Baby Shower Theme – Fall Leaves and Gourds
The fall is a wonderful time to have a party, especially one which celebrates the forthcoming arrival of a new baby boy or girl. When a hostess is trying to come up with an appropriate theme for a baby shower yet does not want to go with the usual themes, a baby shower theme which caters to the season in which it is being held is highly appropriate and welcomed.
Fall Decorations that Please and Delight the Mom-to-Be and Her Guests
Decorating with a fall style is something which is not only crafty but unique as well. The centerpiece on each table can be decorated in colors which have an autumn feel to them such as brown, orange, and red. A great centerpiece for this time of year is a candle in the middle that is surrounded by leaves and gourds. The napkin rings can be fall-oriented as well to really bring out the theme on the table. A wonderful party favor for a fall baby shower is a hand painted gourd for each guest which has the name of the mom-to-be, date of the baby shower and any other pertinent information included on it. Instead of going with the usual baby shower cake, unique fall inspired desserts such as pumpkin pie or spice cake can be served to the party goers.
Games with a Fall Twist
A fun game to play at baby showers is the Name That Baby Food game. In order to keep with the theme of the party, the hostess can choose baby foods which have a fall orientation to them such as squash, turkey, etc. Another entertaining baby shower game which can be played is Name That Baby. The hostess will prepare sheets of paper with FALL FUN listed vertically down the left hand side of the page and the mom-to-be and guests will need to come up with both a boy and girl name for each letter in the word “FALL FUN”. Whoever has the most answers in common with the guest of honor wins a prize.
The fall is a great season to host a baby shower and there are so many ways to make this fall-inspired theme simply perfect.
