Decor, Food & Favor Ideas for a Little Pumpkin Baby Shower

The season may set the basic palette for this baby shower, but see how you can also add pops of turquoise and gleaming metallics. Plus, combine fall dishes and fruits with sweet baby shower treats.

Ideas for a Gender Neutral Fall Baby Shower with a Little Pumpkin Theme

Make sure guests mark their calendars early by sending out adorable Little Pumpkin baby shower invitations (1 – from Purple Trail). Then, prepare a warm welcome to the occasion with a pumpkin-themed baby shower banner (2 – available on Amazon).

Now, for the table settings. Since most (if not all) of the shower guests will be adults, you can go for a fall tablescape look that’s elegant yet easy (3 – styled by Bellenza). Go for table linens in rich, earthy tones, foliage centerpieces, touches of copper, glowing candles—and of course, pumpkin decorations galore, both faux and real!

Then, lay out a scrumptious food buffet (4 – Nina on the Moon) serving finger foods, a fresh veggies-and-dip platter, and colorful fruit skewers in a pumpkin centerpiece. For the "little pumpkin" treats, have a dessert and sweets table (5 – Get Creative Juice) all decked out in the shower’s color scheme with elements of wood, burlap, hay, and galvanized metal, plus a fabric-scrap banner, and orange paper lanterns overhead. And for the star of the sweets table, a Little Pumpkin fall baby shower cake (7 – Diaper Cakes by Ruby).

Finally, as a thank-you to guests, prepare lovely fall favors (6 – styled by Bellenza). We suggest caramel apples, popcorn balls, or autumn potpourri bundled up in burnt orange fabric wraps (from the Bellenza SHOP)—to resemble "little pumpkins" in keeping with the theme!

Definitely a gender-neutral baby shower to FALL for, don’t you think?
