A Donut Themed Wedding Shower






















This past month Didier and I hosted a wedding shower for our little brother, Doren, and his beautiful fiancé, Sarah. Our sister-to-be is a donut lover, so we thought it would be fun to create a donut theme for the entire party! We had a wonderful time. It was the perfect way to celebrate with Doren & Sarah. Can't wait till their wedding…. next weekend! 


These are a few photobooth pics. We had SO much fun! Thanks for taking a peek…. Helen

  • Aww, how sweet! I love the way you used a chalkboard as the menu. And that little donut print dress is so cute!

  • This is so cute! The donut holes decorating the drinks is such a neat idea, and I love the photobooth shots at the end. Congrats Doren and Sarah! So happy for you two!

  • SOOO cute! I am on a diet right now, but now I really really want a donut!
