These pictures have me bubbling over with joy, feeling all warm and bubbly inside… you get the picture. ;) In a nutshell, this party is seriously cute. AND approachable! Janice Carnevale of Bellwether Events is at it again for baby Scarlett; she brought a simple theme to life in such a fun way for this Bubbles & Brunch 2nd Birthday Party. I absolutely adore the balloon topped cupcakes and the backyard setting… and look at how happy the sweet birthday girl looks! Is there really anything better?
PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:
– Fabulous “Pop On In” Balloon Door “wreath”
– Round (bubble inspired) Snacks: grapes, donut holes, Danish Pancakes, Bagels & more
– Darling DIY Balloon Cupcake Toppers & Felt Hat for the Birthday Girl
– Every little one’s dream: a Homemade Bubble Pit!
PARTY DETAILS, as told by Janice…
Some of you may remember Scarlett’s first birthday party that was featured on HWTM last year! We are back with a just-as-fun party this year for her second birthday! Since Scarlett and her dad Brett are both super into bubbles, mom Terra and I thought a brunch and bubbles birthday party would be the way to go! The tag line was Pop On Over for Bubbles and Brunch — Scarlett is Turning Two!
Parents Terra and Brett love to host their friends and family at their home. Luckily the weather was mild this year and we were able to spread out all over the yard. The backyard was filled with anything and everything related to bubbles. We had a bubble machine, 3 different bubble stations with varying sized wands, a “bubble pit” — aka a pool filled with bubbles (OK they were really clear beach balls, you got me) and a bubble wrap popping station for the kids to jump on. We also had a coloring station with sheets of bubble designs to color.
In addition to brunch appropriate finger food, we included 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). We DIYed the balloon cupcake toppers for an extra “pop” on the table. For the adults we offered 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.
