Tegan’s Third Birthday Party *Pancakes and Pajamas*

So Tegan recently turned three, and for her birthday this year she wanted to have a Birthday Breakfast! This was a great idea because at this age, she doesn’t have many friends but we do have a lot of family- so it was a nice way for everyone to get together and celebrate her, but we still aren’t to the age where we have to do something really extravagant to keep a bunch of kiddos entertained.

A lot people have asked me what all we did for her party so I thought I would do a small blog post about it. It was super easy, and a lot of fun.

For starters we needed a venue. Our house is definitely not big enough to comfortably seat 40 people and feed them, so we used our church Fellowship Hall. This was a great place to use because they already had tables and seating available, plus a full kitchen so we were able to cook that morning.

I used the round tables for dining and the rectangle tables for food and presents.

It turned out so cute, you can order yours HERE!

Tegan also decided that we needed to wear PJs to her breakfast party– and DUH, we did!
They turned out better than I could have imagined, and we got them from HERE!

I spent the night before prepping as much as I could. Me and my dad precooked as much as we could and I set up the tables, and set out cups, plates, napkins… just anything to to make Party Day less stressful.

You’re probably wondering what we chose for the menu? Well, we had a variety of stuff to choose from because we have gluten free family members, some that don’t eat pork, and some vegetarians- so we wanted EVERYONE to be able to enjoy!

For the drinks we just did coffee, orange juice, chocolate milk and had bottles of water.
We also had out snacks because we knew people would show up hungry, but since we wanted everything fresh- we would be cooking. So we had a spread of three different types of muffins, mini cinnamon rolls, fruit and donuts.

The theme was Pancakes and PJs, so of course we had PANCAKES!!
We offered beef sausage, and Conecuh sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy,  turkey bacon, and pork bacon. We served everything in warmers.

While everything was cooking we had small crafts for the kids. 11257127_824428880967376_5805546004229288362_n

We did cereal bracelets!

I also made some little coloring sheets.

And during breakfast we read If You Give A Pig A Pancake -they L O V E D it!
