Donuts For Dad

Isn’t it funny how Mother’s Day seems to be in ‘the news’ for weeks and Father’s Day just creeps up?

The Friday before Father’s Day is Donuts For Dad at my boys’ school. Dads are invited to an early morning breakfast of donuts and fruit and get treated like royalty. I love this idea and decided to make it a full-fledged party idea! Invite a few friends and family over and make your dads feel super special with your own Donuts For Dad Party.

Get the party started with a free donut invite download from Emmy And Gabbie.

Wouldn’t this felt tie from The Brilliant Crafty Type make the perfect invite? Back them with card stock and add the party info.

Megan Klauer Design created oversized donuts from posterboard for decoration.

I love the use of these paper ties from Kara’s Party Ideas; you could use them around drink bottles.

It doesn’t take a lot to making donuts even cuter! I skewered dipped mini donuts and donut holes with red cake pop sticks from The Cupcake Social, and fun Super Hero printables from SIMONEMadeIt. Color wooden skewers with this tutorial and make donut kabobs.

Of course you need a donut tree…from full donuts like this from One Charming Partyto donut holes like this one from Paisley Petal Events.

There is so much to love with this donuts tasting from Somewhere Splendid featured on Eat Drink Pretty; n do the same and get creative with different types. Mill Creek’s Frost Doughnuts carries flavors like Banana Crème & Walnut Bismarck and Bourbon Caramel Pecan. Krispy Kreme’s latest flavors are Glazed Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting and Key Lime Kreme Pie.

Of course you need A Beautiful Mess’ donut stirrers for your milk….

…and a donut cake from Style Unveiled as a showstopper…

Send them home with a smile with this clever favor idea from Stem Parties featured on the Hostess Blog. Score on containers from where else, Bellevue’s The Container Store.
