Pancakes and Pajamas
If you are of the belief that there are few things in life better than deliciously sweet breakfast foods and a morning spent cozied up with your favorite ladies, then asking your girls to be part of your special day with a Pancakes and Pajamas party is definitely your style. Time to prepare the griddle and the matching sleepwear for the sweetest, comfiest of mornings.
Sips and Snacks: We have all heard of and likely been privy to the ever-popular mimosa bar, but what about a pancake bar? Hire a little help or recruit your mom to man the spatula so the flapjacks are continuously flowing hot off the griddle. Then, set up a toppings bar filled with fabulous fruits, chocolate chips, jams and syrups for a make-your-own pancake experience! Also, bubbles pair perfectly with pancakes, so go ahead and add in that mimosa bar you were inspired by. Pop, Fizz, Pancake!
Bridesmaid Swag: You’ve got the pancakes covered, now for the pajamas. Upon arrival, shower your squad with matching PJs, embroidered with their initials for that special touch. They can slip into them and get comfy before enjoying the breakfast spread and also wear them on the morning of the big day.
Serendipitous Ice Cream Social
Ice cream socials aren’t just for kids and can be a whimsical way to get your best girls together and ask them to be in your wedding. Truth be told, we all scream for ice cream and nothing says celebration like sprinkles! Plan an afternoon of indulging in a variety of delicious desserts and, if you’re feeling boozy, opt for a few spiked concoctions as well.
Sips and Snacks: Clearly, the theme is centered on ice cream, but there are so many whimsical treats that can be made with everyone’s favorite frozen dessert. Think trays of homemade chocolate chip cookies for creating ice cream sandwiches, old school glass bottles of coke and root beer for float-making, toppings as far as the eye can see for ultimate sundae building and a blender at the ready for milkshake making. Don’t be afraid to think outside the box in terms of flavors- traditional chocolate and vanilla are a must, but after that go out on a limb with unique combinations from a local creamery! Lastly, roll in a little bar cart with nips, like vanilla bourbon or vodka, if you want to turn those milkshakes and floats boozy.
Bridesmaid Swag: Make your ice cream social extra special by gifting your newly minted bridal party with personalized spoons! A set of two is super cute when stamped with your bridesmaid’s name and the date of your upcoming wedding and are expertly themed to your ask party.
