She's About to Pop Baby Shower

This is the baby shower that I threw for my long-time dear friend Michelle and her sweet baby girl. She's about to pop was a fun theme to work with. Michelle is gluten popcorn is something she can eat with no worries! I tried to incorporate foods that had "POP" in then somehow, someway. Like Soda POP, loliPOPS, POP rocks, POPcorn, etc. I also made one batch of regular cupcakes and one batch of gluten free cupcakes. Both were yummy!

Here is the invitation:


Some of the details.....
cupcake toppers

favor bags filled with pop rocks & ring pops

the little signs I made so people knew what they were eating...AND to emphasize the POP factor!

handcrafted fabric and ribbon banner draped in front of the refreshment table

my jazzed up light fixture was a fun addition and really added a POP of color to the room

(ok, looking back I should've ironed the ribbon...but who has the time!!!)

me and my guest of honor

the lollipop topiary that served as the food table centerpiece

pink popcorn balls

  1. Even though I can't say I've ever actually been invited to a baby shower! (do they even invite men?) I must say that if I were invited, I can't imagine a better looking invitation. I love it!
