Autumn is an awesome time of year...we break out the snuggly clothes, the hot chocolate and pumpkin everything!
And with all of the rich, warm colors and flavors it's a great time for a baby shower.
These 8 simple (but creative!) ideas will show you how to take all the things you love about fall, and put them together to throw one beautiful baby shower!
1) Decorative Baby Pumpkins
Place a few of these sleepy, baby pumpkins around your party space. They’re almost cute enough to be swaddled and rocked to sleep!
To create: Simply tie a bow or place a baby hat over the stem, draw on the face, and cut out a small opening to place a pacifier.
2) Fall Baby Shower Invitations
Announce your fall-themed baby shower with a beautifully fall inspired invitation. “A little pumpkin is on the way” — and what a perfect way to celebrate it.
3) Fall Baby Shower Decorations
These fall leaf candle holders are a pretty, but simple autumn decor idea. They're also 100 % DIY! Martha Stewart walks you through how to make gorgeous flaming foliage votive candleholders on her site.
4) Fall Baby Shower Diaper Cake Centerpiece
A fall diaper cake is another great idea that can serve as a touch of fall decor, but this one is also useful for the mommy-to-be after the shower. ReadyMadeDiaperCakes offers an adorable (and affordable) Little Pumpkin diaper cake that will match your fall theme beautifully.
5) Fall Baby Shower Table Decor
Have some fun with your table decorations by creating them yourself. You can core out a pumpkin and place a small container (or tin can) filled with some water in the center. Then simply add some of your favorite fall flower, and voila!
6) Matching Fall-Themed Baby Shower Cake
Many of your local bake shops, or even online retailers can help you create the perfect cake for your autumn baby shower.
Samantha's Sweets offers this adorable cake that will help you and your guests celebrate the impending arrival of your "little pumpkin" in yummy style.
7) Fall Baby Shower Appetizers
Another great DIY shower idea is homemade snacks! You can make these cute, pumpkin look-alike deviled eggs by garnishing with paprika and chopped green onions for little stems.
8) Fall Baby Shower Favors
Thank your guests for attending your autumn baby shower by sharing some fun (and yummy!) favors. Simply fill up cute containers with some caramel dip, place an apple on top and wrap everything in cellophane with a ribbon bow to complete this adorable favor.
