Trident Inspired: About to Pop Gender Reveal Baby Shower

Monday, September 24

Inspired by the updated + retro 70s vibe of Trident's new branding campaign.. 

( See What Unfolds )
I quickly got to work on it, and here it is! A Modern Trident Inspired About to Pop Baby Shower theme. 

I hope you enjoy this spur-of-the-moment styled shoot, and really hope it also helps to spark your creativity + urge to try something new at your next event.

I really wanted the table to look modern + bold, with a hint of retro. I commissioned the help of graphic designer + fellow party friend Keisha Silbert of Cupcake Wishes and Birthday Dreams to create a bold and very Andy Warhol-ian art poster and confetti popper. What's best the art poster can live on in the expecting couple's living room.  

To keep the modern vibe going I kept the layout clean without clutter. I used 2 tall black pillars in a mod style where I propped up 2 gender reveal cakes to eat depending on what the gender is (green if its a girl, orange if its a boy).
You can also have your baker add a girl or boy inspired trinket inside for a fun and unexpected surprise when they cut the cake.. 

The green shade of this Jone's "green apple soda" was the perfect shade and had the perfect image of a boy riding a dirt bike which I think went perfectly with the modern vibe.  

Using simple bubble containers, and hair twisty ties - I attached pipe cleaner wand. 

Male and Female Symbols on real slate slabs using chalk. 

On the other side of the table I added some bright orange + white lollipops, and confetti poppers that guests could hypothetically "unpop" to reveal the baby's gender. 

For the middle of the table, I decided to go with packets of Trident Layers Peach Mango since they are party of their new line of "dessert"  flavored gums. Other yummy kinds are:  Layers Wild Strawberry +
Tangy Citrus and Layers Juicy Berry + Tangy Tangerine.  
Since these are sweet vs. fresh I they make the perfect addition to a dessert buffet.  

I added a few more "pop" inspired items like popcorn, and pop tarts to keep the theme going.

Trident White is a great option for guests who want a refreshing "minty" kid of gum, that I served here simply in a white porcelain bowl with a hand dyed wooden spoon. 

 I also  made a "G" and "B" (for boy/girl) on each side of the table using regular Trident Gum, and could also be used to quickly decorate a cake with a name or a funky pattern...   

I added a few yellow, round, craspedia blooms since they looked so incredibly beautiful, + understated. 

To finish off the table, I added donuts pops with colorful picks, and yummy mango filled cupcakes with dulce de leche buttercream. 

So, what do you think .. is gum a practical dessert option? Do you have any other creative ways to use it? 
We'd love to hear! For more Trident inspired gum inspiration vis our pinboard.
