Will you be hosting a fabulous shower for the bride-to-be in your life this fall? There's nothing better than throwing a picture-perfect autumn inspired celebration! Establishing a theme for your event can make it easier to plan, and will give you a chance to narrow down the decorative items used.
To decorate for a fall themed shower, you'll need to purchase several table cloths in burgundy or golden yellow shades. Designate assigned seating for your guests using maple leaf place card holders and chic white cards that have been etched with a calligraphy pen. Decorate the tops of each table using candles and fall themed photo coasters that contain a picture of the happy couple and each guest for uniquely personalized place settings. These decorative items can be taken home by guests at the end of the night as bridal shower favors.
Your guests will probably want to make several toasts throughout the night, but and opening up each bottle of wine can be an event in itself doesn't have to be boring. Keep a few fall leaf bottle openers on hand to add a decorative touch to your bar. Its a good idea to keep several non-alcoholic beverages around as well to serve to younger guests or to those who don't wish to drink. Mini sparkling ciders are a tasty alternative to champagnes!
Offer up a variety of seasonal treats for guests to feast on throughout the party. A hearty chili or stew is an excellent choice for chilly or crisp fall days. For dessert, homemade pumpkin pie is always a well-loved favorite. Send guests home full and delighted with a package of personalized fall themed cookies to enjoy later in the week!
