Last night we invited some friends over for a little Pancake Tuesday party.  Since it was a week night, we wanted to keep things pretty simple. I set up all the food in the kitchen so our guests could help themselves.

I fried up some sausage and bacon, and put together some fruit, whipped cream, and syrup. Everything you need for a perfect pancake supper.

Maple Syrup Can Centre Piece

My favourite element to the table was the centre piece. I was inspired by traditional maple syrup cans -sorry I forgot to turn it to the English side for the photo.

I had trouble finding some white tulips, so I ended up using baby’s breath which I actually loved. I’ve been seeing lots of spring decor on lots of blogs this week, but it’s still so, so snowy here. I liked how the snowy picture on the can, kind of made the baby’s breath seem snowy too.

I made a little drinks area with a side table and a sweet little drink banner. I’m loving the washi tape.

Pancake Tuesday Party Table

Since it’s still very much winter here, I left my snowflake runner on the table and lots of white candles. I used some recycled juice bottles and little more baby’s breath to add some flowers to the table.

Cutlery and Napkin Bags

For the cutlery, I used the washi tape again, to add a label to brown paper bags, and used them to hold the cutlery and napkins. I wrote “happy pancake day” on the tape to add a fun little detail.
