It’s Donut Day! (Like we needed an excuse)

As if a Friday wasn’t enough reason to celebrate, it’s national donut day! We chose to celebrate as a Milou + Olin team and chugged down to one of our favorite haunts, Doughbot, to pick up some tasty treats. It’s a good thing we were quick about it, because snagged the last few!

And what better way to celebrate national donut day than with a donut bar!!? Quite a fabulous idea for any event, really.

We shot this amazingly delicious set up a few years ago, with the help of Audrey of Botanica Floral Designs  and Alice Koswara for her lovely styling and paper goods design. I love paper, and am addicted to paper as a designer, so I can’t get enough of Alice’s designs! The delectable donuts were from Dynamo Donuts!

This idea was inspired by our shared love of donuts and coffee! And of course, everything pretty and cute. And guess who got to finish the donuts and coffee after that?

Don’t you love the invites that Alice designed for the event? So cute! Each guest also gets to go home with their donut hole doggy bag with cute little stickers. And while you are at the cupping and tasting party, guests get to fill out custom coffee cupping cards so they can write down what they thought about each coffee and rate them according to their taste, aroma and more. We loved the idea so much we did the same for the donuts, a donut rating card! After all, we can taste donuts all day long. Guests can rate the donuts yumminess, looks, texture and filling as well as aroma!

Social Distance Digital Party Time!
