Create Your Own Paradise Breakfast

 


Now, what would tropical week over here at Beijos be without some yummy food? When I get to go on vacation. Pause. Sorry, I just sat here for what seemed like 10 minutes trying to figure out when the last time I went on vacation. Eeks! Looks like that is in order soon! But when I do, my souvenir is indulging in all the food I can get my hands on. So in the mean time, I whipped up a little tropical breakfast by the pool to crave my indulgences. Plus, it’s keeping summer going since I’m in full denial of fall approaching.

This little setup is perfect for brunch with your besties or just a Saturday morning with the fam. Create your own paradise instead of day dreaming about it, and you can do it in no time!

I’m letting you in an on a little sneak peek here guys! Check out the blanket… this guy will be a part of our collab with Gunn & Swain coming soon! 

When I had this idea to do a tropical breakfast, so many breakfast items came to mind. Do I go with the popular acai or dragon bowl? No, cause I kinda already did that last year with my tropical papaya bowls. Or what about tropical chia seed pudding that I have seen all over Pinterest? No… maybe I will try that another time. I wanted something with pancakes and fruit. I got it! Mini flat cakes it is! This is a take on all the pretty avocado toasts you see but with mini pancakes and tropical fruit. And of course, you always need a big platter of tropical fruit! 

I got a little tropical with my place setting with custom palm frond placemats by Meghann Miniello. Add your tropical playlist to the mix and you are ready to party in paradise but in the comfort of your own home! 

Let’s face it. The tropics can be in style all year long, you don’t need to wait till its warm outside to bring out some paradise. With summer ending, I’m actually wanting more tropical in my house to keep those vibes occurring all year long. Shop my favorites below!

Happy Friday!

Tailgate in Style

Fall…you are such a good time of year.  We’ve just come off our Summer high and get to experience the leaves changing, the air getting cooler, the holiday’s and oh yeah how could we possibly forget…football.  Hello?? Don’t know about you, but our husbands love it and we do to, maybe not as much as they do but we enjoy a good game and some partying surrounding the game if you know what I mean.  I grew up a UCLA fan because my dad is a complete fanatic.  So every fall we geared up for some Bruin football and a super fun tailgate before the games. For the last game of the year, which was usually when they played USC, my parents would buy hundreds of tickets and invite all of their friends, get a caterer, and even music to play!!  Crazy fun right??  We had a blast! Now if you are a Bruin, your not really a fan of USC.  They are both amazing schools and great teams, but you have to pick a side…you can’t like both.  With all this said, we thought it appropriate for some fun tailgate inspiration surrounding the game this weekend!

Beijos Daddy Daughter Picnics

Father’s Day is this Sunday and to celebrate it we wanted to show you some sweet and casual ways our girls celebrated with their first love’s…their Daddy’s!!  I don’t know about your families, but our girls are definite daddy’s girls and it sure shines through in these moments.

I took it out to our front yard.  Edie and Isla love to play out there with their daddy.  They play sports and they actually love to garden together, it’s the coolest thing to watch.  For now Isla just tags along in her stroller watching them in admiration totally content to be outside.

It was very simple, I got my fave blanket and pillow collection from Boho Pillow and laid it out for them to have a little picnic. The hubby made this nifty little wood palate that I just love for special spontaneous dates like this.

 I thought of their favorite thing to eat together and hands down it’s sweets, but more specifically pink donuts with rainbow sprinkles. And…of course Reese’s peanut butter cups!

I had to get these letter donuts!!  They are just so special, find them here at DK Donuts for your next event. Aren’t they the cutest!!  The girls got a kick out of them.
