The donut wall trend is still gracing weddings this autumn, which is excellent news for donut-loving brides and grooms. There are plenty of ways to dress a donut wall display with fall flavor. Muted colors and classic harvest ingredients replace the neon frostings and fruity donuts of the spring and summer for couples creating fall donut walls.

Rather than a collection of donuts decorated with brightly colored sprinkles, autumn calls for donuts topped with glaze and muted or jewel-toned frostings. While it may seem boring, glaze offers you many flavors to choose from, including chocolate, maple, cinnamon and caramel. If you opt for a small collection of different glazes and frostings, keep colors from varying too much. A monochromatic look adds sophistication to your dessert table.

Donuts and coffee are the perfect pair. On a chilly October evening, guests will love other hot drinks to pair with their donuts as well. Hot apple cider and hot chocolate are unique options that help bring out the delicious fall flavors of your donuts. Plenty of tea options, including a few spicy or fall-flavored varieties, should also be part of your offerings.

Your fall donut wall can be blended seamlessly into your décor. Soften the display with greenery, flowers, doilies behind the donuts and soft lighting.

Donut walls don’t have to just be for weddings. After your nuptials, repurpose your peg board display for fall birthday parties, Friendsgiving and holiday brunches!
