I know what you’re thinking, what in the world is a donut wall? Well, my friend, if you’ve never seen one, you are in for a treat!
Donut walls are literally what they sound like. They’re walls full of donuts. Which is actually a dream come true!
Usually, they take the form of peg boards and the donuts hang on the pegs. They’re a cute and fun way to display your desserts as well as a unique decoration idea.
Some couples choose to use donut walls instead of a traditional wedding cake, others use them in addition. It’s really up to you! We’re not going to tell you how to use them. Our job is to give you some inspiration!
So, let’s dive into the donut hole and get a better look at this tasty trend!

This donut wall has a fairly rustic feel to it. You’ve got the greenery decorating the top of the wall and some lace around the side to make it fit with the wedding décor.
