Aw, Sweet: A Doughnut-Themed Wedding Shower

Back when I still had metabolism, my friends threw me a surprise party for my twenty-second birthday that included a towering cake stand of jelly-filled doughnuts. (Best birthday cake ever.) So, naturally, I am enamored with this wedding shower thrown by A Beautiful Mess blogger Elsie Larson for her brother Doren and his fiancé Sarah designed around the bride's love of doughnuts. Complete with chocolate milk, doughnut-hole drink stirrers, candy, cake, and the requisite photobooth, the party looks like a deliciously sweet sendoff to the couple a month out from their wedding day. If any of you feel inspired enough by this celebration to plan your own sugar-fueled shower, don't forget me in the invite list. —Phillip B. Crook
