Halloween Baby Shower Decor
A Halloween baby shower is the perfect opportunity to get creative with decorations! Hang up some spooky spider webs, pumpkins, and other Halloween-themed items to give your party a festive atmosphere.
You can use balloons and backdrops similar to a normal baby shower, but also go Halloween crazy for the season! For an extra special touch, you can even make your own decorations out of felt or paper.
A Baby Boo is Due
How gorgeous is this throne for the special mama-to-be? Whether or not she is expecting a boy or girl, you can make this gorgeous backdrop for her this Halloween.
A Baby is Brewing
Although typically a feminine color, this purple backdrop can be used for a baby boy or girl! Complete the look with purple balloons, witch’s cauldron, small bottles of potion, sticky bats, and spider web decor.
Pink Halloween Backdrop
Perfect for a baby girl, add a little pink in with black and white and it’s a gorgeous Halloween baby shower theme.
Baby is Brewing
This backdrop adds touches of orange and black throughout the room to really set the mood.
Our Little Boo is Due
I love this backdrop for a baby boy. I like how they incorporated the mint green in there too.
Skeleton Treat Cart
What a great idea to have a plastic skeleton pushing a bar cart? This is a great idea if the Halloween baby shower is in a home. Add in some skeleton cookies and treats too!
These illuminated marquee letters will absolutely be a hit with your guests and the mom-to-be! I just love this color scheme incorporating both fall and autumn elements.
I love this motif incorporating fall harvest touches with spooky season. Using browns and beiges gives a fall feel with Halloween.
Love this little pun on a baby’s “witching hour.” This beautiful pastel balloon sign still goes well with the Halloween baby shower theme.
Pink Witch Place Settings
These place settings are adorable for a girl’s Halloween baby shower. You can grab some of these wooden ghost cut outs at the Dollar Store and paint them pink. Also, painting pumpkins is a super way to add some color into your decor.
Halloween Baby Shower Treats
Serve up some creepy treats like chocolate covered spiders, cupcakes decorated with candy eyes, or monster cookies. You could also make a witch’s brew punch that has dry ice in it for an extra spooky effect!
A Little Boo is Due Baby Girl Cookies
How sweet are these pastel pink cookies for a Halloween-themed baby shower? OMG!
Baby Brewing Cookies
Completely different than the sweet pastels above, but just as festive!
Double Trouble Cookies
Is this mom expecting twins? Double trouble is a great theme for a Halloween baby shower for twins!
Little Witch Brewing
Got a baby girl brewing? Show her off with this gorgeous cookies!
A ghoulish cake and treats
I love this spooky theme with greens and purples for a Halloween spin.
Halloween Baby Shower Favors
Although all of those cookies above can be used as favors if you put them in little plastic bags, there are some other great ideas here:
Witches Brew Champagne Bottles
These bewitching party favors are adorable! Add a mini witch hat to a champagne bottle and a sweet tag. The tags on these champagne bottles reads “Pop the bubbly when (mom’s name) pops.” Enjoy a toast when baby arrives.
Mini Cauldrons filled with Treats
Grab some mini cauldrons (these ones are very small) and fill them with treats, whether it be small candies or knick knacks- the choice is yours!
Other Games and Ideas
There are a load of ways to make your Halloween baby shower fun and special. Depending how much you want to create a Halloween environment (or stay true to a simple baby shower, but with some Halloween decor), here some ideas to make it memorable!
Encourage your guests to dress up in their favorite costume for the baby shower! This is sure to be a hit with everyone, especially if you offer prizes for best costume!
Pumpkin Carving Station
Set up a pumpkin carving station at your baby shower so that guests can carve their own jack-o-lanterns while they wait for the mom-to-be to open her gifts! Provide some tools and stencils so that people can create unique designs for their pumpkins.
Candy Bar to Trick or Treat
No Halloween party would be complete without candy! Set up a candy bar with all sorts of delicious treats like chocolates, gummy bears, licorice, lollipops, and more! Guests can fill up bags with candy as they mingle and chat about the upcoming arrival of the new baby.
Pumpkin Spice Treats
What better way to celebrate fall than with some pumpkin spice treats? Make sure you have plenty of sweet treats available such as pumpkin muffins, pumpkin bread, pumpkin cookies, and even pumpkin pie! These will definitely get everyone in the spirit of autumn and ready for Halloween season!
Signature Cocktail or Mocktail
Surprise your guests by serving up a signature cocktail made just for this special occasion! Try something like an apple cider mimosa or a caramel apple martini – both are perfect for getting into the Halloween spirit while still being appropriate for a baby shower event.
Decorate the baby shower with pumpkins of all shapes and sizes. You can buy real or artificial pumpkins, or you can have your guests make their own pumpkin decorations.
Add some spooky fun to the baby shower with some Halloween-themed games. Try playing “Bobbing for Apples” or “Pin the Broom on the Witch”. You could also play a game of “Guess Who’s Baby?” where guests try to guess which celebrity babies are shown in pictures.
Mummy Wrapping Game
Play a mummy wrapping game where teams compete to wrap one another in toilet paper as quickly as possible without tearing it apart! The team that wraps their teammate up like a mummy first wins this hilarious game – just make sure you have enough toilet paper on hand before starting this one!
Baby Costume Parade
This activity is sure to be a hit with all of your guests! Ask each guest to bring an infant or toddler-sized costume for the baby-to-be. Then, have everyone parade around in their costumes while everyone guesses who is wearing what costume. At the end of the parade, give out prizes for best costume and most creative costume.
Halloween Photo Booth
Set up a spooky photo booth complete with props like fake spiders, bats, witches hats, etc., so that your guests can take fun Halloween themed photos together! You can even print out copies of these photos for your guests to take home as souvenirs from the shower.
Have each guest write down their favorite spooky story (or make one up!) beforehand and then have them read it aloud during the shower! This activity will get everyone laughing (and maybe even screaming!) as they listen to each other’s tales of terror!
Halloween Mad Libs
Print out some Halloween themed mad libs beforehand and have each guest fill out one during the shower – you’ll be sure to get some hilarious results when they are all read aloud at once! Bonus points if you can find baby themed mad libs that relate directly back to your new bundle of joy!
Provide plain white onesies for each guest along with fabric markers and fabric paint so that they can decorate them however they want – it could be anything from funny sayings, cute animals, or even monsters – whatever they come up with will make great gifts for when baby arrives!
Bobbing For Apples
Fill a tub or basin with water and apples (make sure there are enough apples so that everyone has at least one) then have people take turns trying to grab an apple using only their teeth – whoever grabs an apple first wins!
Enjoy this extra memorable baby shower with Halloween themes! The mom-to-be is sure to love it.
