Bubble Party Decoration Ideas
On the walkway to the party tape down sheets of
bubble wrap for guests to walk on. Hang different sizes of white
Styrofoam balls and / or rubber ducks from the trees with fishing line.
Set up a bubble machine right outside the party entrance to welcome the guests to the party. Cover the doorway to the party with bubble wrap.
Decorate with blue, white and clear balloons. For a fun effect you can tape different sizes of paper plates in white and blues to the walls to look like bubbles. Place glass or clear plastic vases filled with blue, white and clear marbles on the party tables. Or fill different sizes of clear containers with bubble gum balls or round candies. Use empty bubble bottles for a centerpiece by hot gluing them together.
Bubble Party Activities
Have an adult mix several colors of water based paint in different containers of bubble mixture. Give each guest a piece of thick art paper or a painters canvas. While the adult blows bubbles with the paint mixture the party guests can catch them on their paper. When the bubbles pop on the paper they make fun designs.
Variation: Buy white t-shirts for the guests and let them change into them before the bubble art. Instead of paper or canvas let the kids catch the bubbles on their shirts. Let the paint dry and spray with a fabric paint sealer before letting the kids take them home as party favors.
Fill a small kids pool full of bubble solution . Set out lots of different types of wands for the kids to make bubbles with such as bubble wands, wire hangers bent in a circle, small hula hoops, etc. Let the kids experiment with different sizes and shapes of bubble wands.
Have several adults of older children (or better yet a few bubble machines!) blow bubbles for the kids to pop. Let them pop them with their hands or give them different items to pop them with such as squirt guns or pool noodles.
Who's in the Bubble?
Fill a small kids pool with bubble solution at least 3" deep. Place a large hula hoop inside the pool. Inside the hula hoop place a step stool or sturdy item like a cement block for one child to stand on. Help the kids one by one to stand in the middle of the pool on the step stool. Have them bend down and pick up the hula hoop and slowly lift it over their head. The hula hoop will make a huge bubble that will enclose the child. Have a camera ready to take their picture!

Cut out food with circle cookie cutters such as Rice Krispie treats, brownies, sandwiches or fruit.
These cute bubble cupcakes are made
by spreading blue icing onto a cupcake and then placing round
balls made from fondant on top.
The key is to use different sizes of "bubbles" and make the placement random on top of the cupcakes.
These would look great stacked on a cupcake tower or on the party table.
