I styled this adorable Little Pumpkin Baby Shower especially for Twinkle Twinkle Little Party magazine. I wanted to use rustic elements, and thought it was the perfect way to celebrate Fall and a new Little Pumpkin on the way. Oranges, browns, mint green, and touches of lace, wood, and burlap create a beautiful gender neutral color palate. Perfect for a boy or girl!
Paper printables were created with a rustic feel including dark wood, burlap and lace. A “Pumpkin Patch” entrance sign was created, and both the sign and a wood crate were stained dark to match the paper printable set. The wood crate housed sweet CandyBobs tied with burlap which were displayed on a bale of hay.
The center of the table displayed a simple naked cake with adorable burlap and lace baby bunting. A tiny fondant pumpkin was placed on top to symbolize the little pumpkin on the way. Other sweets included mini naked cakes, chocolate covered Oreos with fondant toppers, and mini pumpkin donuts laying on a bed of crushed Oreos to resemble dirt.
A galvanized 3-tier stand displayed the cutest handmade paper pumpkins and mini cupcakes with pumpkin and onesie fondant toppers on top. On the bottom tier were gorgeous pumpkin and lace onesie cookies that were given a rustic look to fit the theme.
Custom orange and lace mason jars were used to display straws for drinks and wrapped cutlery. Berry baskets and lace votives were used to add extra cuteness to the table, along with a beautiful fabric garland that was used on the sweets table and gift table. The table backdrop was created with strips of burlap and lace, a matching baby banner, and orange paper lanterns to resemble pumpkins.
