Balloon garlands are so popular and make the cutest backdrops. For this donut theme party, we used light pink, rose pink, and white latex balloons in both 5" and 11". Check out the blog post about how to make a simple balloon garland for your next party.

I arched this balloon garland to create space for the giant donut sprinkles balloon to fit in the center of the backdrop. It looks so cute behind the cake.

A donut party is not complete without some fun donut-shaped plates with matching cups and napkins.These pink donut party goods with bright colored pastel sprinkles will have your guests raving.

Everyone expects donuts at a donut party, because who doesn't love donuts! 🍩 💕 There are so many different types of donuts, flavors of icing, toppings, and fillings to choose. Some easy donuts to find at grocery stores and bakeries are glazed donuts, cake donuts, and donut holes!

There are several cute ways to display donuts. If you'd like, you can create a board backdrop with pegs to place the donuts on. Platters and cakes stands are an easy solution to stack and display donuts. You can also place donut holes in sprinkled snack cups or treat cups which are ready for a scoop of ice cream or to add more toppings.

You can add some simple cupcakes with sprinkles for an alternative dessert besides donuts. Dress cupcakes up in these pink and white striped baking cups to match the partyware!

Another alternative dessert to serve are some donut-shaped iced cookies frosted to match the party colors. Aren't they so cute?!

While the kids are snacking on these desserts, they'll love to sip on regular or strawberry milk in matching donut cups with sprinkle straws. You can also serve coffee for adults to enjoy!
