Pink-themed Food and Drinks to Serve for a Halloween Baby Shower

From savory and sweet bites to bubbly beverages and chilled desserts, our selection should give you delicious ideas for your own baby shower menu. Just think pink + Halloween!

Pink Halloween Baby Shower Food - Pinkoween!

Bite-size appetizers and finger foods are the easiest to serve at a gathering. So for savory choices, we selected Ham Pinwheels on Crackers (2), Bruschetta with Prosciutto, Ricotta, and Arugula (3), and Beet-Pickled Deviled Eggs (5).

For sweet selections, we found Soft Pink Cotton Candy Candy Apples (1) to “tempt” guests with. Plus these scrumptious-looking Raspberry Swirled Cheesecake Cupcakes (4) and darling little Ghost Cupcakes (6) that you can make yourself.

In honor of the celebrant, how perfect is a MOM-osa Bar (7)! But offer a choice of sparkling water to mix with, in addition to the champagne. (Hint: You can get the printable sign and labels from the link below.) Then, for dessert-type drinks, serve Pink Sherbet Punch (8) topped with raspberries and No Bake Pink Lemonade Cheesecake Parfaits (9).

More Pink + Pumpkins for Halloween Baby Shower Decorations

Halloween never looked so sweet and dainty as in these decorating ideas we found, but with touches of black for some chic edginess! You can easily craft your own spin-offs of these for the shower.


For your entryway, make a “Jill-o-lantern” pumpkin display in baby form (1)—complete with a crown, big bow, and pacifier all in pink! Pair it with a chalkboard sign announcing a fun greeting for the guests.

For centerpieces or to grace the dessert and drinks tables, arrange varied sizes of pink and gold dipped pumpkins (5) trimmed with beads, buttons, and flowers. Then, hang black paper lanterns (2) overhead as a nod to Halloween.

Keep the table settings (3) simple in white table linens with burlap runners, all-white china ware, and bunches of baby pink blooms in gold-dotted pumpkins. For a pop of bolder color, add fuchsia-tinted votive holders (4) and sprinkle fun confetti bats (6) in black and pink amidst the place settings!

You can actually give anything pink as favors—from jelly beans to lollipops to candy melt-dipped pretzels to popcorn to mini chocolates—and just add tags, labels, and trims that say Halloween!


Take store-bought favor boxes, bags, or pouches and finish them with printable pumpkin tags (1). Or fill brioche baking cups (2) with treats, wrap them in cello, and tie with ribbon. For an element of surprise, set up a fun pink themed candy table (3) complete with black and pink decorations. You can include popular favorites like gumballs, lollipops, and rock candy.

If you prefer to DIY, try these adorable ghost treat boxes (6) with the tutorial for 7 designs provided. Or go for dip-dyed treat bags (4) made with muslin pouches and personalized with kraft paper circle tags.

And for the girliest baby shower favors, tuck candies or small gifts into these pomander-style sachets (5). Guests can use them later to hang fragrant closet fresheners at home, while the new mom can make them into an adorable nursery mobile for baby!
