Planning to celebrate your little miracle this Fall? Looking to plan the ultimate Fall shower for a friend or family member? You have come to the right place! I have gathered a few of the most adorable, fall-inspired ideas (and split them into 4 categories for your convenience- Food, Decorations, Games & Activities, Favors) to incorporate into your baby shower this upcoming season.
There are many ideas out there for baby shower food options in general, but I pulled a few fall specific ideas to help inspire you! I always like the idea of having some sort of “do it yourself bar” at any gathering, because it gives the guests an opportunity to get creative so I did include a couple of those.
Caramel Apple Bar
Caramel apples are a fall staple, so why not incorporate it into your shower as well. You can do this using whole apples, or slice them up and create more of a ‘nacho’ style dessert.
Apple Cider Bar
Fall is filled with apple inspired treats and drinks – perfect to inspire an entire apple cider bar!
Consider adding a fall inspired touch to any food you were planning on serving. Pumpkin cake pops, chips/dip served in a pumpkin (see above) , or even those beautifully decorated sugar cookies can easily be fall themed. Some other ideas include these deviled eggs or pumpkin cheesecake dip.
There is so much you can do when it comes to decor for any baby shower, but certainly when it is fall inspired! Incorporate pumpkins, deep florals, greenery and more to create a beautifully decorated baby shower.
Pumpkin Floral Centerpieces
Floral centerpieces are always a beautiful touch to any event. Throw them into a pumpkin, maybe add a topper, and you will have the perfect DIY centerpieces. I love how there is so much room for creativity here!
Mason Jar Centerpieces
Mason jars can be so versatile, especially when it comes to decor. You can use these any time of year, and how you choose to dress them up is what makes them the perfect fit for your baby shower. The fall color scheme looks so sharp against these white mason jars, but you can personalize however you’d like!
Cute & functional! This is a fall inspired twist to the classic diaper cake. Pair it with some fun ribbon, and the Mama to be will love it.
Pumpkin & Greenery Table Decor
This is a very simple way to decorate your tables, and again, allows for so much creativity and personalization. Add some flowers if you’d like, but the simple pumpkin and greenery combination is just as beautiful!
As with any theme, a quick search on Etsy will pull up dozens of banners and decor pieces to match what you are looking for. Here are a few examples to inspire you, but there are so many more options out there!
Again, similar to the banners above, there are balloon garlands and bundles out there to match any theme. Balloons create the perfect photo opportunity to capture all of your memories! Whether you choose to do a full balloon arch or just add a few balloons around the room, they are a fun way to enhance your space.
Games & Activities
No baby shower is complete with at least a few games for everyone to enjoy. It is always fun to make guesses about who the baby will resemble more or how much certain baby items cost these days. Whatever games you choose to include will certainly bring a smile to all of your guests’ faces!
Guess The Number of Pumpkins
Here is a fun way to get everyone involved and the winner gets a jar full of treats! You can really fill the jar with anything, but pumpkins or candy corn would of course fit that fall aesthetic!
Pumpkin Guest Book
If you are looking for an alternative to the traditional guest book, an artificial pumpkin is a great idea. This gives your guest the opportunity to wish you well, and you get a practical decor piece at the end.
Fall Themed Classic Games
Similar to the banners listed above, there’s a plethora of printable games available on Etsy – all for any theme you could need. I pulled a few fall themed classic baby shower games for you, but the options are endless on this one.
You may feel as though your baby shower is not complete until you send your guests home with a small token of appreciation. Favors certainly aren’t necessary, nor do they have to correlate with the theme of the shower, but here are a few fun ideas –
What says fall dessert like a delicious fruit pie? This is a favor your guests will certainly be thanking you for later. You can send each person home with a “pie pop” or individual mini pie, either way, it is the perfect way to say thanks to those who showered you with love and gifts.
Another classic Fall treat that your guests will surely appreciate. Send each person home with just enough supplies to make their own smore, add a cute label and your favor is complete!
Soaps & Hand Sanitizer
While this isn’t traditionally a Fall-specific favor, it certainly is a practical one. You can find Fall scented soaps or small sanitizers at places like Bath & Body Works, add a ribbon or tag and your practical favor has been fall inspired!
This favor is perfectly fall and is a cute way to remember your baby shower. Guests can add this pumpkin to their desk or mantle, or include it in their already growing pumpkin patch on the front steps. Again, add a label and the favor is complete!
Fall is a wonderful time of year to host (or attend your own!) baby shower. There is a crispness to the air, the leaves are changing colors, and it is a beautiful sight all around. This list of fall inspired baby shower ideas was designed to help inspire you to create your own perfect shower. Use all or one of the ideas, but either way be sure to enjoy your day of celebration Mama! A little baby is on their way and that deserves all the love in the world!
