"Little Pumpkin" Baby Shower

The Spread...

This is pumpkin cream cheese spread. Thanks Lynne for making it. It was so good and I got this recipe at Click on the name to go to the recipe.

Pumpkins, pumpkins everywhere!

We had pumpkin muffins, pumpkin muffins with chocolate chips, wraps, 4 types of dip w/ bread, bagel chips and crackers, pumpkin Charlotte, and punch. It was so yummy. I usually don't eat during a party because I'm walking around making sure everything is going well, but once everyone left I grubbed down. Can I say yummy!

The company...

These are Tiff's sisters. Aren't they cute!
I bet you can't even tell that Lacey is 6 months prego!

This is the glowing mother-to-be (4th baby!) and all her millions of friends!

Lot's of cute baby gifts!

I only wish my front room would fit people better. It's an odd shaped room and we work with it, but it would be nice to have a huge great room, so we could party more often and be able to move around at the same time :)

The details... This is a gutted out pumpkin with a vase of flowers in it. Got this idea online.
These are wraps. Vegetable cream cheese spread, sun-dried tomato turkey, provolone, cucumbers, home grown Roma tomatoes, red leaf lettuce. YUM!
The terrific punch! Tiff's sisters created this for me. It was pineapple sherbet, pineapple chunks, half-and-half, sprite. Half-and-half makes the world go round :)
These are the pacifiers I made. Everyone got to wear these around their necks and if someone caught them saying the word "pumpkin" or "baby", then they lost their pacifier. The one with the most at the end won a prize.
This is the beginning of what I made-Pumpkin Charlotte. I got this recipe on Click on the name to see the recipe. It was a new experiment and it tasted good.
These are the party favors. I was so excited this past weekend when I found these. I was in IF and I went to Roberts and found a screaming deal on these. So much so, that I had to buy one for all the guests. Aren't they the cutest little pumpkins!

I made these candy coated marshmallows to put in the pumpkins. They taste divine and they look a little like pumpkins. My poor kids had to stare at them while the candy coating dried. It just about killed them! And yes, they did get some :)

Matthew's happy there aren't any parties at our house for awhile! Thanks to everyone who helped me and thanks Tiff for giving me a reason to party. You know I love to throw a party almost as much as you do :) It's a lot of work, but so much fun! When's the next party??!!!!

I can't believe you've already got this on here. When did you find the time? The party was amazing, and of course I loved all the pumpkins, you can never have too many. You are a great friend and I love that you love to throw a party like I do. Thanks for all your hard work. I had a great time! : )

Looks like it was a hit. Next time I have a party, I will be calling you (LOL) seriously!!

You are just too cute and clever. You remind me of me. I have a motto I'll share with you that you and matt can appreciate -

"If a thing's worth doing... it's worth overdoing!"

Dacia said...

Thanks for all the kind comments. You know me, I love a great party, I love to decorate, oh yeah, and I love to overdo things!! :)

I wish I could fly all over and throw parties for all of you. Maybe when I'm rich and famous! ;)
