Baby Shower Planning!

September 18th!  The long awaited baby shower is now one week away. Woooohoo I’m super duper excited. Today I have turned 35weeks and I’m almost there people. I had my Ava on the day I turned 37weeks so lets pray this little monster decides to stay in and bake for a few more weeks.

So what’s the theme you ask? Well…my Mom and Sister have graciously decided to throw this lovely shower and after throwing around a few ideas (A tea shower, Nesting theme…woodland theme)  we settled on one that I knew would be perfecto. Our little man is SUPPOSED to be due October 15th, BUT as it seems, he is a little to eager to wait that long. But with an October/Fall baby I thought it would be so cute if we did a my little pumpkin theme!!!! Colors of choice are Tiffany Blue, Chocolate Brown and Pumpkin Orange. Now because I am soooo anal about having my hand in anything decorating or planning I just had to help. I can’t keep out of the planning process-I love it too much!!! So while the ladies do all the planning, coordinating and food. I am doing a little bit of the design process. Store bought? Huh? No way…if I can make it myself, I will find a way!

Here’s is what I’ve done so far…

Designed the invitations!

Little Pumpkin Baby Shower invite

My little Pumpkin Baby Shower theme

Made a few Food Labels and Cupcake Toppers with the cordinating Paterns and Colors!

Fall Baby Shower cupcake toppers

What are cupcake toppers you ask?? Why these are!

and here’s is about a million you can order from Etsy sellers if your not crafty.

 I made these myself and there are hundreds of tutorials out there on how.

The example from above is from here 🙂

The food Labels…

I’ve got a bunch more fun projects to show you after all is said and done, so after next week be sure to check back and see pictures of the party and the little DIY projects I did!

Hi there,

I stumbled across your blog post when I was searching for cute pumpkin theme’s for a baby shower. I’m absolutely in love with the invitation you designed. So dang cute. I’m wondering if there is any way to share that or portions of it (if you’re willing to, of course)? Possibly just the little pumpkin and clothes line graphics? I have the full Adobe suite, but only a beginner when it comes to design. InDesign works well for me, because I’m better at putting it all together rather than creating from the ground up. In any case, I’d love to use your designs. Definitely understand if you don’t feel comfortable sharing with a total stranger, but it never hurts to ask.

Given the shower date, I imagine you’re probably starting to plan for a first birthday now.

I would love to duplicate this for a baby shower i am throwing for a girlfriend this November. Would you be willing to sell me a printable package or something? I love the colors, patterns, etc. Any help would be great. Thank you so much.

I love your baby shower invites and I am throwing a fall theme baby shower for someone. I love to create my own digital invitations but cannot find this clothes line anywhere. I know it must be out there somewhere because I have seen it on many invitations. Would you be willing to share where you purchase this digital content?

I am giving my SIL a baby shower this Fall, with a pumpkin theme, and love your color theme, invites and all -would you be willing to share you design, or how you went about creating it?

Thanks so much,
