How to Throw a Fall Baby Shower

Discover how to throw a Fall Baby Shower with our easy-to-follow guide.

Having a baby on the way is one of the most exciting times of your life, so why not celebrate with a Baby Shower! Fall is a beautiful time of year and it’s perfect with a whole host of Fall Baby Shower themes. Below are our best ideas for how to throw a Fall Baby Shower that’s fun and festive.

1. Choose a date for your Fall Baby Shower

When planning a Baby Shower, most Moms-to-be choose a date where the third trimester. This means you are well along in the pregnancy but not too close to the due date.

Depending on when your baby is due, you can link to different Fall Baby Shower themes. For example, if your timing works out that your Fall Baby Shower may be around Thanksgiving, you may want to opt for a Thanksgiving theme. If your Fall Baby Shower will be earlier in the season, you can choose something lighter, like this beautiful theme.

2. Where to host a Fall Baby Shower

Traditionally, Baby Showers are held at the host’s home. In the Fall, weather will be a consideration, so an indoor Baby Shower is most likely. That being said, depending on where you live, you may be lucky enough to have a milder climate and still be able to party outside.

Celebrated in a park in the local woods is also a good option if the Shower is in early Fall. Plus, you get to capture the natural beauty of trees for your decor! Just remember to plan a backup location in case it rains.

Another option for a Fall Baby Shower is to celebrate over lunch or afternoon tea at a cafe or restaurant. The benefit of planning a Baby Shower at a restaurant is that preparation, food, and cleanup are all taken care of. This means all your guests (and you!) can enjoy the day and worry about mess or preparation!
