Our Pumpkin Themed Baby Shower
I love everything about Fall especially pumpkins. In the Fall, you can find me eating pumpkin ice cream, pumpkin dip, pumpkin cookies, and many other delicious pumpkin foods. When my best friend Megan found out about baby Frazier, she immediately brought up the idea of doing a pumpkin themed shower. Megan worked with a wonderful group of ladies to plan an amazing and beautiful baby shower (Thank you ladies!!!) In this post, you can see and read about the Pumpkin themed décor, games/activities, and food.
The only thing I assisted with was designing the invitation with Bennett. It was so much fun to do this with him. My sister Rachel watercolored the pumpkins and leaves for the invitation. I love how it turned out!
All the decorations were beautiful! My friend Rachel put together this amazing Little Pumpkin display. We used it as a photo backdrop for our photos with family and friends.
My mother-in-law made these a-d-o-r-a-b-l-e boy and girl pumpkins. We ended up using them as props for our maternity photos the following day.

Dress: I bought this dress from Pink Desert (I wore this to the baby shower and for maternity photos.) I absolutely love getting dresses from Pink Desert.
These pumpkin succulents made a beautiful addition to the tables as well. Everything was SO beautiful! Each guest took a succulent pumpkin home. We encouraged them to take out the succulent and plant it in a small pot.
Late Night Diaper Notes
I absolutely love this activity! I can’t wait to see all the notes written by our family and friends as we change all those late night diapers.
Baby Shower Game
Feed the daddy baby food
Ham. Prunes. Carrot. Squash. Kiwi Banana. Bennett closed his eyes, I fed him, and he guessed the baby food. He did extremely well! This game made us, and our guests laugh! If your husband is willing to eat baby food, it’s the perfect game for your baby shower.
This bundle of paper activities by Krissy’s Pintables on Etsy were a beautiful addition to our pumpkin themed shower.
The following activities were at our shower:
Who Can Finish Mommy's Phrase
Wishes for Baby
We have plans to put together all the advice and wishes for baby sheets in a book to keep forever. Maybe, I’ll include an update of how it turns out. (:
Guess Baby’s Due Date
How old were the parents-to-be?
The pumpkin flavored food items were Pumpkin Chili, Pumpkin Dip, Pumpkin pretzels, Pumpkin cookies, and Pumpkin brownies. Hot Apple Cider was the perfect drink to go along with all of these food items. They also placed out more food that wasn't pumpkin flavored. Everything was super delicious!
My face hurt from smiling so much at the baby shower. This was my very first ever shower, so it was even more special. We are so excited for baby Frazier to meet everybody God has placed in our lives.
