If you are lucky enough to host a baby shower in the fall, a pumpkin themed baby shower is not only adorable, but easy to put together.
Whether the baby will be born during the fall season or if the celebration happens to be during fall, choosing pumpkins as a baby shower theme will give you tons of amazing options for themes, color schemes, welcome signs, food and centerpieces.
Because of this, I would even argue that pumpkin is the very best fall baby shower themes!
I’ve gathered 23+ of the best pumpkin baby shower ideas that are the perfect way to celebrate a new baby.
Pumpkin Baby Shower Themes
Besides being an adorable nickname, “pumpkin” can be used in several different ways for a baby shower.
Here are some of my favorites.
1. “Lil’ Pumpkin/A sweet little pumpkin is on the way/Little pumpkin baby shower theme”
These themes would especially fit a country style baby shower. Picture gingham, burlap and pumpkin decor.
2. “Cinnamon and spice and everything nice! Help us welcome this lil’ pumpkin!”
This theme plays off the “Sugar and spice” poem for little girls but adds in some fall flair.
3. “Welcome to the Pumpkin Patch!”
This pumpkin theme would be a great idea for a family baby shower.
Color Scheme Ideas For A Pumpkin Baby Shower
When thinking about baby shower decorations, you might feel inclined to use fall colors for a pumpkin baby shower, you don’ t need to limit yourself!
Here are three completely different pumpkin baby shower color schemes to consider. Which one you go with depends on the vibe you’re going for!
1. Traditional Fall Colors
You can’t go wrong with traditional green, red, pumpkin orange, gold and brown. Not only are these colors easy to find in decor, two or more of them will really set the mood for a pumpkin baby shower.
2. White and metallic gold or silver
These colors might be a surprising choice but it makes for simple and stunning announcements and decor. White pumpkins (real and faux) can be purchased and used as-is or painted.
3. Pink or blue (or both!)
White pumpkins are easy to find and can be painted any color, including the traditional pink or blue for baby showers.
Welcome Signs For A Pumpkin Baby Shower
A sign can help direct guests to the baby shower and set the tone for what is to come.
Here are some customizable welcome signs that fit a pumpkin theme perfectly.
These are all digital downloads from Etsy shops, so you will download the file and then have it printed at a nearby print shop.
This would be a fun welcome sign for a boy baby shower or a co-ed baby shower. I love the colors and the giant pumpkins!
The white pumpkin with pink floral accents would be an excellent choice for a girl baby shower.
This would go well with the neutral or traditional pink color scheme.
I love the simplicity and fall colors in this baby shower welcome sign.
It features watercolor pumpkins and would go great with traditional color scheme or a neutral color scheme.
Centerpieces for the Best Pumpkin baby shower
The availability of pumpkins during the fall make centerpieces for a pumpkin themed baby shower inexpensive and beautiful.
Here are some ideas that won’t break the bank (and still look beautiful).
This centerpiece is easy to make and so lovely to look at!
After glueing moss to the top of real pumpkins (of your size and color choice), you will glue succulents to the top of the pumpkin.
Amazingly, as long as you spray water on the succulents they will stay alive on top of the pumpkin for 1-2 months!
This centerpiece requires old (empty) cans, orange spray paint, colorful leaves, a stick and some glue/glue dots!
I love how inexpensive this idea is and the fact that they are made from upcycled materials.
You could make a several tin can pumpkins to go down the center of the tables in a line, or just do small groupings of three different sizes.
This genius pumpkin centerpiece idea involves rolls of toilet paper, orange bandanas and cinnamon sticks!
They are a fun way to add the pumpkin look in a non-traditional and inexpensive way.
You could also buy cute baby/pumpkin fabric to wrap the “pumpkins” in.
As a bonus, the cinnamon sticks make these centerpieces smell autumnal!
These centerpiece ideas are absolutely gorgeous and couldn’t be more simple.
Carve out tiny pumpkins (the white ones are perfect for this project) and fill it with water and a mix of greenery and flowers.
These pumpkin centerpieces will be a showstopper.
