Tablescape Thursday

I am hooking up with Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for another wonderful Tablescape Thursday. Today I am going to tell you about a baby shower that my daughter had for her friend at our home. My daughter with a friend's help put together a menu, games, and party favors for this wonderful day. Their theme was Mommy's "Little Pumpkin". It was given in November of last year and I have been just waiting for fall to share the tablescape with you.

As you see here, I love adding layers to a party tablescape it makes it more interesting and you fit more food items on the table. Of course, lots of pumpkins, baby teddy bears covered the table.This cute little bear was the centerpiece for the table. He was bought at Pottery Barn kids and part of the money that was paid for him was donated to a children's hospital. I thought that was perfect. I also like to add picture frames with family photos to the table to make it personal.
I took small square boxes and created some baby blocks wrapped in orange tissue paper. There are clothes pins in one vase for one of the games to be played at the party.

Here is a close up of the table and pumpkins. I also used ribbon, fall leaves and colorful fabric to create the levels and interest.

We also decorated with a clothesline filled with baby clothes and the baby's last name to welcome the baby.

This was a cute little t-shirt that I could not resist.

This was the mom's chair for opening gifts. It was so nice outside we actually sat outside to eat and open the gifts.

This was the dessert table. We had a cake, a fruit salad and cookies. I love putting apples in the tall vase.

Decorated in the same manner with a center pumpkin, leaves trailing down to the wonderful desserts.

This was the cake. Unfortunately it was ordered before the theme and color scheme was picked. It was still cute.

Well I hope you enjoyed my tablescape Baby Shower. We enjoyed decorating and hosting the shower. Do come back again soon and enjoy all the other tablescapes at Between Naps on the Porch. Thank you to Susan for hosting another great one!
