With wedding season coming to a close and fall right around the corner, many of our friends and families are patiently waiting for the arrival of their little ones. And to prepare for parenthood, a baby shower is a must. Are you struggling with what your theme will be? Or where you’ll host it? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered. This time of year offers so many opportunities when it comes to themes for baby showers, here are a few of our favorites!
This cute and fun fall-themed shower is one of the best ways to celebrate the momma-to-be! Start by sending out invitations with the phrase “Our little pumpkin is on the way”. Spruce up the space by buying some small pumpkins and flowers from your local farmers’ market. Make some pumpkin oreo pops and hand them out as favors! The do-it-yourself options are endless for this theme, so if you’re looking to save an extra buck, this is the perfect choice for you.
If your shower is planned for October, you HAVE to put together a witchy, Halloween-themed shower! Think of decorating with cauldrons, bats, witch hats and spider webs. Your invitations can introduce the theme by saying “A Baby is Brewing”. This theme also allows for so many fun cocktails (for the guests, not the future mama) – serve a Purple Haze cocktail (cranberry juice, black raspberry liqueur and fresh mint) or fruity Red Sangria! Both of these cocktails are the perfect color to tie into your witchy vibes. For favors, consider giving your guests a small pack of incense sticks or candles.
Fall is the best time to go for a hike – the leaves are changing, the air is crisp, and smores are always on the menu! When decorating your shower, think pine cones, flannel shirts, and lanterns. Serve Hot Apple Toddy cocktails (apple cider, whiskey, and honey) in outdoor camping mugs that can double as the guests’ party favors. Invite your friends and family to this awesome gathering by saying “Our Adventure is just Beginning” on your cards. To add to the fun, encourage your guests to wear flannel shirts!
