Bubble Party

Shelbina Democrat, Missouri, December 19, 1888


One of the most amusing, as well as easily arranged entertainments for the Holidays, is a “Bubble Party.” Twenty or more ladies and gentlemen, enough clay pipes so each will have one, three or four bowls of soap-suds, and, say, half a dozen trifles, for prizes, are all that is required, the prized to be awarded to those who blow the largest bubbles, one of the party to act as referee.
