I love traditions and one of the best ones is how we celebrate the birthday and nameday mornings. This is all thanks to my awesome friend Suvi, who's family has done this probably forever. And as I was introduced to this tradition, I knew straight away it was one of those traditions I wanted to keep in my family. It is a tradition that your whole family will really love!
So by now you should be asking me to tell you what it is. Well in simplicity it's having breakfast in bed. So simple and so sweet. It really can only be a great day when it starts so well. But to make it more interesting and fun you really need this following twist to make it awesome! When you prepare the bread/sandwiches for your birthday boy/girl or nameday boy/girl (still sleeping in the bed) make them of things that you normally wouldn't do. Example: put mustard on the bread, then maybe apple and then cheese. Or some salsa dip, then maybe some meat and mozzarella and tomato slices. Make them as decorative as you can. You'll be surprised how good they actually taste! The next key point is to share the breakfast with whole family. Make enough slices (and all different of course) so that everyone can have a taste of each bread.
Now, I didn't realize to take a picture of the breads I made for my hubby for his nameday (so bummed) so I'll have to do it next time. Instead I'm gonna show you the little present he got.
Hope you're all having a great day!
