this month for the additional RS message I did a pancake party.
we had a bunch of pancake mix left over from a summer breakfast that the ward did, so in attempts to use what we already had, I came up with a pancake bar.
I just gathered some frames from around the house and created some some chalkboard typography, which is all the rage in pinterest land, and for good reason. It's super cute.
I thrifted the three silver vases? buckets? (I don't know what they are called?) for 5 bucks and filled them with stuff I found outside.
Unfortunately I forgot the table cloth, so everything looks a bit unfinished but other than that it all came together nicely. (sadly I did not get a pic with the pancake platters. they went in that big empty space)
I made 4 different kinds of pancakes:
for toppings I did
I bought the sqeeze bottles (98 cents each) from walmart and made some labels.
the jams and stuff were in mason jars with labels I made.
I found this birdcage (I have been wanting one forever but havent found anything inexpensive till now) at ross for 7 bucks! I was happy about that find. I think I am going to spraypaint it for my house now that I have used it for this (i didn't purchase it for this specific thing, it was just good timing as I have been looking for one forever)
I had bought the two metal baskets at a thirft store for 2.50 and put some moss in there for the jars.
I added a couple candles and a goard (sp?) for some filler and that was it.
I put the pancakes on silver platters in the big empty space on the table =)
and a water jug on the end of the table (after the pics were taken)
