Baby shower ideas for twins!
It’s a double shower!
You are pregnant! Congratulations! Now is the time to go to your doctor’s office and take your first look at your baby. Nothing is as exciting as that first ultrasound. But guess that? A surprise awaits you. Turns out the bouncing bundle of joy he’s so eager to meet actually has a partner. You are having twins! It’s still too early to tell the genders, but the excitement she feels is contagious when she breaks the news to her family that there will not only be one addition to the family, but in fact, there will be two!
Planning a baby shower is always an adventure, but when you’re planning for two, there are a few extra things to keep in mind.
A theme? Or two?
One-of-a-kind baby showers often have a single theme, whether it’s animals, Disney, or Dr. Seuss. But when you have two, why not double the theme? After all, there are two beans to think about. The most commonly used is the “Two Peas in a Pod” idea, because those two little sweet peas will snuggle very close to mom’s tummy. But if you’re a fan of children’s literature, how about “Thing 1 and Thing 2,” the lovable characters from Dr. Seuss’s Cat in the Hat? Another cute idea could be “The perfect couple”. To get mad. Make the theme yours. The key is to emphasize that this is a double party, whether you know the sexes of your babies. If you don’t know and plan on not finding out genders, be sure to keep the topic neutral. As a general rule, the color scheme will give guests a good idea of whether your babies will be boys or girls.
The table sets the mood
The biggest expenses incurred when having a baby are expensive items such as car seats, clothing, cribs, formula (if the mother does not plan to breastfeed), and diapers. Having two immediately doubles the expense. A great way to help out an expecting mom of twins is to create attractive yet functional centerpieces for the party. Have you ever seen a diaper cake? It may sound strange, but if you find the right way to do it, a diaper cake can not only be an incredibly interesting and engaging centerpiece, it will also be a topic of conversation and more importantly help the new family. reduce one of your biggest baby expenses!
Other great table decorating ideas include things like small bottles of baby soaps and shampoos, baby lotions, diaper cream, or baby powder. They may not sound glamorous, but they can be sprinkled among ribbons and other festive styles to create a beautiful yet functional display.
If you know the mom-to-be doesn’t intend to breastfeed, get as many bottles of formula as possible and make a standing pyramid, reminiscent of champagne fountains at more formal events.
It’s all in the decoration
Remember, whether it’s a boy or a girl (or a surprise), the theme is multiple. Make sure the decorations match that theme. Stick to your chosen color scheme, but when decorating with balloons, for example, always put two together; two balloons tied to each chair, two streamers at the entrance, maybe even a double party hat on each plate. Yes, be silly and creative. Most showers include some kind of fun games, let the games double as well. Whatever games or prizes you choose, make sure they match the theme in both color and number. If you can make the decorations serve the baby-related needs the mom-to-be might have, even better. Don’t forget that she will keep all the decorations after the party is over. Decorate with baby blankets, rattles, cute twins themed clothes. You say it. Anything mommy might need, see if you can get it into the decor.
Want to create a shower that people keep talking about even after Baby 1 and Baby 2 are out of diapers and into preschool? Take some of these ideas and execute them. Make it a family event and the memory of that moment will last a lifetime.
