As with any other baby shower, your Halloween Costume themed baby shower requires invitations. Think about using Halloween party invitations or creating your own custom design.

Donning Halloween Costumes

Since this is a Halloween-themed party, be sure to remind guests to come in costume! If you would like, you could also impose restrictions, such as asking your guests to wear baby-themed costumes. You can also consider giving out simple costume accessories (like eye patches or princess tiaras) for the guests who may not usually dress up for the Halloween season.

Halloween-Inspired Decorations

Decorations are another need for any celebration. Of course, with a Halloween-themed baby shower, you will want to use more traditional Halloween trim. Look for black and orange streamers and balloons to decorate the room. You can also layout traditional Halloween icons like witches, black cats, ghosts, and skeletons. To keep with the baby topic, consider using black kittens and baby ghosts as some of your decorations.

Enjoyable Games

Many usual baby shower games can be done with a Halloween spin to them or you can take Halloween games and put a baby spin on them. For instance, try bobbing for instead of bobbing for apples. Play a memory game using Halloween accessories on the tray as well as baby ones. Mark your baby Bingo cards with orange and black crayons. You can even do things like decorate a baby shirt with a Halloween theme. Consider giving party goers different sized baby onesies (so you will have one for now and ones to wear in the years to come) to draw their own pumpkins, ghosts, and black cats on them.

Entertaining Gifts

If this is a shower for a second, third, or more baby (one where it is more about getting together than mom actually wanting baby supplies), you could challenge guests to bring the most inventive Halloween gifts for baby. This can include everything from baby costumes and Halloween clothing to decorations to hang in the child's room.

Halloween-Inspired Favors
Since retailers are full with trick-or-treat goodies, locating favors to send home with guests should be relatively simple. Consider getting mini treat buckets to fill with goodies or Halloween-themed gift bags.

Thank You Notes

As the recipient of the party, mom will need to send out thank you notes for all the gifts received. An easy way to make this chore easier for mom (who may not have much free time in the upcoming days) is to have guests address their envelopes while they are there (you can even have them do two if mom is planning on sending out birth announcements). Try using Halloween cards as your thank you notes to keep in the theme.

While it may sound a bit unorthodox, a Halloween Costume themed baby shower can be an enjoyable way to integrate costumes and Halloween fun into the usual baby shower routine. Your party will certainly be remembered for some time to come!
