I'm pretty sure the second Jessica told us that Holland was on her way, my sister Laura, and our two close sister friends, Ellen & Cindy, called dibs on throwing Jessica the best baby shower we possibly could.
During a ladies who lunch day along the coast, we clinked our brains together (and maybe a glass of wine too) and brainstormed the best way to shower Jessica and new baby Holland with lots and lots of love.
Somehow, a She's Ready to Pop theme came up, and the ball started rolling and never stopped.
I'm talking popcorn, soda pop, pop rocks, & push up cake pops.
Ellen did a ton of work executing the theme, including bright pinks and greens, and she even made the gorgeous crepe paper puffs, bunting, signs and banners. Girl is a genius with scissors.
Cindy hooked it up with all the matching plates, cups, tablecloths, cutlery and balloons.
Cindy's cute friend Deanna flew in for the weekend and was our official baker and balloon carrier.
My sister provided tons of soda pop, fresh fruit, veggies and coffee.
And Ellen whipped up three types of popcorn!
Umm...I bought pop rocks. And Ellen cuted them up for me while I was being a slacker in Hawaii. Thanks Ellen.
I think our guests enjoyed it all.
Most importantly, Jessica, I hope you felt loved, showered, and prayed over as much as you have done the same for the rest of us.
We love you, and we love Holland Joy too. Can't wait to see her cute, squishy face!
I have a feeling she is gonna be very POP-ular.
