Lil' Pumpkin Baby Shower

My daughter is having our first grandbaby-- as I've mentioned here before. She is due on Halloween and of COURSE I volunteered myself to throw her a shower. A few of my friends T and K told me that they wanted to throw it but I arm wrestled my way into doing it with their help. :)
Since the due date was Halloween, we loved the idea of pumpkins. Thus the Lil' Pumpkin theme was born (no pun intended)

Pinterest again--- heavily borrowed from and a big thank you to everyone out there who posts their party plans as I do. Don't we just love each other??

We served pumpkin and fall themed foods for dinner
Pumpkin Ravioli with sage butter sauce

White chicken corn chili served in mini pumpkins with corn bread muffins
Apple, bacon and caramelized onion turnovers
Individual lush cakes- that look like upside down candy corn

Caramel apple "nachos"

We made individual pies in mini mason jars for our thanks for coming gift

We had some fun with pumpkin bowling

We made a few "mummies"

and we had a great time!
