It’s National Donut Day!!! I need to meet whoever came up with this special day dedicated solely to the yummy sweet goodness that is donuts! I seriously love donuts… maybe even a bit too much. There are giveaways galore and I’m sure I may indulge in one or maybe even two of the sweet round sugary treats.
I once attended a wedding where the bride surprised the groom with the groom’s cake. The grooms cake was a HUGE donut, this donut had a life of it’s own, it was about 24″ in diameter. The donut was also decorated in frosting with a Star Wars theme and the DJ played the intro to Star Wars when the donut was rolled out for presentation, it was such a unique touch and something I’m not soon to forget.
So in honor of National Donut Day let’s explore two fun ways to add donuts to your wedding events.
A ‘Donut Bar’ at your Bridal Shower
Food bars are all the rage lately for weddings and events; popcorn bars, candy bars, veggie bars, the list goes on and on. If you or the bride you are planning the shower in honor of, are partial to donuts, why not have a Donut Bar at the bridal shower? Have the treats made at a local bakery to reflect the color palette of the shower or get iced donuts and offer toppings on the side for guests to create their own concoction!
Who Needs a Cake
Break with convention and have a Donut Tower at your wedding, who needs cake?! Ok, i’ll admit I am not a huge fan of cake (blasphemy, I know) and would more than likely opt for a Donut Tower in it’s place. Set up ‘shots’ of milk beside your Donut Tower for your guests to enjoy, equipped with striped paper straws for nostalgia.
Are any of my fellow LoveBirds enjoying a donut on National Donut Day?
