A Shopkins Pancakes & PJ's Birthday Party
As a kid, is there anything more exciting than your own birthday party? Judging by how often we had to answer the question "Is it my birthday yet???" the last few weeks, I don't think so! We held Chloe's 7th birthday party this past weekend and combined two of her loves, Shopkins, and her favourite family tradition, Pancakes & Pajamas.
As Chloe gets older, she still wants a themed birthday but nothing too over the top. We kept things fairly simple for this party. I recycled decorations (the rainbow bunting is from Chloe's 3rd birthday) and on the menu were easy breakfast foods like mini pancakes with maple syrup, bacon, fruit skewers and banana bread. Fussy, fancy foods just don't work with 7 year olds.
We scheduled the party early at 10:30 in the morning and everyone wore pj's. The girls had fun decorating pillow cases (I stencilled their names beforehand) with fabric markers and glow paint, and making Froot Loop necklaces.
Chloe was insistent that she help with the planning of the party. She loves the details just like me :) The Easter Bunny had bought her a clay kit to make Shopkins-like figurines and she made over 30 of them which we used to make charm necklaces for each of her guests.
