Caroline’s House of Pancakes… The Pajama Party Rewind!


March 24, 2015

I think this was my favorite party to date my dears… filled with lots of love, homemade touches, a funfetti layered cake, and my sweet three year old who was surrounded with love with so many friends and family who came to celebrate her special day! Here’s a little recap with links to sources included at the bottom!
Party assembly came into full swing late last week and this crazy mama was running around gluing and taping and getting everything ready for a perfect pancake pj day…

Trader Joe’s always comes to my rescue… gorgeous and bright colored stems for a springtime soiree

Our fun little beverage station… complete with pink coffee cups, sleeves,
and lids and all the coffee, tea, and hot cocoa you could imagine!

Favors this go around included Krispy Kreme sprinkled donut with custom tags that read “DONUT I’d Do Without a Friend Like You”…
My birthday girl and I in our yummies… yes, this was SO much fun and we were comfy, too! 
 Adult beverages are a must… fun cocktails for the older kids πŸ˜‰
 All sorts of yummy treats were on the menu… yogurt and granola parfaits and chocolate chip pancake muffins for the win!
 And don’t forget about the Fruit Loop Treats.. I ate my weight in those goodies! 
 My proud little baking confection… all by myself πŸ™‚ 
The topping station… complete with maple syrup, Hershey’s chocolate syrup, bananas, strawberries, almonds, whipped cream, sprinkles and blueberries, too
 Cupcakes for our guests with fun toppers
 Yeah… Sister wasn’t wanting to pose, but at least we tried! 
 Blowing out her big 3 firecracker candle!!!
 My favorite… little milk bottles for the kids (and adults, too) 
 More food and tablescape fun!
 You know I love any excuse to use my favorite chalkboard
So, there you have it… another birthday party down in the books! Thanks for reading along and sharing in all the goodness that was Caroline’s big day. And no worries, I’ve already started plotting Carson’s 2nd birthday πŸ˜‰

  24. Meredith says:

    I know I asked you once before, but I can't remember the answer. What brand of chalk pens do you use and do they wash off easily? Do you know if you can use them on chalkboard paint/wall? thanks lady

  25. You nailed it, every detail was perfect! I loved your theme! Xo, Stephanie

  26. lala says:

    Cute idea! But, shouldn't the tags have had "know what" in the text? As in "DONUT KNOW WHAT I'd do without a friend like you"? Seems to make more sense that way?
