Cute and fun, a candy theme is perfect for the fall because it will fill your guests' minds with happy childhood Halloween memories. Candy is truly one of the best luxuries of childhood. Using sweetly colored baby washcloths and plastic wrap, you can create candy decorations in sugary shades such as pink, yellow, and green. In addition, you can decorate with large glass jars of candy and use candy for party favors too.


What mom wouldn't love celebrating her new little pumpkin than with a pumpkin themed fall baby shower? From pumpkins for decorations and pumpkin pie for desert, to pumpkin dips, bread, muffins, cookies, cake and garland, the festive colors and aromas are sure to bring warmth and comfort to the party.


Autumn offers a beautiful array of colors that can make for a stunning baby shower. Playing off the reds, oranges, and yellows can be the perfect way to celebrate both nature and the new baby. From sunflowers to leaves and pumpkins to acorns, you can find most of your decorations in the great outdoors. But if you can't venture into the woods, tissue paper pom-poms in each of the fall colors can double as flowers in vases and ceiling decorations. Find decorative gourds and pumpkins at your local arts and crafts store along with leaves and fall flowers.

Apples and Cinnamon

One of the best flavors of fall is apple. There's apple cider, apple pie, and candy apples, and of course, the apple of the new mommy's eye to celebrate. Mix the bright red and green colors of apples with the dry warmth of cinnamon, and you've got yourself a party.


These nocturnal creatures are a big trend in nursery décor and make a great theme for a fall baby shower. You can use a color combo of brown and pink or brown and blue, creating owl decorations and owl desserts. There's an abundance of owl invitations and owl décor on the market right now. An owl cake or owl cupcakes featuring a mother and baby owl make the perfect centerpiece to celebrate mom and baby.

After selecting your theme, flip through some ideas on Pinterest and find the perfect colors and décor ideas to celebrate and honor the new mom. After that, send out the invitations and throw all your inspired discoveries together for a baby shower she will treasure forever.
