It’s almost Pancake Tuesday, and time to start thinking about a special pancake dinner.  No matter how old you are, who doesn’t love the idea of pancakes for dinner once a year?  This is such a fun tradition, and one that my family loves!

Entertaining on a weeknight can be tricky, but this easy party is perfect for family and friends.  I’ve made it a little easier with some beautiful free printables you can print, cut out and hang up for a festive atmosphere.

For the backdrop to the pancake buffet, I used inexpensive tissue paper and twine to create some pretty tissue paper tassels. These are really simple to make, and have a big impact.

The cute little watercolor pancakes were made by my youngest daughter Maddie.  I love them.  You can download them here.  Just print them on card stock, cut them out, and create your own pancake garland.

What’s cuter than a pancake?  A smiling pancake.

We also created a Pancake Party invite.  You can print it out and send it to friends for your own little get together.  Download it here, print it, cut it out and add in your details.

For the table, we used maple syrup cans for vases.

I love that they have painted on labels, and such pretty pictures of little maple sugar shacks, and lots of forest trees.  The blue in the cans inspired the colour scheme of light blue for the party.  We kept the rest neutral with natural brown kraft paper and lots of white.

For the place settings, I used some cute denim napkins and the sweetest printable pancake jokes.

The printables help take this get together from a simple dinner to a party.  Even if you’re just making pancakes for your kids, I guarantee they’ll love the pancake joke printables we came up with.  You can download them here.

Along with the jokes, I made some mini tissue paper tassels to tie the whole look together.

I also made a batch of Pancake Sugar Cookies.  I’ll be sharing the recipe later this week.  They’re easy to make, and so, so cute for Pancake Day.  I added one to each place setting, and one of the little girls who loves sugar cookies was asking us “where are the sugar cookies?”  she thought they were actual pancakes, so I guess that was a good sign, lol.

We set up an easy, help-yourself, pancake buffet for dinner, complete with lots of fun and delicious pancake toppings.  We love this set-up for a party, since guests can help themselves and you can enjoy yourself too.

We also made some sweet strawberry shortcake stacks.  I love how these look, and they were delicious too.

I used simple mason jars and offered different berries, along with some sprinkles, since it was a party.  I also made a little whipped cream.  And of course, we had to have lots of real maple syrup -we are Canadian after all.

I also had some more of the Pancake Sugar Cookies on the Pancake buffet.

Since it was dinner, we also fried up some bacon and sausages.  The perfect accompaniment to lots and lots of pancakes.

For drinks, I offered guests some orange juice, since it seems like the perfect accompaniment to pancakes.  And for the grown-ups, I picked up a bottle of sparkling wine, so we could turn our orange juice into mimosas.  Special Tuesday night treat, haha.

This little party was so much fun.  Whether you set up something like this, or just print out our pancake jokes and make your kids pancakes for dinner, I hope you’re feeling inspired!
