I believe that spreading a little more kindness starts with our family at home. But for some of us, we also have a secondary home and family at work – the home away from home crew – the folks we probably spend more time with during the weekdays than our own flesh and blood.
Well, how about spreading that little extra kindness (and a little bit of love) to the crew tomorrow morning by surprising them with a little breakfast nosh for Valentine’s Day. With some basic ingredients for food and presentation (yes, it sure does make all the difference) – you can simply set the stage for a sweet way to kick-off their day!
This humble little spread can make a difference – one that I guarantee will speak volumes. It’s about keeping it simple, but making it look special.
Start with setting the foundation with an ironed linen towel or small tablecloth. Buy a dozen or two of bagels, cut them in half (but not all the way through), and place them in a napkin lined basket. Scoop out the cream cheese from the plastic tub into a ceramic or glass bowl. Do the same for the butter (sticks of butter on a plate). Cut up some fruit – apples, oranges, melon, strawberries, and grapes for example – and gently toss together in a bowl. Don’t forget to add serving utensils – big spoon for fruit, and butter knives for spreads. Paper napkins and small plates, plastic forks and small cups will work perfectly.
Co-workers + fresh food + a little TLC table setting = a real nice way to start the day.
