EVENT PLANNER AND DESIGNER KATE WHELAN created a spring brunch tableau that proves just how chic a late-morning celebration can be. “Brunch always feels like a bit of an indulgence, so I wanted to capture that elegance but still keep it comfortable enough for a weekend morning,” says Whelan. The china “combines a little bit of glamour with a touch of whimsy,” while the gold accents throughout are a reminder that it’s not too early in the day for a little bling.
