I fell in love with a centerpiece idea I saw on A Beautiful Mess last week.
It shouldn’t have surprised me to see it there. After all, these are the girls who dreamed up the guest room cart.
Elsie suggested having a tray full of breakfast carbs along with lots of butter and jam options, and setting it out for weekend guests on those mornings when cooking a big breakfast isn’t on the agenda. This idea came at exactly the right moment. I saw it after I had finished eating dinner with AGOMYR at Le Pain Quotidien. We love splitting a baguette (or two, in this case) and slathering it with their jams and chocolate spreads. On this particular visit, I realized a combination of the dark chocolate spread with berry jam on top would be to die for. AGOMYR one-upped me by laying the dark chocolate on first, and topping it with sea salt. If this combination is such a beloved dinner favorite, why wouldn’t it would just as well at breakfast? Who wants to sign up for our guest room next?
