Abby fromStyle Me Prettyrecently created the most adorablefor her daughter Audreys first birthday! From pink balloons & cupcakes to pink margaritas for the adults, you can check out all the pink-a-licious detailsover at Cookie magazine.
Shes also generously offered to share theDIY tipsfor these adorableBubble Tin Favorswith us, so read on for all the how-to info, plus a downloadable template for the labels and a few more detail shots from the party!
•6 Tin Cans, found at Specialty Bottle
•Craft Sealant (such asLoctiteorAmazing Goop) for inside/base of canto help prevent leaking & rusting
•Pink Pipe Cleaners, found at Michaels
•Full Sheet Label Paper, found at Office Depot
1.Treat the inside of the cans with craft sealant to help prevent leaking or rusting.
(Note:This is anupdate to the instructionsas per December 2011 after seeing via the comments that some readers had trouble with leaky cans.)
2.Downloadand print out the template for the bubble labels and trim just under and above the pink lines (so that the lines show) and horizontally at the end of the pink lines.
3.Adhere to the tins using as light of a tough as possible so you dont leave fingerprints.
4.To create the pipe cleaner wands, shape the top of the wand into a circle, then twist the end around the handle.
5.Measure your raffia to about 18. Holding the pipe cleaner in place, wrap the raffia around the wand and the tin, tying in a bow at the front.
6.Fill the tins about 3/4 full with the bubble solution (can be found at party stores).
A few more party details are pictured below I just love the look of thesepink drinkswith the YUM! drink stirrers & pretty straws!

Where can I find that cute little cupcake dome tray?
absolutely adored the bubble tins and wands! gorgeously creative idea!
If you are referring to the glass cloche that that one cupcake is sitting under, you can get them here:
I got the glass dome at Pottery Barn:) xoxo
The cupcakes are gorgeous! Always looking for new decor for my cupcakes, I hope to use this one & tell everyone where I saw it first!
What a cute party! Love the bubble tins. 🙂
Those cupcakes are precious, and I love the bubble tinsthose might be a cool wedding favor??
Oh my goodness does it get any sweeter! I wouldnt change a thing; this is a wonderful party design/layout etc.! Love!
this is a cute pink party!! im curious to know what the water balloons were for?
I really wanted to have a balloon toss but my seven year old nephew couldnt contain his excitement and wanted to just throw them. So, I told the kids to have at it. They basically just threw them up in the air to watch them splatterthey loved every minute of it!
I love the water balloons. I love your site!
Unbelievable! What an inspiration. 🙂
the pink drserts abd marshmellow pops fab. great jdea
Darling! What great detailsit is killing mewhat is in the white goodie bags?
they look tasty and awesome. Pink color added makes it more beautiful
Love this!! Its my favourite so far! These are great ideas! The cupcakes are gorgeous!
What a cute party! Honestly, I would love to have had that for myself :).
So many adorable details 🙂 I would never have thought of making my own bubbles fun idea.
What a stunning party, I jsut love all these little details, the rose fairy cakes and the bubbles so sweet !
I really like how the buttercream was piped to look like roses on the cupcakes nice touch!
That looks like an awesome birthday party, with fabulous details. I love the water balloons and the beautiful cupcakes!
If anyone was curious the photography is from Paul and Krystal of Studio Foto. The party was a lot of fun and little Audrey LOVED the cupcakes:)
What did you do for invitations? Really Curious. THANKS
What did you put on table tablecloth or runner? And how did you print sign for water balloons and drink stirrers?
Pipe cleaner wandsbrilliant!! Thank you for sharing.
I love the homemade bubbles. They would be great for wedding favours. So much more unique than the typical small plastic bottle. The labels could be made with pictures of the bride and groom.
Does anyone know the balloons size??.Are they 36??Thank You
Do the pipe cleaners really work for the bubbles? I tried it and I cant seem to form the bubbles in the wandsolution just sticks to chenelle?
Yes the balloons are 36. Nona Im not sure about the pipe cleaners since I havent tried it myself, but Ill ask Abby about it for you. stay tuned!
I am making these favors for my daughters bday but I am worried because the pipes dont work, no bubbles are coming out. Am I doing something wrong?? Did anyone have this problem??
I am going to try and be a copycat! My question is, what was in the goodie bags??? AND, what other recommendations might you have on how to pull this off??
The goodie bags were filled with homemade chocolate chip cookies and you can get all the details on the rest of this party over at Cookie Magazine and Style Me Pretty here are the direct links:
Hi! Could i know how did u make pink drink? . they look amazing !!!

