Donut Be Tricked! Halloween Party
Donut Be Tricked! Halloween Party
What fun I had tricking out my Donut Be Tricked! Halloween party for breakfast treats during Halloween. This party set-up is so easy and with a few supplies found at my dollar store I had it ready to go in an hour.
My little goblins will be greeted with a sweet Halloween treat on October 31st! We'll invite the neighbors to join us and get ready for the Halloween parade at school. What could be spookier?!

Donut Be Tricked! Halloween Party Menu
In addition to the fun and easy crafts, I stocked the party with everyone's favorite donuts from Krispy Kreme. They had a promotion that included two dozen donuts for $12.99, which I thought was a great deal. I even got another dozen for the kids' teachers at school!
Ice cold milk is an essential partner to any donut. I served milk in my vintage milk bottles and paired with a seasonal black and white straw in polka dots and stripes.
I displayed sweet and seedless satsuma oranges to round out the nutrition for a great start to the day. I found this festive spider web bowl at the dollar store too.
Donut Display Ideas
One inspiration for this party set up was my interest in creating Halloween themed donut towers and spooky vampire donuts.
To make the Sparkle Jack-O-Lantern donut towers you see here, I simply pulled the stem top off the pumpkin and inserted a painted bamboo dowel through a black plastic plate into the base of the pumpkin. I topped the bamboo with the pumpkin stem to finish the donut tower.
Sparkle Pumpkin Donut Tower Materials
- Dollar store pumpkins
- Dowel or bamboo approximately 12-16" long
- Orange or green paint for your dowel
- Glue gun and glue sticks
- Small black plastic plate
- Drill with bit the same diameter as your dowel or bamboo (I used my 3/8" drill bit)
To make your donut stand follow the instructions I laid out above and follow in the photos too.
Easily transform every day donuts into something sinister or at least cute and spooky. Try my vampire donuts.
- Vampire teeth
- Red cake decorating gel
- Candy eyes
To make your own vampire donuts, start by cutting your false teeth in half and slide into the center of your donut.
Next dot two bits of gel above the teeth and add your candy eyes.
Finally, add a little streak of red gel coloring on the side of your vampire's mouth.
Display these fun treats on my $2 cake stand!
To make your own, glue two small pillar candle holders to two plastic plates - one dessert size and the other dinner size. Now, place the dessert size stand on top of the dinner size plate and stack with little vampires.
More Donut Be Tricked! Decor
Try the BOO pumpkin that I featured in my Donut Be Tricked! Halloween party. Start by shaping black sparkle pipe cleaners into the word 'boo' and hot glue them to your pumpkin. Instant decor!
Add a few more festive touches with these alternating color jack-o-lanters that I used as the base for my donut towers.

Balloons Make the Party
For my Donut Be Tricked! Halloween party I included my favorite 14" foil balloons strung on orange and white baker's twine and attached to the wall with Command hooks.
Below my BOO balloons, I strung my favorite tissue paper tassel garland. I make these for all of my parties and have them made in every color so that I can simply mix and match as the season dictates.
