“Pancakes and Pyjamas Pamper Party'”

It was my first Retirement weekend off, (from the event planning) and I was getting all anxious over it. With the work load reducing throughout the weeks before this, I was finding myself with quite a bit of spare time, and a Friday all to myself…In my house… Alone…With nothing to do …..is scaring me.

So I sent a message out to one of my girly groups

(excuse the typo…)

I wasn’t anticipating alot of us as it’s a Friday morning, everyone’s at work, appointments, childcare etc. I thought Evan if their’s one or two people, it’ll be a nice catch up and my day will pass- and hopefully I’ll have to start to get use to …. Doing nothing on Fridays from now on?!

Well what happened? You can see from some messages above, It ended up being a full house.

Initially it was just going to be a Fry up – Eggs, Beans, Toast, Sausages… But the more people that confirmed, the more my brain started ticking…. And when my brain starts ticking…. I go into Overdrive.

At the same time it was one of the girlies birthday, and having just had given birth to a beautiful baby- she was very much looking forward to some time out and the invite couldn’t have come at a better time for her.

The initial small and quick fry up ended up being a full blown “Pancake and Pyjama Pamper Party”

And here is a pic:

So what did I do?

Before I start can I just share this Cup and Saucer set with you? How beautiful are they? I have an obsession with cups and saucers (and Tea) you’ll definately be seeing more as I go along. But this is my favourite set to date. Mine are actually from a trip to Africa (Malawi- my birth country) and they were gifted to me.

If you are interested you can get these in John Lewis or Debenhams or evan online. They are by Villeroy & Boch and cost £24 for one set.

From the above picture I’m sure you have already worked out eggs beans and sausages were ruled out. Instead I decided to do a Mediterranean style breakfast party with…. Well… Pancakes- because I wanted to call it “Pancakes and Pyjamas Pamper Party”

We had Gronola with vanilla yoghurt topped with raspberries, strawberries and blueberries.
I bought a selection of Mini Cereal boxes, and made Bruschetta with Omelette. Also Mini Pancakes stacked with strawberries and banana were a hit.
I sliced up a few fruits and presented it on a fruit board., And in the background I also made a small cheeseboard with different cheeses and crackers.
I bought loads of fresh cakes, croissants, tea cakes, fruit loaves, scones. All from the Lidl Bakery on the day and stacked them up. I also bought mini jams and marmalades from BnM store.
And this has to be my Favourite. The Mediterranean board, full of Falafel, houmous of different flavours, cheese and chives, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, pitta breads and wraps.
I brought fruit juice from Iceland and added in sliced lemons, limes, strawberries and mint. (Doesn’t it look a picture?)
And then the Birthday girls cake. I kept to the theme of the party and made a Pancake… Cake. (See earlier Post for a step to step guide on how I made this)

And lastly the teas and coffees. Here’s a final video….


So how did you find my party and set up? Did you spot the shishas? Yup. You did. Wait for my next blog on what we got upto.

Give a quick like and a follow.

Love and regards
