With the back porch done, I've been looking for any excuse to spend time outside and enjoy this space before it gets too cold. Luckily, I didn't have to look far for inspiration. It was Sean's birthday this week and Chloe has been asking me to make him a special treat so while the two of them were off at ballet class, I put together this small but fun celebration.
I've been doing some online shopping lately so I broke out my purchases from Indigo. Seriously, I could buy everything in that store. These stoneware mugs (made to look like vintage tinware) were too cute to pass up as were these salt and pepper mason jars, which I filled with cinnamon and cocoa for topping. A-dorable. I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of these over the winter.
The pumpkin crunch pancakes were delicious. To make them a bit more special, I made them in mini form and placed them on a skewer accompanied by a tiny cup of real maple syrup. So easy for dipping and one-handed eating ;) I added a dash of pumpkin spice latte syrup to the hot chocolate and topped it with raspberry marshmallows I picked up at Bobbette and Belle a few weeks ago. Decadent!
