My new favorite baby is due on February 9th. Her parents, Nic & Erica, just happen to be our best friends. This is their first baby and they are going to be such amazing parents! We are 1 month and 3 days away from the arrive of their new nugget and just less than a month ago Erica had her baby shower.
Erica’s shower was themed:
Erica is About to POP!
We decorated with balloons and popcorn bags, and served popcorn, cake pops, snap-crackle-POP rice crispy treats, and popcorn-themed cupcakes! We also had veggies, croissant sandwiches, and fruit bowls.
The day before the shower we met at Erica’s parents’ house to organize the decorations and make the snacks. Between her mom, aunts, cousins, and friends, Erica & Nic have an incredible support system.
Erica and I slaved over cake pops (which we gave out as favors), but the most tedious task was the popcorn cupcakes.
We cut the marshmallows, stuck them to the cupcakes with icing, and then sprayed an edible yellow coloring over the finished products.
We played three games before eating. The first game was a memorization game with a tray of baby objects. The second game was a POP Quiz about Erica, Nic, and pregnancy in general. The last game was a word scramble.
I didn’t get a picture of the trophies, but they were based on these Pinterest beauties:
It was such a fun day and the new parents got so many adorable outfits and useful items!
I am SO excited to meet their baby girl! Congratulations, Nic & Erica!
