In Sarah's words on why she chose breakfast:
"I came up with the idea because it's my favorite meal to cook and eat. Also, we held the party from 9am to 11am on a Saturday which is a great time for the toddler set."
And look at the fun invitations! You have to click on the picture to see them up close! Cute!
Sarah describes making them:
"The invites for the party were eggs that I cut out of white & yellow card stock and strips of bacon also out of cardstock. I stuck them together with some foam tape & a glue gun so they had some dimension to them. The bacon strips, menu card & smilie face (two eggs & bacon) favor tags were designed by my sister."
"For food, we did mini fruit kabobs, sticky buns, blueberry muffins, cherry sausages & maple bacon from Swiss Meats, an omelet roll in plain and spinach, buttermilk pancakes and crepes with various toppings. The rolled up crepes were the biggest hit with the kids since they could eat them with their hands. We also provided a bloody mary and mimosa bar for the parents because really, every one needs a cocktail at a birthday party with 7 three year olds! Almost everything I made or mixed the night before. I was lucky enough to have my dad on hand as the "pancake guy" and he flipped fresh pancakes."
Sarah also did mini donuts on a stick. These were donut holes pressed onto lollipop sticks and stuck into floral foam to stand. I love how she pulled in some color with the ribbon on each stick.
Birthday cake? Nope. A hot stack of pancakes!
"I purchased inexpensive red & white check plastic table clothes that were bigger than normal size and worked to cover my entire kitchen island, the dining table and the two mini tables for the kids. I got real plastic divided plates for the kids and heavy plastic for the adults because who wants to cut a pancake on a paper plate! I did make some balloon flowers in red & yellow to decorate."
Sarah also made these adorable and theme fitting eggshell tea lights. Very easy to make!
Just break the shells gently.. just enough for the tea light to fit. Then make stands out of strips of cardstock taped together on the underside so the tape is hidden.
"I wanted to stick with the breakfast theme for the favors so we did plastic cereal bowls filled with a slime egg toy (got these at the dollor store) mini boxes of cereal and easter eggs filled with egg shaped candy!"
Thanks again, Sarah, for sharing this great 3rd birthday party for sweet Leah!
