As I’ve shared, Holden’s eating habits can be challenging. As such, I would say the kid probably eats pancakes for at least seven of her weekly meals (don’t judge me; sometimes it’s not worth the battle).
So for her third birthday this year, I decided to go with what we know and have a breakfast pancake party… a Princess Pancake Party.
We took over the mezzanine level of our Central Market House downtown. The Market is closed on Sundays, but Mezzogiorno at the Market is open and happens to make bangin’ pancakes.
I decorated the mezzanine with Dollar Tree finds, in pink of course. And yes, those are frappuccino bottles doubling as vases. I saved a case of them after seeing a cute Pin for a milk and cookies party theme. No, I never had a milk and cookies party. Yes, this is the first time I’m using them in two years.
I gave the kids a table of their own and filled it with activities to (hopefully) keep them entertained while waiting for pancakes.
Coloring books, crayons and glitter pens to decorate their individual princess hats (again, all Dollar Tree).
Breakfast snacks consisted of a breakfast pastry platter, fruit tray, coffee, mini bottles of chocolate milk and orange juice… and mimosa fixings for the grownups (especially for me).
The birthday girl was so excited to see all her family and friends gathered to celebrate her.
It was a perfect #whatholdywore opportunity to capture her party ensemble.
Holdy and her friends had fun coloring and decorating their hats.
And the moment we were all waiting for: Birthday Pancakes!
After we all ate pancakes and Holden opened her gifts, the party was over, lasting about an hour and a half in total–my kind of kids’ party!
Oh, and I’ve been trying to find theme-appropriate t-shirts for myself to wear to each party. I found this tee at 5 Below (flower crown is my own!):
I’m thinking this may be our last birthday party for a bit. Although this party was relatively easy to pull off, I’d like to focus on fun activities/experiences, rather than a party, for the next few birthdays. Remind me I said this next year!
