About to Pop Baby Shower Theme Ideas
Anyone who has been nine months pregnant knows the feeling – "I surely can’t get any bigger", you say to yourself. But, yes, your belly will continue to grow and your ribcage will continue to expand! So why not celebrate with an 'About to Pop' baby shower?
In sympathy with all pregnant women out there, Pink Frosting has some fun suggestions to make your 'About to Pop' baby shower a huge success.
Invitations and stationery
Set the scene for baby shower with invitations made to look like movie tickets. Try making your own "Admit One" tickets - and for added oomph, tie each to a popcorn box. Red and white popcorn boxes will make a real statement about the shower. Make sure all of your stationery, party invitations, envelopes and decorations are in white and red, to tie the theme together.
Decorate your room in red and white. Use red and white check tablecloths and napkins, together with red and white balloons, platters and crockery. Create a fun centrepiece using helium-filled balloons in red and white, strung with red and white striped ribbon, and held into place with a weight which sits inside a popcorn box. Fill around the weight (like you would a pot plant) with popcorn which spills out onto the table.
Menu and catering
In a word: popcorn! There are so many fun popcorn-themed dishes to serve. Present a range of savory and sweet-flavoured popcorn in large white and red ceramic bowls. Try new and interesting flavours such as cheesy popcorn, caramel with macadamia nuts, and rocky road popcorn (with flecks of cherry, chocolate and marshmallow) served as dessert in a milk chocolate bowl. Indulgent and yummy! To balance these flavours, serve mouth-watering mocktails of fresh juice and spritzer to keep your guests happy.
Set the party goes off with a bang with Pink Frosting's baby shower game kit – it’s full of fun games and activities to get the party going! Each kit includes five games for 12 guests, including shower gift bingo, baby care charades and baby words game.
Celebrate your size! Before you pop, create a perfect cast of your pregnant belly as an enduring keepsake. Your guests can help decorate the cast with their well-wishes.
Gifts and Favours
Make the mum-to-bee laugh with the About to Hatch egg timer. The egg-shaped timer twists at the bottom to countdown any interval of time from one minute to 60 minutes. She can take it to the hospital with her to count down contractions!
For a fun-filled favour, hand out About to Pop popcorn boxes. Each features a red silhouette of a mum-to-be with the words 'About to Pop' on her belly! Just fill them with a sweet treat or, to truly make it authentic, why not fill them with real popcorn kernels so guests can pop a bowl of popcorn at home.
