Bubble Guppies Birthday Party
Everybody line up! It’s time for Bubble Guppies!
My daughter turned two and is OBSESSED with the bubble guppies…or as she likes to call them: “Buppies”. I’ve never hosted a character party but knew I didn’t want to go down to the local party store and buy the off-the-rack party supplies. So designing the printables and using a blue and pink color scheme was the perfect solution for us. We didn’t go over-the-top with the characters…but used the colors and the idea of bubbles to help carry the theme through.
I’m definitely not a baker – the cake was a plain white cake from our local bakery that I decorated with “bubbles”. The topper is the one I used last year and can be used until she’s 21. (link) The cupcakes were bought with just plain white frosting too. 🙂
Party set up
The party was held outside – it was terribly windy so I had to set up below our windows. I used a pennant banner and then made 3 long “bubble” banners. I loved these and they were SO easy to make. I used 3 different papers and two different size paper punches and punched out a LOT of circles. Once they were punched out, I used my sewing machine and fed the circles through the machine. (As a side note: keep these banners laid flat. They tangle REALLY easily!)
We kept the food simple. Things that I knew the 2-year-old crowd would like: fish shaped pb&j’s, fish shaped rice krispy treats dipped in white chocolate, rock candy suckers, whale and goldfish crackers, and pirate’s booty.
The kids loved the little water bottle labels with the custom printables attached.
Adorable mini sugar cookies from Auntie Bea’s Bakery. She also made the favor cookies below.
My daughter’s outfit was purchased from two vendors. The tutu and shirt was from ebay. I searched for hours to find the perfect skirt at a good price and finally ended up with this set. The custom applique was from David Taylor Designs (whom I LOVE and have used MANY times in the last few years)! My son is wearing a shirt that I just happened to luck out and find 2nd hand…in his size! How lucky was that?
