In the months leading up to my daughter, Emory’s first birthday I was looking up first birthday party ideas. And I’m pretty sure I was scrolling through Pinterest when I saw ones like “Wild One”, “Sweet One”, and other cute princesses, baby shark, and character-themed first birthday ideas.
But the one I was most interested in was the donut themed first birthday theme. There seemed to be several different turning one sayings like ” Donut Grow Up” and “Sweet One”. I loved the idea of setting up a donut wall pick, putting her in a cute donut-themed outfit, and intertwining solid pink decor with donut themed birthday decor.
It wasn’t long until my initial idea transformed into the real deal plan and I was going out to purchase items for her first birthday party months before she turned one. Since I basically spent months planning for my daughter’s donut themed first birthday party, I had to put together a blog post on some of the most adorable donut themed birthday party supplies you can find at Target and Amazon. Like how convenient is that?
Donut Grow Up Party
But first, I wanted to share some pictures from Emory’s Donut Grow Up first birthday party. We didn’t reserve a venue or anything but I loved how homey, fun, and intimate her birthday party was. We held the party at our house and invited our neighbors, friends, and their babies.
The donuts were an absolute hit. I ordered two dozen donuts and three dozen donut holes and they all got eaten.
I have a funny story about this cake. So I originally looked on my local Facebook food page and asked if anyone could make me a donut themed birthday cake I found on Pinterest. And a few people gave me their rates. However, I was not about to pay more on a single birthday cake than I did on the rest of her birthday party supplies.
I went to Wal-Mart right down the road and asked how much it would be for a cake like the one I found on Pinterest and my total ended up being $16. They did a beautiful job with the drip effect and an emphasis on pink sprinkles along with rainbow sprinkles. On top of that, I stuck a few donut holes I had ordered and a whole donut on top of this cake and made due. For $16 I think I did a dang good job, don’t you think?!
Donut-Themed First Birthday Party Supplies
I divided the donut party supplies you’ll need into three categories: food-related, decorations, and others. You’ll see what I did as you scroll through. But I also further organized the donut themed birthday supplies by stores, Target and Amazon.
- Paper plates
- Plastic silverware
- Plastic cups
- Table cover
- Donut wall pick and mix
- Food and donut trays
- Cake topper
- Cupcake topper
You can always do a mix and match of donut-themed supplies with solid light pink or bright fuchsia pink items. This way you are saving money especially if you have a lot of guests. And honestly it might look better to do it this way so it’s not TOO donut-y (I totally just made that word up).
