So come and see what we dug up in the baby shower “pumpkin patch.” Inspiration for a gender reveal party with that cozy fall feel—thanks to decor touches, fun food choices, all the way to announcing the baby’s gender courtesy of (you guessed it) pumpkins. Here we go! (*this post contains affiliate links)

Pumpkin-inspired Decor Ideas

Pumpkin themed gender reveal decor and games

Start with a warm welcome display of a pair of pumpkins (1). A charming decorating idea we spotted on Happenings of Our Home—lovely to set up on a porch bench, your front doorstep, or an entryway table.

As guests arrive, hand each one a pumpkin-themed guest name tag (2), as found on Parties by Tanea. Such a cute and clever way to identify everyone and how they are related to the coming baby!

Then, challenge guests to guess whether the baby is a girl or boy. Use a “He or She?” gender reveal poster (3), like this one from Amazon, for them to “cast their votes” with pink and blue pumpkin stickers.

Food Ideas Right on Theme

Pumpkin gender reveal food and cake

Save a special spot for the baby shower cake—decorated with a teasing pumpkin-themed topper (4) saying, “It’s a…” (available on Amazon) to keep everyone guessing!

For a light and easy party menu, lay out an inviting harvest-inspired food buffet (5) that plays up the pumpkin theme in everything from the veggie tray arrangement, to the deviled eggs, to the mini gourds as decor accents. Thanks to Pass Me Some Tasty for the creative ideas.

Now for the Fun Part!

Pumpkin gender reveal pinata and pumpkin carving

This is it! Time to let everyone in on the “boy or girl” reveal—but done with a pumpkin, of course. We found these two cool options. A DIY-able pumpkin piñata (6) filled with blue or pink confetti, among other reveal ideas featured on Baby Chick. Or a carved pumpkin (7) with a colored smoke bomb hidden inside, that you can make following a how-to by Gender Reveal Surprise.

Finally, thank everyone for being there for this special moment. Set up a gifts and favors table (8) as charmingly as Savvy Sassy Moms did to match the pumpkin theme. And we just happen to have an entire post of fall party favor ideas—including homemade pumpkin gift items and treats. So take a look!
