National Donut Day

Oh Hey Hooray for National Donut Day!! I don’t know if y’all saw our delightfully adorable celebration of National Donut day featured in Style Me Pretty Living, but we teamed up with our friends at Paper Heart Patisserie and Scarlett & Grace to make some yummy donut treats and decor.

We had fun styling everything with fun geometric shapes and pastel pinks and blues, and we came up with the idea of putting together a wedding donut bar. We thought “Everyone loves donuts!”, clearly, so we thought it would be a great idea for guests to be able to assemble a their own custom donut at a wedding donut bar. Amanda even shared with us her Buttermilk Donut Recipe for the donut bar! For those looking for inspiration for their wedding or shower, take a scroll through our photo shoot and see how much fun we had!


Check out the fun invites and crocheted donuts! We caught our model sneaking a yummy donut treat from our wedding donut bar!


From the cute painted tables to the painted silverware to the table block decor, this party is full of fun DIY crafts!


The triangles on top of the donuts is the perfect accent decoration for this clean geometric inspired party. Also, that mini donut garnish around the straw is simply adorable!


The colors picked for this wedding donut bar are bright, clean and fun. How lovely do those pastels look in the beautiful bouquet by Scarlett & Grace?


We thought having a wedding donut bar would be such a fun way to get guests involved in the wedding festivities! It could be fun adding a unique twist to a traditional treat by putting in different types of frosting, sprinkles and toppings to the donut bar.

For those who get thirsty from all the yummy donuts, we prepared pink glasses filled with milk, a cute little blue striped straw and topped with a oh-so-cute mini donut garnish.


We love, love, love these crocheted donuts from WhimzloveH63A0690
