Baby Shower Themes for Twins

Published August 14, 2013        by Sarah

Image by donnierayjones on FlickrWhen twins are on the way, celebrating is in order!  Not only do parents enjoy the extra help in terms of diapers, wipes, and clothing, they appreciate the thought, generosity, and support of their friends and family. If you are planning baby shower for twins, make it twice as special!

Choosing a Theme

Having a theme often makes it easier to plan decorations, foods, and favors, but it is by no means a requirement. If you do choose to center your party around a particular character theme, consider:

  • Two Peas in a Pod
  • Thing 1 and Thing 2
  • Noah’s Ark
  • Twice as Nice
  • Double Trouble
  • Moon and Stars

These are popular themes for baby showers, and you will be able to find decorations, invitations, and favors that are tied to each.  For instance, Dr. Seuss has become a baby shower favorite of late; you can find accessories featuring these beloved characters, especially Thing 1 and Thing 2. Look in discount and party stores for banners, balloons, tablecloths, napkins, dishes, and more.

Going the DIY Route

You can also DIY your baby shower.  If you choose a theme that is broader, such as Two Peas in a Pod baby shower or simply Twins, you can print items from the internet, find free printable templates for cards, or find wording to make your own cards. An example:

It’s amazing, it’s exciting, and it really is true. 

Instead of one little angel, there are going to be two.

Twins for mom and dad to love,

A real blessing from above.

We must make this shower great.

The day is Sunday from 5 till 8.


Heard the forecast?  Two baby boys are predicted. But first there will be a shower! 

Twins Baby Shower Decorations

CM SDDCT3 Baby Shower Themes for TwinsDecorations simply follow the theme you’ve established. Again, you can find many accessories and items for popular themes from party stores, discount stores, and online sources.  As always, you can make your own.  For the Two Peas in a Pod party, for instance, you could make this cute – and useful – decoration (idea from Cutest-Baby-Shower-Ideas):

You’ll need:

  • Yard of green fleece
  • Ribbon to tie the ends of the fleece
  • String
  • 10-30 diapers
  • Green cellophane

To make:

  1. Roll the diapers up as you would a jelly roll.  Tie with string.
  2. Bundle the rolled diapers up (using 5-15 per “pea,” depending on how big you want it).
  3. Wrap the bundled diapers in green cellophane.
  4. Put the “peas” in the center of your fleece, with the tied ends down.
  5. Gather the ends of the fleece and tie with ribbon. Cut off any excess fleece.

This is a great centerpiece and a great twin baby gift!

Shower Favors

KA 23008GN Baby Shower Themes for TwinsFor twins baby shower favors, you could do something quite similar.  Wrap two round bath salts or fizzies in green cellophane and tie the ends with a bit of ribbon. You have a mini pea pod that works great for a parting gift.

The food is another area in which you can let the twin theme run wild.  Some great choices include:

  • Animal crackers. Put two of each animal into a mini cupcake liner and serve.
  • Double Stuff Oreos.
  • Double fudge brownies.
  • Double-decker sandwiches.
  • Fresh peas in a pod.
  • Peanut butter and jelly finger sandwiches or crackers.
  • Cupcakes or cookies decorated to coordinate with theme (ex: Noah’s Ark party could have pairs of elephant, dog, butterfly, etc. cookies).
  • Arrange toothpicks with two olives, two cubes of cheese, and two cubes of ham or pepperoni. Put toothpicks on a platter surrounded by crackers.
  • Traditional baby shower favorites – finger sandwiches, chips and dip, veggies, deviled eggs, fruit, mini meatballs, etc.  Hungry mamas won’t care much about the theme when it’s lunch time!

Twins are indeed cause for celebration.  Make sure to arrange decorations and foods in pairs to play up the twin theme.  Whether you choose a theme like Thing 1 and Thing 2 or leave it more open, you will be sure to make the expectant parents’ day.
