My brunch hosting essentials edit is so good, I’ve bought them all myself

Brunch is my love language, so I'm pretty much an expert when it comes to hosting essentials. I spent hours online shopping for the cutest tablescaping accessories and must-have brunch tools like — wait for it — a Hello Kitty waffle maker, right?! 

I’ve already ordered one for myself. My theory on hosting a good brunch is that more is more, so fill your table with dishes and serveware that make it look like you went to town, even if you just bought some berries and pre-made pastries at the grocery store. 

With a balance of style and substance, this brunch edit will have your friends crowning you the queen of mid-morning dining, even if you're hosting a party in a tiny apartment.
