Double the anticipation. Double the love. Double the presents! Planning a baby shower for twins means having double the fun, and tapping into some creative themes that emphasize the adorable reality of welcoming two babies at a time. From the tried and true,to more unusual, here are some twin baby shower ideas that are sure to make double the celebration.
Noah’s Ark Shower
The animals came two by two and so will these new babies! With a Noah’s ark theme you can easily find invitations and other animal themed décor in your local party store or online. You can also incorporate small plush animals such as monkeys, elephants,and giraffes into your décor, and top a diaper cake with a big basket of animal bath toys, for decorative touches that are perfectly on theme and make sweet gifts for the mom to be.
Two Peas in Pod Shower
It’s inevitable when you’re having twins that someone will call them, “two peas in a pod.” But no matter how well-worn that term may be, it’s true that seeing two little babies swaddled up napping together is incredibly precious. Capitalize on the peasin pod theme with a green and white color scheme, and foods such as jellybeans in shades of green, minted pea salad, and limeade.
“&” The Ampersand Shower
Think of famous pairs and things that naturally go together to build a theme around the idea of “and.” Serve food such as peanut butter and jelly, ham and cheese, mac and cheese, strawberries and cream, and milk and cookies. Create favor bags from famouscandy like Good ‘n Plenty, M&Ms, Now & Laters, and Mike & Ikes. And speaking of pairs, diapers and wipes make a great gift.
Tea for Two Shower
An afternoon tea is always a lovely idea for a baby shower, but when it’s centered around twins tea for two takes on a whole new meaning. Think elegant and shabby chic, mismatched china, finger sandwiches, scones and petit fours to create the ultimategrown-up tea party. Decorate with tea roses, silver vases and serving pieces, and sparkling glass tumblers.
There are some twin baby shower essentials that will be the same no matter which theme you choose. A twin mom needs plenty of diapers so be sure to create an extra large diaper cake, or even two diaper cakes to help stock her up for the many, many diaperchanges ahead. Be sure to check with the mom to be to find out if she will be dressing her twins alike or not, and then let your guests discreetly know so she doesn’t get a slew of matching outfits that she may not want.
