Little Pumpkin Baby Shower - Pass Me Some Tasty

Here's everything you need for a sweet Fall-themed 'little pumpkin' baby shower! This post is filled with fun ideas for fall-themed party food, baby shower game ideas, and decor inspiration to celebrate the arrival of the newest little pumpkin in your life!

I'm going to be an Aunt again!!!

It's been almost 6 years since there's been a new baby in the family so we're all a little excited over here. Excited because babies are obviously exciting and awesome. And excited because as an Aunt I get to enjoy all the baby cuddles and cuteness BUT without the sleepless nights and diapers. My sister and brother-in-law get to enjoy that part (LOL). Don't worry sis you'll do great and the brain fog from sleep deprivation combined with the emotional rollercoaster from postnatal hormones eventually dissipates. Many have gone before you and survived (some barely).

Did I mention you won't get much sleep in the beginning?

While my sister and brother-in-law still have their wits about them a baby shower was definitely in order. My sister looooves Halloween so it was only suitable that we throw a sweet Autumn/Halloween/Pumpkin themed baby shower. I don't recommend spooky baby showers. Spooking the mama-to-be could bring on early labor and change the whole dynamic of the party. Keep it sweet.

Naturally we turned to Pinterest for the Pinterest party perfect inspo and themes. Duh. Who else gets sucked into the black hole of Pinterest perfect backyards, Pinterest perfect vacation destinations, the Pinterest perfect wardrobe, Pinterest perfect hairstyles (which I will never have), and food? Don't forget the food. That's where I hang out a lot. You can find me here (waves and smiles).

So with a little help from many fellow bloggers and online creatives who are not only creative geniuses but have some serious skillz when it comes to decorating, creating themed food, and crafting baby shower games that can appease a co-ed guest list, the shower was fun and honored my sister and bro-in-law and their little pumpkin on the way.

7 Tasty Snack Ideas for a Fall-Themed Baby Shower

Whether you are hosting a baby shower, a friendly (not spooky) Halloween party or just a fun fall-time gathering where you don't necessarily want to feed the party-goers a full 5-course meal but want to satisfy your guests' snack cravings with some crazy tasty food here are my recommendations and what I served during the party. Check it out!

Cheese & Pretzel Broomsticks

Ummm...so HOW cute are these little broomsticks?! A pretzel stick, some string cheese, and a chive to tie it off. So basic but so genious and fun to eat. You can find the directions over at the blog One Little Project At A Time.

Pumpkin-themed deviled eggs

Deviled eggs made to look like little pumpkins are obviously perfect for a fall-themed party. Find the deets on The Food Blog. Note: I subbed Cholula for the Sriracha just to turn down the heat a little.

Jack O'Lantern Veggie Plate

Parties usually have some kind of veggie tray so why not turn it into a jack o'lantern?! Thanks to Raising Jack with Celiac for the simple and genius idea! I also served the veggies with a side of this creamy Greek Yogurt Ranch Dip.

The BEST Gluten-Free Pumpkin Cupcakes

Tis the season for pumpkin and these Pumpkin Cupcakes are HEAVENLY! They were definitely the hit of the baby shower and party guests were shocked when they found out they were gluten-free because they are just so SO delicious. These dreamy cupcakes are topped with a swirl of cinnamon cream cheese frosting and then lightly dusted with cinnamon on top. A sprinkling of chopped pecans or walnuts would be delicious on top of the frosting as well but I decided against it just in case we had anyone with nut allergies attending. I also tripled the recipe for our large group.

Salted Caramel Cream Cheese Apple Dip

Here's an easy riff on the classic caramel-covered apple. Slice up your apples and serve with cream cheese topped with salted caramel. It's ridiculously easy, a super tasty combo, and a lot more manageable to eat than a whole caramel-covered apple. You can find my recipe for salted caramel located in the recipe card for these Salted Caramel Brownie Ice Cream Parfaits (which are also amazing btw). 🙂

Smoked Salmon Dip

You can't have a party without chips and dip! Serve an assortment of chips and crackers with this Smoked Salmon Dip with Dill & Capers. The dip is a huge crowd pleaser so be sure to double the recipe if you have a big guest list.

