Autumn/Little Pumpkin Baby Shower

A Little Pumpkin is on her way… let’s shower mommy-to-be on this autumn day!

Two weeks ago on a beautiful Sunday morning was my sis-in-law’s girls-only surprise baby shower. It was orchestrated by her dear friends Ajal, Samtha and myself. As we were tossing ideas on what theme to pick, it just came to me – Little Pumpkin!!! So darling for this time of the year. I had always wanted to style an Autumn-themed party since New England has the best foliage around. I totally wanted to take advantage of New England’s gorgeous natural backdrop, so I ran with it! We did orange, brown and of course pink and a slight rustic decor.

How could you not have this as the backdrop? When we first decided on the theme using my brother and sis-in-law’s backyard, the tree was still nice and green but we knew it was only matter of time that we would have a bright orange tree as part of our natural decor.

A crisp autumn day set the tone! A beautiful setting, beautiful weather, beautiful friends, beautiful mommy-to-be, beautiful everything… I wish to go back to that day, everyday!

On the menu — we decided to do baby-size food. We had some autumn treats and delicious Indian brunch items along with pumpkin spice lattes and apple cider. The lip-smacking brunch menu was put together by my sis-in-law’s amazing friends.
