For sister's baby shower, I had found a cute "she's about the pop" theme. We had several kinds of popcorn, party favour bags had pop rocks, lollipops, etc. I could have pushed it more on the pop theme but I held back. I'm not much of a theme person and this was my first attempt at it. Always budget conscious I made all the decorations. I even attempted to make cupcakes (gotta learn how to ice properly...). All in all it was a lot of fun and a I had a great time DIYing the decorations!
For the "bubble" backdrop I bought paper and plastic plates from the dollar store, painted some of them, arranged them on poster board and hot glued them in place. All the little signs were printed off the computer and punched using various paper punches. I finally used up some old yellow ribbon that I've had for about 7 years! The banner was also printed off and then put together by yours truly. I am not a fan of taking a sharpie to put your name on a cup... so after I finally got all the RSVP's, I printed out labels and attached them to plastic cups which I think is a nice little personal touch. Just make sure you don't forget someone! =)
I like how the paper/plastic backdrop turned out. I especially like how inexpensive and easy it was to make!
