So your BFF asked you to plan her fall baby shower and you’re stoked… but also admittedly a little lost about which theme to choose. Before you automatically go down the well-trodden path of planning a pumpkin-themed baby shower, consider these other baby shower ideas that are just as *fall-tastic.* If she’s an outdoorsy type, throw her a glamping-themed baby shower.

Whatever her preferences, she’ll surely appreciate at least one of these 20 fall baby shower themes that go beyond the pumpkin.
