Pancakes are yummy, but the real fun lies in the privilege of pouring syrup without parental guidance.
For Vivi’s pancake birthday party we transformed the house into a roadside diner. And yet again, we had another excuse to dress in silly costumes: me, as your fumbling diner waitress Shelly (think Vera with a touch of Flo) and Jonathan as the world renowned pancake chef Johnny Pancakes.
Johnny Pancakes kept the stacks tall and I put out bowls of fixings so the kids could create their own masterpieces. Blueberries, strawberries, chocolate chips, fruity o’s, raisins, and of course, an endless stream of pure maple syrup. I tossed some Honest wipes from the party the other night on the table. Wipes are a must-have for sticky pancake fingers!
After consuming all that sugar they really needed to burn it off. Thank goodness I had won a party from Wee Wigglers children’s entertainment at the Walk for Wishes last year. The kids loved dancing with Shira! I also rented a bouncy, just to make sure they got ALL their sillies out.
The favors were IKEA spatula sets wrapped in dish towels. I figured these would be fun but also useful.
Welcome to 3, Vi-Love! You are our endless stream of sweetness.
