Mariah's Baby Shower

Last Saturday between sessions of general conference, I threw a baby shower for Mariah (with help from her friend, Emily Morgan, who I know through our dinner group).

We did a little pumpkin theme.

I found a ton of cute ideas on Pinterest for decorations, but because my week was so crazy, I only had time to make one of them. I pulled out my November decorations and used some of those for the rest of my decorations.

{Funny story: Bill saw these pumpkins on Friday night and thought we were announcing to them that we are having another baby - thank heavens we are NOT, that would be way too soon!}

We feasted on some of my favorite autumn food - Baked Potato SoupCreamy Chicken and Wild Rice SoupWorld's Best Dinner Rolls, Texas Roadhouse Cinnamon Butter (1 cube butter, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1/3 cup powdered sugar - beat until smooth).

Apple Streusel Cheesecake Bars, Pumpkin Bars, Caramel Toffee Dip with green apples, and cranberry punch (Could someone please direct me to a good recipe for this? - I love it when I have it at parties, but I can never seem to make a good one myself!).

We played a Lil' Pumpkin Trivia game and wrote down our best motherly advice for Mariah. And of course showered her with lots of fun stuff for her little girl!

It was a fun shower to celebrate Mariah's little pumpkin - due to arrive the beginning of December!

I recall doing a "little pumpkin" shower with you about two years ago as well!! Looks like you pulled off another great party. Looks like fun!

I am so thrilled for Mariah!

What a sweet friend to throw her a baby shower along with Emily's help!

Looks delicious!
