Donuts, sprinkles, coffee, friends and BABIES! Can it get much better?

When my friend Stephanie found out she was expecting her second baby boy, the idea of a baby sprinkle popped into my head. I’d been to one a few years ago and thought it was such a cute idea, and the perfect way to treat mama and baby number two. What is a sprinkle, you ask? Most moms don’t seem to go all out and splurge like crazy for baby number two. Not because they’re not excited, but because they’ve done it before and know what they will and won’t need, what’s a waste of money, and they likely already have most of the larger items on their first wishlist. They don’t typically tend to create lavish registries, and most probably head to second-hand stores for their needs instead of spending the big bucks on brand new items that will get used for six months and then be stashed to collect dust. So instead of a full-blown baby shower where people buy and gift all of those items, a baby sprinkle is a fun way to pamper the mom-{of two}-to-be and gift her the things she’s really going to need, like new outfits (especially if it’s a different gender), diapers, wipes, and gift cards. That way she can go shopping for nursery decor and that double stroller that she’s most definitely going to need.

When working with two of our friends to decide the theme of Stephanie’s sprinkle, “donut” was a no-brainer. I mean, donuts … sprinkles … it’s too perfect. I instantly contacted a new artisan donut shop, Good Dough, that would soon be opening and they were more than happy to accommodate our request and host our sprinkle for Stephanie and Baby Luke.

The shop itself is super cute (we had no idea what to expect since it had only just opened two weeks prior to our event, but it was perfect), so we didn’t need much as far as decor. We took over the large community table at the front of the shop, which kept us out of the way and in a semi-private area. We used the sprinkle theme for our decor accents, and added a few donut accessories and signs in the mix.

We ordered a few dozen donuts and offered coffee, milk and orange juice. The donuts … ohmygosshhhh. Go there and try one of everything. Seriously. You’re probably going to need to try the fried chicken doughwich, too. Mouth. Watering.
Our friend Amanda, who was one of the three hostesses, made these adorable flower centerpieces and chalk board signs. I found these milk bottles online and used melted white chocolate to “glue” the sprinkles to the rim.
 
For party favors, we did these donut-scented candles tied with a cute tag and a mini bottle of sprinkles.

Stephanie was, of course, glowing and looked absolutely beautiful.

 

It was such a cute sprinkle, and so much fun honoring such a deserving lady. She hosted both my “winter white” baby shower and Amanda’s “pineapple and palm” baby shower at her house, and is seriously one of the sweetest girls I’ve ever met. I’m so thankful to have her as one of my best friends, and she deserves nothing but the best.

Steph welcomed baby Luke into the world during the very early hours of this past Monday morning, three weeks early. I can’t wait to meet him tomorrow, and see little Charlie as a big brother! He’s four and the cutest, sweetest thing ever. He’s been SO excited about his baby brother! Congrats, Stephanie and fam. I know your world is now complete!

Also, a huge shoutout to Logan, Ariel and the entire Good Dough staff. You all were so great to work with, and helped make our party smooth and delicious!
