Toddlers and bubbles go together like peanut butter and jelly!  The popular activity inspired this bubble themed first birthday party planned and photographed by Julie Verville, of Crowing Details, for a set of twin boys.  With loads of bubble-inspired decorations, activities and desserts, this party is sure to make you smile!

To satisfy guests, a variety of breakfast items were served including:  mini muffins, mini donut holes and bright blue Jell-O cups. Orange and white polka dotted party cups were filled to the brim with grapes and blueberries—a nice healthy alternative to balance out the sugar. To bring in fun pops of color, blue and white gift wrap made an economical table runner and balloon bouquets anchored the ends of the table.

I love how Julie carried the bubble inspired bunting idea to each boy’s highchair, spelling out their names on big bubble circles. Balloon clusters in coordinating colors added to the festivity.