Apple Cider Punch

Lastly, let's talk party punch. I'm not usually a big fan of punch but this Apple Cider Punch from Better Homes & Gardens was a winner. It's a simple combo of 6 cups apple cider, 2 cups orange juice, ½ cup lemon juice, and 1 (750 milliliters) bottle of sparkling white grape juice. We had several children attending our party but if you are hosting an all adult party switching out the sparkling grape juice with some chilled champagne would be amazing too!

Fall-Themed Baby Shower Games

Alright, let's talk baby shower games and activities. This is definitely not an area I specialize in so we handed this off to one of my sister's close friends who knocked it out of the park with some awesome resources she found on Etsy and Amazon.

SweetBabyShower shop on Etsy creates printable custom party kits and shower games which not only provide some fun entertainment but are also creatively themed to match the style of your party.

Here are the games we played:

  • Baby Bingo
  • Baby Name Race
  • Mommy or Daddy?
  • Don't Say Baby

A table was also set up for a baby headband making station. Each guest picked from a variety of ribbons, bows, and flowers along with elastic bands to create a sweet little custom headband for my niece. It was SO easy to set-up since all of the components for the headbands were included. The only thing you need to have on hand is a hot glue gun and a table to lay everything out.

Little Pumpkin Baby Shower Decor

Then finish off your party decor with an assortment of painted pumpkins. My sister painted mini pumpkins in an assortment of pinks, gold, and silver while also scattering some naturally orange and white mini pumpkins throughout. Here are the instructions for the painted pumpkins from Oh Happy Day (which btw is an incredibly cute website for party planning and DIY inspo). Be sure to also add some pumpkins at your front door as a sweet way to welcome guests as they arrive along with this super cute "Hey There Pumpkin" doormat.

A pennant bunting with the words "Welcome Little Pumpkin" (see picture near the top of this post) was hung across our fireplace mantle. I wasn't able to track down the exact bunting that we used for this but these burlap flags would be just as cute with white lettering painted on them. And this fall-themed felt ball garland would also be super cute to decorate with!

Lastly, if you are on the hunt for a "Sweet Baby" rustic wood sign like the one pictured below, your local Craft Warehouse has all of the supplies to create this quick DIY project. If DIY is not your thing, Morgan over at PaintMePeachy on Etsy, could create a custom rustic wood sign for you as well!

And that's it! I hope you found some valuable fall-themed baby shower and party ideas from this post! As for myself, I'm counting down the days until I meet my sweet little baby niece. Eek!

Did you use one of these ideas for your party?!

It was our first experience of going to the camp, now my daughter doesn't want to hear about other camps. I liked absolutely everything!

November 17, 2017


Daughter of 14 years old visited this camp for the first time, summer shift 2017 (July 16-29) at the boarding house Parus Ruza district. We meet today! I was very satisfied, already booked a winter shift. Meals 5 times a day, she had a room for 2 people, a bathroom for a room, and not a shared one for the floor, etc. Children are constantly busy, there is no free time, they do not use gadgets, which is undoubtedly a plus. The counselors (ladies and lords) are great, they know how to organize children, the attitude towards children is respectful. Thanks to the organizers for a wonderful vacation, after which the children, not yet returning from the camp, ask to come back! nine0003

July 29, 2017


My daughter (13 years old) visited this camp for the first time - she had a rest in the third summer shift at the base in Istra. We were satisfied with everything, and the daughter is so simply delighted, and now she wants to go only here. She really liked the special atmosphere ("cities", "ladies and lords" instead of the usual squads and leaders - this is a great idea), the ladies and lords themselves - special thanks to Lord Junior and Lady Carrie, and also to Lady Mirana, who shared her knowledge in a fascinating way history, and, of course, a rich program of activities. nine0003

