The Perfect Summer Breakfast Buffet

Disclosure: This shop and post have been sponsored by Cost Plus World Market to celebrate their Summer Fun Sweepstakes.

Summer time, to me, not only means fun vacations away from home, it also means visitors from far away. The guest room is prepared as is the guest bath.  But, what about feeding your guests?

Oh sure, you could have bowls, milk and cereal on hand but, why not treat your guests to something special.  I mean, they did travel by car, bus, train or plane to see you, right? 
How about a waffle and crepe breakfast buffet served al fresco?

You could set your table on top of a fun outdoor rug out by the garden first thing in the morning.

For our guests, while I set the table, Mr. B made up a batch of waffles and crepes.

These mixes from World Market could not be any easier to use! 
In just a few minutes you can have gourmet breakfast food to serve.
Breakfast Buffet Inspiration
Speaking of gourmet, I added cute little jars filled with fun fruit spreads such as Mango, Orange Marmalade with Champagne, Lemon Curd, and Black Cherry. And, of course, we had to have the maple syrup in the Maple Leaf bottle!

How cute is that turtle holding the butter?

And how fun and colorful are the plates?

The red tablecloth over a yellow thrift store cloth really adds some color and pop!
Of course, there has to be drinks!  You could go the boring plain OJ route or,
how about some Blood Orange or Orange, Mango Passion Fruit soda, plain or, mixed with champagne for a new take on a mimosa? And, if you need a kickstart to get your morning going, nothing beats a Bloody Mary amIright?
