Fabulous Bloggers + Delicious Waffles…

Blogger Brunch - The TomKat Studio

What does a group of fabulous bloggers and delicious waffles have in common? They both came to my house a couple of weeks ago for a fun breakfast sponsored by Shutterfly! I invited a few of my local blogging friends to come over to meet and greet old friends and new, enjoy a delicious breakfast (provided by Waffle Crush…yum!) and to check out the latest projects I’ve made as a Shutterfly Home Decor ambassador.

Aren’t these invites adorable? Don’t forget to think “out of the box” when searching for the perfect invitation template on Shutterfly. Even though this is a Save the Date design, it worked out perfectly for the black/white neutral style of my event and perfectly featured some of my project photos.

I used my home office as the gallery area to display all of my latest and greatest Shutterfly projects, including canvases, plates, pillows, ornaments, acrylic blocks, water bottles, mouse pads + more goodies!

I am obsessed with spiral notebooks and use them on a daily basis to keep me organized, so I decided to design a few cute ones for my guests! Download my notebook designs.

I also customized notepads for each guest using this adorable, existing Shutterfly design. Who doesn’t love a personalized gift? My only mistake? I forgot to order myself and my staff a set!

I made gold heart totes for each girl (how to here), filled with a few TomKat party goodies and their customized mugs, notebooks + notepads. We also credited their Shutterfly accounts with some items for them to make and I can’t wait to see what they create! So fun!

You can’t host a great party and not feed your guests, so I called in the Waffle Crush truck to make their gourmet liege waffles for the girls! Oh my goodness, they were so delicious. Usually when I’m the hostess, I rarely sit down and eat, but you bet I did this time. Molly ordered me a berry waffle with biscoff, strawberries, raspberries + whipped cream and it was amazing
