To celebrate our 2nd sweet baby boy, we happily hosted a charming, modern, fall-themed baby shower with Munchkin! It was such a joy to team up with Munchkin, an adorable brand we’ve used since Romeo was born.
I invited some of my special friends for an afternoon of great food and fall fun. Well, we tried to make it as fall as possible, even with the 90-degree weather, by adding a lot of pumpkins! See all of the details below!
Of course, we played some obligatory baby showers games! We kept them classy and simple though! We did a rubber ducky prize drawing and also played the don’t say “baby” game!
Baby Shower Dessert Station
I personally love when events have activities or unique stations that give guests something to do while socializing and I’ll never throw a party without some type of crafting station and of course NEVER without a dessert station.
For the dessert we had Savannah, from HauteSugar Co., spinning an incredible pumpkin chai cotton candy!! It was a charming and delicious touch!
Baby Shower Catering
For food, I had one of my favorite catering companies in Los Angeles, Heirloom, cater the baby shower. To match the overall theme, I chose a fall brunch spread and it was such a hit!
They made the most gorgeous fruit platter, fried chicken and waffles, avocado toast, pumpkin bread (everyone’s fave!), vanilla bean scones, a pear salad, and quiche! Honestly, their presence alone is stunning and you can never go wrong.
Fall Baby Shower Craft Idea
For the craft station, I wanted something that was fall-themed, simple and not too messy for guests. So we set up an area for them to create mini-succulent pumpkins!!
They’re no-carve and all you need is moss, hot glue, mini pumpkins, and some tiny succulents! It was a big hit and even my not-so-crafty guests were able to enjoy and complete one with confidence, haha!
Fall Baby Shower Cocktails
For the cocktails, we served apple cider Moscow Mules and made the Algonquin Bar Punch. Actually, funny story… because one of my sweet friends, Leah, showed up just a few minutes early, I put her to work and had her make the punch as I was rushing to get dressed in time! Luckily, Leah likes cocktails as much as I do, so it turned out great… thanks Leah!!! To make it easy we served flat and sparkling water bottles and sparkling apple cider too!
I was so determined to find the perfect white bar for the party within my budget, which wasn’t happening! So instead, I had one custom built by our carpenter/neighbor for half the price and now I can keep it forever!
I kept the decor charming with Harlow and Gray’s gold triangle garland, lots of fairy tale pumpkins (the best kind ever!) and the most gorgeous fall blooms from my friend Erin at White Fig Designs! Flowers are EVERYTHING!!
Modern Fall Baby Shower Shopping Guide
Modern Fall Baby Shower Shopping Guide
Fairy Tale Pumpkins – I bought these at my local grocery store!
Gold Triangle Garland – The super chic and simple garland is from Harlow & Grey and I’m obsessed with how it easily transforms a space. Instant party!
Copper Moscow Mule Mugs – I searched high and low for good quality Moscow Mule mugs that didn’t cost a fortune! I even thought about renting them, but then found these, which I was SUPER happy with! The quality is great and now I get to keep them for future parties!
Punch Bowl – The Britta Optic from Crate and Barrel is one of my favorite modern punch bowls!
Gold Stripe Straws – I will never get over paper straws!
Gold Letter Balloons – These balloons are mini so you can spell out whatever you want and add a festive touch!
Disposable Leaf Plates – We used disposable plates to make clean-up easier at the shower. The quality of these plates are so good, everyone kept asking me if they were even disposable!!
Mini White Pumpkins – Bought these at my local grocery store and we used them for our craft activity and to place around!
Marble Gift Bags – All of our guests were able to fill a gift bag to take home. I saw these modern ones from Paper Source and fell in love!
Giant Balloons – I love using giant balloons for parties since they’re easy and super festive! Instead of trying to fit them in my car already blown up, I bought these and then used a helium tank like this to inflate them at the location!
Baby Shower Favors
The prizes were the best part though! We gave away Munchkin’s VIB (very important baby) gift basket filled with a curated selection of items for the first year. It’s pretty much the perfect gift for any new mama!! We also gave away their amazing Luna baby gate! It’s not just your average gate either, it’s sturdy, lights up and has a sleek modern look to it!
And thank you to all of my wonderful friends and sweet blogging buds Catherine, Leah, Mara, Anne, Molly, Amy for being there to celebrate with us!!
