You guys, this flannel and flapjacks party was so much fun! I love getting together with friends and especially love themed girls night out parties. I know, I am one cheesy girl but it’s just so much fun. This year I decided to create a rustic flannel and flapjacks holiday party. I couldn’t find a tablecloth that I loved so I just went ahead and bought this perfect sheet set from Target. Sheets and wrapping paper work great in the place of a traditional tablecloth.
I used my wood chargers to keep the rustic theme going as well as this elk antler from my brother-in-law. Wasn’t that so nice of him? His only request was that I not paint it gold. It was tough but I decided the rustic antler was great on it’s own. The cups were found in the clearance section of HomeGoods in a pack of six for under $10…score!
Since the breakfast dinner was filling but we were moving to another room for the rest of our flannel and flapjacks holiday party festivities; I made a treat bar. I wanted something close to the family room that the girls could pick and choose goodies from when they wanted. Since I didn’t want the girls to have to use utensils to eat, I chose sparkling cranberry cupcakes, peppermint brownie bites, pancake decorated sugar cookies and mini pancake topped maple cupcakes (recipe below).
This was also where I housed some of the party favors. I did mini canvas bags filled with our dry Glutino gluten-free gingerbread pancake mix, a holiday cookie cutter and mini Nutella.
I made sure to have plenty of sugared cranberries for the girls to munch on and top their gingerbread pancakes with. We had a variety of syrups as well including cinnamon, maple and spiced buttermilk. Waiting at the table were vintage looking holiday bags, again found at HomeGoods for $0.99 each.
I also made sure first thing that each girl had a Sweet Savannah Co. signature shirt. It read, flannel & flapjacks these are a few of my favorite things. Everyone looked so cute in them!
After dinner, we headed into the cozy family room around our Christmas tree for a gift exchange. We read this funny story that had each girl passing left and right until they ended up with a gift to open. I also gifted the girls with cozy socks to snuggle their toes up in. They also got a red nail polish for painting their tootsies during the movie.
The whole evening was a fun celebration of friendship. I loved seeing the girls laugh and visit over a casual meal and movie while comfortably enjoying a girls night in flannel jammies. This flannel and flapjacks party is one I will surely remember. I hope you guys can recreate for your own friends. Merry Christmas!
