A little Pumpkin on his way....

I LOVE this time of year, fall weather, leaves changing color, chili and football on Sunday afternoon, Halloween, followed by my favorite holiday, Thanksgiving. Who doesn't love this time of year? And with this beautiful fall season comes pumpkins. Lots and lots of recipes and ideas do with pumpkins, from carving them, pumpkin butter, pumpkin muffins, pumpkin pancakes, pumpkin cookies to pumpkin pie and so much more!

So when our close friend Carmen told us she was expecting I was thrilled to help throw her a shower. So her sister in law and I decided to go with a pumpkin theme baby shower on October 30, to perfect, right? Well we had a blast planning and putting this together. Here are the pictures from the event!!

We carved a pumpkin and put in some beautiful fall flowers.
I also carved some mini pumpkins and put in tea lights too!
We wrapped candy pieces with baby shower sayings.
Then the cake!
Since our theme was pumpkin related, I put a little baby in a pumpkin patch.
With a few baby items to go with him.

We put the cake up high with fall candy corn in a dish.
This time I made baby shower cookies and
decorated them with fondant instead of royal icing.
We also made a pumpkin theme diaper cake!
These were a hit, a Pregatini!
sort of like a martini but without the alcohol.
Just LOVE the fall colors and how it all worked together!
And these were our favors for everyone to enjoy...
Pumpkin bread!

Congratulations to Carmen and Sean on their new bundle of joy to be!
Thank you to my friend Narja with all her help hosting the shower
and to her wonderful husband Peppie who helped make some of the food!
