Choose paper or reusable, but preferably festive 😊

Keurig & K-Cups

A donut buffet wouldn’t be complete without coffee!

If this donut buffet is primarily for kids, you could swap coffee k-cups for hot chocolate k-cups.

Festive Frosted & Decorated Donuts

I purchased chocolate frosted donuts and made them festive by drizzling additional frosting and chocolate on top.

However, you can also order festive donuts from most grocery stores and bakeries around the holidays.

Decorate-Your-Own Donut Section

Let your guests decorate their own Christmas donuts by arranging a section for festive frosting, sprinkles, and plain donuts.

I served my plain donuts in a decorative sled from Michaels.

Donut Ladder

One key to preparing a beautiful buffet table is dimension.

When I saw this decorative ladder at Michaels, I thought it would be perfect adding dimension, and for serving donuts.

Christmas Donut Buffet Table Tips

  1. Order your donuts in advance! Don’t assume your local grocery store or bakery will have exactly what you need. I made this mistake the first year which caused me to have to rush to prepare this table.
  2. A donut buffet table doesn’t need to include only donuts! Bacon and fresh fruit are my two favorite breakfast snacks to pair with donuts.
