Go Nuts for Donuts!
What do you get for the Groom who is also a Police Officer? Why, a DONUT table of course!
Our Bride and Groom were both overjoyed when they finally saw the donut table we put together for their reception. She wanted a table filled with donuts for her Groom but did not imagine how cute it could be. We followed her wishes and created an actual experience that was much better than expected.
According to the internet, back in the 1950s, police officers on the graveyard shift would stop by donut shops—which were among the few establishments open late—to do paperwork and have a snack. Eventually a reciprocal relationship developed: Donut shop owners welcomed the protection of police officers, and police officers liked having a place to chow down late at night, so the association stuck around.

What do you think of when you imagine donuts? Can you almost smell the aroma of them being freshly made? Feel the warmth on your hands before you take a bite? Taste the sweet, melt-in-your-mouth goodness? Do you conjure up visions of a ‘Got Milk’ commercial in your mind? Or enjoy with your best cup of coffee? It makes sense that over 10 BILLION (yes, with a ‘b’) donuts are made in the U.S. each year!
Well, our round table was 360 degrees if goodness filled to the max with donuts and toppings of every kind. It was truly something to behold! Once the venue lights dimmed, the flashing from the toy police car at the top of donut tower led the way to sugar-filled dreams.
Guests were both surprised and delighted by the mountain of delicious glazed and cake donuts waiting for them. There was every kind of topping imaginable: chocolate, strawberry and butterscotch syrups, mini-M&M’s, coconut shreds, walnuts, almond slivers, Andes candies, Fruity Pebbles, and chocolate chips. Combinations were nearly endless as guests piled their plates high with donut rings of yumminess sprinkled with even more yumminess.
Donuts are not just for breakfast anymore!
OK, OK… I guess if we are being completely proper: it is actually spelled Doughnuts. So sorry grammar and spelling police… perhaps then you should go nuts for doughnuts.
