When 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:
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
Decorations 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):
This is a great centerpiece and a great twin baby gift!
For 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:
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.
