She's Ready to Pop Baby Shower

We did a baby shower for one of the girls Laura Belk, back in October.  Melissa and I hosted the shower at my apartment, and Penny provided the theme, "She's Ready to Pop."  We wanted to incorporate the idea of a Girl's Night Out, so that we could get together and relax.  I got inspiration from here and here.  I liked the colors of blues and greens since she was having a boy, and I even used the same invitations.

We had a delicious Popcorn Bar!

We used the idea of air-popped, with butter topping, and a variety of seasonings.

Some of the different popcorn toppings

We had a few premade sweet popcorns to accompany to savory toppings:

 Penny made some Cake Pops that were delicious

 We also had a variety of toppings to add to the popcorn: 
Reese's Pieces, Peanuts, M&Ms, Candy Corn and Raisins.

 We also had a drink station, that included a beverage dispenser with water,
and a variety of soda.

We had each guest bring a decorated onesie to the party, along with a gift.  Then we made a game of having Laura guess which onesie corresponded to each guest.

My friend Nancy was in charge of the games, and they were a lot of fun.  We guessed how many candies were in a jar, as well as played the string game where we cut off a string the length that we thought was the circumference of Laura's belly.  The game that was perhaps the most fun was when we played Hot Potato with a diaper wrapped full of Whoppers.  We had so much fun the diaper became unwrapped during the process, and I found several Whoppers a few days later.


  1. Lovely share! Annual function evening spent with kids arranged by my son's school management was rocking. Liked the big party venue with nice stage set up. Welcome ideas were nice and refreshments with beverages were serves every now and then. Cheered all the kids on their eye catching performances.
