My sister and I decided to have a joint baby shower for two reasons
1. It would save our parents a ton of money and
2. with both of us living so far from “home” and only 4 weeks apart in pregnancy, it didn’t make sense to have two separate ones.
That was the easy part.
The most difficult part was choosing a theme and then coordinating everything to go along. We eventually narrowed it down to “Mommy to BEE” (a bumblebee theme) and “Ready to POP”, both of which we found a ton of stuff on Pinterest. We ended up going with the POP theme because my sister is already a mom, so it worked better for us. We changed the wording to “Going to POP” because I would only be 23 weeks and she would be 27 weeks at the shower (we aren’t quite “ready” yet).
Unfortunately, running around, I didn’t get to take pictures of everything, but I will try my best over the next few weeks to get some more pictures and also recipes for all of the wonderful dishes we had.
We had customized stickers made from Vistaprint that went on our LolliPOP tree, as well as tied around our favors. We used Bubbles as our favor (one of the thing I don’t have a picture of).
We also made a LolliPOP tree using tootsie pops and blow pops.
We also had Oreo Dipped Chocolate POPs that I wasn’t able to get a picture of yet.Lastly, we had a small popcorn bar. I blogged about making these adorable scrapbook popcorn cones a few weeks ago and it was a success with the kids!
