I first saw a donut tree at my friend’s Halloween party almost 10 years ago (hi Emily!) But I think it works great for a party any time of the year. It is a simple concept but makes a really great surprise or visual when you are having an outdoor party. Am I the only one that would like to live in a world where donuts grow on trees? Right before the party starts tie a bunch of donuts to a tree at varying heights (depending on the heights of your guests.) We pre-tied ours in the box so set up went extra quick. You can either make it a “bobbing for donuts” type game where guests can’t use their hands or it can be just a funny way to serve donuts. And now, on to the pictures of backlit donuts.
