Twins Baby Shower

Ideas for a
Baby Shower for Twins

Planning a baby shower for twins? Check out these cute ideas when having a twin baby shower including invitations, themes and decorations, food, twin baby shower games and ideas for twin baby gifts.

The very first thing to decide is: If you are the mother-to-be, do you want someone to organize it for you? Start asking now it will take about 2 months to organize a twin baby shower, well you could cram it in over 4 weeks or so but that will take all the fun out of it don’t you think?


Are you throwing a surprise baby shower for twins? Ask the family of the mom-to-be for help with the guest list, location, a date and time that suits.

Whichever option you decide on – get prepped by taking a look at our Twin Baby Shower Checklist  

A twin baby shower is usually held a few months before the birth of the twins, and is often the last event held before the big twin birth announcement. 

Choosing a Baby Shower Theme



There are a range of themes which are great for a twin baby shower, here are a few of my favorites:

Pea Pod Twins Theme




Why not host a twins baby shower or birthday party with this adorable “Two Peas in a Pod” party theme. 


Color coordinate with green and white, decorating cupcakes with two peas in a pod with fondant using little balls of green candy and icing.


Theme includes custom bunting banner that puts the guests of honor front and center, and then why not go and style your buffet table with Two Peas in a Pod favor boxes and treat containers. 


Finally, complete the tables with Two Peas in a Pod centerpiece and make sure everyone is ready to party with twin photo booth props!

Cute Animals


There are loads of super cute 

animal themes you can use but my favorite is the family of elephants.

If it’s a boy / girl twin baby shower, then why not use both blue and pink themed decorations and mix and match.



Expanding on the Elephant theme – create favor boxes with peanuts in, or look at the numerous other ideas which are so adorable..

Sugar and Spice

How about a Sugar and Spice Theme?

You could serve spiced tea and spiced apple cider with sweet treats and gingerbread men. 

For a center piece you could have a lovely big bowl or platter of potpourri with a spicy fragrance and another bowl of something sweet, sugar and spice.
