Pancakes and Pajamas Party!

pajamas and pancakes party 2How much fun were sleepovers when you were little? They were always my favorite, and I remember hosting a sleepover birthday party – one of my most memorable birthdays. I adore this PANCAKES & PAJAMAS Birthday Party sent in by Nicolle of Libby Lane Press. She is oh-so-sweet and made the printable paper designs for this cute little girl’s birthday party. 

I just recently saw these cute “eggs ‘n bacon” treats and think they’re so cute to serve at a “pajamas and pancakes” birthday party. They’re pretzel sticks, white chocolate, and yellow M&Ms. How CUTE?! And tasty!

Jackie, birthday girl Alana’s mother, incorporated many DIY ideas into her cleverly decorated party. Instead of constructing a fabric backdrop herself, Jackie used a Pottery Barn ruffled shower curtain to incorporate not only texture, but also the colors she desired. Rather than using plastic chairs for the children’s dining table, Jackie took the toy cubes from her daughters’ playroom, turned them upside down and wah-laa, each child had a ‘stool’ in coordinating party colors that tucked nicely under the table. The children sipped their beverage of choice out of glass milk bottles, which were formerly Starbuck’s Frappuccino bottles.

In front of the dollhouse/headboard was a pillow. The end of the table was made to look like a bed. Such an easy and fabulous way to use what you already have and create a one of a kind look for the Pancakes & Pajamas theme.

The DIY didn’t stop with the ingenious table styling. Jackie created paper chains and poms to hang from the high ceilings and archway in her home. All of which incorporated the colors and various patterns to complement the invitation. Each food item was labeled with a tent card or hanging label {from the Pancakes and Pajamas Collection}. The children rotated through various activities such as: Fruit-Loop Necklaces, Make your own door hanger, Pancakes & Pigtails, Decorate your Prince/Princess and Story Time read aloud by Jackie herself. The chosen book, Curious George Makes Pancakes. Honestly, can this get any cuter? curious george book

The children went home with a goody bag of wonderful treats in honor of Alana’s celebration. Each girl received a doll (with the same hair color as their own) in pajamas and slippers, stickers, Curious George fruit snacks, and their own personal copy of Curious George Makes Pancakes with a custom designed Libby Lane Press bookplate with this message from Alana:

“ SWEET as syrup and NICE as can be…
THANK YOU for CELEBRATING my 4th birthday with me
Love, Alana”
