8 Creative Ways to Serve Donuts This Holiday Season

All of us here at PartyIdeaPros LOVE donuts. So when we were challenged by a reader to come up with 8 ways to serve donuts this holiday season, it was challenge on! Personally, we would probably glitter up our donuts with red, green, blue, silver and gold edible glitters, depending on what holiday we are celebrating that day! Add or subtract edible glitter, to taste (and yes, pun intended!).

Family Matching Disney Holiday Pajamas

How fun would it be to do Christmas in Family Matching Disney Jammies! Think Frozen & an All Olaf Family (ok, if you have a little princess, she can wear her Elsa sleepwear!) Consider placing this peel & stick giant Elsa wall decal behind your Christmas tree decorated in blues and whites. Now set up your tripod and insert Olaf clad family into the pic. This picture is definitely holiday card worthy!

Or maybe stick with traditional Christmas colors and make it an All Disney Christmas. The best part is that pajamas can double as Halloween costumes.

Surprise Dad with a ‚ÄúLegendary‚ÄĚ Father‚Äôs Day!

Looking for a fun and unique way to celebrate Father’s Day this year? Go retro and throwback the clock to the 1990’s.  Think Legends of the Hidden Temple or Double Dare or any other 90’s TV shows that today’s younger dads grew up watching. Now you can not only introduce Dad’s favorite show to the next generation, Dad can act like a kid again, and get away with it.  Plan ahead to create a fun obstacle course and backyard game emporium that the whole family can participate in and continue to enjoy over and over again throughout the summer It can be as simple as using pool noodles, duct tape & wooden dowels. Check out the How2 video in the post. Also lots more fun retro backyard games and where to buy Legends of the Hidden Temple shirts and gear.

Check out our full post for ways to plan a legendary Father’s Day that is not only a stroll down memory lane but also a day that goes down in the memory books!

Wedding Flip Flop Pails

Wedding Flip Flop Pails

Wedding Flip Flop Pails

Although designed as an entryway repository for sandy flip-flops, these flip flop pails can also serve as ice buckets, planters, and are the absolute perfect accessories for beach theme weddings.  As many of you are well aware, flip flops have replaced socks on wedding dance floors throughout the country.  The issue is not whether to supply flip flops but rather how to display them in a festive, sophisticated manner befitting a wedding. When we found these adorable wedding flip flop bins on Belle & June we just had to share! They are absolutely perfect for beach theme and destination weddings.  And since they are trimmed in gold, we think they would work just fine at just about any wedding.  These wedding flip flop pails will add a needed touch of whimsy to even the most formal black tie affairs.  These flip flop bins will work equally well at a beach theme fundraiser,Bat Mitzvah,Sweet Sixteen,Quinceanera celebration, or any party with dancing!  

Party Hearty!
