It’s A Pancake Party

Today is the Fashionista’s birthday!

A few weeks ago I asked her if she wanted to do anything special.

She sent me this image.

A pancake party! Yes!!!! It seems fitting as she was born at 5:56 in the morning.

Pink and orange looks like the perfect palette for pancakes.

Pancake breakfast party! #party

Wouldn’t you get up early for this?

You could also get a gold pen and write the persons name on the orange leaf.

Adorable place setting, Inspiration for Mobella Events, Wedding Planner Orlando, Wedding Planner St. Petersburg, FL,

Love the vintage syrup containers and happy canisters.

I absolutely adore this happy paper and embroidery hoop mobile. You can view the full instructions HERE.

A topping bar would be so much fun!

cute pj's and pancakes party

How cute are these party favors? Wee mason jars filled with pancake mix and topped with a mini whisk.

For those who have a dark side in the mornings…

blueberry tarts and succulent centerpieces

Everyone needs a donut kabob.

mini pancakes + toppings and breakfast kebabs with strawberries, blackberries and doughnut holes

Favorite flavors of syrup in cute containers.


Isn’t this vintage ad from Aunt Jemima fantastic? They used different flavored milk to create the batter. :)

Fruit Loops and flowers~ happy time. But the bacon and eggs (aka pretzels, frosting and 1 yellow M & M) just cracks me up. (Pun intended.)

Preppy Pancakes & Pajamas Party

Donut buffet? Yes, please!

A fun recipe for cake batter pancakes.

Flags and banners look even cuter on a stack of hotcakes.

2012 new years party brunch

HERE is a cute free pancake themed printable set.

Coffee, tea or me?

As you read this I’ll be making citrus flavored pancakes (yellow) rose flavored pancakes (pink) and blueberry pancakes (blue of course) topped with one lovely candle for her to make a wish.

Love this idea! Pancake Cake (Breakfast Party from Potter) --could do a keto version for Abby b-day...

Mine already came true. Happy Birthday my darling girl!


Fun fact:

I gave birth to the Fashionista as a 20 year old girl, alone (aside from 2 nurses and a Dr.) with no epidural. The whole beautifully exhausting experience left me so hungry I ate two huge breakfasts of French toast, bacon and eggs while she slept peacefully by my side.

Happy Birthday to your Eden! The idea of a pancake party is inspired. You posted so many wonderful ideas here and the pictures are lovely. I love the photo of you and Eden. I was 20 when I gave birth to my Angela and your photo brought back some sweet memories. She will turn 42 this year.

Thanks for sharing this lovely post!

Oh Happy Birthday to the Fashionista. She is such a gorgeous girl and a pancake breakfast sounds like such fun. You are definitely the clever one. Hugs, Marty

Lorraine said...

Happy birthday to your girl! Yes, times have certainly changed...there's almost not enough room for the doctors and nurses in the room anymore! We were alone back then. I never thought of a pancake birthday! Obviously TONS of other people have! Great pics and ideas!

Love ya'

Debbie said...

Well, first HAPPY BIRTHDAY to your Fashionista!

Second... I love this idea and really really wish I had seen it before my daughter's birthday. She would be all over this. I got SO MANY wonderful ideas from this one post that my head is sort of racing. I must. Repeat, must... throw a breakfast party. I love this!!

Oh my gosh... what fabulous pictures. So much WORK! I love the pink and orange combination.... I had a plaid dress those colors as a young teen and I still love them ALL these MANY years since. :-)

Happy birthday to your Fashionista...What precious gifts daughters are!

By nature, I'm not a breakfast girl but your photos and descriptions could easily make me a convert! Happy Birthday to your daughter and I'm sure it will be grand with you at the helm of the celebration. Have a lovely week, Laura.

I wish the happiest of birthdays to your beautiful Fashionista! Don't forget the pitcher of mimosas. :)
Your Friend,

Happy birthday to your daughter and you. Darling photo of you and her.

I had a C-section and my photo doesn't look so good with all the meds. LOL

Happy Birthday to the Fashionista!!! I thought you would do the sprinkles pancakes...that covers all the colors at once! You know that I am not a pancake eater? I just have never really cared for them. Once a year maybe I will have a donuts...that is a whole other story!!

Vel Criste said...

Happy birthday to your darling daughter Laura! Truly a breakfast celebration is such a fun and refreshing alternative! Love all the inspiration here!

Mary Palumbo Collings said...

Happy Birthday to your daughter! Love all the images, what fun ideas...

Mari said...

Hoping your sweetie has a fabulous birthday, and omg what yummy pic's now I'm hungry for some pancakes ;)


Louise said...

Love the name Eden! So her name isn't really Fashionista then???;)

Even then, you had a pretty bow in your hair, ALWAYS one for the details I see.

Those donut and fruit kabobs are SUCH an easy and clever idea.

I am not much of an (American) pancake person, although all these photos could make me change my mind. To me a pancake is large, very thin and nearly always just drizzled with lemon juice and sugar. No syrup in sight. I think you call those crepes here, and they are not that popular it seems, at lease not as popular as your American pancakes.

The Boston Lady said...

This is a clever idea Laura, and delicious sounding too. I love the picture of you and the Fashionista. You are tough as nails, girl. Happy birthday to your 24 year old baby. Ann

Bonne Anniversaire My Dear! Sending you warm wishes from Paris and hoping both of you will join me here on day!

Karen Albert said...

You are always so creative and clever; ideas galore here.
