11 Menu Ideas to Make an Amazing Christmas Breakfast or Brunch!

Looking for simple and delicious recipes to serve for Christmas breakfast? You’ll love these ideas that are fancy enough for brunch too!

When our kids were growing up, we were rarely home for Christmas morning.

Since our families were the ones that moved to North Carolina, we generally traveled back to our childhood homes to see our families over the holidays.

As our kids have grown older, that trip back home has changed.

Turns out, our kids really want to have Christmas morning in their own homes!

Now we visit family at other times during Christmas, and Christmas breakfast has become a special time for us and our kids.

We know things will likely change again as our kids move out.

But for now, we’re enjoying our relaxing Christmas mornings.

And since our kids all like to sleep in, our breakfast often turns into more of a brunch…

AnnMarie created a beautiful table idea, complete with a hot cocoa bar, that’s perfect for Christmas morning.

I’m thinking I need something like this on my table this year!

Today we’re rounding up some delicious recipes for you to serve for your Christmas breakfast or brunch thanks to some of our favorite blogging friends.

Welcome to our Virtual “Dinner” Club!

We joined up with four of our blogging friends to create a virtual dinner club back at the beginning of 2021.

Each month we invite a guest host to join in our fun!

Every month is a new theme.

Sometimes, our theme isn’t actually a dinner… LOL

You’ll find ideas for centerpieces and table decorations, plus a menu with recipes for the theme.

Be sure to check out all of our tablescapes and menus!

This month our theme is Christmas Breakfast or Brunch
