Although we pride ourselves on being anything but basic, we most certainly are when it comes to fall (give us alllll the PSLs!) That’s why we just had to write up a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to throwing your bestie the most fabulous fall bridal shower.
From invitations and decorations to food, favors, games, and gifts, we’re dishing out our top fall bridal shower ideas and planning tips to make this pre-wedding party theme one to remember.
Start by selecting a super-cute fall-inspired invitation. We did our research and came across a ton of “Fall in Love” options (how clever!) Our faves include these pumpkin watercolor and fall florals styles:
Not your style? Check out a bunch of other choices here.

Where do we even begin!? From appetizers to desserts, and everything in between, there is no shortage of yummy fall food! It was impossible to narrow it down, but here are some of our favorites:
One of the best parts of fall is all of the festive drinks that come with it. Treat your guests by putting together a DIY mimosa bar with a spin!
Instead of the typical fruit juices and garnishes, switch it up to include apple cider, fresh apple slices, and cinnamon sticks. Display our fall-themed mimosa bar sign as an added touch:
Or make it easier on yourself by whipping up some big batch cocktails like these:
We love the idea of teaming up with your fellow bridesmaids and shower guests to assemble a group gift for the future Mr. and Mrs. Our first idea is a spin on the traditional date night jar idea- we call it the “fall bucket list”.
Simply have everyone suggest their favorite fall date idea (i.e. going to a pumpkin patch or taking a haunted hayride) using our Made by Modern MOH cards and assemble it into a gift you can present to the couple.
Our second idea is to have everyone contribute to a personalized recipe book filled with their favorite fall recipes (Thanksgiving family recipes are the best for this!)
