“Once my girlfriend shared the news she was expecting her second little baby, I immediately contacted our mutual friend Jen and we started planning a little sprinkle that centered around the expectant mama’s love of popcorn!Party Theme:We centered the party around the popcorn, but also wanted to include some other food options that also were “pop-related”. I designed the invitations to be a softer take on the “ready to pop” theme, with delicate transparent bubbles floating from the bottom of the invite to the top, and across the back. This pattern was used in all the paper printables, and carried through to the favor bags.Food + Decor:Tissue poms floated over the food and drink table, with the three different blends of popcorn taking center stage. We served a Spicy Caramel, Kettle Corn and a Savory Blend from a local restaurant with kale, corn pops and sea salt. Plus, we included other “pop-related” food items like Cheesy Popovers, Chocolate Cake Pops and yummy Kettle Popcorn Cookies. For the beverages, we popped some bubbly with a Rose Sparkling Wine and Italian Soda Pop, Sparkling Water, Red and White Wine.Favors:Since the shower was kept to an intimate group of 12 we were able to put together some special favor bags for each guest. The favor bags were tied with coordinating colored balloons, and contained a mini bottle of Champagne to pop open on 02.29.12 (baby’s due date), gumballs, Pop Rocks, Kettle Popcorn and Cake Pops. I designed special packaging for each item in the bag, which coordinating with the invitation and other signage.”
