Pancakes and pajamas go together like chocolate and peanut butter, so I decided to throw a super fun pancakes and pajamas party at my house for some friends. Because really, it doesn’t get much better than eating carbs with your friends while still in your PJs!
Since this was a going to be a fun friend gathering, I wanted to include fun breakfast foods- pancakes, donuts, fruit, cereal, and milk. You know, the essentials.
I also picked up some Clorox Disinfecting Wipes from The Clorox Company, because sticky frosting fingers and sprinkles, while colorful and delicious, can also mean a big mess. I always keep a stash of Clorox Wipes because they’re such a simple way to wipe up all the messes that life can throw at us… especially those of us with four kids!
Pancakes and Pajama Party Details:
I wanted a unique way to display regular-sized and mini donuts, so I got crafty and designed and made my own donut stands.
They were really easy and inexpensive to make, and I’m pretty proud of them!
To display the donuts in a tall stack at our pancakes and pajamas party, all I had to do was stack the donuts on my DIY donut stands and they were ready to go.
I’ll be sharing a tutorial for these soon so you can make your own set. Because I’m pretty sure you need some of these like I did!
Fruit is always a favorite breakfast treat for me, so I filled up some waffle cone bowls with strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries, and grapes. Once we ate the fruit, we could also eat the bowl, which is pretty cool!
Donut holes get fancied up a bit when they’re put on colorful paper straws. The straws poking up through the top of the holes made these little treats easy to grab and eat, and less of a mess on the hands.
No breakfast would be complete without pancakes, so I whipped up a batch of them and stacked them tall on a serving stand. Guests used a fork to pull off their pancakes, and we added fresh fruit, butter, and syrup over the top. Mmmm…….
Two big glass jars were filled up with our favorite cereals, along with a metal scoop for scooping out the cereal in our bowls. Friends could pour milk from a pitcher, or use the cute milk glass bottles filled with milk for their cereal as well as for drinking.
If you know me then you know I just couldn’t leave those milk bottles plain, so I stuck a sprinkle-covered donut hole a few inches down on a paper straw, then added a powdered donut from the bottom of the straw, then rested it all on the top of the milk glass bottle.
Donuts and milk together? Um, yes please, did you even need to ask?! This IS a pancakes and pajamas party after all!
Balloons, colorful paper, and shiny gold confetti on the table finished it all off with style and some added fun. I just love how it all turned out, and my friends were pretty excited too.
Once we had stuffed ourselves and everyone had gone home, it was time for me to do some clean up. Clorox Disinfecting Wipes to the rescue!
Those wipes handled my sticky sprinkle-covered dinner table like a champ, and soon everything was back to new again. I love that these wipes can handle all kinds of surfaces in different rooms of my house!
Any leftover food went in my trusty Glad containers from The Glad Products Company. These plastic containers come with lids and are safe for the microwave, dishwasher, and freezer, and keep my leftover food fresh!
