Under The Sea with Bubble Truck

Every other month my friends and I have a theme party. With summer coming up, a theme related to the ocean sounded like a perfect opportunity to have fun while in the heat.

Driving into our neighborhood that night, no one would ever guess that one of these suburban homes was transformed into the bottom of the ocean. When walking in, instantly it felt like you entered an underwater disco ball.

Surrounded by blue shimmers on every wall, the living room had colorful fishes swimming throughout their coral reefs on the television, while the ceiling had blue and green lights moving like waves.

Once guests started coming in, our ocean home now had marine life in every corner. That night we could say we had a squid sharing a drink with a hammerhead shark in the kitchen, a shrimp laughing with a clam in the hallway and other ocean creatures dancing in the living room. The only thing missing was bubbles.

Just when every exotic fish thought the night couldn’t get any more fun, Jacksonville’s Bubble Truck arrived at 11 p.m. Emily, the driver, was greeted by a mermaid with a thick red beard, but once everyone knew the truck had arrived, more underwater creatures approached.

“I have never seen anything like it,” said Emily. “I knew I was going to enjoy this night even more.” With our already prepared ocean theme playlist, all our host had to do was turn on the bubble machine. Within 10 seconds, a once normal driveway was filled with bubbles. For an hour, adults were children again, running, hiding and jumping out at friends. It was an experience everyone needs to have at least once.

Considering the hour, only late-night passersby would be able to tell their friends they saw a lobster, a jellyfish and a sea urchin dancing to Princess Ariel’s melody, “Part of Your World” in someone’s front yard.

“Being a shark in bubbles for a night… I’ll never forget that,” said Dylan Waters. Jacksonville’s Bubble Truck was the perfect addition to our ocean-themed night. With many options to choose from, we chose the Glow Foam Bash so our costumes could glow in the bubbles.

“We thought of a theme and went above and beyond for it,” said party co-host and mermaid for the night Andrew Terry. “We want to enjoy this life, and we’re the type of friends to pitch in together and make memories. So ecstatic that the Bubble Truck is even a thing here.”

No matter the season, creativity can shine and make the best memories. In this life, if you surround yourself with the right people, life goes swimmingly.
