Now, the pancake party! This was a little difficult to pull off. Hosting a pancake breakfast for nine girls in a space I've never seen, in a kitchen I didn't know would be equipped or not, etc. It was a challenge I was ready for. I did as much prep as I could before flying down to Florida. I painted smooth rocks silver and wrote our menu on them as a nod to Emily's engagement site, the Chicago bean sculpture. I bought small blue starfish and assembled blue and turquoise streamers in keeping with the fact that we were at the beach. I bought silver edged plates and napkins with a pretty blue pattern. The menu was blueberry pancakes and plain, maple syrup and fresh made blueberry syrup, sliced bananas, crispy bacon, coffee, and mimosas. And I didn't pull it off all on my own. Katelyn was a pro bacon cooker and Katy was my bartender. Here are some pictures from the party.

Finished product. Yummy and the most beautiful purple-y color.
The scene, I would've liked a few more of those streamers to cover the front
but you work with what ya got.

The spread, it was gone fast.
