brittany's "POP" baby shower

I helped throw Brittany a baby shower last weekend and it was so fun! The theme was "POP."

My fabulous friend Jordan from kojodesigns did the invites. How cute are those?!
All the hostesses came over the night before and we got everything set up for the shower. The pre-party set up is my favorite part of a party.  It's so fun staying up late getting the vision to come to life!

Jordan made all the signs, labels and banners and gave us all a tutorial on how to make pom-pom balls. We made a ton and hung them from the ceiling with fishing line. I loved the way this looked, I will definitely be making these again and again for future parties.

I was in charge of the popcorn bar. Brittany is a huge popcorn lover so I knew we had to have the best popcorn and I knew just where to get it! My sister in law Aly introduced me to this fantastic little candy/popcorn store in Dallas. They have every flavor and color of popcorn you can imagine! The store is called Candy Corn's. Their website isn't up yet but they were wonderful to work with over the phone and they sent me all the popcorn in the mail. We had Jalapeno Ranch (the best by far!), Apple, Butter, Coconut, and Parmesan popcorn. We made cones out of card stock to hold the popcorn. So fun!

All the food at the shower was all things that popped. We had jalapeno poppers, blow pops, pop rocks, soda pop candy, bubble gum, rice crispy treats, homemade pop tarts and cake pops.

We had cards for the guests to fill out for baby Cooper. Each card said something different on them. It was kinda like a fill in the blank. Example, "I hope you love..., I hope you aren't afaird..., I hope you laugh..."

Brittany is just the cutest pregnant girl ever and she got some good stuff for baby Cooper. Such a fun shower! Thanks for everyone that came and helped with the shower and thanks so much Jordan for taking such great pics!

Where did you have all the tags printed? We are doing a food shower for a friend who is having baby #5. The theme is still "She's ready to Pop" but everyone is bringing pre made meals to freeze instead of traditional baby gifts.
Anyway, I love your post!!!
Let me know ASAP. Thanks.
