‘Tis the season to gather, and there is no sweeter reason to do so than celebrating a new baby! There is just something about this time of year that makes us want to clink mugs, decorate pumpkins, and reconnect with loved ones while the leaves turn outside.

All of the sweetest fall motifs combine to make this autumn baby shower idea shine. In addition to themed cookies, use rustic touches like twine and burlap, serve drinks on birch coasters, decorate in a colour scheme inspired by fall leaves, and make sure to incorporate pops of gold and baskets of gourds throughout.

Pumpkins do not get all the fun this time of year! Apples are a super sweet addition to the fall lineup, and a great central motif for a baby shower. You can serve cider donuts, warm and chilled cider, and add dried apple rings as garnish for drinks. Red balloons with green paper cut-outs shaped like leaves are a perfect pop of pretty for the apple-themed baby shower.

Another take on the pumpkin-themed baby shower idea: Kick it up for the 'basic fall mama' in your life with Starbucks logos, pumpkin-spiced everything, and an orange, gold, and green colour scheme. Personalised cups would be the perfect party favour, and do not hold back on the bling… nothing goes with spice like sparkle!

Reap the best of the season with a gorgeous fall fruit and vegetable theme. This would be especially stunning if you can throw your party outside. If not, set the scene indoors with foliage, corn husks, and overflowing baskets of seasonal florals and snacks. Do not forget a robust, vegetarian charcuterie.

Baby animals make any shower extra cute. When it comes to fall baby showers, this idea can be done easily and is very on-theme. Decorate in a scheme of browns and greens inspired by the forest floor, bringing in little creatures where they feel appropriate. Acorns, pinecones, and dried flowers round out the space adorably.
