Bubble Birthday Party

Hooray!  I have time to craft for fun!  Last week my sweet nephew turned 2 years old.  Really there couldn't be a cuter, sweeter boy.  He has everyone in the entire family wrapped around his little fingers.  So with the adjustments I made to my blogging schedule, I had ample time to help my sister prepare for the big birthday party.  Today I want to share just a few peeks into the party.

My nephew loves bubbles, so this theme was perfect.  Despite the enormous wind storm on the evening of the party (and it was all planned for outdoors!), we made it work.  In fact, perhaps the massive winds actually provided for bigger bubbles!

Decor & More

Funny Story:  I made the hanging circle garlands.  Every time the door opened, the wind knocked them down.  I think we re-hung them at least 4 times!  Darn wind.  My sister was so clever!  She planned the entire dinner menu around "Round Foods" and "Foods that Pop." I was surprised at everything she thought of!

Round Foods - Pizza balls, Meatballs, Fruit Rounds, Vegetable Rounds, Sliders, Chips, Cake Pops

Foods that POP - Popcorn/Caramel corn, Candy that pops (Blow Pops, Ring Pops, Pop Rocks), Popsiciles, Popeye's Spinach Salad, Popcorn Chicken Jalapeno Poppers, Corn Dog Poppers, Soda Pop.


After dinner, it was time to play with bubbles of all shapes and sizes!  The birthday boy was perfectly content with the bubble machine all night long.

With all the wind, you barely had to blow.  The wind did all the work!  The kids loved running around chasing the bubbles!

My favorite bubbles were the fly swatter bubbles!  The kids dipped 50-cent fly swatters in homemade bubble solution and just ran around the yard.  It was amazing to see how many bubbles they made!  Little Man is already begging to do this again.  We may be doing this all summer long!

Who knew there were so many bubble contraptions?!  And the cool thing is they are all inexpensive.

The kids played a fun Cake Walk game in bubble style!  They jumped on bubble wrap with colored paper underneath.  Once the music stopped, the child on the color selected got a sticker!  They absolutely loved jumping on that bubble wrap!

What a fun time!  On our way home from the party, Little Man said at least 3 times, "Mom, I really loved that bubble party."  Great party, sis!!

Did you have a happy Memorial Day?  I hope so!


P.S. Oopsey Daisy's final business post is coming up in the next day or two.  From here on out--it's all fun!!!  So exciting.

  14. Looks great! I work as a Children’s Entertainer and Magician and in the summer I sometimes get asked to provide bubbles for parties. It’s more than just magic, it’s magical.
    Have you seen the bubble thing? It might not be suitable for two year olds, but it’s great for older kids. It can create ten foot long bubbles – It’s amazing!

  19. What a fun party?! I just love the bubble wrap game and will be using it at my son’s party. The main reason I visited your blog is because I would like to know the name of the font that you used for the “bubble party” title and “birthday boy” sub-title. I’ve been searching for it for a week with no luck. What’s the name? Thanks in advance 🙂

  20. cake pops are essential for my kids B-day parties. Mine are gone in about 5 minutes flat. 🙂
