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.

(Non alcoholic) 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.

(Non alcoholic) via chelseasmessyapron.comI 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!A great idea for a party, baby shower, wedding shower, birthday, etc. An easy PANCAKE BAR with a SPARKLING JUICE BAR! (Non alcoholic) via chelseasmessyapron.com

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!

(Non alcoholic) via chelseasmessyapron.comThe 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!

  1. Chelsea what a fun post to read!! I LOVE all the pictures especially the one with your cute Little Bentley. Please, say to your mom that I love the chalkboard art. It is absolutely amazing. She is very talented! Although I am a teacher I am like you, I have no talent for writing with chalk!

    These pancake and sparkling juice bar are incredible! GORGEOUS!! And I love the size of the pancakes! They are so cute 😉 Waffles and pancakes are my absolutely favourite recipes for breakfast.

  2. This is a wonderful idea for my daughter’s upcoming birthday party. Pancakes have always been my favorite. From pumpkin to chocolate chip, there isn’t a kind I don’t like.

  3. I love this! My favorite breakfast food is my mom’s blueberry French toast casserole. It’s a holiday staple in our family and brings back so many great memories.

  4. I gotta say that was one of the most clever and fun breakfast ideas I’ve ever seen!
    My all time favorite breakfast is cinnamon french toast – simple I know but I love it!

  5. What a brilliant and fun breakfast idea! My favorite breakfast food is probably hash browns, but I also love pancakes and waffles. 🙂

  6. This breakFeast party is such a cute idea. I’m going to have to do it with my friends on a Saturday night. Pancakes, french toast & biscuits & gravy are the best…. But I love fried potatoes/hash browns.

  7. I especially like the sparkling juice drink bar. I’ve made lemonade that way for a refreshing addition to our family bbq dinners, and everyone always raves! Such beautiful party ideas!

  8. My dad died almost 6 months ago and I crave his waffles. Every Sunday for the past ten years he woke up early so he could make waffles and spam for everyone. As I was reading this I realized that I should start the same tradition with my own family. Breakfast foods are magic and this brought a flood of memories of my dad in the kitchen. Thank you!

  9. Love a pancake bar idea, also a must try on the juice bar. How have I never come across this idea? Waffles are my fav breakfast item (obviously the older cousin to the pancake!)

  10. Pancakes are by far my favorite! Pumpkin, oatmeal, blueberry, chocolate chip…mmm! Excuse me while I go make up a batch 😉

  11. Those pancakes look AMAZING!!!! Definitely trying this for my daughter’s sleepover. Fried Chicken and brown sugar waffles are my favorite breakfast foods. I wish I liked eggs because I see so many wonderful choices. Love your recipes, keep up the AMAZING work!!

  12. We love all things breakfast, but our all time favorite is a fresh crisp waffle with butter and syrup, yum ! thanks for the yummy giveaway !

  13. I love this idea… I did a savory breakfast bar with a Bloody Mary bar…so much fun! My favorite breakfast is pancakes.

  14. My favorite breakfast…….skillet breakfast. Or maybe pancakes. No, waffles. Or sausage and eggs. Or maybe bacon. Or…….yeah, I like it all!

  15. Brilliant! My kids would go ga-ga over a pancake bar. We LOVE breakfast food. And those sparkling juices…. mmmmmm…. Our family favorite is waffles and our waffle iron of five years just died on us!

  16. Hey Chelsea

    Our favourite breakfast in our household is pancakes with a choice of fruit toppings (banana/berries) with pure Canadain Maple Syrup! I also like to make fresh almond milk in my cappuccino 🙂

    Our 2nd favourite are homemade frittatas made with grilled veggies (asparagus/mushrooms/tomatoes/potatoes/cheese).

  17. My favorite breakfast item is not just one thing. But I loooove whole wheat toast and strawberry preserves…omg I can eat it everyday. ?

  18. First off, I LOVE your blogs and have tried many of your recipes. Your recipes are simple and you are also very cognizant of making sure ingredients are reasonably priced and healthy! My fave breakfast is Baked French Toast! I have it on the holidays. Please keep on posting, b/c I keep reading and eating!

  19. I love waffles the funny thing is I hated waffles and pancakes up until last year I don’t know what change but something did!

  20. Your breakfast party looks fun, clever, and so tasty! My favorite breakfast is sour dough waffles made from my Grandpas start. Probably 30 plus years old that sour dough starter.

  21. I just stumbled on your recipes on Pinterest! I really like what I’m seeing so far. This is a great idea for a breakfast/brunch idea that I may implement myself, especially with family visiting for the upcoming holidays.

    I love, love, love a good Brioche French toast topped with fresh strawberries and bananas. Fruit is an important part of breakfast for me.

  22. French toast is my favorite breakfast item. I usually take two pieces and make a grilled cheese sandwich with them. It tastes like an omelet, but is handheld. A griddle is perfect for doing that.

  23. This is beautiful! Definitely mimosas with everything, but avocado on toast with lots of black pepper and a sprinkle of Himalayan pink sea salt is my favourite!

  24. I love your recipes so much! So thank you for giving me such a great resource for home cooking! I particularly love your foil pack recipes.

  25. I love the idea to make smaller pancakes. I didn’t know how to make sparkling juice. Thank you! Our favorite breakfast is waffles. I still use the iron I received as a gift 23 yrs ago as a wedding present. I freeze berries from our garden and make syrup all year to put on our waffles and pancakes.

  26. I love pancakes for breakfast! I am in a Moms club and we have monthly brunches. A pancake and sparkling juice bar would be a perfect brunch idea!

  27. I love pancakes, and think your idea to make small ones so you can try several different toppings is very clever!
    And the sparkling juice bar is a very festive touch.

  28. PIE! Who can resist a piece of leftover pie for breakfast 🙂 I would settle for pancakes too, if someone else besides me was doing the dishes!
