Earlier this month, I was able to have a small baby shower in my hometown. This year has been so crazy, I honestly wasn’t sure if I would be able to have a baby shower. I’m so lucky to be surrounded by incredible women who got this shower together for me, pretty last minute and I wanted to share all the fun details! Our ‘Ready to Pop’ theme is the perfect Summer Baby Shower idea whether it’s a boy or girl.
I loved the Ready to Pop theme for a Summer Baby Shower so much. It was fun, whimsical and playful. If you’re a host, you’ll love it too. There are tons of fun ways to go with this theme. While you could just stick to popsicles, you can also add in ice cream, too (like we did!). Plus, anything fun and colorful fits right into this theme.
I rounded up some of the fun pieces from my shower + other things that are adorable for your very own! It doesn’t take much to make this vision come to life, but I do recommend a helium tank and an electric air tank. The helium tank is great for inflating balloons you want to float, while the electric airtank will SAVE you when making things like a balloon arch. I’m linking the exact balloons we used for our arch below and I have a full balloon arch tutorial as well!
SHOP READY TO POP FAVES:
2. Gold Letter Balloons (we did MAMA)
4. Gold Glitter Champange Coupes (put popsicles in your champagne!)
A few other fun touches to keep in mind. Pick up some flowers from Whole Foods, Publix or ask a local florist if she has some stems you can purchase (Fox and Fern is great if you’re local to Chattanooga). Arranging them yourself is a great way to save money + is a lot of fun! A cake is always a great centerpiece, but for a party like this you could opt for a dessert like an Ice Cream Bar with DIY toppings for another budget friendly, yet adorable option. We pulled candelabras from other parts of the house and always check out Target Dollar Spot for fun decor that is usually under $5!
What do you think of our Ready to Pop Summer Baby Shower? If you host one, be sure to tag me so I can see the photos. The countdown to our little nugget is on and we are so excited! As I’m writing this, we have about 50 days left. Check out more photos from our special day below and shop my non-maternity dress as well!
