Twins are double the fun, right? For mom and dad, though, they are double the work! Double the blessings, to be sure, but double the clothing, double the diapers, the bibs, the food... Help mom and dad out with a twin baby shower. Here are some fun themes that celebrate twins and the double love they bring to a family.
There are plenty of cute baby shower themes for twins, and you could also opt for a more general twin theme for the entire party. Let's take a look at two popular themes to get your creative juices flowing.
Peas-in-a-Pod. It's very easy to do peas-in-a-pod. Your baby shower favors, for instance, can be several green jelly beans wrapped in green cellophane. Twist and tie at the end, and you have an adorable pea pod. For decorations, you can get balloons and green cellophane. Wrap an inflated balloon in the cellophane and make little twists at both ends to resemble a pea. For twins, simply do two balloons – or two peas in the pod! You can do this with triplets as well. You can also:
Thing 1 and Thing 2. Another very fun baby shower theme, this Dr. Seuss-inspired party is sure to be a success. Again, this is a fairly popular theme – and rightly so! Because of this, you will be able to find premade supplies. You will also be able to make a great deal of the decorations, favors, and food on your own. When decorating for a Thing 1 and Thing 2 baby shower, use lots of red, blue, and aqua balloons – not pale shades, but bold, bright colors. Find tablecloths or napkins featuring bold red and white stripes; dishes and flatware can be bright red, blue, bright yellow or green. Very Dr. Seussian.
Twin baby showers are all about double the fun. Make sure to acknowledge and welcome two babies in all of your decorations and details: twice-baked potatoes, double cheeseburgers, twin pops, two flavors of drinks or ice cream, sets of two stuffed animals, and, hopefully, two sets of great baby gifts!
