Lil' Pumpkin Baby Shower

If you're hosting a baby shower this autumn, consider using pumpkins for your inspiration. The mama-to-be will adore the pumpkin decor and tasty treats while sharing the guests excitement for her "lil' pumpkin".

Use pumpkins to spell out, "It's a Boy!" (or girl) either by writing on them with a marker, or carving them and placing candles inside. You could also carve a pumpkin for each letter of the baby's name and place them on the front step to welcome guests -- Creative Party Place
