Whether for a birthday or for just feeding the kids from a sleepover, a Pancake Breakfast Party makes mornings more fun! Plus, it’s a great way to start the weekend and to say “I love you” to your family. Here are the easy steps to planning your own Pancake Breakfast Party.
Pick your theme and color scheme. I used pink and yellow and went with a Good Morning theme. The day before, I printed out the coffee wrappers, food toppers and straws. (You can download the Good Morning party printables here.
Set your table the night before. If you are using individual containers, have them on a tray and ready to fill. The morning will be easier when you wake up with everything in place.
Pancakes are the star of the morning, and Bisquick® makes them easy to prepare. Bisquick® pancakes have been a family tradition since I was a little girl. They cook up fluffy and thick. You can make them ahead and keep them warm in a 250°F oven.
Be creative with your pancakes. Have a stack of regular pancakes with bowls of berries and flavored syrups to go on top. For the adult guests, how about Bourbon, Apple and Bacon Pancakes? Amazing!
A few weeks ago, a good friend and I hosted a Princess Pancake Party with a pink ombre decor.
We started with homemade fruit cocktail and then dug into a stack of Pink Ombre Pancakes. Make the original pancakes from the Bisquick® box, divide the batter into three bowls and drop 3 shades of pink food coloring into the bowls. The girls loved them!
Fill glass jars with Cheerios® or Golden Grahams® cereal.
Serve warm coffee…or spoil your guests with lattes! Make Hot Chocolate Shots for the kids.
Serve Oven Baked Maple Bacon. It is so easy! Place strips of bacon on a foil-lined pan with a rack on top. Brush with maple syrup and bake for 20 minutes or until crisp. For an extra kick, sprinkle a little black pepper over the top prior to baking.
Spoon your homemade or canned fruit cocktail into individual glasses. You can also skewer grapes, dip them in lime juice and roll in sugar; freeze for an hour. They can be edible stirrers for water.
Set up a table and print out cards telling your guests what you are serving. With everything in individual servings, your guests can grab what they want.
