garland. The LINDOR Egg Pouches are perfect for decorating needs, as each bag includes a lot of smooth melting chocolates.

3. Then place the Lindt GOLD BUNNY figures along the garland nestled inside. The premium chocolate bunny dressed in gold foil adds a little shimmer to any Easter celebration and is available in a variety of flavors and sizes. Add the smaller bunnies from the Mini 5-pack throughout the centerpiece to have more pops of gold and for size contrast. Then add the faux butterflies behind each large GOLD BUNNY.
