Buns in the Oven: Baby Shower Ideas for Twins

During the Christmas holiday, my sister- and brother-in-law made the wonderful announcement that she was pregnant! They gave my mother-in-law a book and written inside was a due date for when the book should be read to a new grandbaby. However, they had yet more news. Another book was revealed, announcing that there was not one, but two babies to be expected. My sister-in-law is having twins!

I cannot wait for the arrival of two new little nephews, but now my mother-in-law is a bit stumped on what theme to choose for the baby shower she is throwing. To help her out (and any mother-to-be who is expecting twins), I did a little Internet research on cute baby shower themes for twins.

Peas in a Pod

When I first started brainstorming ideas, this theme came up first, as it is pretty popular. Due to its popularity, there were many cute ideas that came up while I was searching. There were ideas for green decorations, cakes, cupcakes, cookies covered in frosting peas, and fun games including pinning the pea to the pod. It also has the great quality of being a gender neutral theme. At first, this theme might be overlooked because it is used so often, but it comes with a lot of ideas all ready to go.

Noah’s Ark

In the scriptures the animals came two by two, just like my little nephews. This theme makes decorating super easy because all you need isa boat and lots of paired animals. Themed food might be a bit more effort, but cupcakes with animals crackers on them would be cute. Also a gender neutral theme, Noah’s Ark could generate lots of cute and creative ideas.