Masha Puntus

When I get to the EC, I understand that I am the happiest person in the world. My 2nd session of 2016 has just ended and I am already looking forward to returning to the EC. This unreal atmosphere of the club cannot be expressed in words, because it is more than just words. These are emotions. These are feelings. It's a whole separate life! This is my 4th session in the EC, where I got the title. But the main thing is that I found a lot of new friends, whom it was very difficult for me to let go today, when I was leaving the best place in the world. I love the House of Lords. My favorite bodybuilders are L. Rico and L. CasyD, they are awesome and cool. nine0003


Maria Gromova

My son simply adore the Euroclub. Looking forward to the trip every time. He says that it is a lot of fun there, every day with a new theme, there is no time to be bored. Lords and ladies are very attentive, caring and cool. The base in Istra is very large, the rooms are small but cozy, each room has a separate room with a shower and a toilet. In general, my child loves Euroclub very much, and I trust this camp.



Wonderful camp! The child has been resting for more than a year, he praises the atmosphere that reigns in the camp! He scolds me when I call the Euroclub a camp, he says that this is a club! Children are always supervised, at any time you can call the program managers and find out all the information about the child! Ladies and Lords are very bright, active and positive young people. I also like English classes very much, they are held in a playful and very interesting way! We bought a ticket for the winter holidays, the child is waiting;)



Wonderful camp! Everyone is delighted: daughter, son, and my husband and I as parents. This camp provides full supervision and care for children. And also, thanks to a rich program, children have no time to be bored and, most importantly, there is no time for the phone. When we sent children for us, this was the main criterion. The camp met all our expectations and even more! We will come here again and again. And we recommend Euroclub to everyone!


Natalya Vladimirovna

My daughters, triplets, rested in this camp in the summer of 2011 (at the age of 10) and in the summer of 2013. (at age 12). In 2013, they took 4 more friends with them, and all the children were delighted! But these are children from different families and went with different expectations. Already at the exit from the gates of the camp, everyone shouted in chorus "We'll come again!" Daughters liked everything - Lady, classes, sports events, evening parliaments, discos, master classes, and everything else. But the most important thing in the Euroclub is the atmosphere. Children are welcome here, they are taken care of, they are taken care of, they are loved. nine0003

October 21, 2013


Thank you very much for being you!!! Daughter from 10 years old, for 7 years in a row, agrees to travel only in the EU!!! He doesn’t even want to hear about other camps, and why? Warm, friendly atmosphere, intimate conversations, interesting quests and outdoor activities. With the guys, ladies and lords from the club, they communicate not only in the camp, they meet and correspond all year round! It's a pity that all good things come to an end, next year she's already 18... and the last trip to the EU is

Children's birthday menu: photos, recipes, dish ideas

How to make a child's birthday truly unforgettable? Gather his friends, come up with entertainment and, of course, treat everyone to something delicious. But pleasing little guests is sometimes more difficult than adult gourmets. Our article will come to the rescue. In it, we have collected 10 dishes that will enchant even the most capricious persons. Serve these treats for a kid's birthday party and no one will leave hungry. nine0003

Original canapés

Kids will appreciate the unusual presentation, and adults will appreciate the ease of preparing the dish. Indeed, among the recipes for a children's birthday, it is important to have at least one option for a quick snack. For canapes in the form of ladybugs, it is better to take unsalted crackers with the addition of whole grain flour. You can grease the products with both pate and hummus or curd cheese.


  • crackers - 10 pcs.
  • cherry tomatoes - 5 pcs. nine0252
  • leaf lettuce - 3-4 leaves
  • olives - 3 pcs.
  • pate - to taste


  1. Cut the cherry tomatoes in half and make a shallow cut in each half.
  2. Brush crackers with pâté and cover with lettuce. Excess greens can be removed.
  3. Top the salad with half a cherry and a quarter of an olive.
  4. Decorate the finished ladybug with a pattern of white dots. To do this, dip a toothpick in Greek yogurt or mayonnaise and gently color the workpiece. nine0252

Snack Muffins

Children are rarely fans of vegetables. But thanks to such muffins, they will even eat the hated green beans or green peas. It's nice that you can change the toppings to your liking. For example, take corn, ham or some broccoli and cauliflower. It is also better not to forget about the vegetable slices on the table. Serve carrot, pepper and cucumber sticks with yoghurt sauce.


