Pastel Donut Birthday Party Details:

This is what Aracely shared about the party- “My sweet girl could eat a donut a day if let her, seriously. When I asked her what theme she’d like for her 6th birthday she said she just wanted to eat donuts and wear a pencil skirt (random I know). So we decided on a donut themed party. But, now I had to find a cute pencil skirt for her to wear!

This year, my girl was in Kinder. She had a good size group of close friends of her own, and I decided to keep her party very small. I also wanted to keep the girls entertained with something they enjoy doing. What little girl doesn’t enjoy making crafts?! I found the most adorable scented squishy donut charms on Etsy! I got them so the girls could make their own donut necklaces! My friends over at Happily Ever Etched host workshops in their store, they were so gracious to let me host this craft workshop for my birthday girl and her small group of girlfriends there.

Party Printables

My party planning process with the invitation. I was looking for something cute and simple. I reached out to Colleen Michelle Design on Etsy, because she had the perfect donut invitation printable! Printables are the way to go for me! My hubby is a printer so it’s a no brainer and seriously the most cost effective for printing party invitations.

The dessert table was seriously a donut wonderland. We served my girls favorite donuts from Krispy Kreme. The French Confection Co. whipped up a gorgeous drip cake topped with donut macarons, mini donut topped cupcakes, and donut iced sugar cookies. I asked her to make me donut sprinkles and of course she delivered. The donut shaped cake pops from Bella Bakery were the cutest! We also served little brigadeiros, from Simply Brigadeiro, in donut shapes and traditional ones topped with donut and bow sprinkles.

Donut Decor

The décor and design of the dessert table was a pretty fun to put together. I wanted to use a round table, instead of the traditional rectangle table, so that it could look more like a donut! I rented a vanilla cake colored linen and handmade a table topper to look like the pink icing with sprinkles. The topper was made out of pink felt fabric. I cut a circle shape, trimmed the edges and cut out a hole in the center.

Lastly, I made sprinkle stamps out of potatoes and stamped the topper with different color paint. It came out super adorable! For the backdrop, I made a big fringe donut and got a laser cut sign custom made by Happily Ever Etched. They also made matching cake toppers and picks for my desserts to tie it all in! I strung a garland of paper donuts from Party Hearty Shop along with the super festive and pretty fringe tissue garlands from PaperFox LA. I was super loving their dip dyed garland!

Adorable Favors

Guests took home donut favor bags along with scented donut soaps from Soapopotomus (I had to keep those separate from the favor bags because they looked like chocolates!). They got to fill up a cute to-go treat boxes I purchased from Oriental Trading with all their favorite goodies from the dessert table to enjoy at home.

The flowers were so perfect! I asked my good friends from Cerritos Florist to design some whimsical, soft pastel floral arrangements to go along with these donut vases I hand painted. I used those as the table centerpieces but also wanted to accent them with these cute milk jars I found at Michaels. While I knew I wanted to put flowers in them, I thought it would be pretty awesome to fill the milk jars with actual milk instead of water.

Milk Flowers

A part of me thought it was a genius idea but then the thought of flowers in milk seemed weird to me. I also worried they would wilt and turn brown. I had never seen it done before. So I had to ask my florists friends and they wanted to go for it! They also figured out a genius way to make sure the flowers stayed looking fresh. I’m so glad we went for it because they turned out super duper adorable!”

      Hi Yana! There are so many details in this party. Lots of info is found at the bottom of the party post. Here is what the stylist said about the table runner: “I rented a vanilla cake colored linen and handmade a table topper to look like the pink icing with sprinkles.” If you have any more questions you can reach out to the party stylist directly. Her name with a link is in the first paragraph of this party post. XOXO!
