"Sprinkled with Love" Donut Baby Shower

If you read our blog regularly, you know we have a slight obsession with donuts! So of course we had to come up with a donut illustration and we had the perfect occasion to do so! Our sweet friend Katie is pregnant with her second baby girl and we really wanted to do something special for her...so we decided to throw her a little baby shower. Baby showers for second babies are called "sprinkles", so we wanted to play off of the theme “sprinkled with Love”! We also wanted the shower to include Siena, Katie’s daughter, to help get her excited about being a big sister!

We thought it would be really fun to have a donut tasting bar. We set out plain and flavored donut holes from a local bakery on a long white plate. On each side of the donuts we set up jars with homemade caramel and hot fudge sauces and apothecary jars with chocolate chips and toasted coconut. We created a little “donut bar” sign to set on the table as well. We also set up a three-tiered pedestal with graham crackers, pretzels, marshmallows and strawberries so that people could use the sauces as fondu if they wanted to.



We also made mini cupcakes with pink buttercream and a mini donut on top! At the ends of the table we set up “donut” shaped cookies that were pink with white sprinkles, we placed them next to pink bags that we glued doilies onto, so that everyone could take one home...(or eat it there if they wanted.) As another take home gift we made mini jars filled with caramel and hot fudge sauces with one of our “sprinkled donut” tags that read, “thank you for sprinkling Katie and Siena with much love”. We also created a “Sprinkled with Love” letter garland to hang across the front of the table.






We made fabric covered embroidery hoops in the color scheme of Katie’s nursery to create a backdrop for the table. (We let her take them home after the shower so she could hang them in the nursery) We also used some of the fabric as a runner on the table to offset the white table cloth and used the rest of the fabric to cover the mini sauce jars that everyone took home. We used lace and pink ribbon to tie around mason jars with pink and white polka dot straws filled with pink lemonade for the kids. We also got disposable coffee cups and tied an elastic ruffle ribbon around them and put a donut circle tag on them for the adults to have their coffee out of.



We served really simple plates of fresh vegetables and assorted cheeses, crackers and candied nuts.

We made Katie a corsage to wear out of paper flowers so that she could save it in her baby book!
Katie’s sister, Becky was recently married and Katie created the most gorgeous ruffle garland backdrop for a photo booth at her wedding. So Becky brought the gorgeous backdrop with her and a chalkboard. We all took turns writing a note to the baby on the chalkboard and Becky took photos of us so that Katie could save the photos for her baby book! It was such a fun idea and great way to remember that special day!
