You will love thIS READY TO POP baby shower THEME! with A popcorn TOPPING BAR, a soda pop bar, balloons and a FREE POSTER you can print TO DECORATE WITH!
Have you guys seen the ‘Ready to Pop’ baby shower theme before? I have always thought it was such a great idea – especially because when I was pregnant I literally felt like I was ready to pop… haha. It’s just so fitting. Plus, there are so many creative things you can do with this theme! Once I got going with the balloons as decorations, the popcorn and the soda pop, it all just fell into place.
BABY SHOWER FOOD – POPCORN TOPPING BAR
For this shower I knew I wanted to implement my party popcorn topping bar – it’s kind of my favorite since I’m such a popcorn fanatic anyway.
SODA POP BAR
For drinks, I gathered up a bunch of old fashioned “soda pop” flavors. I went to three different stores to get these (overboard, I know!) But they are so fun, and I’m glad I did it! No regrets.
READY TO POP BABY SHOWER DECOR
I made the poster that says “Ready to Pop” and if you want to print one of these babies for yourself you can do so! Just download the file and save the file to your computer. This poster is sized to 24×36 (2 feet tall and 3 feet long.) I had mine printed at FedEx Office. This is important – it’s really cheap, like $4.50 at my store, IF you make sure to specify that you want it printed in black. The default is Full Color – but since this is in fact a black and white poster, you shouldn’t pay for full color.
The last detail is this balloon garland! You guys, these are way easier to make than you might think! See the full tutorial HERE.

All of these details just go together and everyone loved the popcorn bar and sodas! (I mean, who wouldn’t?)

Oh my goodness I definitely should have included that info! So sorry – I printed it 24×36!
How did you ensure that it wasn’t blurry when you selected that size? I tried uploading the file to the staples website and noticed it became blurry/pixilated when I selected 24×36.

Hmm, I don’t know how to ensure that! I’m sorry! I use FedEx office to print things and the people at my local store are very good about making sure everything is high quality. Best of luck!

Hi! Can you tell me where you got the black/white striped table runner?
Jessica @ Pretty Providence
I can’t remember! I think it was at Target or Walmart but it was about 2 years ago. Sorry I can’t be more help!
Too cute!! I love that balloon backdrop!