What a great party! I am planning my granddaughters first birthday and wondering where the swizzlers came from. Did you make them or can you tell me where I could order? Thank you for sharing your wonderful ideas.
Abby actually made the bubble wands herself using pink pipe cleaners 🙂
(See full tutorial near the bottom of the post for more details!)
Where did the pink YUM! sticks come from?
The stir sticks are a DIY project from Style Me Pretty! Heres the link:
Thank you for sharing, my little one turns one this september and I plan on using some of your great ideas!! Just beautifulwould you be able to share what time of day you had your party and what else you served your guests as way of food? I cant get the story from Cookie anymore, as its been awhile..thank you!
Love the pictures so bright and tasty 🙂
Adorable! Love the drinks, cupcakes, and bubbles!
*sigh* Ladies, I have something to say about the tins. I followed the instructions, bought the same tins and made my own bubble solution BTW the pipe cleaners worked perfectly when you use a strong homemade solution (I chose one from the internet and got big bubbles, a lot of fun!).
However the tins LEAK. I filled then up the night before my sons first birthday and left them on the console table together with my other favors CDs in a nice red envelope. The morning after, the horror! 19 of the 20 evelopes were soaked and destroyed, I managed to save one and took a picture of it. I was so upset because I had no idea the tins were not water tight. Please, comment that on the post. After what happened my husband said that we could have used wax, or something like this to make it water tight, but it was too late for us. You can see my pictures at look awesome, but I couldnt give out the soap bubbles to the kids or the cds to the adults.. The idea is beautiful though, just make sure you test it before! Luciana Svilpa

DO NOT BUY TINS FROM SPECIALTY BOTTLES for this purpose!!!! 75% of the tins are leaking and rusting 3 days after putting the bubble solution in! My client had me recreate these for her wedding and it is an expensive disaster if you use these tins. The company is NOT working with me on expediting new tins. They wont be here in time.
The party turned out awesome! If I can ask a question, the tin cans that you used for the bubbles, I went on the website and can not find them. Can You help me??? Thanks so much!
Hi Jennifer Looks like the link is different on the site for some reason, so I just updated it in the post. You can find them here:6 Tin Cans
Also Im just now seeing that some people are having trouble with these cans leaking, so Id suggest trying to add some silicone craft sealant to the inside and base of the cans before filling them with bubble solution. Since this was a guest DIY feature I havent tried them out myself, but after reading some of the comments I think Ill order some and test them out with the silicone sealant too! Here are a couple options I found online, but Im sure they carry them at craft stores too:Eclectic Amazing Goopor Loctite Clear Silicone Sealant
Thank you SO much for replying back to me! I SO appreciate your time responding to me! Thanks again!
 keep the kids busy, we had bubbles out (inspiration) and gave everyone goodie bags with toys inside! The goodie bags were simple white bags from

I love this and I plan to make them for my daughters birthday. I tried downloading the label template and it opens as an Adobe read only file and I cant customize it. Is there any way I could get the template so that I can customize it with our party info? I do have photoshop. If you need my info so you can make it and then send me the read only file, Im totally cool with that. I understand the need to keep your own creations in-house. Thanks for your help!
Since Style Me Pretty originally created these labels, we only have access to the PDF file that you downloaded and not the original native file. However, you should be able to open pdfs in photoshop and type over certain elements in new layers, so you might try customizing them that way. Sorry I cant be of more help!
 you could totally customize them to fit your own wedding theme. Instructions available at Hostess with the Mostess. Image courtesy of Hostess with the Mostess Posted inInspire Me Bride- Bridal

 How precious are these party favors! Genie packaged bubble solution into tea tin containers, wrapped each tin in scrapbooking paper, then added free printable circles that I designed. The bubbles card is also a free printable its available at Hostess with the Mostess. 
So pretty! It makes me want to host (or attend) a pink party 🙂
 guests will really love? BUBBLES! I got this idea from Abby Larson of Style Me Pretty. See her feature on Hostess With The Mostess here where she created these bubble favors for her daughters birthday party one year. I

 I always say, use what you have and Kristen already owned a collection of red outdoor partyware, so she decided that red had to be incorporated into this party. The whale inspiration came from a Pottery Barn Kids bedding collection. The stripe, gingham and polka dot patterns were inspired by pennant bunting from Etsy. Many other details were found on Pinterest! (For example, the homemade bubble containers that were originally posted by Hostess with the Mostess here.)

Hi! May I ask where you got the tin cans for the bubbles thats displayed in the picture? I ordered the tin cans from the Specialty bottle link that you provided. I was aware they were 6 inches but when they arrived, the cans were much bigger than I expected for what was shown in the pictures.
