Baby Shower (No, Not My Own)!!!

I had the pleasure of helping host a baby shower for my friend, Mindi, who is having a little girl, Emma Grace, soon! She is due early September and we're all very excited for her and her husband, Jonathan, for this little miracle. Mindi has a ton of friends, so I had a LOT of help from them [Shout out to: Nicole, Bryttani, Holly, Erin, Mandy, Shelly, Sidney, Kayla, Kari, Alyssa, Mrs. Brinkley, all family members who helped set up/take down decorations; please forgive me if I forgot someone... I blame it on pregnancy brain!].

The theme of the baby shower was: Ready to POP! The invitation had the theme and so did the decorations! I took lots of pictures and will share some with you all, with the warning that the quality isn't the best in most of them.

The Entrance; the sign was really cute with pink and brown but you can't see all the details of it from this picture.

On the table: lolliPOPs, ringPOPs, About to POP notepads in the shape of a pregnant woman, party poppers, It's a girl! confetti, super cute maternity photos of the mom-to-be and dad-to-be, and super cute advice/well-wishes cards for guests to sign.

The cute advice/well-wish cards and directions for guests.

Super cute (and very tasty) Rick's cake Mrs. Brinkley brought to the shower.

Very yummy buffalo chicken dip and pink rice krispie treats (you know, snap, crackle, POP?).

Almond bark covered POPcorn, fruit, veggies, chips, and POPtarts!

Poppycock, some bacon covered pineapple treats, chicken salad sandwiches, etc.

Cute plates, napkins and forks, thanks to Bryttani J.!

Table decorations, the confetti says It's a Girl! and EMMA (baby's name), lolliPOPs and lolliPOP bouquets (as centerpieces), and the About to Pop! notepads.

People hung their advice cards on the pink and brown polka dot ribbon with clothespins... how cute is that?!

Group pic!

Hostesses and mom-to-be!

All the pregnant girls. I'm the second farthest along in this group, believe it or not (27 weeks today)!

All in all, I think Mindi enjoyed the shower and, thus, it was a success!
