Donut Truck Birthday Party

I don’t know about your neck of the woods, but here–food trucks are all the rage! I love this party idea where a simply perfect theme combining trucks, donuts, and imagination is spun together to create birthday party success. My favorite element is the created “donut food truck” for the birthday boy to sell donuts to his friends.

The tasty treats and ideas to look for from this fabulous birthday event include:

  • A darling donut cake
  • Personalized paper plates and partyware
  • Cute donut banners
  • Donut balloons
  • Donut print sweet table runner
  • Adorable donut stationery and printables

“When I asked my super sweet 4 year old what kind of birthday party he wanted to have he (of course) said he wanted a donut party. So we had a donut party. I found a cute donut truck image on Etsy that became the inspiration and started planning different donut themed treats. It was a very sugar and carb heavy party!

I designed custom donut fabric that we embroidered on to his shirt–and topped the outfit with paper hats I embellished with some printables. We were ready to start selling donuts!

Since we couldn’t have an actual donut truck (they certainly don’t exist in Beaumont!) I constructed this PVC pipe awning to be a stand in. If anyone asked at the party, I proudly told them I made it ALL BY MYSELF after the man at Home Depot cut all the PVC pipe.

I tried to have a few breakfast-y type treats (pancake kabobs, fruit) to break up the plates of SUGAR. I commissioned a local macaron baker to make cute donut macarons and they were a big hit! I love using sprinkle mixes in the party colors to tie everything together. My macaron baker and the donut shop only thought I was slightly crazy when I asked them to top the treats with my own personal stash of sprinkles!

The cake was probably my favorite part–it was so simple to make! And so cute. I think this may have been my first party without cupcakes–but we certainly didn’t miss them! Have you heard of fairy bread? It’s an Australian treat–bread with Nutella and covered in sprinkles! I cut mine into donut shapes and snacked on it for several days after the party. I love making towers out of store-bought treats that take up a lot of visual space but are cheap and don’t take any time to make–so donut towers!

The cute little kids table was my favorite part. I used Zazzle to print paper plates to match the party and LOVED them! They were so cute and made the table look even more coordinated. We had just one more donut tower as the centerpiece. There’s nothing cuter than stacked treats with sprinkles!

Coloring walls are another of my cheap, large visual impact faves. This one was $4.78 at the UPS Store–it served as a wall decoration until we were ready to color it!

I was so thrilled with how this donut pinata turned out. I was dreading making it–but once I got started it was way easier and more impressive than I thought! Not to mention free–I already had everything on hand! We were a little worried it was too well constructed to actually break–but much to our relief, it did.

I think everyone’s favorite activity was decorating the donuts! The birthday boy ended up just eating spoonfuls of candy. And I let him.

The donut truck was probably my crowning achievement–the kids loved playing in it and the birthday boy loved pretending to sell us donuts!”
