Oh hi there, so PLAID you came.
The Lumberjack theme is both hilarious and practical, somewhere between the beards and lumber. We’re so in love with this trend, we found everything you need to host a party of this very theme, plaid and all. Namely, a Lumberjack Bash.
Suitable for ALL ages, this is going to be the party that is worth remembering.
Flapjacks and Lumberjacks, need we say more?
These tiny pancakes on a stick can be made ahead of time easily (even days before) and assembled when needed. Serve with some maple syrup for an unforgettable party food.
