5 Ideas for Throwing a Pumpkin Baby Shower

31 Aug

Are you planning a pumpkin themed baby shower this fall?  We have five great ideas to help you plan the perfect party!

Five Ideas for a Pumpkin Themed Baby Shower

  1. When planning a pumpkin-themed baby shower, try to incorporate all sizes of pumpkins and gourds for decorations.  You can hand-paint them the color of your theme (or gender) and even use stencils on them.
  2. If you’re planning a sit-down luncheon or brunch, you could make your own place settings with mini-pumpkins with guests names on them (also a cute favor to take home).
  3. Throwing a gender reveal party? Carve a pumpkin and the lid is removed to “reveal” the gender.
  4. Serve dips in carved out pumpkins.
  5. Plan a photo opp area with bails of hay and some pumpkins.

To set the tone of your pumpkin themed baby shower,  you can send personalized pumpkin baby shower invitations.  You can get even more ideas on our Pinterest board for Fall Baby Showers.  We are always adding the latest invites and party trends to help you plan the perfect party.  Happy Planning!

(Easy) Halloween Tabletop Decorating

26 Oct

Halloween is just a few days away!  Have you decorated yet?  Or do you wait until the last minute?  I have a few cute (and easy) ideas to help you decorate a tabletop in no time and be ready for trick-or-treaters and guests if you’re having a get together.

To make this entryway table sPoOkY for Halloween, I used a frame I already had.  I bought a sheet of Halloween window clings (you can find at most party stores), and put it on the glass of the frame.  Easy and effective!  I added some “bones” I found at my local dollar store for added effect.

I also added some LED pumpkins that add a fun effect at night when lit up.  The glittery sign can be purchased at a store like Hobby Lobby.  Of course, I added some personalized napkins from The Stationery Studio for the beverages and food.  This tabletop display is set-up for an adult drinking area for my get together.  But this can easily be set-up for a kids party.  You can add some Halloween punch with dry ice for a fun effect.  This is also a great idea for your entryway table where you set-up for your trick-or-treaters on Halloween.

Share your Halloween decorating ideas!  We’d love to hear what easy and fun ways you decorate.

What Happens When Skeletons Come Out of the Closet

31 Oct

Happy Halloween!  Trick-or-treaters will be knocking on doors looking for candy and carved pumpkins will be glowing into the night.  Halloween is my favorite holiday.  How could I not love it?  The vibrant colors of leaves changing, the crisp air, caramel apples, pumpkin lattes (wait … pumpkin EVERYTHING!).  And of course, the costumes.  That’s why Halloween is so fun.  Besides the costumes, I love seeing yards decorated with tombstones, gigantic spiders and ghosts.  So when I read about a family in South Carolina that decorates their porch with skeletons, I had to see what they did.  To my amazement, this family changes the scene on their porch every day until Halloween during the month of October.  The creativity is just amazing!  These are a few of my favorite scenes they’ve created this year.

Honestly, I don’t know how this family thinks of all these great ideas or how they have the time!  Do you create awe-inspiring Halloween scenes on your lawn or porch?  Or do you have neighbors that go all out with great ideas?  I would love to see what you do!  I am always looking for inspiration for Halloween decorating. Either way, enjoy your Halloween and have fun sneaking in a few candy bars for yourself between the trick-or-treaters!
