What better way to welcome a fall baby than with a little pumpkin themed shower? The mom-to-be was showered with love from friends and family in a celebration hosted by a dear friend. No detail was left undone. From the labels on bottles to the covered canopy, everything was just perfect. Guests entered a beautiful, white tent and were all greeted by a friendly barista from Whole Foods offering different flavored lattes. Guests also had the option of sipping on lemonade, chilled apple punch or champagne over orange sherbet. Labels decorated the vintage glass milk bottles to mark the special occasion. Guests were also encouraged to leave a note on a plastic pumpkin for the parents-to-be to keep for the years to come. The florals filled pumpkins as centerpieces for the event. Flowers were arranged by a family friend.
Once everyone arrived, people were invited to the buffet where they could fill up on yogurt parfaits, mini donut and strawberry skewers, fruit salad, a kale and bell pepper strata, a Ortego potato bake, ham and cheese puffs, bacon, sausage, and pumpkin spiced creme brûlée french toast! The food was prepared by a professional chef named Cindy who’s day job is with Whole Foods. Not one person went home hungry!
Once everyone was done with brunch, the shower continued on with games, an activity to give well wishes to the baby, and gift opening. The mom-to-be sat comfortably on a rented sofa adorned with pillows from home which transformed the modern couch into a cozy space.
Once all the gifts were opened, all the guests moved into the house to enjoy the mini desserts also provided by Whole Foods. Before the guests left, they each were given a pumpkin bread and muffin mix from Trader Joe’s to enjoy at home.
It was a lovely morning to celebrate the birth of a very loved little boy that will be entering this world in just a few weeks. We wish all the best to the parents-to-be!
