Now having this Breakfast Casserole for your family on Christmas Morning would be awesome…how about making two and giving one to a friend or neighbor for their Christmas Morning Breakfast?

I covered the Casserole with plastic wrap and added this beautiful Vintage linen, ribbon, a couple pieces of fresh holly and a card with the instructions for baking on the back.

Isn’t that linen beautiful? I was so excited when I received a box of the most beautiful presents from Shannon. They were all wrapped in pink tissue and tied with the same ribbon I used on the Casserole. Now, of course, I’m not giving away my linen that Shannon sent me, I just wanted to give you an idea of what you could use. Shannon’s Shanonigins, is full of beautiful table settings, decorating ideas, gifts, crafts and more…take a peek!
