Ready to Pop


Lauren and Hailey and I threw a fun shower for Lindsey. One of us lives in Logan, one in Salt Lake City, and one in St. George…so we planned the whole thing long distance.  Thank heavens for pinterest private boards, texting, and email!


Hailey chose a “Ready to Pop” theme, and decided to do a shower in Lindsey’s nursery colors. Once we had that direction, we all took off with our assignments!  We had a great time putting together the menu and the decorations, and I loved the cute colors–mint and melon.


Hailey designed the chalkboards and made the cute onesie enhanced banner to drape in front of the fireplace.  They also brought Lindsey’s newly antinqued and glazed crib up to the family room, and used it to display many of her gifts!


Lauren made this cute balloon bouquet by wrapping individual balloons with tulle and tying them off with ribbons.  I thought they looked like giant lolly pops, which was perfect for the “Ready to Pop” theme.  I used mint, turquoise and melon printed fabric and ribbon to make a pennant banner which we strung all the way around the island where food was served.  I made some coordinating basket liners and table runners with left over fabric.


Look at the gorgeous quilt Hailey (and her MIL) made for Lindsey to match babies room.


Guests were encouraged to give the new “Mom and Pop” some parenting advice.


We had fun with the “POP” menu, too, which included Salad with POPpyseed dressing, POPovers with individual strawberry jams, Jalepeno POPpers, POPcorn Chicken with dipping sauces, and Soda POP.DSCN3411DSCN3434DSCN3409 DSCN3407 DSCN3402 DSCN3403

We picked up some delicious Popcorn from Roosters Gourmet Popcorn to make a yummy popcorn bar for people to snack on as we watched Lindsey open presents.

Guests were sent off with a delicious cake POPS, and younger guests filled up sacks of POP Rocks, LolliPOPS, Ring POPS, and all sorts of other..uh..POPular candies.
