On Saturday we celebrated Maxton’s third birthday, with a Bubble Guppies themed party (he doesn’t actually turn three until the 24th). Bubble Guppies is probably his favourite TV show, and has been for a while so I figured it would be something he would enjoy.
I see this TV show multiple times a day, so I had a pretty good idea on what I wanted to do and the colours I wanted to stick with.
You will have to excuse the picture quality. I was racing around minutes before all the little guppies arrived, and wasn’t paying much attention to the settings nor did I do a great job at centering the photos.
The party was supposed to be outside, but just like last year for his party, it poured rain. It had been threatening rain all week, and it literally started to pour five minutes before his party started.
The Bubble Guppies characters I purchased from Party City. They actually came in six, 6ft strands, but I thought I would get creative and tape them through the streamers to make it look like they were swimming in water.
The sign I made myself from scrapbook paper from Michaels. I love making the signs, it is so much more fun than just buying one.
The plates, napkins and orange paper straws I purchased from Dollarama, with the exception of the Bubble Guppies plates; they were from Party City.
It was fun coming up with funny little names for the food – makes it that much more fun.
The cupcakes I made myself, and the cupcake toppers I also did myself. I printed them off of the Nickelodeon Junior website, cut them out, and taped them to the back of toothpicks.
The cake I had made by “Not A Cupcake“. She did an amazing job and only charged $35. Most importantly, Maxton loved it, and it tasted delicious!
He was so excited to blow out the candle!
So serious – he loved his piece of cake though!
Overall, despite the fact that we had to cram 40+ adults and kids into our house, it turned out great and Maxton had a blast.
I hope my little guy enjoyed his Bubble Guppies party. I still can’t believe he’s almost three…
