Pastel donut third birthday party
When your little dolly’s fave weekend ritual is to visit a local donut shop with dad to enjoy a pink donut topped with pastel sprinkles, it comes to mind pretty quickly when planning birthday surprises. Olivia’s mama Anne took the theme and added just about every pretty little detail she could think of (so be sure to peep the credits below), with extra emphasis on this most glorious dessert spread. Scroll down for more sweetness as captured by Cat’s Lens Photography!
Three goals for the party were for it to be 1) pretty, 2) whimsical, and 3) fun. Checkcheckcheck!
Aren’t these script place cards from POPPYjack Shop perfect little keepsakes?

Anne says, I created a pastel balloon arch filled with lavender, pale yellow, peach, light blue, mint green and pale pink balloons (of course) to frame the dessert bar. The desserts included an array of sweets—a strawberries and cream triple layer cake topped with pastel mini donuts and macaroons, an assortment of donuts with pastel frosting and sprinkles, donut + milk decorated sugar cookies and pastel meringues and confections. All the kids loved drinking milk out of the old-fashioned glass milk bottles topped with pastel sprinkles around the rim.
Eeee, so cute!
CraftylilStudio created custom donut banners too.
And to top it all off, they had a balloon artist there to make silly donut balloons and balloon animals.
Best birthday ever, right Olivia?
