Babe Brunch // Styled Shoot
What better way to celebrate on a hot summer’s day, than with your best babes, brunch, and mimosas!
I wanted the brunch styling to be light and airy, with a feminine colour palette. This was achieved with pops of pinks and peaches in the florals and accents of turquoise found in the dinnerware.
A small glass jar filled with Lamb Soapwork’s bath salts was placed on each setting as a small favour to the guests. Beside each striped plate (sourced from Anthropologie), was a hand deckled place card, with each babe’s name handlettered with pink watercolour.
Floral arrangements from Hen & Chicks adorned both the dining table and the buffet spread, making this brunch extra feminine, floral, and all around stunning!
Acrylic signage featuring celebratory phrases handlettered by Bexley Design Co brought it all together.
For the food (the best part!)… Adorable mini donuts from Pretty Sweet Co and colourful macarons from Ollia made the brunch spread drool-worthy. And trust me when I say, they both tasted even better than they looked!
But the main event was the homemade crepe cake! It was as delicious as it was beautiful, with over 20 layers of crepes and strawberry-infused whip cream, topped with a mountain of fresh berries.
And of course we couldn’t forget to pop some bottles!
The invites were so much fun to design! I hand-lettered a couple elements with a watercolour-style brush on my iPad, and went with a light pink tone to evoke femininity and playfulness! The invites feature cutesy phrases like “Put on your Favourite Summer Dress”, “Babe Brunch”, and each babe’s name was handlettered in the same style on the outer envelope. I even hand-deckled all the edges of the invitations myself to give it that textured “handmade paper” look.
Marielle Louize captured the event perfectly, depicting all the love, laughter, and joy that took place on that fabulous day.
While this brunch was in celebration of a birthday, the event was styled in such a way that it could be used as inspiration for engagement parties, bridal and baby showers, bachelorette parties, and more!
Here are a couple images made just for Pinterest!
