Breakfast in PJ’s Birthday Party

Breakfast in PJs

My cute daughter turned 8, and she wanted a Breakfast in PJ’s party, so that we did! She selected green and blue as the colors to decorate with, and helped me plan the menu: chocolate chip pancakes, orange juice, doughnuts, and lots of BACON!  They also made necklaces with fruit loops, and Trix Krispie treats. I feel like I actually had a toned down party after her sisters Pretty Purple Party in April, because it was a crazy week with family in town for her church baptism. As crazy as it is to make a cute tablescape, when it is all said and done, I look at it with as much joy in my heart as I would a finished bedroom makeover or family photo shoot–creating with color and style is fun for me. I don’t do it to “out-do” anyone else or to prove anything, just for fun for me and my kids who get a kick out of all the effort I put into it. I’ll be sharing the PB&J doughnut recipe next week, but everything else is pretty basic. Enjoy the pictures!breakfast bacon

I love my girl so much, and it was a delight to see her enjoy her friends at this fun gathering. To see some of the other past party creations I’ve thrown, check out my Parties section (also in my blog header for future reference).

    I’m doing this same birthday party for my daughter on the 29th! Did you have the girls sit on the floor to eat? Love your tablescape!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      Yes, I taped a plastic tablecloth to my kitchen floor and they ate there!

      • Courtney says:

        One more question: Where did you get the chalkboard stands? Hoping I can find them to buy locally rather than having to order. Thanks!

        • Kristen Duke says:

          I got ‘em from an online seller via I have seen mini chalkboards on a clip at Michael’s or Hobby Lobby I believe.

    Cute idea! It looks pretty good to me, even if it is your idea of “simple”!

  4. Super Cute! Is that a wall in your kitchen or dining area? The color is fab and works so well with the party decor. I’ll have to remember this for my daughters bday sometime. She would love it!

    On a picture note, it find it so hard to take pictures of things in front of bright windows like that.

      Nicole, wall is my kitchen and we just did it–sharing the room makeover next week! Yes, it is hard to plan around a window, but I had to do it with the green wall matching the colors!

  5. I love this idea–such a cute theme!

  6. Love the bacon and mini pancakes on sticks– cute way to display it vertically!

  7. Bacon on a stick…it doesn’t get much better than that! What an awesome party- way better than cake and ice cream. I think I’m going to do for this for MY next birthday ;) Seriously, the cutest idea I’ve seen in a long time…If I ever move to Texas I know who I’m calling for party planning!
