This Mother’s Day, Kitchen Warehouse is proudly supporting ‘Brekkies only a mother could love’ via The Brand Agency
The Mother’s Day breakfast in bed is a rite of passage for most Aussie kids. The ‘perfect’ way for them to show their love for Mum. But unlike the picture-perfect representations shown in most advertising, the reality is quite different – a messy, burnt, inedible array of gluggy pancakes, gloopy porridge, spilt juice, and whacky flavour combinations.
The new Mother’s Day campaign from Kitchen Warehouse and The Brand Agency is giving a knowing nod to this Mother’s Day tradition. Acknowledging that even though it’s not always up to café standards, breakfast in bed is a moment to be celebrated.
The campaign showcases a range of brekkies, each featuring a Kitchen Warehouse product designed to handle even the most robust childlike efforts. Surrounding each product is all the mess, colour and unusual ingredient choices that are often found when a child takes charge.
Simon Lamplough, Chief Customer Officer, Kitchen Warehouse, said: “There’s a big difference between the romanticised Mother’s Day breakfast in bed experience and the reality: batter on walls, crumbs in the bed and mum smiling politely as she chews. Highlighting that disparity felt like a fun space to play. At launch, we are profiling a range of hard-to-swallow creations before coming to the aid of all budding brekkie makers with recipes, tools and gift ideas as they prepare for the big day.”
Dean Hunt, Executive Creative Director, The Brand Agency, said: “Avoiding the cliché of picture-perfect Mother’s Day imagery was the goal. We wanted something that reflected the reality of the brekkie in bed experience for most mums – a delightful but sometimes messy wonder of love. Big thanks to all involved.”
The launch campaign rolls out nationwide across various outdoor, radio and digital audio, social platforms, digital advertising and in-store POS.

Now that is a comprehensive list of credits. Nice.
Why not have a long credits list when an agency is kicking goals on a brand? Hats off to a client and agency who are building a solid body of work together.
High degree of difficulty getting a client to agree to shooting their products looking messy and imperfect. Kudos.
Hard task making bad food look good. Hats off to all involved.
I think the food styling and Art Direction misses the mark.
It’s too neat, so you really need to focus in on each image to see any sort of mess. Needed to be much more obvious.
