Throw a fun-filled bubble party for the carefree boy or girl who loves to play outside. Bubble parties make for a fantastic 3rd birthday party theme for boys or girls, and have the added plus of a built-in activity. Gather your ideas and bubble party supplies, and then sit down to organize your invitations, decorations, activities, the menu, the cake, and party favors.
For the invitation use round blue or white cards – write the party information on the inside. Buy small blue or white plastic balls and write the party information on the balls with a permanent marker.
Buy small individual bottles of bubbles and pour out the bubble solution (retain for later use at the party). Dry the bottles. Print out party information (4 invitations per page) and cut out. Roll the invitations into a scroll and place through the bubble wand hole. Replace the bubble wand and send to party guests.
Serve cupcakes in place of a birthday cake to keep things bubbly. Top the cupcakes with creamy white icing and pastel confetti. For another option, serve cake balls with frosting on the inside and cake on the outside. Bake the bubble birthday dessert yourself, or buy it from your local bakery.
In addition to brunch appropriate finger food, you can include a wide assortment of bubble shaped foods, like grapes, blueberries, donut holes, and Danish pancakes — which look like pancake holes (check your local Trader Joe’s). DIY the balloon cupcake toppers for an extra “pop” on the table. For the adults offer some bubbly drinks to accompany a variety of juices, including peach, pear, and orange. We used paper lanterns and balloons to continue with the bubble theme in the decor.
Guests left the party with their own bottle of bubbles, a wand, a rubber ducky for bubble bath fun at home, and a few pieces of double bubble gum.
