When Should you Have a Baby Shower?

Deciding on the perfect time for a baby shower up to you. Most people lean towards the end of the second trimester or the early third trimester, around the 28 to 32-week mark. Why then, you ask? Well, it’s the sweet spot where the expectant mom is still comfy enough to enjoy the festivities and the bump is proudly in bloom, making it all the more real and exciting.

Plus, it gives the parents-to-be enough time to sort through gifts, figure out what they still need, and set up the nursery without having to rush. But hey, there’s no one-size-fits-all answer here. It’s all about what feels right for the mama-to-be and her baby.

Fall Baby Shower Themes

To kick off your baby shower planning, here are some fun Fall baby shower themes that will be perfect for your September baby shower.

Fall Harvest Fiesta

Embrace the autumn season with a harvest-themed baby shower! Decorate with pumpkins and sunflowers. Serve up delicious fall-inspired treats like apple cider, pumpkin pie, and caramel apples. You could even set up a DIY caramel apple bar for some interactive fun!

Woodland Wonderland

Bring the magic of the forest indoors with a woodland-themed baby shower. Think cute woodland creatures like foxes, deer, and owls. Decorate with earthy tones, rustic elements, and plenty of greenery. You could even have a “build-a-bear” station where guests can create their own stuffed woodland animals as a sweet keepsake for the mom-to-be.

Oh Baby, It’s a Pumpkin

Pumpkins are the unofficial mascot of fall, so why not center your baby shower around them? From pumpkin decorations to pumpkin-themed games and treats, there are endless possibilities. You could even have a pumpkin painting station where guests can decorate mini pumpkins to take home.

Sunflowers and Sunshine

Brighten up the party with a sunflower-themed baby shower! Decorate with sunflower bouquets, yellow accents, and lots of sunshine-inspired décor. Serve up lemonade, sunflower-shaped cookies, and other cheerful treats. It’s sure to bring a smile to everyone’s face!

Sweet as Honey

Buzz into baby shower fun with a bee theme! Deck out the venue with black and yellow decorations, bee-themed balloons, and honeycomb patterns. Serve honey-inspired treats like honey cupcakes, honey-glazed snacks, and, of course, jars of sweet honey as favors.

Little Pumpkin in the Oven

Celebrate the little pumpkin on the way with a pumpkin-themed baby shower! Decorate with pumpkin garlands, orange and white balloons, and rustic touches like burlap and lace. Serve up pumpkin-flavored treats like pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin muffins, and pumpkin-shaped cookies.

Autumn Harvest Theme

Set the scene with rich, warm colors like deep oranges, golden yellows, and rustic browns. Use bales of hay, cornstalks, and mason jars filled with sunflowers or dried corn as centerpieces. Hang fall-themed banners and wreaths made of leaves and acorns.

Arrange a DIY caramel apple station where guests can dip apples into caramel and decorate them with toppings like chopped nuts, sprinkles, and chocolate chips. Organize a pumpkin painting or decorating activity where guests can customize pumpkins as keepsakes for the mom-to-be.

Starlit Garden Party

Create a magical atmosphere with strings of fairy lights twinkling overhead and lanterns hanging from tree branches. Scatter plush blankets and oversized floor pillows for comfortable seating. Set up a backdrop with shimmering curtains or fabric to mimic the night sky.

Pumpkin Patch Picnic

Transform your space into a charming pumpkin patch with haystacks, wooden crates, and scattered pumpkins of all sizes. Use plaid blankets or picnic tables adorned with burlap table runners for seating. Hang a rustic sign welcoming guests to the “pumpkin patch picnic.”
