Sometimes it is really hard to come up with a birthday party theme close to the holidays. While I love Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, they aren’t birthday party material. But, then it is also hard to have a party that isn’t related to the holidays at all. The solution? Pick something with a seasonal theme.


The perfect theme for a autumn baby shower or first birthday party is a Little Pumpkin Party! Cute little pumpkins aren’t always available year round, so this is perfect time to use them as props for a party.


To keep the party a little lighter and soft, use mint green and yellow mixed in with the pumpkin orange. I love how the mint green paper straws look with the milk bottles.


To make the food wrap, just print and cut the printable. Tape the food wrap into a cylinder shape. Place a cupcake liner inside and fill with food.

Cookies are the perfect addition to a Black and White Party treat table–and even better as party favors! Packing a couple of Oreos in simple white glassine bags (I used these ones) and sealing with the free printable cookie labels makes these favors a breeze.

To make the topper, cut out several stars. Imperfection is endearing in this case, so just eyeball and cut. Cut stripey straws to varying heights. Tape each star a to straw (there is a great variety of straws at Bake It Pretty!).
