Decorate your table with a rustic tablecloth

Whether you’re hosting the shower at your home or an outside location, adding table linens can really reinforce the theme of your fall baby shower. A Burlap Tablecloth has the rustic look of burlap with a softer feel — and the ability to machine wash the linens when you’re finished (Burlap-Tablecloth, $).

Use eco-friendly tableware for a sweet table setting

If you’re throwing the shower at a hall, hotel, or restaurant, tableware will likely be provided. However, if you’re having a fall baby shower at your home, there’s nothing like seeking out eco-friendly tableware to help make your table adorable and your clean-up a little easier. We adore Susty Party products for several reasons.

Based in Brooklyn, NY, Susty Party creates disposable tableware that is compostable yet colorful, highly-functional, party-ready, and responsibly made in partnership with non-profit factories who employ and empower the visually impaired community. All Susty Party products – our plates, bowls, cups, straws, cutlery, tablecloths, and napkins – are made from renewable or sustainably harvested materials, and made in North America!

Match your games to your rustic shower theme

Finding an easy baby shower game that doesn’t annoy guests and helps the mom-to-be is simple with the Apple of My Eye baby shower. Simple buy a Half-bushel basket or two (Bin-Store, $6). Fill the bushel basket with diapers — we love Pampers Swaddlers diapers — and have each guest guess how many diapers are in the basket (P&G eStore, $28). The guest closest to the winning amount gets a prize, and the pregnant mama leaves with extra diapers.

When you throw a shower, do you prefer to stick with a theme or to mix and match as you go?
