I helped plan a baby shower last fall with my mom. The mommy’s family already gave her the pink girl shower, but since we were giving her a shower for our side of the family, we decided to go another route. Since her baby is due during fall, it just seemed fitting to have a fall baby shower!
The treats were so simple and I tried to keep the cost down. I picked up two packages of caramel apples from the grocery store and some ribbon. I simply tied it around the stick. This is the type of ribbon that has wire that helps it stand up.
Instead of paying a ton of money on cupcakes or a cake, I opted for chocolate mini cupcakes and popped on a candy corn pumpkin. Very easy and there were only a couple of cupcakes left.
I also put together a popcorn bar with lunch bags from my pantry by loosely folding down at the top of the bags. The popcorn was prepackaged with just a hint of sea salt. I also made my own seasonings I found on PinterestI reused my clothesline, and added some photos I took of the mommy and daddy, along with some feathers I found in the scrapbooking section at my local craft store. I also made an apple cider punch, piled some donuts on a tray, and I had grapes and cheese for the people who were watching their waistlines.
Overall, it was a nice fall afternoon with friends and family to celebrate this little’s new life to come. I reused items from our houses, the clothesline, and bought snacks that were already packaged and ready for purchase. This kept it simple and on a budget!
