Over the holidays, we celebrated my sister and brother's December birthdays with our fourth annual family Pancakes and Pajamas party. It's that wonderful time of year where we eat breakfast for dinner in our pjs. December, or winter, birthdays can be difficult to plan because you're likely to be stuck indoors. But this winter party idea for adults is just as enjoyable for the kids. Who doesn't like to be cozy in their pajamas??

Pancakes and Pajamas Winter Birthday Party Idea


It was my favourite P&P party yet! You might wonder why I'm posting about it now but I think it's a perfect party theme for the winter... you can stay indoors, you can host it at home, and you can eat all the warm, hearty food you want because you're already wearing your stretchy (pajama) pants. I think this would be a unique Valentine's Day theme party as well. I know I'd love to be surprised with a spread like this for Valentine's dinner - any excuse to eat chocolatey french toast is a good one :)

I think this would make a fun winter birthday party idea for teenagers or young kids as well. Everyone loves breakfast food and its a treat to hang out with your friends - everyone can wear their favourite onesie and just be silly.

Pancakes and Pajamas Party Menu


I've played with the menu over the years, but I've learned that when it comes to breakfast, our crowd is happiest with simple comfort foods. Baked eggs, Sean's crepes with DIY fillings, filipino sausages and bacon... nothing too fancy, just familiar tried and true foods.

Our Menu:

Baked Eggs with Bacon and Spinach
French crepes   **side note: just saw this crepe kit which would make a great Valentine's gift
Berry Nutella French Toast Bake (so good!)
Fresh Fruit
President's Choice Sparkling Juices

I've heard that baking bacon in the oven tastes better so I gave it a try. It tasted delicious and was an easier way to cook a big batch! I'll definitely use this method in the future.

Winter Birthday Party Decor

The great thing about winter birthday parties is that you don't need to make them too "themed" - you can just make them "seasonal". For our party, the table decor was simple but just enough to make the meal feel special. Faux bois chargers, greenery, and napkins wrapped in strips of buffalo plaid fabric created a cozy setting. It was a wonderful way to enjoy a meal and spend quiet time with my family amidst the bustle of the holidays.

Do you entertain during the winter months? I need to do more of that.
