Since we met, my friend Allison and I have been wanting to throw a party together. Our friend circles don’t overlap very much, but we are both good friends with Brittany, a dear friend (who is also an amazing photographer!) and pregnant with their first little one. We knew as soon as she told us she was expecting that we would be throwing her a shower together.
Our shower theme- “She’s Ready to Pop!”
Menu: POP rocks, lolliPOPs, jalepeno POPpers, homemade POP tarts, soda POP candies, rice crispie treats (you know- snap, crackle and POP), ring POPS, tootsie POPS…
….and my personal favorite, a POPcorn bar.
decor: strands of balloons (cause they pop), loads of tissue ball pom poms (hung in clusters to resemble fireworks popping in the sky), “pop” labels (they were everywhere!) and a sign celebrating our little guest of honor- Cooper Ames
favors: bubbles in our shower colors. (yes, because bubbles POP!)
shower “game”: In lieu of a guest book, we printed cards with different things to “hope” for little Cooper (I hope you become, I hope you feel, I hope you never, I hope you always, etc.) and had guests fill out their hopes for the little man and sign their names. We displayed these wishes on ribbons in the entryway.
What a fun day celebrating this new life- can’t wait to meet him!
