a bubblegum party is my fave

August 7, 2013

Today’s post is from super crafter and cute mom, Amelia of The Homebook. This would have never worked in my house growing up since we had a strict no chewing rule but now I want every party to be bubblegum themed.

Oh, you know, just fulfilling all of my childhood dreams with this party theme. Am I the only kid who was obsessed with bubblegum? I asked for some at every checkout line, I’m sure of it. With a bag of Skittles on the side, please! I don’t know why I never thought to ask my mom for a bubblegum bash when I was younger, because creating this pink party was fun and easy.

Almost all of the supplies I used for the party were found at Target. All you need are a few packs of pink balloons to resemble blown up bubbles of gum (I used pink water balloons for the smaller balloons), and a whole lot of gum. I decorated the cake with bubblegum tape, and topped it with gumballs stuck onto wooden skewers. To add a bit of humor and keep the party from becoming overly pink and precious, I bought a few chattering teeth from my local party store and put them at each place setting with little blown up pink water balloon. These, along with a handful of gumballs, can double as party favors when your guests go home.

For place settings, I cut 4 inch pieces of bubblegum tape and stamped the names of my guests onto them using small letter stamps I had on hand (and found at Michaels a few months ago).

Now, go and throw your own bubblegum party, and make my candy-obsessed childhood dreams come true. And, while you’re at it, maybe make a dentist appointment– because when this party’s over, you’re sure to have a sore jaw. And probably a few cavities. Sorry!
