Planning a baby shower in the fall offers a wide variety of seasonal themes using autumn colors and harvest items. Bugs-n-Blooms decorations pair well with fall themes, particularly the ladybugs and bumblebees. These themes work equally well for a mother who is expecting a baby boy or a girl, and if you want to add pink to a theme for a little girl there are pink versions of all the insect decorations.
Red, yellow, brown, orange, and green colors all work well for a fall-theme baby shower. Butterfly and dragonfly decorations come in a wide range of styles, and some of them are available in all these colors. Bumblebees and ladybugs also work well with autumn colors, since these insects are naturally colored yellow and red.
The wall-hanging decorations come in mini, small, medium, large, and extra-large designs. They can be suspended from a ceiling, hung on walls, used to decorate furniture, and combined with centerpiece elements. For more ceiling decorations, hanging mobiles are both baby-themed and colorful. They can also be given to the mother for use in decorating a nursery after they have been used at the shower.
Pumpkins are one of the first things many people think of when they think of the fall season. The “Little Pumpkin” theme lends itself to an adorable autumn shower with a rich color-scheme. Pumpkins pair well with fall flowers, like mums, and with bee decorations.
Bugs-n-Blooms' bees come in a wide range of colors, including yellow, pink, and purple. The Hailey design comes in two colors that particularly complement the Little Pumpkin theme. Yellow bees are a muted pastel color perfect for baby showers. The pink and brown ladybugs work well for a baby girl's shower.
A rustic themed baby shower can use vintage items and autumn gourds to create a laid-back setting for a baby shower. Old wooden baskets and boxes work well for holding decorations, cards, and some food items. Burlap and lace make an attractive contrast when used together as table coverings.
Mason jars with tea lights are lovely as centerpieces. If the weather is nice, this party lends itself well to an outdoor setting. Even for indoor parties, a garden element can be added to the rustic theme with cute ladybug decorations. If you don't like red ladybugs, they are also available in pink and purple.
A fall themed baby shower can also be focused around foods that are in season. Serve caramel apples, pumpkin pies, and other harvest foods to keep with this theme. More creative food ideas for snacks and appetizers include doughnut holes with the tops dipped in crumbled toffee so they look like acorns with caps, and snacks made with dried fruit and marshmallows that look like Indian corn.
Apples, Indian corn, pumpkins, and other harvest foods also make lovely decorations for this kind of a baby shower. They pair well with decorations from Bugs-n-Blooms. The mini insect decorations look very cute perched on pumpkins or wired to corn stalks.
