No doubt about it –by the end of nine months, any mama-to-be feels like she’s ready to burst. Help her forget the uncomfortable feelings (at least for a little while) with this adorable ‘Ready to Pop’ themed baby shower! This theme lends itself to both genders as well as gender-neutral showers. From food and drink to tongue-in-cheek décor, there are countless ways to carry out this theme!

Invitations
An easy and inexpensive way to kick off the theme is with the invites. Tie a balloon to the paper and use the same color scheme as the decorations for the event.

Food
Luckily, “pop” is an easy word to tie in to a catchy phrase or label, one of the easiest being food. Of course there’s the obvious – popcorn.

And cake pops! Equally sweet in pink, blue or shower-themed colors.

Many of Tori and Stella's friends came to share in the fun and Dean treated the kids with rice krispy treats dipped in liquid nitrogen which made fog pour out of their mouths.

Games
While guests munch – or even just mingle – have them take your own version of a “pop” quiz. Include funny questions about things like cravings or baby names.

Or take bets and create a pool where guests can choose the date and time they think the little one will enter the world.

Favors
Thank guests for “popping in” with a sweet mini champagne (save a few for mommy post-delivery!)

Or an indulgent bubble bath – bubbles do “pop” after all!
