If you have your baby shower during the Thanksgiving season works out
very well as for planning baby shower themes, decorations and supplies. A few ideas are to use the theme of
"giving thanks", by having everyone say what they are thankful for. It
is also a great time to give by having everyone donate to a charity of
less fortunate people, especially to a single mother's or children's
organization. A cute baby shower idea is to have everyone sign a
Thanksgiving theme board (i.e., in the shape of a cornucopia, turkey,
pilgrim, fall colors, etc on the board) and give the parent's to be so
ideas that would be helpful for their preparing for their little one.
Symbolic candy, including candy corns,
miniature pumpkin candies, and fall colored candy are great to place on
tables of the baby shower. Serving finger food out of Cornucopia's (the
horn looking container that is symbolic of thanksgiving) as well as
spreading colorful leaves and flowers (sunflowers) on tables is a nice
touch. The pumpkin theme is still cute and works for Thanksgiving as
well as Halloween. Finding pumpkins that are symbolic of a mother,
father and child is a cute idea. You an even decorate the pumpkins which
is always a conversation piece.
Food that you serve can also tie in such
as little finger food turkey sandwiches, ham, corn,
cranberries/cranberry juice. Baby shower decorations can be purchased or
created for the Thanksgiving season as well as cups, place settings and
other items. The use of brown, gold, orange, red, black and yellow is
festive for the November season. Dried leaves can also be cleaned and
used as decorations. Pass the baby pumpkin (like hot potato) can be
Wall decorations can be Thanksgiving
related, with the use of pilgrims, pumpkin cut-outs, Indian feathers,
turkey, and fall symbols. Items can be placed on tables for the baby
shower guests to enjoy! A great baby shower game to play is to have
everyone write a message for the mother and father to be on cut out
pumpkins, cornucopias, leaves or pilgrim hats and present them to the
parent's-to-be by placing them in a keepsake box shaped like a
cornucopia. Have the mother-to-be read each one out loud as she takes
them out of the box which makes for a sentimental and fun time.
A cute idea is to purchase pumpkins and
place a smaller pumpkin in the larger hollowed-out pumpkin to symbolize
the pregnancy! Dress the "mommy" pumpkin up for the baby shower and it
will be sure to get some laughs from the baby shower guests!'
