Host a pancake & pajama party!
Gather your nearest and dearest for a festive, cozy breakfast that’s easy on you!
Set the mood for relaxed fun with a comfy dress code Invite everyone to wear their favorite PJ pants to the party, suggests entertaining pro Chandice Probst (Thisvivaciouslife.com). Then gift them with holiday-themed socks (like Christmas Fuzzy Socks, $ 20 for six, Orientaltrading.com) and get everyone together around the tree for a group photo! Make pine-cone place cards Greet guests and add seasonal flair by jotting a name on a patterned card and tucking it into a pine cone. For party-perfect holiday aroma, opt for cinnamon-scented pine cones ($ 3 for five, Michaels.com). Wrap up festive décor Decorating for this bash is easy, promises party planner Amy Stevens of A Lively Affair Event Design in Norfolk, Virginia. To get this look: Cover a mirror or piece of art with gift wrap, then use a stencil (like Stencil1 Antlered Deer Silhouette, $ 6, Target stores) to draw a reindeer on black paper; glue to the center of the wrapping paper. Add cheer with pretty plates To take clear plastic plates from simple to so-cute, print a greeting on paper and cut to fit the bottom of the plate. Use a clear glue stick to attach to the underside of plate; place on a larger plaid paper plate (such as Holiday Plaid Lunch Plates, $ 9 for 60, Partycity.com). Tuck a black paper napkin between plates.
