Twins Baby Shower Ideas
It's twice as nice with a Twins Baby Shower!
Luckily, though, planning a Baby Shower for Twins isn't twice the work - not with the cute and creative twins party ideas below! All your planning has been done for you, everything from twins invitations, games, favors, decorations and food.
Having twins is such a blessing for a mom-to-be, and you are going to help everyone have double the fun at this party.
Let's get going!!
Twins Baby Shower Invitations
Depending on your theme, you could use a cute verse to let your guests know that this is a Twins theme baby shower:
Two Peas in a Pod
2 Wonderful for Words
Two of a Kind
Twice as Nice
They Came Two by Two (Noah's Ark)
To make your own twins shower invitations:
At a craft or scrapbook store, buy light colored cardstock - i.e. light blue, pink, yellow, light green. Also buy two or three stamps of the number "2", each stamp being a different size of "2" (you could buy a big "2", medium "2" and small "2". Then with a a coordinating color of ink, stamp your cardstock with your different sized "2" stamps. Cut them out to size (5x7 is a good size and you can get 2 from an 8.5x11 sheet of cardstock). Then print out or write out your twins baby shower details onto white (or coordinating color) paper and fasten it to your stamped cardstock with tape, glue or scrapbooking embellishments.

Twins Baby Shower Decorations
You could have a general theme of "Twins" or you could choose a specific twin party theme:
Peas in a Pod
Oreo Double Stuff
Double Mint Gum
Double Header (baseball/
Your guests are going to be seeing double, because it is two of everything at a Twins Baby Shower!
Start your decorations by stringing a clothesline up in the party room and hang two onesies, two pairs of baby shoes, two little hooded towels, two bibs, etc. Color coordinate the baby items if the twins are a boy and girl - hang a pink onesie & a blue onesie, a girl's bib and a boy's bib, a little girls dress and a little pair of overalls, etc.
Next, you'll want to get two sets of streamers (pink & blue for a girl & boy, or blue & white for 2 boys, or pink & white for 2 girls - or any other fun color combo) and string them together throughout the party room, mainly on the ceilings. Put several twists in the streamers as you string them up.
You could cut out big "2" numbers from colored or patterned cardstock and tape them up on the walls.
It is a lot of fun to decorate with a twins theme of something that implies 2, double, or twins. For example: you could choose Double Mint gum, Double stuff Oreos, Twix candy bars, etc. If you chose a Double Stuff theme, you could decorate in brown and white (and throw in pink or blue to make it "babyish"), and you could make large "Oreos" from dark brown paper and using a black marker & large stencil trace out "O R E O" on the brown circles. Buy brown and white balloons to place around the room. You could include a "double stuff" poem on your invitations, for example:
It has been almost 9 months
And Julie Smith has had enough!
So come celebrate her twins baby shower
for her two little Double Stuff!
Twins Baby Shower Games
Double Diaper Diaper Tag Team
Preparation: For this twins baby shower game you will need a cloth diaper, several safety pins, a doll (or teddy bear) and some nimble fingers!
How to play this twins baby shower game: Have the guests get into teams of 2 (Twins!). Each team is timed with a stop watch as they both attempt to quickly and neatly put the cloth diaper on the baby doll with the safety pins. The hard part is that each team member can only use one hand! You could tie one hand behind their backs, if that would help. The expectant mother judges who is the winner based on the quality of the diaper job and how fast it was done.
How Many Pairs?
All that laundry we have all done in our lives certainly pays off in this baby shower game!
Preparation: Before the shower, buy 10 - 12 pairs of baby socks (0 - 6 months). Buy different colors & patterns.
How to play this twins baby shower game: During the shower, separate all the socks and mix them up in one big pile in the middle of the room. Then, one at a time, have each guest pair up as many pairs of socks as they can in 15 seconds - or time each guest to see how long it takes them to pair up all of the socks. The one with the most matching pairs or the best time is the champion!
Baby Shower Concentration
Also known as Baby Shower Memory Game. Everyone really has a lot fun with this game and there are multiple prizes, which of course everyone enjoys! There is 2 of everything here! Match the pairs of words by remembering where everything is throughout the course of the game. Click here for

How to play this Twins baby shower game: Give each guest a copy of the list and a pen or pencil. They must unscramble all of the words. Give them 5 - 6 minutes to unscramble the words, or play until someone unscrambles all of the words. The first one to unscramble all of the words or unscramble the most words in the allotted time is the winner!
Oreo Double Stuff Song
You could play this game if you are doing an Oreo theme. This is a fun game that brings out the creativity in your guests! Divide the guests into groups of 4 or 5 and give each team a copy of the OREO song lyrics: The song goes like this: Oh,oh, oh, ice cold milk and an Oreo Cookie, they forever go together , what a classic combination. When a dark , delicious cookie meets an icy cold sensation, like the one and only creamy, crunchy, chocolate, O-R-E-O
Then tell each team to create their own lyrics about twins, motherhood, babies, nursing etc. to sing to the tune of the original OREO song. The expectant mother is the judge and decides who has the best baby Oreo song! Little travel packs of Oreos would be an obvious & cute prize for the winners.

• A flower bouquet would be a beautiful way to freshen up your Twins baby shower and bring a stunning centerpiece into your decor. For a twins flower centerpiece, make sure that your flower bouquet has two of the main flower. For example, if you had little carnations, babys breath and greenery, you could have 2 big roses or lilies to make it a "Twins" bouquet.
• Balloon Bouquet - This is a great baby shower centerpiece idea because you can match the colors of your party decorations for a twins baby shower. Buy two balloon bouquets, one for each twin! They can be smaller bouquets (less balloons) - that way you won't have to spend twice as much. If there are boy twins, buy 2 blue bouquets. For girl twins, buy 2 pink bouquets. And for a boy & girl twins, buy 1 pink & 1 blue. Or match your specific shower colors.
