Never Work Before Breakfast..........!

 If you have to work before breakfast, eat your breakfast first. 

- Josh Billings



The Breakfast Table

Breakfast is said to be the most important meal of the day and on board a Superyacht, it usually consists of a buffet and plated service. That said, as a Superyacht stewardess, it is equally as important to take as much care with the breakfast table setting just as you do with setting a formal table.

Remember to decorate the buffet and breakfast table in bright fresh colours.

Breakfast Table Setting

What you will need:


As breakfast is a little less formal and many people have their 'morning routine' usually with less talking (as to wake up at their own pace).
The table will have more condiments on it for ease of accessibility.

  • Jams
  • Honey
  • Lemon slices
  • Salt and pepper
  • Butter

Table linen:

  • Table cloth, place mats & table runner of choice
  • Coloured napkins of your choice


  • Dinner plate on the table
  • Cereal bowl on the buffet
  • Salad plates on the buffet


  • Knife and fork
  • Dessert spoon
  • Butter spreader
  • Tea spoon
  • Extra cereal spoons for the buffet
  • Service tongs for the buffet


  • Water tumbler
  • Juice glass
  • Extra water glasses on the buffet with water or juice
  • Tea and coffee are normally served. If, however, your guests prefer American black coffee, then place the coffee cup and saucer on the table

Centrepiece/ Decoration:

  • Decorate your table with a light and fresh theme
  • Simple floral decorations or sea shells are often a good choice
  • Co-ordinate the colours with the table linen
  • Do not over crowd the table.
