My little sister is getting married this summer and this past weekend, I threw her the Pajama Party Bridal Shower that dreams are made of!
When my sister told me she wanted a Pajama party bridal shower, a la Kylie Jenner’s baby shower, I immediately dove head first into a Pinterest tizzy. Party planning is such a passion of mine, and this was the perfect excuse to go all out. After several months of planning, and with enormous help from my mom, I threw the shower this past weekend and I can’t wait to share with all of you the details that made this party picture perfect!
We started with the basics. The table and chairs. Any good pajama party involves sitting on the floor surrounded with lots of cozy pillows and blankets, right? I got 18 pallets, stacked them three pallets high and 6 pallets long, and created a 24 foot table. I covered the floor with burlap and then an assortment of fuzzy furry blankets and each girl got a large pillow to sit on.
Next came decorating the table. I love eucalyptus runners. So much so, that they were the primary floral decor at my wedding. Some more burlap and a long eucalyptus runner sprinkled with baby pink roses made for the perfect floral table piece.
One of my favorite pieces of the tablescape was the large white balloons with greenery on the strings. They made the perfect statement.
Balloon Arches have become so trendy recently, and I for one am all for it. They are so fun and so picturesque. A large pink, white and gold balloon arch was exactly what I wanted to hang over the food table.
Donuts, cereal, bagels, bacon and yogurt parfaits. What else does any pajama party need?!
My absolute favorite part of the party was the donut stacks that we had scattering the long 24 foot table. Made from wood candlesticks and poles, purchased from Michael’s and spray painted, these donut stacks were the absolute cutest (and yummiest!) addition to a tablescape that I have ever seen. With the leftover donuts that we had, we made a donut cake for the food table. Because every good party needs cake!
Fruit Loops, Lucky Charms, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Captain Crunch and Granola…need I say more? With the cereal filled apothecary jars, this was truly the Cereal Bar of my dreams!
My sisters favorite breakfast food is a bagel with all the works (cream cheese, avocado, cucumber, capers, sprouts and lemon pepper) so a Bagel Bar was an absolute must!
After donuts, cereal and bagels, I wanted to add some protein to our food spread so these egg bites and pieces of bacon were a welcomed option. We had two options of egg bites: ham and cheddar & spinach, feta and artichoke hearts. Made on silicone muffin tins, these are the easiest protein bites to make at home!
The final food station was a yogurt parfait bar with waffle cone bowls. Trusty 0% Fage, berries, banana, granola and honey – the perfect ‘healthier’ option for those that wanted one!
The Table Setting
Our table settings included a gold charger with a white square plate and pink customized napkins. As a seating assignment, I ordered these milk bottles from Amazon and wrote each girls name with chalk paint. As a party favor, everyone got a pink eye mask and gold under eye patches. To finish off the table setting, everyone got a “Who Has the Groom” scratcher, ordered from Etsy.
This pajama party bridal shower was truly magic and my sister felt like a PJ party queen. Party planning and throwing parties brings me so much joy and I am so lucky the bride-to-be chose such a fun theme for her bridal shower.
*special shoutout to my mom, who truly helped make it all happen*
We love you, Jenn!
