Whether you’re planning your own baby shower or helping out a friend, it’s such a special and fun time. Baby showers are the perfect way to relax with your friends and family while awaiting the arrival of your bundle of joy. And there really is no cuter baby shower theme than a ‘ready to pop’ party. It’s fun, versatile and really easy to plan. You’re going to love this baby shower theme… we pinky promise!

So, when it comes to the theme ‘ready to pop’, the first thing that comes to mind is of course, popcorn! Super cheap and yummy – this is a great way to feed a lot of people. We love the idea of setting up a popcorn bar, where guests can tailor make their own popcorn flavour varieties. Sweet, salty, spicy… and everything in between. Don’t forget some yummy add-ins too (umm… did someone say M&Ms?).

Next up is the all important cake pops. No ‘ready to pop’ baby shower would be complete without them! We love cake pops because they’re easy to eat, small enough to serve as ‘finger food’ and you can go as crazy as you like with different flavours.


Add a ‘pop’ of milk to your chocolate chip cookies for a yummy and super sweet treat. Use small shot glasses or buy plastic ones from your local party store.
