We’ve collected ten of the best ideas that can be used to fill your autumn soiree with vibrant colors, delightful flavors, and lovely activities.


Bring the Outdoors In

All you need to do is look out your window for some pretty inspiration. Grab a branch and hang a few apples for a lovely backdrop or collect freshly fallen leaves and string them together for a crisp, colorful garland.


Make a Cheesecake…Literally.

First, head to your local grocer to purchase 3-4 rounds of cheese and a variety of fruit. Stack your cheese largest to smallest and garnish with nature’s delicious bounty. offers tips and detailed step-by-step directions.


Pretty Pumpkins: More Than a Jack O’Lantern

Give this fall mascot a gorgeous makeover for your next bridal shower. Pumpkins can be used as accent signs, centerpieces, or place cards. Not a fan of orange? Grab a paintbrush and some acrylic paint and voila, you can have customized décor that matches your bridal shower color scheme.


Don’t Forget the Caramel Apples

This delectable fall treat should not be left out of your shower. Set up an interactive caramel apple bar, make adorable twig apples, send them home as a party favor, or try this scrumptious Toffee Apple Cake.


Add a Little Sparkle

If your bride-to-be likes a little bling, add some sparkle to her day with painted hanging leaves, a glitter monogram pumpkin or glitter pumpkin candle holders.


Make a Hot Drink Bar

Baby it’s cold outside….so help your guests warm up with a fun hot drink station. Our favorites are a Hot Chocolate Bar or an Apple Cider Bar.


Fill a Vase…or 2!

The bold colors and beautiful textures of autumn make excellent vase fillers. Use them alone or as candle holders. Popcorn kernels, split peas, kidney beans, acorns, pinecones, mini pumpkins, candy corn, nuts, cinnamon sticks, apples, pears, or pomegranates- the options are endless!


Make a Memory

Give your bride a memorable autumn item that can be used to decorate her home year-after-year. This fingerprint tree or signed pumpkin will always remind her of the love of family and friends!


Decorate a Mug or Wine Glass
