Hello! My sister is getting married in October, and as the MOH, I'm in charge of her bridal shower. I'm not sure who will be there, but probably friends and maybe future in-laws and mother. I'm still not 100% sure if it will be all ladies, or groom and guy friends too, but I was looking for ideas about what to do. I'd rather not have all traditional games, but nothing too inappropriate or raunchy. Any ideas for food, games, decorations, gifts/favors, and invitations for a fall-themed wedding shower? Should I have another theme or just decorate with pumpkins and gourds. Any help would be appreciated as I've never done this before!!! Thanks!  Grin

This isn't necessarily fall-themed, but I'm planning a bridal shower murder mystery.  It's catered to the women attending my friend's shower specifically, but it'd be really easy for you to change to make your own.  Let me know if you're interested in that and I'll email you all the pages once I'm done.  You could definitely do traditional bridal shower games, but any men would not be very interested in them. For food, I'd have a potluck harvest anyway.  It'll cut down on costs for you and there'll be tons of diverse dishes.   We had a joint shower for our first baby in early October.  Everyone had to dress up in costume and that was really amusing.  Depending on when she's getting married, you could still have the party in October and that'd make dressing up fun, but if it's in September, then that might be pushing the limits of what people will tolerate for participation!  Decorate with fake leaves on the tables and give prizes or favors of warm things - hot cocoa/mugs, Starbucks gift cards, gloves, etc.  I'm not sure about invitations, but I do know for a fact that people RSVP better and more people come when you send out real invitations (instead of via email or phone), so I'd recommend that. 

I love planning parties - come to me if you need any ideas!

I took some garlands of fall leaves from the dollar store (doubled up because the were a bit skimpy) and twisted them with white fairy lights and had them running along a buffet table for a party once and it looked very festive but elegant. I had regular string lights but they did get a bit hot so if you have LED lights I would use those. It was a last minute idea that I came up with to dress up a serving table that looked too bare when I cleared the food  during the party but it could be used in lots of different ways.

^That's a neat idea. I never though of that

Has for decorating I'd recommend putting fall colored cloth on the. You know red, yellow, orange. Put pumpkins around. For food I'd say a kind of Oktoberfest type deal. You know beer sausage. (sorry if you don't drink maybe not the beer).

If I can think of anything else I'll let you know
