I just had my 50th birthday and yes, I ended up helping my husband with the party. Since my birthday is in August and we have a pool, we of course planned on a backyard pool party. Naturally we had to have something fun for a 'party favor' so why not bubbles? Who doesn't like blowing bubbles?
It was easy enough to buy the bubbles through Amazon and/or Oriental Trading in exactly the color bottles needed to match our party 'colors.' We could have purchased labels pre-printed with my picture, name, etc. on them, but after reading the comments about them on Oriental Trading I figured it was easier to just make my own, and of course I was right! They were a little more expensive but I am really happy with the way they came out and that is all that matters since it was my birthday :-)
Directions:Create an account on Avery.com and design the label! Note that you need to test print on plain paper before printing on actual labels. I had to adjust several times before I was ready to print but Avery's program makes it very easy to adjust the printer so that they come out perfect! I actually designed the word-picture I used on a powerpoint slide and saved it as a jpeg file which I then simply inserted into the Avery program.
