Real Party - Party With A Purpose Fundraiser Event


With the arrival of spring, of course that means it is FINALLY time to share a fabulous party I was part of last summer.  I say it's a perfect way to celebrate spring because decorating doughnuts is a great brunch or spring fling idea.  Yeah, that was a bit of a stretch but I'm running with it.

Last year, a local doughnut place named FROST moved into a larger location, and it got my party wheels turning.   I approached them about having a open house party to show the locals the new digs, and what a great space it would be to host your own party.  Before I knew it, it turned into Party With A Purpose, a fundraiser for the amazing Seattle Children's Hospital.

It was an amazing afternoon with lots of kids and lots of fun decorating doughnuts, sampling new cupcake flavors and general excitement .  I even met a few of SCH young patients and was so grateful they could attend and have an afternoon just being kids.

I've been waiting to share professional photos. Unfortunately, at the last minute, the event photographer fell through and another was used, but that was a wash too.  I snapped my own photos last minute, so some of them aren't the greatest.  With everything going on, I didn't get many photos while the event was going.  But I think there are enough photos here for you to get the gist, so grab a cup of coffee and your favorite pastry, there are a lot of photos ahead...

Of course, I was in charge of decor, activities, thank you bags, you know, event coordination, so I reached out to some of my favorite party vendors to join the party and they were game! The goodies started rolling in and I couldn't wait to get everything pulled together.

We used two color schemes, SCH's logo colors in orange and teal and FROST's pink and brown.

Unfortunately, I didn't get a photo of inside the thank you bags for our ticket holders...FROST employees assembled 100 of them on site while I was setting up and then the event started, yada, yada, yada, no photos of them. Let me paint a picture of what was inside each bag...

As if decorating doughnuts wasn't enough, Caravan donated their Ultimate Lemonade Stand collection so we could put up their wall posters for the kids to color.
