Food & Drink
Guess what you serve at a donut party? DONUTS of course!
And not only deliciously fluffy and sugar filled donuts, but also things that go well with donuts and things that LOOK like donuts!
Besides the ring style donuts hung on your DIY pegboards, offer donut holes in the perfect cups for those who only want a nibble.
If they’re not up for ALL donuts 24/7, they can still satisfy their sweet tooth. These adorable “10” cookies fit the party theme with a donut look and colorful sprinkles. Cherylin of Treat YoSelf Treats shows how to make these royal icing donut number cookies to help fill your dessert table.
What goes better with donuts and cookies than ice cold milk to wash it down? Fill up glass milk bottles with white or chocolate milk and add a colorful straw decorated with a little paper flag inside!
A simple melon baller will make those health conscious friends happy when they see some skewers of fruit “donuts” for their enjoyment. Or bust out an apple corer and make apple “donuts” to health up the nibbles!
Be prepared to have a HOLE lot of fun at your donut party! Here are some ideas to get creative with some easy DIY party activities:
- Upon entering the party, encourage friends to leave their mark on your canvas guestbook. A single thumbprint can be added to the painted donut canvas which can later make a sweet piece of wall art to capture this milestone birthday celebration.
- Now that you and your friends are all sugared up with donut delights, you may want to avoid high impact activity. Consider creating a fun, yet safe, punch box to entertain friends and let them earn a little prize.
- Play a round of ring toss, only make the rings look like donuts!
- Is there ever a better time to play the good old donut on a string game?
If you want to thank you friends for celebrating your birthday, consider sprinkling them with love – literally! Gift them little jars filled with rainbow sprinkles and a decorative tag so they can keep the party feel going once home and baking up their own special treats.
