Welcoming a new baby into the world is always cause for celebration! Whether you’re throwing a baby shower for a first time mom-to-be or are hosting a “sprinkle” for a seasoned veteran, a Donut Themed Party lends itself to the sweetest decorations and desserts. Join me as we take a look at this darling Sprinkled with Love Donut Themed Baby Shower for inspiration!
Kristen and Rachel wanted to put together the perfect baby shower for their dear friend Katie, and what could be a sweeter spot than a donut shop in Historic Downtown Duluth? With their hosting location nailed down, they went to work with event planner Ivory and Pine Co crafting a beautiful donut themed day to Sprinkle their friend with love.
If you haven’t heard of a “sprinkle” before, it’s like a mini shower and typically thrown for moms who already have a child or children at home. They may not need all the typical first baby gear, but a sprinkle shower enables their family and friends to celebrate the new baby with fresh gifts, clothes and wished for items.
The donut theme was set with these lovely “Oh Baby” invitations (you can find a similar invitation here)! Using donuts as your party theme is incredibly versatile, so you could also do a “Donuts and Diapers” invitation or a “Sprinkled with Love” invitation like we found below…
Donut Baby Shower Decor Ideas
Because this baby shower was hosted on site at an adorable donut shop, decor was kept simple and totally sweet! From the sprinkle filled candle holders to the cute signs and lovely white flower arrangements designed by Flowers by Holland, guests enjoyed seeing this party theme brought to life!

And can you even have a party these days without a fancy photo backdrop? I think not! This beautiful blue and white photo booth with giant balloons next to a gorgeous balloon arch over the sweet treats really brightened up the outdoor patio! Plus, it was the perfect spot for the mom-to-be to capture pictures with her friends.

Donut Shower Food Ideas
Clearly, the staple at a donut themed baby shower is… donuts of course! Katie and her guests enjoyed a variety of donuts and pastries from Simply Done Donuts along with delicious fruits and vegetables, all beautifully displayed on unique serving trays.
And another great addition to your dessert table would be these custom donut sugar cookies! Yum! You know I love cookies as party favors and these beauties would be perfect for that!
Sprinkled with Love Games and Favors
One of the shower hostesses put together a few quick party games to play while everyone was enjoying their donuts in the sunshine. You can grab several printable donut themed party games, including the Baby Animal game the guests played at this party right here.
After a perfect day celebrating a happy mother-to-be, guests left with these darling lip balm favors packaged as donuts. Isn’t that “Thanks a “Hole” Bunch!” sign clever? You can find printable donut lip balm holders to make your own here or match the Sprinkled with Love party theme with these donut lip balm holders.
The mom-to-be had a wonderful day and felt sprinkled with love by all of her family and friends. I hope you found inspiration for the next party you’re planning!
