It’s early Christmas morning, the kids are up at the crack of dawn, and mom and dad insist on coffee and a fire before presents and stockings. Oh and birthday cake. Yep, my birthday is on Christmas and this is usually how our Christmases go.

Christmas brunch ideas to make ahead of time.

In the last few years, my husband and kids have started surprising me with a birthday cake first thing on Christmas even before stockings. Then after presents, my husband makes french toast.

It’s so much food before our big holiday meal I thought this year I would take the work out of breakfast all together by setting up a breakfast station with danish and Swedish treats and juice. We can graze on it through the entire holiday break and save the birthday cake for later. It’s more fun to eat it with my twin sister anyway.

Simply pick up some pre-made pastries or bake your favorites ahead of time and set out next to the coffee maker. Add a bowl of fruit, coffee mugs, juice, cups, plates, and napkins to make a special Christmas breakfast that’s super convenient.

For our Christmas breakfast treats I prepared a blueberry and cream cheese danish bread ahead of time and added raspberry-filled cookies and sparkling juice. The pastries will keep on a covered dish for a few days and the juice and coffee creamer is ready to go straight from the fridge.
