If I haven't said it enough, I'm always on the lookout for original party ideas. Plus, I couldn't just lump this in with yesterday's Fiesta Friday, it needed its own post.
Anyone who has been nine months pregnant knows the feeling; you keep thinking it's not physically possible to get any bigger, but you will! So here's a great baby shower theme - About to Pop! Plus, you can find lots of these supplies on sale this time of year, after Valentine's Day and Oscar season.
Get The Party Started
Adapt this Valentine idea into an invitation by replacing the wording with party info.
Setting The Scene
Decorate the party area in red and white. Create a fun centerpiece using helium filled balloons in red and white, strung with red and white striped ribbon, held into place with a weight which sits inside a popcorn box. Fill up the popcorn box with popcorn that spills out onto the table.
Duh! Popcorn! Set up a popcorn buffet and serve plenty of savory flavoured and sweet flavoured popcorn in great big white and red ceramic bowls. Try Dale and Thomas's gourmet popcorn who carry exotic flavors like Peanut Butter and White Chocolate Drizzlecorn, Veneto (smoked Provolla cheese accented with lightly toasted onions sprinkled with parsley and sea salt) and Frosted Gingerbread.
Personalize each glass container with a ribbon and tag with the featured popcorn written either by hand or using a computer font.
Channel your inner Martha with popcorn cupcakes.
Send Them Home With a Smile
Of course, you must pass out these popcorn favors from My Wedding Favors. A more cost effective method; purchase your own popcorn bags and fill with white and yellow Jelly Bellys or other candies.
