Planning a big celebration for my kids each year is one of my favorite pastimes! We love an excuse to celebrate and there is no better reason than a birthday. I am always filled with so many emotions as their birthdays approach, but this year I was overcome with emotion. This past year went by so quickly! It felt much quicker than Jonah’s second year, I guess because everything was just that much busier with two kids! Addison’s second birthday was here before I knew it, and while I usually start planning far in advance, time got away from me this year, so I planned an exciting Bubble Guppies party at home with all of her friends. The sun was shining and we couldn’t have asked for better weather!
It’s party time!
When each child arrived, I took a photo of them in front of the Bubble Guppies Scene Setter. I always love using the Scene Setters from PartyCity, as they always make the pictures look perfect! I added Caribbean Blue Metallic Floral Sheeting to give it a more enhanced look. The kids loved it and it added the perfect touch to the pictures!
Arts and crafts
I always like to make sure that there are enough activities for the kids, especially since kids always come to parties with their siblings! My motto is, ‘the more, the merrier,’ but if I’m welcoming all, then I want the party to have enough variety for everyone! I created a craft for the children by purchasing under the sea stickers and white square paper frames at Michael’s. Before the party, I personalized the frames by writing ‘Addison’s 2nd Birthday’ on each frame. After the party, I sent the pictures of the children in front of the Bubble Guppies Scene Setter to all of the parents so that they could put the frame to good use! The children had fun at the art table decorating their pictures frames and were excited to take them home. We added magnetic tape to the back so that they could hang them on their fridge!
With all the fun, everyone worked up an appetite and while the food is important, the table must look good and carry out the theme! We adorned our table with the Bubble Guppies Table Decorating Kit, a Bubble Guppies Table Cover and Bubble Guppies Lunch Plates.
Let’s be honest… food makes the party! On the menu was a mix of delicious foods, but the hit of the party was the mac ‘n cheese for both the adults and the children! Homemade baked macaroni was even more delicious in the Bubble Guppies Treat Cups. These cups are perfect for every party and come in a variety of themes and colors. You can use them for desserts, side dishes, and even mains. They also come in handy when wrapping up loot bags!
With a bouncy castle and a little bit of music, Addison and her friends had the time of their lives! A bouncy castle is perfect for the little ones. Both Addison, age 2, and Jonah, age 4, just couldn’t get enough! This is a great way for the kids to get out all of their energy from the sugar being served at the party. to make it bouncy castle about more festive, I attached Bubble Swirl Decorations to the the top. The kids enjoyed watching then spin as they jumped!
Every party needs to end with a delicious treat in line with the theme. These homemade Bubble Guppies cupcakes were the icing on the cake! The cupcakes and the toppers were made at home — all you need is some colorful card stock, a paper press in the shape of your choice, and a printer to print out the Bubble Guppies. Cut, glue and assemble on lollipop sticks and you are ready to go! Each child chose their cupcake by their favorite character and enjoyed each and every bite.
We had a wonderful time celebrating Addison’s birthday with all of her friends and the Bubble Guppies.
