A fall pregnancy due date has its advantages…
- Cute and comfy maternity clothes.
- Hilarious Halloween costumes.
- A guilt-free slice of pumpkin AND apple pie at Thanksgiving.
- Adorable fall-themed baby showers
What kind of adorable fall-themed baby showers? Let’s start with a personal favorite, Sugar and Spice (and everything nice!).
The sights, smells and flavors of Fall perfectly fit this girlie-girl theme.
So throw another log on the fire, grab a cup of cider, cuddle up with a warm blanket and feast your eyes on a cornucopia of sweet inspiration.
