A fun pancake and sparkling juice bar idea – perfect for parties and large get-togethers!
I’ve been beyond excited to share this fun breakFEAST Pancake/Juice Party with you all! What goes better with pancakes & syrup than juice and what is better than the two of those for a fun Fall breakfast bar/party?!
So let’s start off with the PANCAKE BAR:
To create this pancake bar, I used pancake mixes (regular + funfetti), tons of fresh berries and fruit (strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, and sliced bananas), spray whip topping, sprinkles (for the funfetti waffles of course), and of course lots of pourable syrup.
To make sure all the guests could sample both flavors of pancakes and a variety of toppings, I made the pancakes quite small. I used brown food trays for serving (no dripping syrup off of plates!) to make it easier to hold everything the guests wanted to sample.
Little Bentley could not get enough berries.
I lined french fry/appetizer baskets with checkered paper to put the berries in and add to the overall vibe of the party. I also used a few stems of baby’s breath which I put in thin vases to surround the chalkboards on the table.
And the cute chalkboard art? I wish I could take credit for it, but that is my mom’s talent. About 50% of the art in my home is pictures of my babes and the rest is chalkboards that she has designed and decorated. I have a minor obsession with all things chalkboards and unfortunately no talent for writing with chalk.
On the other side of the pancake bar, I featured this Sparking Juice Bar. The more pancakes that guests ate, the more juice they drank. The two pair perfectly together!
I grabbed some of the same fruit used with the pancakes for the juice bar and then cut up a few other fruits. All in total there was a blackberry/blueberry combo, sliced limes, sliced lemons, sliced peaches, and fresh raspberries. I also had a small bowl of fresh mint that could be added to the glasses.
Behind the fruits there was a variety of sparkling juice flavors.
^^^Favorite drink of the party: sparkling limeade with raspberries, lime, and fresh mint!
The sparkling juices couldn’t be easier to make, I grabbed 6 different frozen juice concentrates in a variety of flavors and then mixed the concentrates with sparkling water.
Chill the sparkling water and then instead of adding regular water to the juice concentrate, use the sparkling water in its place with the same amount as the concentrate suggests.
Here are the concentrates we used to make juices:
✔ Strawberry Breeze Juice Concentrate
✔ Pineapple Orange Juice Concentrate
✔ Lemonade Juice Concentrate
✔ Limeade Juice Concentrate
✔ Passionfruit Juice Concentrate
✔ Grape Juice Concentrate
Grab a few liters of sparkling water and the sparkling juice bar is ready to go!
And that wraps it all up!
