Summer is here! So how better to celebrate than with some cheerful brights coupled with a little culinary indulgence. Yes, I’m talking Donuts!
It all started late one evening, or rather 2 am in the morning when I was scrolling my Instagram feed, only to come across photos after photos of Donuts!
Then I read Kelly Lanza’s post on Studio DIY where she mentioned California Donuts. Shame we don’t have one in London.
Hunger pangs made this doc do a bee line for the nearest Donut counter the very next day, conveniently located on the ground floor of the hospital where I worked!
Naturally the Donuts were for the kids! Pink, tempting ones with multi-coloured sprinkles.
I didn’t know until those very early hours of the morning how big a trend donuts were in the States. I’m liking it a lot!
The Donut costume above is by Studio DIY.
Another one of Kelly’s DIY ideas is the Donut balloons. How cute are they for a party?
It was indeed another new discovery that one could buy Donut shaped balloons! In the UK, I’ve found them at Party Delights. I can see a fun DIY project with the kids coming up.
I’ve included some other fun donut finds below. I’m sure you are wondering why I mentioned watermelons in the title.
This is because it is the other Summer bright and delicious, but of course with a little less calories! See if you can spot the transition of the post from Donut to watermelon.

Watermelon wrapping paper idea found here. Would be a cool idea to adapt for fabric painting too. I wouldn’t mind a cheerful watermelon duvet cover.
Hope you’ve enjoyed this donut-watermelon post. Have a fab week ahead!
