Kate's Pancakes & Pajamas Party

Kate's 6th (!!!!) Birthday Party was on Saturday.
She (we) picked the theme over 6 months ago to incorporate 2 of her favorite things...Pancakes & Pajamas!
She wanted the colors to be Purple & Green (her 2 favorite colors)  

 Here is the invite that I made:
{Available HERE in my Etsy Shop!}

I made the all the decor & had it revolve around the invites.... lots of purple, green & chevron:

The party was from 10:30 until 12:00, and all of her guests wore their favorite pajamas!
The first thing the girls did when they arrived is make a fruit loop necklace: 

Then it was time for pancakes! 
Kevin manned the griddle:

Kevin's Kate's House of Pancakes:
Lots of Pancakes for those sweet girls!

Toppings!  Syrup in a squeeze bottle is the way to go!
 I also had other food besides pancakes:

For the mom's that stayed, I made a Hashbrown Casserole
 And, Baked French Toast:
 Drinks....For the kids:

For the mom's:

And, you know one of my parties isn't complete without a desserts/sweets table!
 The banner I made:

On the table I had:

And, of course....the cake. If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that my mother in law makes the cakes for my kid's birthdays. Her cakes are amazing. Here is this year's cake, made to match the pancake on the invite:

After the girls ate pancakes, I had them do their craft. I bought a bunch of plain white pillowcases so they could decorate a pillowcase. It was such a beautiful January day in California, so they played in the backyard and made their pillowcases:

We ended the party with the cake!

 For the favors, I had "pancake" cookies made at our local bakery.

I love how they turned out!
 I put them in brown lunch bags tied with ribbon & added a sticker that I made.
 It was such a fun party & super mellow. All 14 girls got along so well.
Kate has meet some really sweet girls this year. Kindergarten is such a fun age!
I can't believe Kate will be 6 this week!

  30. I loved the Rainbow Art Party you had for Kate last year. I was planning to have it for my daughter this year (last year we moved right before her birthday so we didn't have a big party with friends.) But, now that I've seen this one, I may have to hold a pancake party! Pancakes and art are her favorite things! The party looks like it was fabulous!

Her full name is Kathleen. Thanks for becoming a Follower of my Blog and adding your link to Creative Monday. I am happy to follow back.

  36. Hi Mel, I've been a long time reader/lurker on your blog. I keep coming back for more all the time. I'm currently trying to plan my daughter's sixth birthday party and I am wondering where you purchased that perfect, child sized banquet table and chairs. I have scoured the internet and found nothing. Many thanks and keep up the great inspiring work! Jennifer