  • green beans - 100 g
  • green peas - 100 g
  • cheese - 100 g
  • chicken eggs - 2 pcs.
  • sour cream - 3 tbsp. l.
  • flour - 3 tbsp. l.
  • Bulgarian pepper - 1 pc.
  • baking powder - 0.5 tsp.
  • salt - to taste


  1. Defrost beans and peas.
  2. Peppers and cheese cut into small cubes.
  3. nine0251 In a clean bowl, mix eggs with sour cream and salt. Gradually add the sifted flour mixed with the baking powder.
  4. Add prepared cuts to batter.
  5. Divide the pastry between molds and bake for 15 minutes at 180°C. Then lower the heat to 160°C and bake the muffins for another 15-20 minutes in the oven.

Cheese donuts

If you don't know what to cook, try these donuts. At a children's birthday party, they will definitely become a popular treat. The main thing is to find a good crumbly cottage cheese with a fat content of 5-9%. It is desirable that there is not too much moisture in the mass, gluing the grains together. Otherwise, wrap the cottage cheese with gauze and put it under pressure for 2-3 hours to remove excess moisture.


  • cottage cheese - 200 g
  • cheese - 80 g
  • flour - 70 g
  • chicken eggs - 2 pcs.
  • baking powder - 0.5 tsp.
  • sesame - to taste


  1. Mash the cottage cheese with a fork or chop with a blender.
  2. Add grated cheese, whole egg and one egg white.
  3. Add the sifted flour and baking powder and knead into a stiff dough.
  4. On a floured surface, shape the dough into a ball and divide into 6-8 equal portions.
  5. Roll each piece into a sausage and seal the ends.
  6. Transfer the blanks to a baking sheet lined with baking paper and brush with the remaining yolk. nine0252
  7. Garnish with sesame seeds and bake for 30 minutes at 180°C.

Mini Pizzas

Who would say no to a popular treat? For a children's holiday, it makes sense to make portioned pizzas. It will be easier for kids to hold them in their hands. As a sauce, ordinary ketchup or a mixture of pureed tomatoes boiled with spices is suitable. In addition to cherry tomatoes, you can use bell peppers or broccoli for the filling, and put boiled chicken or turkey instead of ham. When serving, garnish pizzas with fresh herbs, if desired. nine0003


For the dough:

  • flour - 200 g
  • water - 90 ml
  • olive oil - 30 ml
  • sugar - 1 tsp
  • dry yeast - 4 g
  • salt - pinch


  • ham - 200 g
  • cherry tomatoes - 8 pcs.
  • tomato sauce - 3 tbsp. l.
  • cheese - 50 g


  1. Mix yeast, sugar and water. Cover the bowl with a towel and put it in a warm place for 15-20 minutes. After the specified time, a foam cap should appear on the surface of the mixture.
  2. Sift the flour into the activated yeast, pour in the olive oil and add the salt. Knead a homogeneous dough that will not stick to your hands.
  3. Transfer to a clean dish greased with olive oil and leave warm for 1 hour. nine0252
  4. Punch down the risen dough and divide into 8 equal pieces.
  5. Shape each piece into a 8-10 cm round shape and place on a baking sheet.
  6. Brush base with tomato sauce, top with ham and cherry halves, sprinkle with cheese and place in the oven.
  7. Bake the mini pizzas for 15 minutes at 210°C.

Chicken skewers

Homemade skewers continue the selection of recipes for children's birthdays. When preparing a marinade, remember that the child likes simple and understandable tastes more. A large set of seasonings, especially spicy, he will not appreciate. But vegetables will add benefits and make the meat juicier. For variety, place sliced ​​bell pepper or zucchini between the chicken pieces. Don't forget to prepare wooden skewers. Before stuffing the meat, it is advisable to soak them in boiling water, otherwise the wood may burn in the oven. nine0003


  • chicken fillet - 800 g
  • kefir 3.2% - 180 ml
  • onion - 1 pc.
  • garlic - 1-2 cloves
  • salt - to taste


  1. Cut the chicken fillet into 2-3 cm pieces.
  2. Chop the onion into rings, mince the garlic.
