Ready To Pop Themed Baby Shower Fun

I've been a little MIA on the paper crafting front lately but for good reason. I have an amazing friend who is due in just a few short weeks. She's one of my bestest workout buddies and makes me feel awful when she runs faster than I do even being 8 months pregnant!!! :)
So I put together a little baby shower with the Ready To Pop theme and it was really fun. 
I tried to come up with as many foods that had "POP" in their names as I could. We ended up having
Homemade Kettle POPCORN
Hand Dipped Chocolate Marshmallow POPS
Green Chile POPOVERS (thank you Renee)
and Tropical POPICAL Punch (hahaha, I just made that one up)
The goody table
This is the full set up.
I made Peanut Butter Chocolate Twist Cup Cakes. They were so yummy. Compared to other recipes I've seen it's pretty simple and easy to follow. So much better than boxed cupcakes.

There's the soon to be mama and her little guy. So sweet.

Those popovers were really delicious. I put out little bags for people to scoop popcorn into.
The children at the shower enjoyed the chocolate marshmallow pops the most. :)

The table runner was fun and easy to make. Just stack 7 or 8 tissue flowers together, staple in the center and then fluff.
 

I couldn't find any cups that matched my theme so I just picked out three coordinating washi tapes and ran them along the bottom of simple plastic cups. Easy fix and cute too.
 

You can find the recipe for these delicious cupcakes at BHG here...the only thing I didn't do was add chocolate to the icing and swirl peanut butter and chocolate icing. Still perfect ;).
Simple decorated chalk board.
I had a lot of fun putting this together and I can't wait to meet the little man!!
Have a super weekend.

All very beautiful Misty. Inspired, as always, to start really getting down to the nitty gritty of first birthday decor (x3!). We're decorating in blue, yellow & coral so this was perfect!
