Tips for Hosting a Fall-Themed Baby Shower

It’s no secret that I love fall. I become giddy at the first signs of falling leaves and have to fight the urge to get out my fall decor before the end of summer. I’m hosting a baby shower in November and what better theme than all things autumn?

I’ve rounded up some ideas to give me a little inspiration when planning the big event. It’ll be warm, intimate, and filled with the little touches that make this season so special.

Come see what I found!
