This Halloween breakfast in bed idea could be done Halloween morning, but it could be done any time in the month of October! With our printable download created by the talented Leah at January + May, putting together your own breakfast in bed is super easy!
Start by surprising your family members with a unique breakfast menu. Family members will “Pick Their Poison” from a printable Halloween-themed breakfast in bed menu. Our menu fits perfectly into a printable door hanger that can be left on their door in the morning to find. To make this spectacular meal all come together, be sure to grab a great quality paper cutter and nice cardstock.
For each of the four breakfast categories (drinks, side, main dish and special treat), your family member will choose between the two options listed beneath them. The trick? The menu items have secret Halloween code names. Will they choose to drink Goblin Drool or Slug Slush? Would they prefer Monster Munch or Graveyard Grub? Have them circle the item of choice and then wait in anticipation – not knowing exactly what they ordered!
What you serve for each of the coded menu items is completely up to you! You can use our printable cheat sheet to organize what you would provide for each of the menu items listed. Remember to keep it simple and use what you have on hand. Here are some ideas:
- Goblin’s Drool – milk or hot cocoa with whip cream topping
- Slug Slush – some form of juice (apple juice, grape juice, cranberry juice)
- Skeleton Bones – bacon or sausage
- Swamp Mush – eggs, hashbrowns, muffin or fruit
- Monster Munch – cereal, granola, toast or oatmeal
- Graveyard Grub – pancakes, waffles, crepes, omelet, or french toast
- Spider Eggs – powdered sugar doughnut holes, pastry or cinnamon roll
- Decomposed Delight – yogurt parfait or smoothie
Now is the fun part! Prepare the chosen meal and present it to the lucky family member! They are guaranteed to be surprised!
As usual, we have unique printables to add extra flair to the meal presentation including these clever treat toppers!
Or these fun drink wraps and straw flags!
We even have some blank food tents so you can let your family know what each item they ordered was!
And there you have it! A unique Halloween Breakfast in Bed idea to surprise your whole family! This could even be a great tradition for many Halloweens to come!
