éclairs for breakfast: a waffle brunch baby shower

This adorable and colourful baby shower was thrown by Emily of Emilie Kate Style + Design for her sister. With a sweet 'waffle brunch' theme, Emily created all of the details herself. 

Emily chose a colour palette of yellow and white that was carried through so many elements including the table setting, the flowers and the favours. 

For the decor the table was set with beautiful linens, bright ceramics, glass bottle vases with simple yellow flowers and colourful mismatched chairs. My favourite feature were the wooden picnic cutlery in printed kraft paper bags. Each guest was given a home-made yellow duck cookie favour to take home. 

Emily and the mum-to-be's family created a delicious brunch spread including bacon and eggs, fruit parfait and doughnuts. The star feature of the brunch was of course the waffles with a selection of toppings to choose from (home-made jam, nutella, bananas, etc).

A blessing tree was set up where family and friends could leave special notes for the parents-to-be.
