Dunkin’ Donuts Party Theme {50th Birthday}

dunkin' donuts party with a dessert table

For all my coffee addict friends, this clever party idea is for you! Heather helped celebrate her friend Karen’s 50th Birthday in style with a Dunkin’ Donuts Party Theme full of yummy breakfast style sweets, coffee (of course!), and festive decor in the signature Dunkin’ Donuts palette of bright pink & orange. What a fun & creative way to ring in any coffee-lover’s milestone birthday!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Dunkin’ Donuts inspired personalized water bottle labels
– Centerpieces featuring bud vases flanked by cute “Family. Friends. Coffee.” mugs
– Photo collage in the shape of “50” as personalized wall art/backdrop
– Hash brown breakfast cups (recipe link below!)
– “Coffee with Karen” bunting + framed pink and orange graphic art

This party turned out SO great Heather! The ruffled tablecloths look super cute! And I totally think Dunkin Donuts should take note and change all their branding to look exactly like this party. :)

Cool Birthday theme, especially the DD decorations. Seems like it would be great for a youger adult/child. In keeping with the theme, Dunkin Donuts offers a free beverage for your birthday. http://www.fatbirthday.com/gifts/dunkin-donuts/
