Holiday Brunch + Co-Working Afternoon


Join us on November 22nd to gather around the table for a three-course holiday brunch in good company, plus an inspiring conversation with the Co-Founders of Stellar Eats, followed by an afternoon of guided co-working (optional add-on). Together, we move from building relationships online to offline, sharing not just a delicious meal but also our stories and successes from 2023 and aspirations for the year ahead. This unique experience has been curated to inspire, empower, and connect creative women over a beautiful brunch, with the intention of forging genuine connections with community IRL.

You’ve been working hard all year to grow your business and achieve your dreams. Maybe you've taken the leap and left your corporate job, which you don't miss, but you get a little nostalgic when hearing about all of the fun holiday work parties, like that once a year holiday lunch where things are just taken care of for you, where you get to sit back, indulge, and celebrate all of your hard work. Maybe you're still at that corporate job, but you're exploring passion projects on evenings and weekends. Maybe you already have an office party, but being surrounded by like-minded people sounds way more fun.

In this unhurried setting, reflection and celebration takes centre stage. You'll find yourself alongside entrepreneurs, creators, and community builders who share your journey and can support you in celebrating your wins and kindling inspiration, naturally paving the way for further personal and professional growth.

Hosted by Palak (@embiria) in partnership with Chefs Spencer Newlands and Tosh Agassiz of The Fare Food Company (@thefarefoodco), this experience promises reflection and community-building, all while savouring the pleasures of celebratory holiday brunch.

Sometimes, all we need is a reason to celebrate life's joys and enjoy the simplicity of a beautiful meal together. Let this be your invitation.

Come on your own, or bring a friend. Either way, you'll be welcomed and make new ones.
