Mum's the Word
What's more symbolic of Fall than a bucket of delicate autumn mums in shades of gold, burgundy, and orange? "Mum's the Word" is the perfect theme for a November shower after the spooky season is over and pumpkins have become passé. Decorate with a complete floral motif, including cheerful sunflowers and contrasting greenery.
The star of this celebration will be the stunning centerpieces. Use fresh seasonal flowers if possible. As a bonus, the desirable arrangements make excellent prizes for the winners of baby shower games.
Welcome, Little Pumpkin
Pumpkins are precious, and iconic "Jack Be Little Pumpkins" make the perfect decor when you have your own little pumpkin on the way. Don't feel beholden to an orange color scheme for your bash. Artificial or painted pumpkins can incorporate all your favorite hues and metallics.
Guests at your pumpkin party can play a thematic guessing game. Fill a clear baby bottle with mallow cream pumpkins or candy corn and ask guests to guess how many. The guest with the closest guess can receive a prize.
Actual "Jack Be Little" pumpkins make perfect additions to place settings. You can also include an artificial pumpkin for guests to sign as they arrive. Ask them to write a sweet wish for the new baby.
I Love You a Latte
What are you anticipating more: the arrival of your sweet baby or the return of the Pumpkin Spice Latte to your favorite coffee shop? You can celebrate both with the "I Love You a Latte" party theme! You'll adore the natural coffee-cup-inspired decor, including sweet checked patterns and pumpkin-colored accents.
The highlight of this celebration will likely be the treats table, where you can offer a DIY coffee bar. Guests can enjoy lattes, apple cider, chai tea, and pumpkin punch in adorable to-go cups. Be sure to provide a selection of autumnal accompaniments, such as pumpkin muffins, apple cider donuts, and yummy cupcakes with maple frosting.
The Apple of My Eye
Autumn is apple picking season, and you can celebrate your new seedling with an alluring apple theme. Decorate with a sweet, colorful bunting in bright reds and granny smith greens. Natural wood, hay bales, and apple baskets make excellent containers for treats or centerpieces.
A fun game to play at an apple-themed shower is Apples to Apples: Baby Shower Edition! This party game uses the rules of the popular card game but replaces the traditional cards with baby-centric phrases. You can find plenty of card templates online to make preparation a breeze.
A Baby Is Brewing
Are you expecting your sweet little boo around Halloween time? Embrace the magic of the spookiest season with a haunted party aesthetic that will delight every guest. Include details like a self-serve candy bar, cauldrons of treats, jack o'lantern centerpieces, and baby ghost invitations.
A spooky shower game for the mummy-to-be is a mummy race. Provide some toilet paper and have teams compete to wrap "mummy" the fastest. The team with the speediest time will receive a sweet surprise.
You can also set out a series of pumpkins and invite guests to guess which pumpkin is closest in size to mom's bump. The guests who choose the correct pumpkin can take home a spooky prize.
Introducing a Fungi
If you're welcoming a "fun guy" into your life, you can't go wrong with a sweet "fungi" mushroom theme. Deck the space with red and white polka-dotted toadstools. The woodland decor will evoke the feeling of Fall in the forest, with sweet does, baby bears, and funny foxes making appearances.
The space will come alive with the presence of mushroom-shaped paper lanterns, which you can make or buy from any party supply store.
Your shower will feel like a cozy campfire when you give guests the supplies to craft their own s'mores. The woodland theme is ideal for an outdoor celebration at a local park, where the fiery fall trees can form the backdrop. Evergreen seedlings make delightful favors that can make the world a better place for your sweet baby.
