Fruit-Decoupaged Glass Plates
This year, breakfast in bed comes with a colorful surprise — these custom decorated plates.

This idea comes from our friend Kathleen Ballos. Decorate clear glass plates with simple paper shapes of Mom's favorite fruits — we chose sunny citrus motifs, but wouldn't cherries, strawberries, or even bananas be fun?
Clear glass plates
Draw simple lemon shapes onto yellow tissue paper and cut out. Do the same for oranges, grapefruits, and leaves.
Put the plate upside-down on your work surface and apply a layer of mod podge (we used the dishwasher-safe variety) onto the edge of the plate. Place the tissue paper shapes onto this area, and then apply another layer of mod podge on top to seal it in place. Repeat until you are happy with the design on the plate and then let dry completely.
