Our daughter, Kamryn, turned TWO last fall. I was trying to come up with a fun theme for her party. You can imagine my excitement when Jen, one of the Hoopla stylists, called me and said she had a great idea! “Let’s throw Kamryn a Pancakes and Pajama Party!” It was the perfect children’s party theme!!
Kamryn’s favorite breakfast food is pancakes! The Hoopla team got right to work and started planning her Pancakes and Pajama Party.
My color inspiration for the children’s theme party was hot pink and turquoise from the these adorable “mini beverage tubs” with the number 2 on them from Michaels Stores. I quickly contacted Kim from The TomKat Studio about designing me some printables for this Pancakes and Pajamas Party theme. Kim always does an amazing job and came back with the darling printables that you can purchase here.
We chose to have the party after hours at our local children’s museum. Kamryn loves to play here so we thought it was the perfect venue and invited all of the kids to wear their pajamas. Amber from Snippets of Design made custom pajamas for the birthday girl and her older sister. The ruffled pajama pants were so cute!
We served hot stacks of pancakes adorned with a darling flag from The TomKat Studio, eggs, mini boxes of cereal with wooden spoons and hot pink ice cream bowls from The TomKat Studio.
Fresh fruit in plastic cups with a hot pink cupcake wrapper , along with orange juice in our darling mason jars and milk in our fun plastic milk bottles were perfect for young kids! The adorable straws tags were a nice little touch for the polka dot straws that we used in the milk bottles and for orange juice.
Kamryn’s pancake stack was served on her very own personalized melamine plate from Sweet Mady Gifts. You can imagine her delight upon seeing this at her very own Pancakes and Pajama Party!
We added a pop of color to the guest tables by using the polka dot party paper from Smash Cake & Co. as our table runner. Place settings included paper plates and polka napkins with a wood fork. Every guest received mini bottles of water with a custom designed label, again designed with love from The TomKat Studio.
The dessert table was simple, classy and cute display. We used party paper from Smash Cake & Co. as our backdrop and we added a darling birthday banner from the printable collection. We love using the large birthday balloons at parties so we lined the dessert table with them. Stems Floral created the floral bouquets and filled the jars with cereal to match our breakfast theme.
The birthday cake was simply amazing and designed to match our party printables. Christina of 4 Kids Cakes is beyond talented! She made the cake and the donut cake pops which were a huge hit with the kids and matched the Pajamas and Pancake Party theme!
The custom pajama sugar cookies were also a favorite of the kids and Colleen from The Sugar Canvas Boutique Bakery always does incredible cookie designs! We rounded out the dessert table with a variety of donuts in the metal tubs from Michaels Stores.
CW Happy Creations made us a matching pennant banner to use on the favor table and a personalized monogram pillow for the birthday girl! Party Favors were a pancake cookie from The Sugar Canvas Boutique Bakery in polka dot favor bags with a thank you tag. We knew every little one would love this idea for our children’s party theme. We love using ceramic letter dishes at parties. At our Pancakes and Pajama Party we used these dishes to spell out the birthday girl’s name and we filled each dish with candy. At the end of the party the guests took home small bags of candy along with their cookies.
The kids had a wonderful time running around and playing at the museum. Our city has a new Children’s Museum and it was fun to watch the kids and parents enjoy themselves.
At Hoopla Events, it’s all about making your party the best it can be. We treat our clients parties with the same importance that we would our own parties, just like the Pancakes and Pajama Party we threw for my sweet daughter.
